    Great tapas, great service

    Love this bar, it's great for after work drinks and food. The tapas offer is great value and the food is good. The staff were really friendly, one guy let us try his homemade triple sec before we left for free. It was fairly quiet when we arrived at 6, but got slightly busier later.

Mediterranean flavours in Merchant City

Brutti Compadres – it means ugly mates – is a laid back and stylish cafe bar tucked away in Virginia court. Built on the site of the original tobacco exchange, it is an innovative space that combines a soft industrial decor with witty pieces of art. If you can imagine a hip Barcelona bar and kitchen with a Glasgow accent then you are in the same ballpark as Brutti Compadres. When the weather is benevolent, the terrace tables underline the continental atmosphere.

Little plates, big flavours

Tapas-style little plates; inventive appealing sandwiches, salads, soups and nibbles vie for attention with crispy pizza and vibrant pasta dishes at Brutti Compadres. The chefs in the open plan kitchen like to change the menu with the seasons. Typical dishes might be a plate of padron peppers, some white asparagus or pizza topped with capers, anchovies and mozzarella. From pulled pork and chorizo sandwiches to fish stew or squid in its own ink, the dishes tend to be simple but big on flavour. Customers are welcome to graze on a plate of Spanish almonds or settle in for a feast of halloumi and chickpea stew, some cheese and bacon croquettes, grilled sardines and affogato dessert.
