Ian Brown Food & Drink South Side, Glasgow

Scottish

98 reviews

Run by the award-winning, eponymous chef and his wife, Ian Brown Restaurant is a relaxed and friendly neighbourhood hotspot. The décor is elegantly simple – check the Paul Hodgkiss hardwood fittings - and the service is informal and professional. The setting may be suburban but the cooking would give many a respected city centre restaurant a very stiff run for their money.

Lebowskis South South Side, Glasgow

Bar Food, Steaks & Grill, Burgers

Not yet rated - be the first to review!

Lebowskis South opened permanently in the summer of 2016, almost a decade after the original Lebowskis appeared in Finnieston. The Nithsdale Road branch retains some of the quirky spirit of the film which inspired the brand - check the names of the cocktails and the bowling skittle lights. At the same time, they have, as their website puts is, grown up and moved to the 'burbs. Expect a decor which mixes stripped back walls and bare, hanging light bulbs with artfully recycled furniture. Acoustic live music, a weekly pub quiz and Lebowskis' signature range of White Russian cocktails are among the attractions.

£10Offer: £10 for a burger and drink

    Small but packs a punch

    I love this restaurant! Small, but has all the colours, flavours and smells of any good Spanish tapas restaurant.The staff are friendly, the tapas is gorgeous..heavy on the garlic, just as I like it!. Tuesdays all dishes, or most are £2.50 and there is a great 3 for £9.99 5pm deal. Great venue 15 mins bus ride from my school on way home, and easy to get 4 from Battlefield back home.

    Best steak in town!!!

    Decided to book at last minute. Possibly one of the best decisions I've made in a while. The steak and chicken skewers were cooked to perfection and the side of broccoli done in chilli and garlic was a great twist on boring old veg. Overall a lovely meal. Waiting staff were very efficient too. We will definitely be back.Getting 20% off food through 5pm was a great deal.
