We had booked the pre theatre deal at Oran Mor after reading various reviews but we were unfortunately disappointed with the food. We both had the smoked duck to start which was lovely but the 'catch of the day' of coley for the main was, at best, bland. It smelt incredibly fishy as it arrived at the table causing us to wonder what day it was actually caught! The lyonaise potatoes which accompanied it were swimming in oil although the broccoli floret and asparagus spear were nice enough. I foolishly ordered a dessert - dark chocolate tart with vanilla ice cream... thank god for the lovely iced carafes of fruited water which they put on the table! Without that I'm not sure I could have swallowed the tart it was so dry!
Its not all bad though, the staff were excellent - attentive and efficient but not overly so.
With so many good restaurants around Glasgow offering pre theatre deals like this one, I'm afraid we won't be rushing back here.
