La Bonne Auberge knows all about keeping it fresh.
The Theatreland restaurant has been thriving for more than forty years and has held an AA Rosette for twenty of them.
Find out why with today’s Big Deal on a splendid two course lunch or dinner for two.
Located on West Nile Street, the restaurant has the understated charm and elegance of a Parisian bistro while the food nods to both classic French and Mediterranean dishes.
La Bonne Auberge is well into its forth decade in Glasgow city centre, serving French and Mediterranean style food, which suggests they have perfected the recipe and have the AA Rosette to prove it.
The restaurant was named Hotel Restaurant of the Year in the inaugural Prestige Awards last year, a hospitality industry accolade voted for by the public, with finalists hand-picked by a panel of independent judges.
The cuisine combines French bistro classics with Mediterranean and global favourites.
