Our dinner, September 2016
While staying for 1 night in September 2016 at the Blythswood Square Hotel in Glasgow we went to dinner at The Restaurant, their style-driven yet elegant eatery.
Like the Sands Grill at the Old Course Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort, The Restaurant offered a Market Menu at a good value.
Both the hotel and the restaurant were glamourous. There were for example huge lampshades and inside were different classic cars printed which reminded us about their heritage.
The friendly and attentive staff took good care of us.
The only thing we didn’t like that much was that in the middle of the meal the light was suddenly so much dimmed we barely could see what we were eating. While a more romantic can be indeed achieved with dimming the lights, but when it’s too dark it can get slightly annoying. Otherwise we enjoyed our dinner very much.
We ordered one bottle of still Strathmore water, a Bumbo Cocktail – it was inspired by adventures while travelling to exotic countries around 100 to 200 years ago -, a glass of the Champagne of the month, in this case Baron de Villeboerg Brut NV, two hot chocolates, two mackerel pate with chorizo, salad and bread disc, two butternut squash tortelloni with soya butter and micro herbs, one S’mores cheese cake and one plum frangipane.
All was delicious, modern and very nicely presented as expected from such an upscale venue.
The bill was 81.70 GBP (ca. 92.30 Euro / ca. 105.30 USD).
We would return and try their new restaurant offerings since the Blythswood Square has has/will join the Principal Hotel Collection which should further enhance the appeal of this beautiful landmark hotel in the heart of Glasgow.
Would we recommend this restaurant to a friend? YES!
Would we want to enjoy lunch/dinner again at this restaurant in our future? YES!
Thank you and safe travels.
