This eatery is south of the river but don't panic as it's also next door to Shields Road subway station, four stops and a few minutes from Buchanan Street subway station in the city centre, so there are no issues with accessibility. Only open since 2012, the venue quickly established itself as one of the best places in Glasgow to eat seafood although the word café in its title is a slight misnomer given the sophisticated à la carte, chic décor and marble bar: this is very much a restaurant. Three courses could start with Cumbrae oysters perhaps or masala- dressed Portland crab with avocado, mango and lime; hand-dived scallops from Barra with manchego salad, apple and tomato dressing as a main; toasted butterscotch mousse, toffee pudding and milk ice cream for dessert. If dropping by for lunch or an early evening meal during the week, there is a set price menu that represents pretty good value for money.
