Great food, friendly staff and good atmosphere

It was quite quiet fairly early on Wednesday evening. We'd booked, but probdidnt need to! Staff were attentive, and friendly. Started off sitting outside, but it was actually much nicer inside, with the added bonus of a record shop attached!

Gender neutral bathrooms were a bonus.

We both had the tofish and chips - like other reviewers we LOVED the chips! R had the toasted donut ice cream sandwich, which was also fab, although filling. Would definitely go back!

huge menu - a luxury for 🌱 vegans

We both had the burger with chips. We l o v e d the chips! Some of the best we ever had - seriously and they have vegan mayonnaise - with which you can always make me happy 😃. I enjoyed the burger 🍔 - however the Seitan patty is just not for us. It might be super delicious for Seitan lovers. We enjoyed the bun and all the rest of the ingredients of the burger though. I had extra artichokes in it, which was a tasty new experience 😊 Very recommendable place to enjoy oneself in the city center of Glasgow.

Pros: huge vegan menu & lots of choice, cosy & nice atmosphere & friendly service , open minded & inspiring place to be

Food is ok but bland

The service was very friendly and, although they were fully booked, they spontaneously found a place for us.
The food, however, was very unsalted and bland by our standards (as in practically all Irish, English and Scottish restaurants), which is why I am not overly enthusiastic now. But there is a good choice of menus.

Pros: spontaneous reservation was possible, friendly staff

Cons: food was not salted and bland

Very good

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal here. The menu has a good variety and the staff was friendly. The drinks were also great! The only reason I rated it 4 instead of 5 stars was because my (non vegan) husband wasn’t impressed with his pizza and my whole food, plant based, no oil mother couldn’t really find an option that fit her restricted diet so she settled. Both I and my non vegan father thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

Not for me

I went here because it was near our hotel and top rated. But the service was not really god (very slow but the restaurant was not crowded) and our food was very greasy. Two stars because it is vegan only.

The food was really good, we tried a couple of different dishes and were particularly impressed with the Mac and cheese as it was virtually indistinguishable from the dairy version.
Highly recommend coming here!

Most salmony carrot salmon yet

Came in for a date with myself and brought a book to stay a while, staff were lovely, pleased the menu was fully vegan I ordered the salmon cream cheese bagel. Was so delicious I couldn’t believe it. It’s not for the faint hearted the flavour was really powerful. The bagel itself might have been homemade? Really soft and lovely. I followed it up with a hot chocolate that was also top notch. Would recommend.

Great food, gluten-free options, nice staff

We really enjoyed the food, and the staff was nice. It's not always easy finding gluten-free vegan food, so we were glad that they had plenty of options, including gluten-free pizza, which was quite good. Be aware that if you are going during tourism season, they might be booked and not able to get you in. So if you have your heart set, make reservations ahead. We walked a long way in the cold rain (in July) to go back for a second time - to get there and then find out they could not seat us, and in addition, we couldn't get take out (they don't do take out). But that's not their fault - it's a good thing they are busy! So make reservations!

Top notch vegan food

Brilliant spot for lunch or dinner. Really warm and cosy interior. The food was delicious. We had olives, to-fish and chips, and a side of Mac n cheese. We inhaled it! The beer and wine selection was also great. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend it ❤️

Pros: Completely plant based, Good drinks selection , Friendly staff

Wir hatten Mac´n´Cheese und No-Fish´n´Chips.

Die Mac´n´Cheese waren schön cremig, das Knoblauchbrot dazu war sehr lecker.
Die No-Fish´n´Chips waren aus Tofu mit Noriblättern. Ich hätte mir gewünscht, dass der Tofu länger mit den Noriblättern zusammen "eingelegt" worden wäre, damit es einen fischigeren Geschmack angenommen hätte. War aber zusammen mit den Chips sehr lecker. Für das ultimative Fish´n´Chips-Erlebnis wäre Essig noch cool gewesen, war aber auch mit Zitrone gut.

Pros: komplett vegan, Kartenzahlung möglich, hat einen Freisitz

Great Mac n Cheese

This relaxed, airy space was perfect for an early dinner after a full-on day. Good choice of food- the Mac n cheese is excellent. Staff are friendly and the food is good value.

Tasty food, but confusing opening times

I went here a few times whilst in Glasgow as the weather was lovely and there is a ledge outdoor space where you can bask in sunshine.
The first evening I had tofish & chips, mushroom toast and an Eton mess for pudding.
I can’t really fault the food as the flavours were good and the portions were good also. I particularly enjoyed the Eton mess as a treat with the sweet cream, a good amount of strawberries, which felt just right for this time of year and evening. If I’m really picky the Eton Mess could have had more meringue and more bite, but that’s being really picky.
That evening I also got to talk to some friendly locals, which was lovely.
I went back the next day for some coffee, which was decent for what I’d call a pub coffee.
I also wanted to return Sunday, but was told by a member of staff arriving at 11 that despite the opening outs on HappyCow ad their website, they don’t open until 12. That needs some investigating and confirming.

Pros: Sunny outdoor seated area, Good portion sizes, Nice specials and desserts

Cons: Opening times confusing, Coffee could be better

They don't always serve food

We visited three times: The first time the kitchen was closed because of a gig, the second time we got some food which was nice, nothing special though and the third time the kitchen was closed again (at 8 o'clock). So don't go too hungry in case you'll need to find another place.

Endroit sympa, cuisine de qualité variable

Le haggis végétal est très réussi, le to-fish & chips est décevant, les plats frits n'étaient ni mauvais ni vraiment bons.

Pros: Des plats typiques en version vegan, Ambiance et personnel sympathiques

Cons: Tous les plats ne sont pas réussis

My favourite place to have a relaxed meal in Glasgow

The food is amazing. The service is very friendly but also unintrusive. The atmosphere is nice. When there are plenty of tables free, I feel comfortable just reading a book and not rushing my meal. So it's my go-to place when visiting Glasgow on my own.

Pros: Delicious food, Some unusual options, Great staff

Délicieux Tofish and chips

Très beau resto cozzy au centre de Glasgow. Meilleur fish and chip que j'ai mangé de ma vie 😅 la panure est légère et le tofu est tendre.

Pros: 100% végane, Grand espace cozzy, Situation géographique

Cons: Service au comptoir dans une section, Doit réserver la fin de semaine

Really nice, will definitely come back

The whole place is lovely, very nice atmosphere and staff are very friendly and welcoming. Food was fantastic, took a while to come out but was all clearly fresh which made it worth the wait. It was also quite busy when we went so was to be expected.

Also has a record shop right inside the place, which was very cool to look around and passed the time whilst waiting for our food to arrive.

Pros: All vegan , Great atmosphere , Record shop

Cons: Can take a while for food at busy times
