GLASGOW

My sort of a Guy!

Do you remember my Boudoir cocktails last week? Well before that, the whole entourage went for dinner to a place I had not been before (how surprising for me!)…Guy’s restaurant in Merchant City.

I was very impressed from the minute I walked in. The first thing that you notice is the warm environment and then allowing your eyes to wonder you see something unusual for a restaurant. A whole gallery of beautiful paintings, which yes you can buy if you wish, it takes place within it. Colourful, well-thought paintings hang on the walls, above your table, the next table and the tables across the room too. I really love and appreciate art therefore the whole concept made me warm to the place right away.

Can I please have this one?

This restaurant’s good impressions did not stop there. The staff is trained to perfection, and I mean to PERFECTION! Professional, polite and pleasant to a level I have never seen anywhere else I have been. And what can I say about the food…you need to taste for yourselves however I would go there again and again and again no second thoughts. All this was coupled with live jazz music which made an appropriate background to the interiors and cuisine.

Chris got the Haggis for starter and the venison on puy lentils for his main. He said they were really good.

I got the ravioli in lobster sauce for starter and the fillet steak for a main…yum yum!

Lyn decided on the duck breast for starter and the chilli chicken risotto for her main. She liked it very much too! This girl really enjoys her spicy food ;-)

But then Colin decided to be brave and he went for the raw scallops for starter and steak tartare for his main…he did not enjoy it very much but then he did not expect to either. He decided that raw food tastes of nothing. I doubt that the restaurant bears any responsibility about this. It is rather Colin’s adventurous nature that may need reassessment :-P

And now you are going to tell me “Ok darling…show us what you had for dessert”. We decided to go for cocktails and skip dessert (unfortunately that is, because I would love to try their desserts).

Needless though, I definitely and blindfolded I would go back to Guy’s and I recommended it for a special night out. When it comes to restaurants, that Guy is my sort of a guy!

Which is your favourite restaurant?
