Amazing value for money. The best squid I have ever tasted! Staff are all very attentive. One of the best restaurants in Glasgow. Will be back.
An absolute gem in the west end...and not yet in Finnieston!! Fantastic food...bursting with flavours. Great service from people who know how to look after you.
amazing food and overall experience was spot on. Staff were very attentive. Very good value for money, could easily charge more for the quality you receive. Defo be back !!
Absolutely perfect evening, myself and wife rolled up half an hour early and were seated right away, service throughout the evening was first class, nothing was a hassle for them. Our menu was explained in full and the way the taster menu works and if we wanted to match wines to each course. Then the food started. WOW is all I could hear from my wife, will the occasional OH MY GOD, and she was right the food was sensational. Again on service the dishes were explained in full and we were offered fresh drinks as the glasses emptied. As the plates were cleared fresh cutlery appeared and the experience continued. The star of the show for us was the duck egg and also the ham haugh, these two dishes were so memorable that we were still talking about them this morning, the theatrics of the ham dish was amazing and the taste of the duck egg with wild mushrooms and white truffle was sublime. Our seats were located directly across from the pass and again as part of the dining experience my wife loved watching the calm but very professional chef plate up with the most delicate of touches. We eventually asked for the bill (not wanting to leave) even asked if they done bed and breakfast rates. We were treated with a bit of Glasgow banter as the check slip reads nothing but "the damage" very amusing, however for two people for a five course tasting menu an added cheese board and plenty of soft and alcoholic refreshments a latte and an espresso costing no more than one of the kids computer games we were delighted. This wee diamond in Glasgow is more than good good this is a place for THE DINING EXPERIENCE, the food the service and even the small touches of the music choice made everything perfect. No complaints, no cagoule have dones just sensational. Thank you and we will be back time and time again. Kindest regards Mags and Chris Forbes
We went to 111 by Nico for Dinner on Monday 2nd January after getting engaged over the Christmas period. We actually didn't know what to expect when booking, and when we arrived saw that the menu was a 6 course taster menu with option of wine pairings. We were happy to go ahead with this (and readily agreed to the wine pairings). Each course, and matched wine, was Fantastic! The flavours brought out in each dish were superb, and we had nothing bad to say at all about the food! My fiancee loved it too! The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and we had a quiet booth to ourselves. We will certainly be back. Well done Nico!
A special birthday meal with my wife was made extra special by dining at 111 by Nico. The welcome was warm and friendly as was the service. The food was simply wonderful! This was one of the best meals I've had in a restaurant at ANY price EVER however it was only £20 for three courses. Every taste was a joy and cooked to perfection. Nico and his team deserve all the recognition they can get - this restaurant is a joy! Don't forget to book at it was full on a Tuesday night - no wonder! A first class dining experience.
I am a vegetarian, it is never an easy decision to eat out...I love cooking even for myself. So what a pleasant surprise to find a restaurant that included a tasting menu with people like me in mind. From the very point of entry the service and staff were excellent. I originally decided to try 111 @ Nico because of the kitchen employment ethos, people's lives can be turned around by a caring society. As for the food it was extremely tasty and varied, personally one of the courses was too similar but that wasn't really a surprise with the choice of pea and asparagus being quite predominant but without a doubt it was delicious...I am not easily pleased in restaurants I don't think they do there job very well for non meat eaters. So thank you very much and I will return soon.
Great experience. We had the 5 course tasting menu, with matched wines. My wife doesn't like dairy, and they effortlessly tweaked a couple of the dishes to accommodate us. The restaurant was full on a busy Saturday evening, and had a great buzz. The food was prepared to a very high standard - every plate a winner. Only slight dissapointent was that the dessert on the menu was not what we were actually given - they blamed a printing mix up as they were changing the menu, but I felt they should have at least advised us of that when we opted for the 5 course fixed option menu - instead they said nothing and just presented us with the (entirely different) dessert than that advertised. As it contained cream, we then had a delay while they took my wife's plate away to make it dairy free. Overall though it was a great meal with some nicely judged wine pairings, not cheap but worth it for a treat.
Superb from start to finish. This was a birthday treat for hubby. 2 great menus to select from a 2 or 3 course or 5 course tasting menu with or without wines. We selected the 3 course menu as hubby noticed Rabbit and he loves that. Hubby has the scallops and tiger prawns, rabbit and creme brulee. I had the vegetable terrine, spelt and brownies. 2 starters bread with fab paprika butter and the vegetable chips, 2 sides fennel and apple salad and the chips for hubby. Great bottle of gavi and coffee and amareti biscuits. Rounded off a great meal in a cosy surroundings. Great to watch all the dishes going by and the smoke smell from the ham hock was really nice. Service was superb and all the staff fab. Hubby now wants to go back and do the tasting menu!
