Restaurant is well situated on Sauchiehall street. We had the kebab sticks, pork, chicken and steak served on a delicious sizzling skillet of tomato and vegetable sauce. The vegetables in the sauce were small chopped peppers, onions, courgettes and mushrooms. There were also dipping sauces for the various meat, which was cooked to perfection and lovely and tender. The restaurant seating is mainly booths which are more suited to 2 people rather than 4 as the tables are quite small, but there are free standing tables which can be pushed together for larger groups. The waiters were very polite and friendly and service was quick. Lovely décor and attention to detail adds to the atmosphere.
Delicious food, quiet environment for a Sunday brunch. Would highly recommend this place. We ordered the pork shoulder pie special and the pollock with jamón Iberico, both of which were highlights of the meal.
With its warm decor and friendly service, Glasgow’s Ember Restaurant feels like a home away from home, and this relaxing vibe combined with the menu packed full of Mediterranean favourites keeps hungry Glaswegians coming back to its location in the city centre again and again. From German schnitzel to French confit duck, plus an array of Italian pastas and pizzas and market-fresh seafood, Ember Restaurant’s menu caters to all tastes.
We recommend beginning with the chilli tiger prawns before moving on to the signature dish: Ember Sticks (flame-grilled skewers of meat and fish served on a skillet with a tangy tomato sauce, vegetables and a side of chips, rice or mashed potato). Finish it all off with some creme brulee, or for an extra decadent treat go for the chef’s fondue (fresh strawberries, banana, chopped waffles and marshmallow with a Belgian chocolate dipping sauce). Situated on Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow’s city centre, a trip to Ember Restaurant is an ideal way to end a day spent shopping in the city, or to fuel up before hitting the nearby pubs and clubs.
