Dear diners, to book for groups of more than 6 people, please contact the restaurant directly.
Fine food, fine wine, fine times are all to be had at Glasgow’s La Bonne Auberge, a veteran brasserie-style Mediterranean restaurant that has been serving diners in the midst of the city centre’s theatreland since 1975. La Bonne Auberge’s West Nile Street premises are currently under the guidance of innovative executive head chef Gerry Sharkey, and with many of Glasgow’s theatre district virtually on the restaurant’s doorstep, this is a destination for those wanting to dine a la carte or with a special pre-theatre menu before the show.
Such is La Bonne Auberge’s status in Glasgow that the proprietors of the restaurant have found myriad ways to give back to the community of diners that has supported them for 40-odd years, with a special offers list that sports budget Scottish or French-style breakfasts, a popular afternoon tea session (best with bubbles), two- and three-course menus plus a carafe or bottle of wine (the cellar selection here is notoriously good) for couples, and collaborations with the nearby Cineworld Cinema offering an award-winning two course dinner plus a movie ticket. Of course these offers flank what many deem to be the best a la carte Mediterranean menu in the city centre and theatreland.
La Bonne Auberge’s executive chef Gerry Sharkey has curated a number of menus covering lunch and dinner, with a popular two- or three-course prix fixe menu including dishes such as deep-fried tomato and mozzarella-filled gnocchi, a casserole of Scottish lamb and pan-fried rainbow trout with a chive beurre blanc, joining the dots between Mediterranean, Scottish and European cuisines with ease. Signature dishes come dinnertime include the steak hache served with a brandy and peppercorn sauce, wild mushroom risotto, and the adventurous loin of venison served with cauliflower puree, spiced plums and chocolate sauce. A clear winner in Glasgow’s city centre, with the Theatre Royal, the Pavilion Theatre and The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall a short walk from the restaurant’s West Nile Street address, La Bonne Auberge demands an early reservation.
Excellent food, service and Atmosphere, what more could you ask for? Perhaps slightly cheaper prices but all in all a lovely meal. I will go back.
The food was excellent and the service we received was absolutely first class. My friend and I both had omelettes and they were cooked to perfection. We cannot rate our experience highly enough.
As always delicious food which is well presented and cooked to perfection. The staff are pleasant, attentive and helpful. A great place to enjoy a meal with friends in the centre off Glasgow!
