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.

More about La Bonne Auberge, Glasgow

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.

Welcoming, friendly, efficient staff. We had dinner & breakfast both days. Food delicious at all meals and beautifully presented. On our second evening we were going to the theatre and staff kept an eye on timing of courses for us. Very happy to recommend.

We had a lovely meal and evening at La Bonne Auberge in Glasgow. The food was excellent and the staff were professional, friendly and efficient, ensuring the meals were all served promptly. I couldn’t fault anything at all, until the bill came. We were disappointed to see a service charge had been applied to our bill, considering there were only 3 of us in the group. That’s the only reason I didn’t give it a full 6 marks. However, it would not stop us returning

We went for a pre theatre dinner. La Bonne Auberge is convenient with the Theatre Royal a short walk away. We arrived a little late but the staff were very understanding. The service was good if occasionally a little brusque. The understanding of my need for gluten free food was excellent. The menu offered good choices and the food well presented with a good balance of flavours. We will go again.

A good atmosphere and a very nice meal but this was spoilt when the bill arrived. I was very disappointed at a 12.50% service charge being automatically added to the bill. I tip according to the level and quality of service that I actually receive. (This charge was removed upon request). I was also annoyed that a Gift Voucher I had handed over on arrival had not been applied to the bill. This had to be found and only then was the value deducted from the bill.

My experience of the restaurant was first class but they did not have my booking so I will not be making bookings again via you, I am afraid. Luckily the restaurant was able to accommodate us.
