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.
Lovely, welcoming staff and great location. I have been to Bonne Auberge many times; especially on theatre visits, and have never had a complaint about the food or service. My recent visit was no exception
An excellent place to eat. Great ambience, fine food and wine and an attentive band of waiters and waitresses. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
Nice atmosphere, excellent food and service. We've not been for a while and delighted to find it's as good as ever. We look forward to our next meal.
