Great restaurant, always busy. Not the cheapest, but good food and very pleasant staff. What's not to like? Get yourself down there and have a good meal.

Great food and atmosphere and friendly staff. Only complaint would be that it took a while to get served at times, but otherwise a really good evening

Excellent staff and tasty food made our night really enjoyable. The lovely wine may have helped too :D we had the seafood platter with handcut chips and salad. So tasty!

Amazing Scottish cuisine and friendly service! Took my American friend here, and have taken a Canadian friend in the past to show them authentic (yet modern) Scottish cuisine. Market menu is really reasonable!

A really enjoyable meal in informal surroundings fronted by very pleasant, welcoming and attentive staff. Our early evening (pre- theatre) booking gave access to fixed price and a la carte menus which could be mixed and matched as desired. The man- sized portions meant that, after a superb starter of West coast seafood chowder followed by an equally tasty venison ragu with pasta there was unfortunately no space for dessert! If you haven't eaten here before, seek RBJ out- I am sure you will not be disappointed.

The restaurant is quite small but lovely - not cramped at all and with great decor. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was out of this world. We were on the set Mothers Day menu - lots of choices and all courses fresh and hot and very tasty. Lamb and steak in the steak pie melted and the presentation was great. Highly recommend this restaurant - and plan to visit many times again myself.

Food was lovely. I am not normally a sweet hand but I recommend the Honeycomb and Caramel Sundae. Unfortunately the restaurant was exceptionally noisy due to a table of 12 females sitting behind us. We could hardly hear ourselves speak because of them. Staff were very pleasant. There was a mix up with my potatoes, for which I was not charged. It was a nice touch to give us a drink at the end of our meal too. We would visit again.

From the outside it looks like an ordinary cafe, but scallops were brilliant, best I've had in ages, the roast pork superb, especially the crackling, and such a good whisky collection. All this and ice cream & tablet for dessert at the incredibly low price of £32! The service was quick and friendly too. I'm definitely going back.

This was exactly what we were looking for. An informal restaurant with good quality food and a relaxed atmosphere. There were 8 of us in the party and we were all happy with our meals, our wine, our friendly servers and I'd highly recommend it.

This is my favorite restaurant in Glasgow, thus far. The staff are really nice, and we've become regulars there over the last year. Great place for either brunch or dinner... or both! The Glasgow fry up is the best in the city, I've had.

We enjoyed an anniversary celebration for my grandparents with good food and service. We had a lovely experience and would recommend the salt and peppered squid starter , fish and chips, steak and venison ragu looking forward to going back.

I booked for our son's graduation celebration and on arrival was a little anxious-it appears like a cafe from the street -deceptive! The restaurant has simple surroundings and a varied menu offering something for everyone. Wonderful food at exceptional prices served with lashings of Glasweigan hospitality.

We live nearby and couldn't have made a better choice with us having two kids in tow too. The staff were so chatty, approachable and accommodating. Food was great value for money (£10 for a steak!) and super tasty. Thanks for having us x

I have to say that we were so looking forward to going to RBJ but sadly it does not live up to its billing!! The place itself was not the nicest but putting that aside, the food is mainly what they are allegedly recognised for. Well let me be Frank - it was if a very poor quality and at best was mediocre. So much so that 2 of our party had to return their food as it was not edible. I do not wish to comment any more as it would be negative and therefore I will sum up by saying - we will definitely not be going back.

Good food and drink. Attentive and friendly staff. Bit quiet for a Saturday night. Busy when we arrived but quiet later - if you get in before 18:30 then you can get a cheaper option or, indeed, mix and match from A la Carte.

This is great value. It's easy to find something to like on the menu, with about six to choose from. I thought my steak pie didn't quite work, but that's personal taste. My companion was delighted with her beef-based choices, and desserts were fine.

Just the place for a special occasion with friendly staff and excellent food as always. Bonus is also that it's not too far from the railway station so you can leave the car at home.

Food was very good, as was the service. Nice relaxed atmosphere too. Handy for Partick railway and subway stations. Plenty of other bar's round about if you fancy a drink before you go there.

Excellent value. A meal for 4 - 2 courses each + wine and coffees for just over £100. Tasted great and portions big enough that 3 courses would have been too much.

Perfectly pleasant wee place on Dumbarton Road. Food and ambience nice - feels a little like a really nice meal at home. A couple of touches could help raise the game, e.g. Bread before food brought out or something to nibble on with the tea/coffee.
