With Under the Grill I haven’t set out to educate food lovers in the West of Scotland, it’s simply an honest comment on my eating out experiences which cover restaurants in Glasgow and Ayrshire with a few geographical wild cards flung in for good measure. I don’t pad out reviews with meaningless pics and prefer to concentrate on hard facts about the quality of the food in relation to whats being charged and the overall experience
I’ve tried to restrict reviews to places I have visited in the last eighteen months as you will be well aware a lot can change in eighteen minutes in any culinary establishment! Your comments and recommendations would be most welcome.
Word On The Street
Was back at the Raven in Renfield St for dinner last week and it’s just gotten better if that was at all possible.Tried a beer called Glad Eye for the first time and was super impressed with that both in the bottle and on draft.(young lady that served me didn’t know what a glad eye was…..I had to put her straight and no I didn’t mention a Japs Eye!)
Great to see a place like the Raven doing so well having barely opened to the public two months ago, it honestly felt that it had been there for years and the staff had been working together for a lifetime. I spoke with one of the servers and I was asking how things were now the rose tinted specs were gone and she said truthfully…. “I like coming to work…. it really is a team effort and unlike other places I’ve worked I enjoy what I do”…….I think that says it all!
Having experienced the platter before in preparation I didn’t have a great deal of lunch however lets just say………….I didn’t leave hungry!!
10 out of 10 on all fronts………..well done!! See my earlier review at http://underthegrill.co.uk/2014/06/26/the-raven-renfield-st-glasgow/
