The Bistro Rutherglen is a family restaurant on Glasgow's Southside.

The Bistro has been running for 25 years and for the last 20 has been owned and operated by the Freeman family. Their husband and wife team Helen and Tully use a simple formula - keep it in the family.

Helen and Derek do the cooking while Tully, along with his daughter-in-law Annette and grandaughters, are your front of house hosts. It is a truly family business where they strive to make your visit a truly memorable experience every time, with nothing ever too much trouble.

Tully makes every customer feel like an old friend, and a truly warm welcome awaits anyone who comes through the door. The Bistro has been awarded the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence since 2010 - and sit TOP of Trip Advisor for restaurants in South Lanarkshire for the 7th year running.

The standard of food is second to none, with every dish being cooked fresh on order.  Every dish is prepared with the love, care and attention that you will only find in a family business. We use only the freshest local produce from Scotlands premier catering suppliers. The Bistro has built up a great reputation over the last 20 years with 95% of our business coming from word of mouth.

Like any small business we dont have vast sums of money for advertising and marjeting so we REALLY take care of our customers - that's the key to our success. It has taken our family years of hard work and dedication to our customers and business to achieve this, that's why we still treat every single person who comes through our door, both new and old, with the same importance.

We do everything from a fully cooked breakfast to a full outside catering service.  The Bistro is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner with a fully licensed bar which boasts a great selection of competitively priced wines, beers and spirits.  We also have an exciting new wine list with both new world and old world wines - there's something for everyone and we strive to give all our customers value for money on every front. 

We recently celebrated our 20th anniversary, which is a milestone for any business. Our new a la carte menu is now up and running with a great selection of food to suit every palate.  So whether you're an old friend or a friend in waiting, pop into The Bistro. You won't be disappointed.

Like we say, let our family take care of your family.
