Great Food! | Debbiedoy


Heard nothing but good things about The Bistro, so thought we would give it a try, and we were not disappointed, the food was lovely, big starters, big mains, shared the dessert as we were stuffed! Great service, great selection and great food - compliments to the Chef! x

The gem of Rutherglen | Anne M


A family run business serving the best food I’ve honestly ever tasted. Small restaurant friendliness is second to none not over the top prices. Always busy so book beforehand.

One word... AMAZING!!! | he4ther2018


Just home from another lovely meal in The Bistro. There were 12 of us all together. I have been many times and tried many different dishes and have never been disappointed. The portion sizes are phenomenal, I would advise if you are a pudding person then don't get a starter. 
We are always made to feel so welcome, and a big thanks to Tully for being so attentive, you are such a lovely man. Can't wait for our next trip to the bistro.

Serendipity while stranded away from home! - Dean K

Three of us found ourselves stranded in Glasgow as a storm stopped all the trains in and out of the city , we managed with great difficulty to find some accomodation in Rutherglen then set about finding a place to eat . Purely by chance the Bistro cropped up on Google. We arrived around 7pm and were greeted and seated by the owner and given menus . The menu was quite comprehensive and very varied -- not just italian fare but mexican and russian , to name but two , as well as a range of burgers-- normally I'm a little suspicious of restaurants that offer too many styles HOWEVER this case I needn't have worried . Each of us enjoyed each of our 3 courses which included Cajun chicken with pasta , beef stroganoff, and one of the tastiest Bolognese ive ever had . My own starter of farmhouse pate was in a word ...superb ! If i have one slight criticism it would be that i wouldve liked a bit more toast ! The onion relish served with it was lovely as well ! Finishing off with 3 HUGE ice cream Sundays and coffees we were well stuffed ! 
A word for the owner and staff who were very friendly and welcoming and If I find myself in Glasgow or anywhere near I would definitely call again

'Can’t believe this wee hidden gem is right on our door step' | Cocom80

Just back from the bistro with the family for sisters birthday dinner what dan I say the food just gets better on every visit.
We all had something different and everything was delicious freshly cooked from scratch the smell of everything cooking is amazing you feel as if you are abroad.

All had starters amazing choice

Sister had the steak and she is the fussiest eater ever and she said was the best she had tasted!!

Nephew gave himself a challenge the bistro double cheeseburger 2 6oz pure protein and he finished it.

Daughter had the chicken breast burger and finished every bit .

I had minute steak with mushroom and pepper sauce beautiful.

And then desserts to die for Nutella chocolate cheesecake heaven ⭐️

Can’t believe this wee hidden gem is right on our door step no need to head into town.
And bonus you can have a wine or drink and walk home because it’s local.

Staff are very friendly and attentive and nothing is an issue and their dad is the star of the show with his Cherie smile and funny stories.

If you haven’t found this place yet your missing out on beautiful food at great value make sure you pay a visit soon ❤️

'Thanks AGAIN!!!!' | Constance D

Just had lovely meal again, I have been going here for almost 20 years. Had the the veal absolutely gorgeous and plenty of it. My family member had the chicken Kiev,had a bit delicious. The service as always was great and your made to feel like part of the family. Had a nice bottle of red all reasonably priced. Although we didn't have a dessert as the main was enough for us table next to us did and they looked amazing. Very relaxed atmosphere and nothing too much trouble. Great value and choice of lunch pre-theatre and very well priced. Would highly recommend it xx

Went for Dinner midweek, 1st time in this great wee restaurant. Menu was extensive, had difficulty choosing a meal, settled for a pasta dish with prawns which was delicious. Great portion sizes and reasonably priced. Service was excellent....Can’t wait to return....
