Square Meal Review of Cafe Gandolfi & Bar Gandolfi ?

The ground-floor Cafe Gandolfi is a Glasgow legend that dates all the way back to 1979. It’s all very wooden & tactile, & full of snackers having a sourdough baguette or something more substantial & Scottish, such as haggis, venison, or smoked haddock. In 2002, the owners also opened Bar Gandolfi upstairs, a smaller & more contemporary space. You can’t book a table here but it's worth waiting for one as there's a pleasing selection of simple treats on offer. Smoked trout pate, is a typical way to start or crayfish tail cocktail with toast, while mains include the homely likes of mince & tatties, macaroni cheese, & black pudding with mushrooms & pancakes. Avoid the more ambitious specials as these can overstretch the kitchen: a sampled dish of roast cod with saffron potatoes was a little dry & poorly presented. But the staff are great, the environment is good & the more straightforward dishes always hit the spot.
