    Excellent location - for me as I was coming from the bus station. From walking in to walking out, I could fault nothing. And very reasonably priced for the quality of the fish. Drinks very reasonable too. I ate at their sister restaurant, Ardnamurchan earlier in the year and that too was excellent

    Such a simple menu, but oh so good. Had the coley, which was cooked to perfection. Not sure we needed salad dressing on the lovely side of carrots, but that's just my personal preference. It was rally good. Market menu is excellent value! Staff were excellent too. There was a technical issue with the beer keg, so they kindly offered my a free glass of wine instead (for the inconvenience), which was great. Good for pre-theatre too, as just across from the Royal Theatre.

    An amazing dinner experience. This was the best we've had in Glasgow. The chef is a genius. Beautiful presentations and winning flavor combinations. Highly recommend the Orkney crab dish. When will Kelp open a location in the States?

    A lovely restaurant. We were shown to our table very quickly . Unfortunately, had to ask for menus. The choices were excellent! Very varied . Beautifully cooked and presentation was perfect. Having asked for a 2nd glass of wine , it took too long to be delivered. Think the staff were not too busy , but there was quite a delay. All in all a great experience apart from this issue.

    Kelp was excellent in every respect. It has a wide range of dishes-the mackerel with potato salad is a particular treasure. Every dish is carefully crafted and the service was polite and helpful. I will be back many times. Seafood heaven!!!
