    After previously phoning before we booked to see if they could accommodate Coeliac to which we were told it would not be a problem they could modify most items on the menu to suit…they could not modify anything all that was on offer was a sirloin steak and side salad…which was tough as old boots! A very disappointing experience to say the least.

    Faultless from start to finish really, a warm welcome from friendly staff. Quality of food is exceptional, we had goats cheese croquettes and black pudding fritter to start, followed by the steak and haggis lasagne for mains. Absolutely outstanding quality and very reasonably priced too. Good selection of Scottish music playing also! Staff are attentive and helpful, can't really find fault with any of it.

    Another great meal at Mharsanta with excellent service despite the restaurant bein really busy with initially a party of American tourists leaving and a party f French tourists arriving. The noise level was moderate despite number of diners. Our meal was delicious and there was not any long delays between arriving, giving our order and the delivery of the freshly cooked food. Mharsanta is our restaurant of choice when visiting Glasgow and we have never had any reason to complain. It would be good though if the entry door to restaurant could be repaired in order that it closed properly when diners arrive or leave. My husband had to rise several times to close door as there was a drought coming in when left open.

    Wednesday night steak special: we went early so the place was not busy. Steaks were quite chewy but with good flavor, so the special was okay but not ...special. Three servers managed not to see us, not to check back, and forgot to update the order. The bill was wrong and had to be adjusted. Not good value for money, not very "special."

    Not much atmosphere. Food tasty however ordered black pudding fritter for starter and the yolk in the poached egg on top was hard - disappointing! Ladies toilets were smelly and lots of cobwebs on ceiling and floor in gents toilets was greasy and slippy.

    Did not have any Haggis Lasagna available but waitress did not inform us before we ordered so had to change order. I was really looking forward to it as I had checked the menu before hand. The mussel main course was disappointing lacked flavour. Cocktails were good though. And the wall decor was nice. Staff were polite but lacked engagement.

    Had some very nice mussels here and my partner had the beef meat with some pastry on top. We had some haggis and black pudding as starters and for dessert the browny. Everything was fresh and tasty and the service was very good as well. Very nice location. They also organise tours but we only found out when there and we had our days a bit booked already. But I do recommend this place for some very nice Scottish food.

    My husband and friend overall enjoyed their food. My fish was not crispy on the outside so a wee bit disappointed as i usually order it. My husband gad the haggis and said the only thing that stopped it being amazing was the tomato was it did not blend well with the haggis. It won't stop us coming back but minor issues need resolved. Wee did leave a good tip so weren't that disappointed.

    Service was patchy, when we arrived and we’re pointed to our table I had to move a stack of chairs out of the way so I could sit down. No one appeared to take a drink order so husband had to go to the bar. One of the waitresses was a little more attentive, the other looked very annoyed all the time. My drink arrived 5 minutes after everyone else’s. Table wasn’t cleared of any glasses so we had a collection by the end of the night. The white wine was warm, had to ask for ice. My starter (croquettes) was nice, the veggie haggis main tasted ok although didn’t look particularly appetising. Husband wasn’t overly impressed with his , said it all appeared to have come out a freezer. Can’t comment on dessert as apparently kitchen was closed at 9.15 so we weren’t allowed one.
