Black pudding starter lovely. Scotch broth soup nice, bread not nice and had to ask for butter.
Haggis burger overpowered by relish, could not taste anything else.
Steak&sausage pie, 1 bit off sausage and 2 bits steak, plenty gravy. Seasonal veg, frozen peas!
Second visit and still no White Zinfandel wine in stock.
Drinks very expensive. Food reasonably priced.
Found the place rather cold.

Went for lunch to catch up with friends. Set lunch menu offered a wide variety of dishes - haggis croquettes were particularly delicious. Main courses were also well portioned and delicious and £7.50 cocktails were the icing on the cake ! Staff were welcoming and very accommodating - Felt very safe as COVID protocols were in place - will definitely return soon

Delicious dinner with far too more-ish cocktails - we had the steak and scallop platter which was amazing, still dreaming about it now!

Really lovely place to relax and have a nice meal, staff were super friendly and nice. Menu had great choice of traditional Scottish fare.
My only minor complaint was that the way the main course was presented wasn’t great. It tasted great but looked like something served at a kids party especially the burgers.

My first visit to Mharsanta was as an invited Concierge working at one of Glasgow’s more prestigious Hotels, and I must say it left a major impression on me for all the right reasons. The standard hasn’t fallen in the slightest intact I’d say if anything it’s got even better. The entire meal was amazing, the service first class and the ambience was perfect. Anyone stuck for a starter I strongly recommend the goats cheese croquettes. I love my goats cheese and nowhere comes close.

Warm and welcoming staff and a nice buzz about the restaurant . Food was Scottish fare with a twist , good portion sizes and tasty. visited many times pre cv19 and pleased to see that Mharsanta has survived , walking through Glasgow last night it was sad to see so many restaurants and sandwich shops closed permanently.

This was our first visit to Mharsanta and we weren’t disappointed. It was a horrible wet day but the restaurant was warm and cosy. There were several things on the menu that appealed to me but I chose the steak and sausage pie which was delicious. My friends had the club sandwich and the haggis burger and they thoroughly enjoyed them. We had white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding for dessert and they were delicious too. Two courses for £12.95 at lunchtime seems a bargain when the food is this good. We’ll definitely be back.

Visited on 25th September 21. Really looking forward to it. The restaurant is lovely. I orderd the Macaroni Cheese unfortunately it was extremely dry, nice tasting but absolute no sauce, made it difficult to enjoy, possibly a reheat. Which was very dissapointing. The other order was a steak pie which was lovely. It would not stop me going back but just thought it was worth mentioning. I did say to one of the staff but Im not sure they took it on board.

My friend and I enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea in your lovely restaurant. The sandwiches and scones and cakes were all very tasty and we appreciated the unlimited tea and coffee which you don't always get. The staff were charming and very attentive. We'll be back and I'll recommend you to family and friends.

It was very quiet on a Sunday evening, but the whole Merchant City was equally quiet. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was simple good quality Scottish fare at a reasonable price. Background music was unobtrusive and atmospheric. I would go again.

Excellent restaurant- one of my go-to restaurants in Glasgow. Excellent Scottish cuisine and good range of whiskies. Tables nicely set out to give privacy and ambience at the same time.
