Find this excellent 'budget' restaurant, in the basement under The Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery (q.v.), and in the shadow of the M8 flyover.
Chef David Monaghan oversees both operations - albeit from separate kitchens - and his standards are high.
Expect brasserie-style dishes, with the emphasis on seafood - but confirmed carnivores (and vegetarians) have plenty of choice.
Starters such as 'Crab, Chili & Apple Tian, with Fennel & Lime Salad'; 'Mussels with Lemon Grass, Chili & Garlic Cream' and 'Spiced Pepper Frittata, Cucumber & Mint Yoghurt' set the style.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Shandon Belles Fish Stew'; 'Wild Mushroom & Asparagus Risotto Cake with Truffle Oil'; 'Roast Pollack, Petits Pois à la Francais' and 'Ribeye Steak, Mixed Peppercorn Butter with Red Onion Salsa'.
Popular brasserie-style desserts might include 'Sticky Toffee Pudding with Crème Anglaise' and 'Hazelnut & Orange Chocolate Pot'.
Prices are modest for the quality on offer, but at certain times of day, also the set lunch and pre-theatre menu's of The Buttery above.
Service is both friendly and professional.
