Hi Kathy,

We really appreciate you taking the time to provide us with feedback of your visit to Ox and Finch. As you suggest, it is probably best to book in advance, especially at weekends, to save disappointment (although we do have tables available for ‘walk ins’ on a first come basis). We look forward to welcoming you again very soon.

Many thanks for both your visit and review,

The Team at Ox and Finch.

This restaurant is well situated near the Art Galleries in Glasgow and we visited after going to the Rennie Mackintosh exhibition. You usually have to book in advance and it is well worth waiting for. Food is freshly cooked and brought to the table as it is cooked, tapas style. Staff very courteous and well informed and not interrupting continually to ask if everything is ok (one of my pet hates!). Restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and comfortable table arrangements. Highly recommend a visit, a great asset to the Glasgow restaurant scene

Great food and a wonderful atmosphere. If you like tapas style food this is for you, the Thai fish cakes are fantastic.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a Glaswegian I met on the Fort William/Mallaig "Hogwarts" train. The service was terrific and we had a lovely meal. The tapas style allowed us to try and share several dishes. Portion sizes are quite generous so we found that four courses plus bread and dessert suited us well. The food was far superior to an overrated, overhyped place on the Isle of Skye, with far more reasonable prices.
