A word from Rogano
Rogano has been established in Glasgow as a seafood restaurant for over 70 years. The main restaurant serves a wide variety of locally caught fish and shellfish, delicately prepared by our dedicated team of chefs. Lobster thermidor and oysters rockefeller are a speciality.
Cafe Rogano offers less formal dining with a bistro style menu and a fantastic pre-theatre selection. The oyster bar is where people come to see and be seen. A chilled glass of champagne is always on hand, perfect to wash down the oysters.

Diner Reviews
  • "I love eating at this restaurant! Whether it's for something quick in the oyster bar or for a full 3 course dinner in the restaurant I've never been disappointed. The food is outstanding and is matched by the great service. It feels like a special occasion each time I go but doesn't feel pretentious and is able to create a comfortable ambiance. I get married this week and as soon as the wedding is out the way this will be the first place we come to to treat ourselves.5 stars all the way."

  • "Eaten here lots of times and obviously we must like it. Service was a bit slow this time, not quite so efficient as usual. The evening was nothing special, I had sole meniere, was very good."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "My wife and I had dinner. The food was excellent, well cooked and beautifully presented. The waitress and waiter were perfect. They did not rush us, but everything was cleared smoothly and efficiently. The last pleasure was the bill. It was less than I had expected when booking, and a bargain for the evening's experience. We shall return!"
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "Delicious food on the whole, although my roast salmon was certainly overcooked but everyone of the party of 5 enjoyed theirs. One major issue though is that we were there for a business lunch and the service was really really slow We waited for 15 minutes to pay our bill. We waited 15 minutes to make our orders and waited 15 minutes to get our first course. 45 minutes of doing not a lot which made the lunch last 90 minutes for 2 courses and a glass of wine. Food was good though and the ambience was great. It was pretty busy for monday lunchtime too"

  • "Myself and husband visited Glasgow to go to a concert in the Hydro (great venue) and decided to have a Saturday night at Rogano. We certainly didnt regret our decision. Cullen skink was absolutely fantastic and john dory lovely - with a far bigger portion than i wold have expected.My husband had veal 3 ways and it was really good too - tea and petite fours was all i could manage after a sumptuous meal, but i have it on good authority that the pudding was great. One negative note and it is already mentioned here is the toilets. WOW they are really bad. Im sure the restaurant must make enough profit to go in there and sort it out. Not only old and dirty looking but smelly too with overflowing bins."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Visited the Rogano on Sat & as always the food & service were excellent, no complaints here. Always a nice touch to get your free appetisers before your starters arrive! The only minor thing i would say is that i think it was darker than normal in the main restaurant, in fact i saw one lady using the light from her phone to read the menu at one stage. But as always, we both loved it and will be back."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Good, service and ambience was amazing! My first time there and I will be back very soon as we have booked a table for my dads birthday dinner."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "I have had memorable meals at the Rogano over the years. It is not what it used to be and is not up to the standard of newer eating establishments and seems to be still trading on its past. Food basic and staff aloof and unfriendly."
    dined on 01/04/2014
  • "I took my mother here for Mother's Day for the Mother's Day deal Rogano were offering. To keep it brief the food was unbelievable, the waiter who was serving us was great and the surroundings were extremely pleasant. Would 100% go back."
    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "We took visiting friends from the US out for dinner on a cold damp Tuesday night so wanted somewhere a little special and that would still have some atmosphere mid-week. Rogano was just the ticket. I love the look of the place anyway, but the food was also great (I went for the classics, Cullen Skink and Lemon Sole), the wine was great and quite reasonably priced and we were made to feel very welcome. There were a couple of delays in service later on but those were clearly mistakes and not representative of the approach."
    dined on 25/03/2014
  • "Went for dinner with my female friend. Food was as always excellent and service good. We did not initially get offered the wine list just given some suggestions. Think they thought us too girlie to need the list. I do enquire and staff don't get all the service charge which I hate. But we had a good night."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "We seem to be going through a phase of bad meals. Rogano is one of our Glasgow faves, but not this time. We had very nice livers as a starter. My wife's main of rabbit with prunes was very chewy and bland, not like Belgian style, she didn't finish it. My Sole had to be sent back as it was way overcooked. The 2nd was loaded with masses of salt and still overcooked (and tiny). Did not have desserts, but the petit fours and coffee were good. Rogano did not charge us for the mains, so appreciated that. On the plus side they did offer an alternative amuse bouche to one with scallops. Overall, disappointed, usually so good. Better next time."
    dined on 20/03/2014
  • "We have had lunch here twice in the last 8 days prior to a matinee at the King's theatre. As on previous occasions we enjoyed the experience and found the fixed price menu perfectly satisfactory without recourse to the a la carte. Our only caveat is that service was a little slow. I wish that restaurants would ask their customers whether they are in for a leisurely meal or have some engagement later requiring a specific departure time. We did enjoy ourselves and we will go again and recommend it to others; just wish all restaurants would take up my suggestion."
    dined on 19/03/2014
  • "I had always wanted to visit Rogano and I wasnt disappointed on my visit for lunch. The waiters are a bit remote and lacking in oomph - if someone is waiting for a guest why not offer some bread and a drink.... Lunch special of gravadlax - rather small helping and bream was good. coffee and petit fours good too - will be back to sample the real menu though"
    dined on 13/03/2014
  • "The service was very brusque, there was no friendly effort - no 'good evening' or usual civility, just a 'what do you want?', from behind my chair very loudly actually made me jump! My husband v expensive steak was very salty to the point of indelible and the hollandaise sauce had split. On the bill at the end was a hefty 12.5% added gratuity. No we didn't complain as we were out for a rare night out, kid free, and did not want to ruin the night, will definitely not be rushing back or recommending others do. My husband said the gents toilets were also some of the worst he had been in!"
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "Regano's In Glasgow is a first class restaurant not to be missed when visiting the area ideal for fine dining and for special occasssions. The food and service top marks in every way. When the commanwealth games are on make sure you book your table. You will be made most welcome by one and all."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "I was looking for a place to take my girlfriend while in Glasgow and was able to make a booking the same day. Service was truly exceptional in every way and the food was delightful. All of the fish dishes were fresh and well prepared; the lemon sole is to die for. The wine list is extensive and represents a good range of price points for those who aren't experts or looking to spend a small fortune. The decor is certainly reminiscent of times gone by, but elegant nonetheless. Would definitely recommend."
    dined on 05/03/2014
  • "having always known about the restaurant finally went to eat here! it was every bit lie stepping back in time, classic décor. pre dinner cocktails lovely, waiter was great set us up nicely for the food. food was great good selection of seafood dishes. very tasty presentation could be modernised but all tasted great. liked the scallop bisque amuse bouche, bouillabaisse was worth having, the missus scallops were good too. defiantly worth going to."
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "Food always reliable . Ambience great, even if tables can be a little too close . When busy still possible to converse easily , and NO PIPED MUSIC 10th visit , at least, and I live in Edinburgh. No items in 2 above really to tick ( so look at the choices here ) as I am retired but since meeting a former colleague was a bit like a business meal"
    dined on 03/03/2014
  • "Rogano's was busy and bustling on Saturday night with a great atmosphere. Table was available at the designated time and the service was very good. Food choice was good and the quality of food was excellent. Good wine choice also."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "High quality food from amuse bouche to coffee and petit fours. Although Rogano is known for seafood the venison was a highlight as was the beehive baked Alaska. Service attentive and knowledgable but not intrusive. Overall the high point of this visit to Glasgow."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "We eat out a lot at restaurants all over town, Rogano is the best, no doubt about it."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "I was with my partner who had visited several times before although a few years ago, this would be my first. He had been recommended not to go back now. We had a comment made to us by a restaurant manager in the hotel we were staying the night before that Roganos had had it's day. Well! Absolute perfection!....from the welcome, the attentive service throughout, the speed, the quality, the fruit de mer was to die for as was the lobster Thermidor. Portions were super-sized and did not need a starter although the scallops and smoked salmon were sublime. You cannot visit Glasgow without a meal at Roganos. This topped a dream day after visiting Jack Vettriano's Retro at the Kelvingrove and Rennie MacKintosh at Uni of Glasgow. Amazing."
    dined on 20/02/2014
  • "Great place if you love food although loads of lovely fish on the menu. I had the venison and it was amazing. All the food was exquisite, The Service Was Brilliant One To Recommend"
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "We had high hopes for lunch on Sunday, as had been quite a few times over the years and enjoyed delicious food. The service from start to finish was lacking, with basic etiquette ovelooked. To our surprise a service change of 12.5% was added to our bill, which was excessive given we were a party of 3! We dined on the a la carte menu and were severely disappointed, all dishes were overpriced, and the quality of the food was poor. The restaurant has definitely gone downhill, and we will not be returning. Take your money elsewhere."
    dined on 16/02/2014
  • "Lovely meal on Valentine's night. Restaurant very busy, obviously, and quite noisy, but a good lively atmosphere. Service very quick and efficient. They have a separate vegetarian menu (which we didn't need) but this is unusual, as normally menus only mark suitable dishes with a "V". Good wine list with several moderately priced wines. Received both a phone call and email reminding me of our booking beforehand."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Always a good bustling atmosphere and a good experience. Service was generally good and friendly despite the restaurant being full, although the bar seemed to be performing a bit below par. Kitchen also forgot to send up the side dish for my wife at the same time as the mains but was quick to remedy this. One point which we have also previously noted: a close eye needs to be kept on the toilets as in both Ladies and Gents the paper towel waste bin was overflowing and the general cleanliness of the toilets could have been better especially as it was still early evening."
    dined on 13/02/2014
  • "Had booked the main restaurant, but they had a function on, so we were moved downstairs to the Cafe'. Food still as good, and our Lithuanian waitress was charming and efficient."
    dined on 13/02/2014
  • "I booked lunch as a birthday treat for my partner. The service was excellent and the timing of the courses was spot on. We took the special of 'John Dory' and we were a bit disappointed. The fish was over cooked and a bit dry. I am not a big eater but managed to eat all of it as the portion was relatively small. It was all right but we won't rush back. Piccolo Mondo on Argyle St is much better value"
    dined on 03/02/2014
  • "I booked this for a special occasion for my parents. They said it was a lovely place and the food was fantastic! Very happy that they had a good time and that it was the right choice of place."
    dined on 28/01/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. Get the Michelin star stationary ordered"
    dined on 26/01/2014
  • "I love rogano - I've never had a bad meal or experience there. The food is amazing. The price is decent. The ambience is relaxed, cool, trendy and welcoming all in one. They know what they are doing is right and they keep doing it."
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "Excellent service, didn't keep coming up and interrupting conversation by asking if everything was alright, hate that in restaurants! Food excellent. Have been before and will return."
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "Table was ready with pre-ordered drinks. Waiters were attentive and polite and experienced. Both ordered the John Dory fish. Mushrooms were very rubbery and could not be cut with the fish knife - left. The mashed potatoes were weirdly covered with something which made them quite dry and tasteless. However when mentioned to the waiter he apologised. Restaurant offered us a complimentary sweet but we only asked for coffee. Restaurant came over with a surprise dish of small sweets on a plate with Happy Birthday written on it. That was a very nice touch."
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "Long time since we have visited this restaurant of which we have very fond memories so was a bit nervous that it would not live up to our expectations. We needn't have worried it was amazing as ever!"
    dined on 24/01/2014
  • "Enjoyed Roganos as always, food and service outstanding."
    dined on 21/01/2014
  • "I chose to eat at Rogano after reading great reviews and it met every expectation. Great service and attention to the customer, food was delicious and priced to suit. Will eat there again."
    dined on 19/01/2014
  • "Excellent meal and lovely restaurant- fab outside smoking area"
    dined on 19/01/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I received a gift-voucher for Rogano's from friends and decided to save it for a special occasion - our final night in Glasgow before moving abroad. The meal was fantastic - excellent, exciting food! The ambiance was a bit dated but most of the service was excellent, though our main server had a very strange, abrupt manner. We thought at first he was being rude and dismissive, but we saw that his manner with the same with all the guests in the restaurant. The rest of the servers exuded model behavior, but the service definitely loses some stars because our main server couldn't even be bothered to give us a wine recommendation (simply rattled off the house wines and disappeared before we could get a question in)."
    dined on 13/01/2014
  • "Service really good. Food lacked a bit of special quality although good enough. Sancerre at £39 did not set the taste buds singing. Fish soup very under seasoned."
