No, not MY sisters. THE sisters!
It’s the restaurant we visited for my mum’s birthday on Saturday night.
Jacqueline and Pauline O’Donnell are the sisters behind these two Glasgow restaurants, and we visited their Glasgow Kelvingrove restaurant.
The venue is quite small, but very comfortable, and it was very busy when we arrived. The menu was amazing: all freshly prepared, locally sourced ingredients, and it was cooked so well. I’d love to make a return visit!
To start, I had brioche topped with mushrooms and a port and red onion chutney. The portion was very generous. I then had the fish of the day, which was a fillet of sea bass in a lobster cream sauce, with some chive mash and queenie scallops. Wow. It was amazing.
While everyone else tucked into dessert, I had a coffee, as I couldn’t fit one in!
The service from our waitress, Kirsty, was fantastic.
I also found out that Jacqueline, who is head chef, will be one of the chefs representing Scotland on the 2014 Great British Menu, which is great! It’s the first time that a chef from Glasgow will be competing, and the first Scottish woman to compete. She will be following in the footsteps of other Scottish competitors, like Tom Kitchin, Alan Murchison and Tony Singh.
I’m looking forward to seeing how she does!

Did you eat well this weekend?

Sounds devine!! And unfortunately I always make room for dessert even when it isn’t there 🙂
Usually, so do I! My coffee did come with a lovely piece of home made shortbread 😉
Oh I ate well. I ate my own tasty cupcakes and triffle. So, is that the kind of well you meant? 😉 I don’t think so. I enjoyed my weekend though and your meal sounded great.
Yum yum yum! Your trifle looked great! Glad you had a fab weekend.
Hmmm that looks very yummy. I’m not in Glasgow all that often, but I’ll definitely keep this in mind for good food. How do you manage to resist desert though?
I have no idea; it’s VERY unlike me! 😮
Looks like a great birthday for ma!
She’s had a week of celebrating, that’s turning into a year of partying! Turning 6-0 might just be worthwhile!
