Review on Rogano
Proclaiming itself as 'the oldest surviving restaurant in Glasgow', Rogano was fitted out some 75 years ago at a time when the great Cunard liner 'The Queen Mary' was being built on Clydeside. Its elegant Art Deco interior is legendary.
Pride of place goes to the grand, sumptuously decorated restaurant, which is dedicated to the pleasures of old-school seafood cookery. This is the place to visit if you hanker after moules marinière, lobster Thermidor, or lemon sole meunière. Occasionally the modern world intrudes, as in sauté scallops with chorizo and pimento fritters or seared salmon with summer truffle tapenade, while fillet of Aberdeen Angus beef with deep-fried haggis ravioli and Laphroaig whisky jus should find favour with patriotic carnivores. Then, it's back to the past for Black Forest baked Alaska or chocolate pot with walnut shortbread.
Downstairs is Café Rogano, a much more informal venue dealing in brasserie dishes such as steamed mussels with coconut cream or braised lamb shank with swede and orange mash. Rogano's Oyster Bar is also a long-serving Glasgow favourite, renowned for its cocktails, fish soup and –of course – oysters every which way.
