Barbarossa, Clarkston Road, Cathcart, Glasgow – Aug 2011

 

 

Ventured to Barbarossa which is next door to Cathcart Railway Station.  Always one we had meant to try and due to a Groupon deal we were able to cheaply.

 

 

 

 

 

Scallops with sun dried tomatoes and bacon.  Lovely salty and crispy bacon combined nicely with the fleshy scallops.

 

 

 

 

Black truffle ravioli – soft, tasty – could’ve been warmer but otherwise very happy.

 

 

Venison with fondant potatoes, veggies and a thyme and juniper jus – rich gravy, smooth venison and gorgeous potato.

 

seabass with mash and veggies.  Crispy yet fluffy seabass.  Full of flavour.  Buttery mash without a lump.

 

 

 cheesecake of the day – strawberry with candied lemon. fresh and creamy tasting. Biscuit bases was crunchy and buttery.

Cheeseboard. The honey pot was a good idea – went well with the blue cheese. My gripe always with cheese boards – tell people what the cheeses are!

A glass of port to accompany the cheeseboard and a dessert chianti with the cheesecake. A glass of prosecco included in the deal with an extra one purchased made the bill come to £22.30 to pay above the £27 for the groupon deal.

Very cosy inside with a casual atmosphere. Staff are excellent, friendly and don’t get in your way. Will be back again.

    Glad you liked it, possibly one of the best places ive ever dined in. Outstanding service and rather good Long Island Ice Teas with diet Coke.
