Fantastic meal at Roastit Bubbly Jocks on Saturday night.....there wasnt one thing on the menu I didn't want to try but settled on the goat cheese starter followed by the venison.....both were absolutely delicious.

The staff were excellent....good fun and attentive but not in your face.

Brilliant night. Will certainly be back and have been recommending to everyone.

100% lovely. We arrived quite early but were still welcomed. Every part of our meal from service to food to wine quality was excellent and a really reasonable price too. Fully recommended from a family who dine out in Glasgow on a very regular basis.

Small comfortable restaurant in Partick, West end of Glasgow. Very warm welcome and comfortable seating. Menu mostly Scottish and fresh local produce, well made and well presented, and absolutely delicious. Good wine list available. Highly recommended.

It was very busy and the food was good a wee bit of a wait due to it being busy ( could do with more chefs at it seems to busy all the time) tables a wee bit to close to each other.
Visited again on Monday to try the breakfast as the menu looked good but when we got there it was closed for refurbishment
We will visit again when visiting Glasgow.

Really disappointing, e.g. filo-feta parcels didn't seem to have any feta inside, just squash; pavlova meringue was very dry and served with little sauce - both were so much better when we ate there just a few weeks ago. Don't think I will be going back.

It has taken us a couple of years to make it back to this place, but so glad we made it.

Our memories were of great food with excellent service, if anything it was even better.

Staff are happy to recommend dishes, wine or just to pass the time of day. Food was excellent, with a great menu choice and specials.

It won't be 2 years before we are back.

The food wasn’t as great as every other time we’ve been but I will still go back. Probably just caught the chef on an off night. I would probably order off the a la carte menu next time, the steak on the market menu was a bit cheap/small. Probably as good as could be expected for £10 though.

Wonderful food and wonderful ambience. You could tell all the food was made fresh from scratch and with love. The Venison was so fresh and the raspberry brûlée with the dessert wine was delish . Enjoy. Would thoroughly recommend. xxx

Compared with some of the competition the ambience, decor and therefore the atmosphere were a little lacking, however both the food and the service were excellent.

The food here is wonderful, very tasty and good portion size. It has a small menu two courses for £15 plus an a la carte menu that is more expensive, but all the dishes are delicious. Service is excellent. Highly recommended. Booking sensible as it is usually busy.

What a disappointment!
We chose the 'specials of the day', thinking it would be special! It was, especially poor.
The mussels were swimming in a sea of cream & half of them were shrivelled.
The guinea fowl was tasteless, served on a thick bed of lentils, also swimming in a flavourless brown sauce. About three onions accompanied the dish.
We did not try the dessert.
On leaving the premises my coat, scarf and other clothing were impregnated with a fatty odour still there the next day.
The service was pleasant. As a gesture, the starter was discounted from the bill.
We were not there for a cheap meal but a good meal.
Roastit Bubby Jocks failed!

This was our first visit and hopefully not our last. The food is excellent. I had the venison and my partner had haggis. Both were excellent.

The venue is fairly small so it is quite noisy. Good if you like atmosphere but not so good if you like it quiet.

It was a busy Saturday night and we were the second sitting but the staff coped marvellously. The food was good but don’t go if you want an exciting different gastronomic experience. Value was very good.

Have been coming to RBJ for a number of years for special occasions and moved much closer recently. We now visit every couple of months. Food is always superb and the service even better. Cannot recommend highly enough.
