About

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.

Always wanted to visit this restaurant however it’s expensive for what you get. They add on 12.5% to the bill for service. Food is good, service is very good but atmosphere is a bit strange plus the usual noisy drunks at the bar area who can only shout when they are drunk and pretend they are snobs

This was our first time in the Rogano and we were most impressed. The service both in the bar and restaurant was first class and both my wife and myself enjoyed our meal immensely
I would recommend the Rogano to anyone looking for a special day out

A gem of a place, quite unique in its slightly decadent 1930s style. Reliable cuisine, friendly and attentive service. Reasonably priced food and a well-priced wine list that covers all needs from modest glass of wine to extravagant party champagne and impressively classy bottles. The fish selection is wide and all was perfectly cooked. Can't fault it

Very excited to be able to book The Rogano at short notice. Excellent welcome, jackets taken to cloakroom and shown to nice private corner table. Black pudding terrine with not enough sour dough crisps, looking forward to lobster! It wasn’t to be. Lobster dry & rubbery and dried up sauce on top. Offered free dessert which we didn’t really want but encouraged to have. On this basis - unfortunately - I would not return

Service, from the greeting to departure, was friendly and efficient. Dining room was quiet enough to talk but not too quiet that you could be overheard.
Gave only 4 stars for food as, though the cod in the main course was excellent, I found the accompanying mash a little cloggy for my palate. Instead of dessert, I chose coffee and petit fours. Delicious.

Great experience of this Glasgow icon which as visitors to the city was on our to do list and it was very good. Lost my checked in umbrella but fully compensated for a new one. Would recommend this establishment either for a casual drink or to enjoy eating there (we did).

I dined at Rogano's a number of times 50 years ago. Things change but the reputation still seemed good. This was to be a special dinner and while the food and service were OK, they were definitely not special. A pity.

My only real issue was over the coat of the wine. Cheapest price of abottle was around £33 - a bit too much for my wallet. There should surely be a bottle available around the £20 mark.

The seafood platters were very fresh, tasty and generous, the champagne and wine was delicious, the service was spot on, and it was good value considering the quality. The atmosphere was delightfully old school. Will definitely return for future special meals out or at least a bite and a drink at the bar.

Character decor and history of this art decor establishment is worth a visit
Service good
Food and kitchen not the standard that the prices demand
Because we are not residents of Glasgow We have been occasional customers for last thirty years and we consider that standards have slipped.

We recently ate in the main restaurant and as always the food,service and atmosphere were above expectations.
The Rogano is an institution in Glasgow city centre and long may it continue.

Very expensive for the quality of the food. My lobster was tough. The waiter was very good and offered to get a new plate. I declined this and our desserts were deducted from the bill. Very impressed with the service. The toilets are a real disgrace for a restaurant of that level. Worn and dated and my husband said the men’s smelt really badly. He doesn’t normally notice. We will not be back and will not be recommending it.

Fabulous experience, staff are fantastic. Food is first rate. Ambience is opulent. Toilets are tired and in dire need of refurbishment, the ladies were bad enough but the gents were really awful and became topic of conversation, really not in keeping with every other part of the evening. So to the powers that be...please make the toilets a priority as it is dragging a wonderful dining experience down and your poor staff don't deserve the earache!

Rogano is a great choice for fish-eaters who enjoy a bit of old school charm with their meal. It's a beautiful building evocative of the art deco period and the service is great, too. The menu is quite brief, especially for those of us who don't eat fish, but the food was tasty. Portions on the small side. A good choice for a special occasion meal or for visitors from out of town.

From the moment we arrived, the service was excellent. The members of staff who dealt with us were friendly, professional and helpful. As always, the food was to a high standard, and the lunch menu was good value for money.
