I'd been aching to try The Gannet for ages. After hearing so many good things about the restaurant in the vibrant, dining destination of Finnieston I was definitely curious to see what the 'award-winning, tipped for big things' spot had to offer!
I was further intrigued after reading the CitizenMag review! They just made it sound so amazing and after visiting I can confirm that you should definitely believe hype!
We opted for the 'Champagne Sundays' deal, with is quite a bargain I think! Three course for £30 and a glass of something bubbly on arrival - this is how one should spend a Sunday afternoon!
I went for the 'Rabbit anolotti, seared loin, kombucha, pickled baby carrot & radish salad, carrot puree' while the BF went for the 'Stornoway Black Pudding Scotch Duck Egg'.
Mains were 'Borders lamb, confit belly, courgette wrapped shoulder, braised fennel & puree, potato puree, cumin sauce'.
Arriving opposite was the 'Scotch Beef diamond fillet & ox tail, wild mushrooms, pickled onion, watercress puree, bone marrow & beef dripping confit Mayan gold potatoes, short rib sauce'.
We had to have pudding of course - how could we not after knowing how amazing the food was! I had the 'Salted caramel fondant, tonka bean ice cream' but also managed a taste of the 'Soft & Crips meringue, highland crowdie ice cream, Perthshire strawberries, strawberry & fermented tea foam."
Both amazing. Just look at that caramel. It demands attention as it spills out with the touch of a spoon. Please get me more now.
Everything was just impeccable. We were given the perfect wine recommendations and the bartender spoke passionately when I asked him about a sweet wine for my dessert, it's so lovely to speak to people who genuinely care and really know what they're talking about. It was also really lovely and relaxed with a laid-back atmosphere, the perfect way to while away an afternoon.
A massive thank you to CitizenMag for inviting me to review and a huge thanks to The Gannet for making the whole foodie experience so amazing - I'll be back!
