Fantastic food on every visit, well cooked with good presentation. Great value for money, suits all budgets.

Modern surroundings and nicely decorated.

All staff helpful and friendly, some of the male staff can be too friendly to the point they are intrusive when you are in the middle of having a conversation with friends, whilst having a rapport is good, there is a line and in my opinion tone it back a little as it’s not always appropriate.

If you are looking for a fantastic meal and you are swithering about booking then go ahead you will not be disappointed..

It was our older daughter's birthday and we chose to go to Bistro19 at Harburn Golf Club as we had heard really good reports about it. As we were going on a Saturday evening I tried to book a table in advance for 4 of us. Unfortunately the restaurant was fully booked but if we wished we could dine in the lounge area and if any cancellations were received then we would be moved into the proper restaurant. This arrangement seemed perfectly acceptable so I made the booking.

On arriving on what was a glorious evening weather wise we found that a table had been set up for us in the lounge area. I think that we got the better seating option as the large round table could easily have seated 8 and it was much quieter in the lounge than the restaurant where there was a large party dining including some biosterous children.

The menu is pretty good and we all found very acceptable dishes to eat. The birthday girl started with Chorizo and black pudding salad, followed by Chicken Balmoral, my wife had vegetable pakora followed by steak stir fry and I had Haggis Bon Bon followed by haddock and proper hand cut chunky chips. True to form our younger daughter went without a starter and had a main course, Chicken Fajitas, and a dessert, Baked Alaska. All dishes were served on good quality crockery, no food served on planks of wood or in stupid wire baskets of chips. The drinks are all very reasonably priced as well. I had a pint of Belhaven Best for £3.10, pretty good. If there is a minor down side it is the sauces and vinegar being supplied in small plastic sachets. Surely an establishment of this quality should aim a bit higher in this respect.

I must also praise the excellent service that we got. While it might have seemed that we were being rushed, our waitress advised us to place our order for food as quickly as we could as once the large party in the restaurant placed its order the preparation and serving of other meals would probably be delayed. This proved to be a good move as there was no real delay in our meals being served.

All in all an excellent meal out, we will most certainly dine here again.

Not been to Harburn for 13 years, but we decided to go for dinner with friends and it was great. Just as well we booked a table because it was busy. The food was excellent, the staff were really helpful and obviously happy and the restaurant was lovely. We'll definitely be back.
