My last visit here was around 6 months to a year, and it was my first visit.

To be honest with you my first visit was not that great, I was with my friend and we ordered a few dishes to try them and they all came at once (which is OK as am used to this) but I did try and sample from all as soon as they arrived and some dishes were just warn and no more, meaning by the time i finish my first dish the other 2 would be cold and not enjoyable.

The service this visit was good, it was just that the dishes could have been a lot warmer on arrival.

Today’s visit…

I decided I would only have the one dish as it was lunch time, and not be too much of a pig plus it meant I wouldn’t have a repeat of my first visit.

The Food :

Latin Burger £12.95
Toppled with jalapenos, blistered peppers & fresh avocado. (comes with thin or thick chips, or sweet potatoes)

On arrival this looked very nice, and I couldn’t wait to dig in.

This was a very nice burger, the flavours all worked very well and the meat was very tasty on its own. My only issue was the bun started to fall apart, as the juices were making it soft but I didn’t mind this as could use a knife and fork if it got too bad.

The meat was very tender and perfectly cooked, I opted for medium.

I was actually expecting some sweet potato fries, but then it was presented this way.

Visually this looked very nice, and to taste well you cant really go wrong with sweet potatoes these were cooked right and seasoned with salt really nice.

Rating :

Quilmes Lager £3.95
Argentina, 4.9% 340ml

I like light beers, as they are easy to drink and you don’t feel too full after a few.

I asked the waitress to recomend one and she recomended this.

This was an OK beer, I wouldn’t say it was my favourite but it was as described a nice light beer….would I get it again on my return? yes I would.

Overall :

Overall my second visit was 100% better than my first, and I would go back again to try more dishes.

I cant fault today’s visit, the service was really good and the food very nice and tasty.

I have been told to try the steak on my next visit, but the problem is I am not a steak fan so this will be interesting.

Miller & Carter Steakhouse Glasgow : Review

Visit : 28 May 2016

Miller & Carter recently opened up a new restaurant in Glasgow, and since its been opened I have heard good things about it. Miller & Carter specialise on steaks, which for me I am not keen on but I did notice they did burgers which I like.

I tried to get in about 2 weeks ago but there was about a 3 hour wait and I didn’t feel like waiting. I did the smart thing and book online, so I knew I could get in and try it.

The restaurant has been done up very nice, its very smart and modern inside and very spacious.

On entering the staff were very welcoming and I was shown to my seat. The waiter introduced himself and explained the menu etc.

Starters :

For my started I ordered Dusted Calamari.

I have to say this was very nice, and probably the best Calamai I have had so far in any Glasgow restaurant. The portion size was perfect and yes I would order this again or recommend it.

Mains :

For my main I ordered the bacon and cheese steak burger with sweet potato fries.

Overall I was a little disappointed with this, as I felt the burger didn’t really have much flavour to it as the bacon flavour on it came over more. Don’t get me wrong It was nice and yes I am in a restaurant that focuses more on steak, but It just lacked something for me. My friend he ordered the T-Bone steak and it did look really nice, and I tried a small bit and coming from someone who doesn’t eat steak I really liked this and would give it a try.

Dessert :

For my last course I ordered the Crème brûlée.

I have always loved Crème brûlée and this was very nice, as you can see by the photo it comes with 2 strawberries on top to be honest this wasn’t needed as its nice just on its own and the crust could have been harder but that’s me being fussy.

My final part of the meal was an After Eight cocktail which was amazing, thats all I will say and yes I would have more of these anytime.

Overall :

Overall my experience was very good, the only letdown for me was the burger but it is a steakhouse and focuses on steaks. As I said i did try the T-bone steak and i was surprised how good it was, as any time I have tried steak I have hated it and this T-bone was very very very nice.

Would I go back?…..probably! and I would be willing to try the T-Bone next time but since it’s costly might wait a while till my pennies build up again.
