The Glass Goose Information

Modeled off the idea of a Glass House, this contemporary yet casual eating and drinking space is a true garden like oasis.

The view from the rooftop bar area gives you a second to non, up-skirt look at the Sky Tower and the grazing menu will have you hash tagging 'foodporn' like never before.

The fit out in Glass Goose is cool in this new restaurant to join the busy popular Fed Street. I love how the bar goes from standing at one end to sitting at the lower rare end. The music and acoustics are not conducive to having conversation and you have a rather hoarse throat when you leave from all the shouting to be heard but it’s what you expect at another one of Monteiths pubs.

The menu offers a mix of sharing plates, a couple of platters and big, satisfying dinners. As we were a table of 13 I decided on putting together our own set menu starting with some cod croquette’s which only tasted of the potato that over whelmed them. Pretty quickly (too quickly) our table was filled with food in no particular order and a shame the vegetables came when most of the meat dishes were devoured.

The Haloumi was the worst dish of the night with a stingy piece of overcooked halloumi served on a strange salad. The sides of duck fat potato skins and Eggplant chips always go down a treat. The braised Pork cheeks and lamb were my favourite dishes. The fish was a strange dish to share and the fish a little overcooked. The beef chewy and the sprouts didn’t hit the mark.

There was quite a bit of leftovers which one friend took for her dogs, maybe I got carried away with my ordering, it was hard to know when we had one no show in the group. We were too full for dessert so I can‘t say how they were received.

The magnificent view of the sky tower through the glass roof really is awe inspiring and theatrical like any minute now it will topple onto you. Give this place a whirl if you're in a smaller group and don't mind the noise.
