Brutti Compadres, Platos Pequenos
(ugly mates, small plates)

Nestled in a small, secretive courtyard in the historical area of Glasgow’s Merchant City, Brutti Compadres is built on the site of the original tobacco exchange.

Our cafe bar serves all day food, continental draught lagers, decent wines and fine italian coffee. We aim to provide our customers  with tasty small plates of mediteranean holiday style flavours. The menu changes seasonally and we also offer daily specials from our open plan kitchen. All this served to you by naturally friendly, helpful staff in our soft industrial, mediteranean style  cafe bar.

Eat at our long dining bar, choose your favourite table or enjoy the outside terrace, weather permitting. Bookings for large groups and special occasions can be accommodated.

To book your table today please telephone our friendly Front of House team at 0141 552 1777 or e-mail us at: brutticompadres@hotmail.com. Please note that a deposit of £5 per person will be requested for bookings of 8 people or over.
