Speaking of the Michelin Takeover, Eduardo Fernandez Blanco, operations manager of Rioja and the Rotunda Restaurant Group said:

"Pushing boundaries in flavour is what our chefs set out to do every day. They're inspired by their surroundings and their Spanish heritage. In Rioja and in Spain, food is a way of life. It's in our blood. We always try to reflect our culture and passion in our dishes and we've worked hard to create an exclusive menu for Glasgow to enjoy.

With the return of Modesto to the Rioja kitchen we are once again looking forward to transporting our guests to the beautiful corners of Scotland and Spain through extraordinary flavours and exciting dishes.
