Papamacs Gourmet Kitchen is a family-run restaurant, which is located on Houston Square in the center of Johnstone. The Papamacs interior gives it an authentic neighborhood feel. The brick walls and scrubbed wooden tables give the restaurant a fashionable touch.
The dishes at Papamacs Gourmet Kitchen use fresh, locally sourced ingredients, cooked using classic French techniques with a Scottish influence. Papamacs hold steak nights on the last Thursday of each month… so there is something to suit everyone here. The chef Scott Keenan who is also the owner, has a fantastic reputation and a glowing CV that features many of Scotland’s most notable restaurants. While the dishes are carefully crafted and beautifully presented, they are also affordable.
The brunch menu is packed with breakfast options, several gourmet sandwich variations, pastas and popular lunch main courses such as bangers and mash or chilli beef nachos. The kitchen kicks up a gear with the evening menu. This might feature high end Scottish produce such as Tarbet-landed scallops or simpler ingredients which have been cleverly worked into appealing options like the tenderloin of Clyde valley pork served with chorizo mousse, a spinach and broccoli pavé, thyme infused rosti and a clove reduction.
