Arisaig

1 Merchant Square, Glasgow, G1 1LE

You’d think Arisaig’s location around that climate-free covered-style courtyard would pull in weather-beaten punters all day long, but although evening crowds throng, the cobbled delights of Merchant Square are a tad more sedate around lunchtime which…

Crabshakk

1114 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8TD

No place captures the energy of the Finnieston renaissance better than Crabshakk, a few years old but still packed to the rafters most evenings. At the bar and on the mezzanine, diners sit beside, opposite – practically on top of each other. Brushed…

Rogano

11 Exchange Place, Glasgow, G1 3AN

Entering Rogano – one of Glasgow’s best-known restaurants – is like stepping onto a Cunard liner circa 1930. This 80-year-old institution and its Art Deco stylings are well documented but there’s nowhere else in the city remotely like it. The experience…

Gamba

225a West George Street, Glasgow, G2 2ND

Even by fish restaurant standards, Gamba’s luxurious touches (and hefty prices) put it at the top end of the scale. Many dishes use more than one type of seafood for some unashamed, full-on eating. Take the Isle of Ghiga Halibut – a choice catch at the…

Red Leaf Restaurant

Alea Casino, Springfield Quay, Paisley Road, Glasgow, G5 8NP

A vast, open-plan space, its floors linked by escalators like a shopping mall or an airport, the Alea casino at Springfield Quay could be anywhere. Make your way through the gaming tables to the Red Leaf restaurant, however, and you know you’re in…

Hutchesons

158 Ingram Street, Glasgow, G1 1EJ

Simply Fish

111 Cleveden Road, Glasgow, G12 0JU

The Cabin

996–998 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G14 9UJ

What the Cabin lacks in location (a rather uninspiring spot on the Whiteinch-end of Dumbarton Road) it makes up for in quality cooking and bags of character. The outside is decorated with sophisticated art deco-style lettering, but inside it is…

Wee Fry

159 Milngavie Road, Glasgow, G61 3DY

Part of the portfolio of seafood shops and eateries owned by renowed fishmonger MacCallum's of Troon, Wee Fry's big sister, Wee Hurrie on Troon's harbour, has set the bar high for its sibling, which follows a similar template of top-quality, well-cooked…

Gandolfi Fish

84 Albion Street, Glasgow, G1 1NY

The quiet assuredness and sensible prices of Seumas MacInnes’s fish venture mean it does more than just bask in the nearby glory of its much older brother, Café Gandolfi. Scotland’s waters provide the produce but it’s the continental ‘fritto misto’ that…

Mussel Inn

157 Hope Street, Glasgow, G2 2UQ

The informality of the Mussel Inn is one of its principal attractions – a relaxed, almost café-esque atmosphere that’s enjoyably appropriate for the experience of tearing mussels from their shells, getting fingers dirty and dipping bread into the…

City Merchant

97–99 Candleriggs, Glasgow, G1 1NP

Established in 1988, City Merchant's reputation as one of the best fish restaurants in Glasgow is as much down to owners who pride themselves on the freshness of their seafood as it is to the resulting cuisine that is undeniably impressive. A decadent…

The Night Star

570 Clarkston Road, Glasgow, G44 3SQ

Just as Glasgow meets East Renfrewshire, on the main road but still feeling like it’s tucked away in a corner (and easy to drive by), The Night Star’s slightly ominous name belies a homely and family-run chippy that’s been turning out fish suppers for…

Urban Bar & Brasserie

23–25 St Vincent Place, Glasgow, G1 2DT

Visited November 2013. Urban can look a little daunting. Its grand exterior gives way to a French bistro-style interior, with uniformed bar staff and white tablecloths. In short it looks expensive. But there’s no need to be intimidated – it’s cheaper…

Rock Lobster Bar & Grill

1/4 Virginia Court, Glasgow, G1 1TS

The Virginia Galleries closed ages ago but for many Glaswegians they remain the most recent memory of the pass between Virginia Street and Miller Street. Yet the redevelopment of this gorgeous wee pocket of the Merchant City has been quietly happening…

Gandolfi Fish to Go

86 Albion Street, Glasgow, G1 1NY

The little takeaway, all gleaming white tiles, at the side of their fish restaurant is a typically classy offering from Gandolfi. The bustling shared kitchen, theatrically revealed through the large ordering hatch, is responsible for the cooked-to-order…

Two Fat Ladies

88 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G11 6NX

The original Two Fat Ladies balances restaurant details with less formal, bistro-esque qualities. The dark interior with its ornate golden border looks towards the former; an open plan kitchen and chatty ambience nudge things the other way – a classy…

Philadelphia Fish and Chicken Bar

445 Great Western Road, Glasgow, G12 8HH

The long-standing Philly is about as traditional as a chippy gets, offering consistently good food that attracts an endless crowd of schoolkids, workers and locals, as well as revellers on the late-night opening. The owners have the neighbouring La…

Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery

652 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8UF

The Buttery is the only ‘destination’ restaurant in Glasgow that actually feels like a quest to get to, hidden in no-man’s land near the M8. Hushed tones, stained glass, ornaments everywhere – it’s full of character, as well as fine food (and not just…

Two Fat Ladies in the City

118a Blythswood Street, Glasgow, G2 4EG

It’s nice to see roast salmon on a Glasgow menu, and even nicer to have thoroughly crispened, blackened skin that gives way to robust flesh with heaps of flavour. It’s typical of the Two Fat Ladies restaurants, where produce is high quality and cooking…

Old Salty's

1126 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8TD

Located not far from stylish Crabshakk, opposite retro-revived Kelvingrove Café and near neighbour to long-anticipated newcomer the Gannet, Old Salty’s gives itself the rather prosaic billing of a traditional chippy. However, this is a café that’s as…

The Brasserie at the Chip

12 Ashton Lane, Glasgow, G12 8SJ

]Sitting up in the rafters of this great Glasgow institution, in amongst the fairy lights and green, leafy plants, one can feel quite smug: although the brasserie menu may be less grand than the downstairs courtyard, you can still sample excellent…

The Fish People Café

350 Scotland Street, Glasgow, G5 8QF

They were queuing round the corner when the Fish People Café first opened, such is the reputation of owner Andy Bell and the fishmongers he operates directly opposite (supplying at least two other restaurants in this guide). Don’t be put off by the…

The Chippy Doon The Lane

84 Buchanan Street, McCormick Lane, Glasgow, G1 3AJ

Whether the lane in question exudes shabby charm or is plain old shabby, the presentation inside this welcoming chippy 'doon' it is undeniably stylish. Attention is paid to the smallest details, from the lemon wedge garnish and paper tub of home-made…

Michael's Superchippy

891 Aikenhead Road, Glasgow, G42 0NT
