Elià

0.2 miles
24 George Square, Glasgow, G2 1EG

From the owner and the staff, to the olive oil from the family vineyards, Elia’s unaffected charm lies in an unashamed celebration of family roots. Combining the unfussed approach of a traditional Greek taverna with Scottish produce to create an…

Café Cossachok

0.4 miles
Trongate 103, 10 King Street, Glasgow, G1 5QP

What does one expect from a Russian restaurant? Stroganoff? Blinis? Vodka? Perhaps that’s unreasonably stereotypical, but in Glasgow – where Café Cossachok is the one and only Russian eatery – such staples are greatly received and done properly. Instead…

Buzzy's Restaurant and Bar

0.4 miles
Princes Square, 48 Buchanan Street, Glasgow, G1 3JX

While diners at this Princes Square restaurant may struggle to find a lunchtime table at weekends when families descend and release their children, there’s no such issue on weeknights when barren tables lead you to wonder if it’s open. Rest assured it…

The Calabash Restaurant

0.4 miles
57 Union Street, Glasgow, G1 3RB

Opened by Kenyan owners in 2011, Scotland’s first pan-African bar and restaurant is a unique experience. It’s a great venue for people watching: diners from Glasgow’s African community create a welcoming atmosphere with sharp fashion and animated…

Anatolia Chargrill

0.5 miles
140 St Vincent St, Glasgow, G2 5LA

Anatolia Chargrill is first and foremost a grill restaurant, where chicken and lamb are sliced, skewered, charred, and served with traditional rice and vermicelli. It’s got a central location and an impressively large space inside that balances Turkish…

Viva Brazil

0.6 miles
87–91 Bothwell Street, Glasgow, G2 7AA

Despite its celebratory name, the décor and atmosphere at Viva Brazil are quite restrained – perhaps a reaction against the excessive ‘carnival’ vibe that some Americas restaurants reach for. Here, it’s all about the meat. For this is a churrascaria, a…

Tropeiro

0.7 miles
363 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G2 8LT

A vegetarian’s nightmare, churrasco hails from southern Brazil but is part of the national cuisine, and their version of a family Sunday roast. Set your dining card to green and grilled meat circulates the room via waiters that carve at the table. This…

Alla Turca

0.7 miles
192 Pitt Street, Glasgow, G2 4DY

As aromas from Scottish scallops and a delicious pomegranate salad wash over the room, under the soft glow from hanging lanterns, it’s easy to imagine that outside is somewhere more exotic than Glasgow. An engaging subtlety runs through everything here…

Nur

0.7 miles
22 Bridge Street, Glasgow, G5 9HR

Chef Ali Hammudah may be the only Egyptian restaurant owner to lose his kitchen to a Scottish hurricane (Bawbag) but the reopened Nur is well worth the weathering of a storm. You can taste the passion for food when tucking into fava beans in garlic and…

Babylon Café

0.8 miles
Clyde Place, Glasgow, G5 8AQ

This new Persian and Middle Eastern venture sits with an Indian curry house to its left and an Egyptian restaurant to the right – which sort of makes sense in world terms. It's nothing fancy inside – clean, crisp lines and tables hugging the walls on…

Restauracja U Jarka

1.5 miles
Sikorski Polish Club, 5 Parkgrove Terrace, Glasgow, G3 7SD

When they say soup and bread, they mean literally – soup comes as a deep rye bread filled with thick, delicious broth and chunks of sausage popping up. And a lid cut out of bread. This encapsulates a charming, quirky restaurant that serves up…

Stravaigin

1.6 miles
28–30 Gibson Street, Glasgow, G12 8NX

Stravaigin feels as fresh and inventive as when its doors first opened back in 1995. The emphasis on local, seasonal produce combined with a global approach to flavour means even the most jaded palate should find something to please. Look beyond the…

The Left Bank

1.6 miles
33–35 Gibson Street, Glasgow, G12 8NU

The Left Bank has a truly varied clientele; from families to students and even the odd dog. Chunky wooden tables, big glass windows and a smattering of fairy lights make it feel warm and intimate both downstairs or on the mezzanine. Thanks to a cracking…

Brel

2.0 miles
39–43 Ashton Lane, Glasgow, G12 8SG

Whoever said Belgians were boring clearly never encountered the work of Brel’s namesake Jacques, an enigmatic 1960s songwriter. Or the nation’s seemingly endless variety of beers, a fine selection of which are on show here, and large enough one of the…

Ketchup

2.0 miles
44 Ashton Lane, Glasgow, G12 8SJ

When it comes to knowing what students want, you’ve got to hand it to Ketchup. Set on the ground floor of a block of Ashton Lane venues, the American feel may not quite fit the cobbled lane, but inside, large booths and benches are crammed full of teens…

Cottier's Bar and Restaurant

2.3 miles
93–95 Hyndland Street, Glasgow, G11 5PU

Despite being festooned with an abundance of fairy lights and flickering candles and boasting a burnished golden ceiling, the dining room of this converted church has an intimate, relaxed feel. Chef Jonathon Macfarlane (formerly Ubiquitous Chip) is a…

The Greek Golden Kebab

2.6 miles
34 Sinclair Drive, Glasgow, G42 9QE

This is the sort of place people imagine when they think of a Greek restaurant. All the favourites are on the menu, while rustic bric-a-brac and cozy seating go some way to reaffirming the ‘old-fashioned neighbourhood restaurant’ vibe – which is exactly…

Ketchup

2.7 miles
1179 Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow, G41 3NQ

Sometimes the playful messiness that comes with devouring a towering burger is part of its charm, and this is certainly the case at Ketchup's Shawlands branch – aimed more at families than the student-driven Ashton Lane venue. There is inventiveness in…

Bibi's Cantina

2.8 miles
599 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G11 6HY

Bibi’s Cantina feels like a friendly, casual neighbourhood bistro geared towards passing Partick and Broomhill locals, but with only 35 covers and some terrific online reviews, getting a table may require a little planning (or at least a phone call).
