1 Merchant Square, Glasgow, G1 1LE

Named after the small fishing village located in the Highlands, Arisaig is a pretty restaurant with a romantic feel – an enclosed courtyard dotted with linen-covered tables and sparkling silverware sits on the cobbles of Merchant Square. It’s the…

The Brasserie at the Chip

12 Ashton Lane, Glasgow, G12 8SJ

Housed in former stables, the Chip is the West End’s most iconic eating and drinking establishment that retains much of its original character and culinary ethos, shaped by its patrons for over four decades. The mezzanine dining room sits directly above…

The Cabin

996–998 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G14 9UJ

Only just taken under new management at time of visiting, this small restaurant on the Whiteinch stretch of Dumbarton Road is understandably still in a state of flux – with just a two or three course set-menu available to choose from all day long as 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…

1114 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8TD

Never wanting for new neighbours in fashionable Finnieston as stylish restaurants open here with remarkable frequency, Crabshakk – one of the first in a wave of gastronomic arrivals to the area in 2009 – continues to catch a faithful clientele. It’s…

The Fish People Café

350 Scotland Street, Glasgow, G5 8QF

So far as locally sourced produce goes, you can’t say much fairer than the fish market directly adjacent to your restaurant. Indeed, it was the Fish People fishmongers – based beside Shields Road Subway – who were responsible for founding this place…


225a West George Street, Glasgow, G2 2ND

Serving fish dishes of the highest order since 1998 when many of its newcomer rivals were but a twinkle, basement corner restaurant Gamba has long been a mark of quality not just in its field but Glasgow dining at large. While shifts in the dining-out…

Gandolfi Fish

84 Albion Street, Glasgow, G1 1NY

From the unpretentious wine pairings to the posh scampi, there’s little that Gandolfi Fish doesn’t get more or less spot on. Found behind a people-watching windowed exterior a few doors up the street from flagship outlet Café Gandolfi, and adjoining…

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…

1027 Cathcart Road, Glasgow, G42 9XJ

Baked haddock with parsley and Spanish rice might not sound like a fish supper to most Glaswegians, but Southsiders now have that option with this new Cathcart Road venture that continues the recent trend for upmarket and interesting takes on the…


158 Ingram Street, Glasgow, G1 1EJ

For years Glasgow waited for life to return to the old Hutcheson Hospital, a glorious 19th-century building in the heart of the Merchant City. Following success with the Butchershop, James Rusk teamed up with the building’s owners The National Trust for…

Kings Café

71 Elmbank Street, Glasgow, G2 4PQ

Having come under new management in 2013, this venerable old chippy, with its strong claims to be Glasgow's oldest café, is a renewed attraction for anyone after a city centre supper. The reassuringly cluttered shop, looking like it hasn't been touched…


3 Fenwick Road, Glasgow, G46 6AU

Chippies that use biodegradable containers tend to be chippies that care a bit more, and Mario’s is no exception. A Giffnock favourite for ages now, it remains popular in an area with an abundance of takeaway options (and Whole Foods just up the road…

The Market Kitchen

69 West Nile Street, Glasgow, G1 2QB

What you’ll discover behind this modest exterior is far from ‘vanilla’. Muted tones and progressive ambient beats create a cool urban space for savouring Scotland’s natural larder. Using the best of what’s in season, fresh ingredients are given…

Michael's Superchippy

891 Aikenhead Road, Glasgow, G42 0NT

Mussel Inn

157 Hope Street, Glasgow, G2 2UQ

Where most of Glasgow’s fish restaurants lean towards the more fine-dining end of the spectrum, The Mussel Inn keeps things simple and informal. That’s not to diminish the quality of the cooking, all of which happens in plain view in an open kitchen…

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…

Old Salty's

1126 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8TD

After its Finnieston-chic and really rather arty chippy proved so successful over the last couple of years, it’s no wonder they extended the frying formula to the stablemate and less-successful US-flavoured Charlie Rocks on Byres Road. Both branches…

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…

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…

Rock Lobster Bar & Grill

1/4 Virginia Court, Glasgow, G1 1TS

There’s an incongruity between the rock ’n’ roll memorabilia decorating the walls and the thumping dance music blasted out during your meal – Rave Lobster may be a more appropriate title – but either way the message is received loud and clear. Rock…


11 Exchange Place, Glasgow, G1 3AN

This veteran restaurant was famously fitted out in the same art deco style as the Cunard liner Queen Mary when the ship took shape on the Clyde in 1935, and has proven no less unsinkable. Timewarp hardly covers it, as you enter beneath the iconic…

The Salisbury

72 Nithsdale Road, Glasgow, G41 2AN

In this ambitious Southside newcomer, it looks like boho Strathbungo might have finally gotten the grown-up bar-diner it deserves. The bare walls and filament bulbs are modern design staples, here matched with warm vintage greens and upholstered booths…
