1 Merchant Square, Glasgow, G1 1LE

They pay a great deal more than lip service to local sourcing at Arisaig. See the whole pig from Berwickshire’s Peelham Farm that they keep in the fridge – manager Naveed Rashid will gladly show you a photo on his phone if you ask – for the celebration…

The Brasserie at the Chip

12 Ashton Lane, Glasgow, G12 8SJ

Ashton Lane’s most mature resident continues to outrun the ever-growing competition by keeping a stern eye on quality and culinary entertainment amid a laid-back, West End vibe. Every corner of the former stable is pressed into service as a set of niche…

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…

City Merchant

97–99 Candleriggs, Glasgow, G1 1NP

It’s a measure of a venue’s success that after 26 years of trading it can still pack them in midweek as well as at weekends. City Merchant has cleverly made the most of the demand for set-menu promotions but importantly, has not shirked on quality. The…

1114 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G3 8TD

Crabshakk is probably Glasgow’s smallest restaurant – night after night punters squeeze into a handful of tightly packed wooden tables or sit on black leather high stools at the bar drinking champagne, eating oysters or langoustines – all freshly caught…

The Fish People Café

350 Scotland Street, Glasgow, G5 8QF

Café is a loose term – a stunning marble bar, sparkling glassware and black clothed waiting staff suggest far more than the name implies. Yes, the location is in the middle of nowhere and a subway, taxi or designated driver is a must but the food is so…


225a West George Street, Glasgow, G2 2ND

Over the last fifteen years, Gamba has sat at the top of the pile as one of best places to eat fish in town. The basement dining space is bathed in neutral tones with an abundance of seafood artwork adorning the walls. Soft jazz plays in the background…

Gandolfi Fish

84 Albion Street, Glasgow, G1 1NY

The small but perfectly formed Gandolfi empire again impresses with their dedicated fish outfit. Black, white and chrome blend together giving a sleek upmarket feel to the open-plan space, and the full-length windows allow for some Merchant City…

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

Anyone wandering in the Merchant City will invariably have their eye drawn to the imposing and elegant Hutchesons’ Hall. Built as a hospital in the early 19th century (relocating from the Trongate, from where it has operated since the 1640s), its…

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

There’s a warming casualness to this smart two-floored bistro close to the redeveloping activity near the old Odeon. The casualness, however, stops in the kitchen, where the Butchershop’s former head chef Ian Hoey brings his expertise in steaks and…

Michael's Superchippy

891 Aikenhead Road, Glasgow, G42 0NT

Mussel Inn

157 Hope Street, Glasgow, G2 2UQ

As the name would suggest, this vibrant and upbeat restaurant is all about the mussels. They may not always be the largest specimens but they are Scottish, fresh and served in kilo or half-kilo pots with an array of sauces that include a simple shallot…

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

At first glance Old Salty’s looks like another funky bar/restaurant to add to the plethora of similar hang-outs popping up in Finnieston, but it’s actually a traditional chippy. Exposed brick with dark wood furnishings dominate while stained-glass and…

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

A funky little bistro combining food with rock ‘n’ roll music and memorabilia. The owner and his team offer a relaxed yet upbeat vibe hidden within Virginia court. Pictures of music icons hang from the wall while the retro plastic seating adds to the…


11 Exchange Place, Glasgow, G1 3AN

You would be hard pushed to find many Glaswegians who have never heard of Rogano, one of the City’s oldest institutions. Enter under the neon lobster signage and step into a bygone era. The impressive art deco interior dates from 1935, when the…

Simply Fish

111 Cleveden Road, Glasgow, G12 0JU

Having changed from successful neighbourhood Italian La Famiglia to a seafood restaurant this year, Simply Fish is attracting an appreciative following thanks to chef-owner Nico Simeone’s affinity with seafood, for he has won respectable accolades early…

Two Fat Ladies

88 Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, G11 6NX

The Two Fat Ladies are no stranger to our Hitlist and are well known around Glasgow for serving top quality fresh seafood. The original location, with a small entrance almost hidden away, continues to live up to their reputation. Elbow room is tight but…
