Known for its art, architecture and music scene, Glasgow is on par with Scotland’s capital when it comes to culture. But did you know that Glasgow also boasts some of the finest eateries in Scotland? Here we’ll explore some of the city’s best restaurants, serving some of the best culinary delights that Glasgow’s City Centre has to offer.

Looking for somewhere to stay in Glasgow? The Leonardo Inn Hotel Glasgow West End is the perfect place to lay your head after a long day exploring this fascinating city.

Two Fat Ladies at The Buttery

One of the best-known and celebrated restaurants in Scotland, The Buttery started its life as the Shandon Bells Pub in the late 1800s. Fast forward two centuries and it’s become a Glaswegian institution, serving mouth-watering cuisine and crisp wines in an elegant setting.

Now sitting comfortably within the Fat Ladies group, The Buttery is famed for its wonderful seafood, and boasts an eclectic a la carte selection of fresh scallops, salmon, sole and, of course, the renowned catch of the day.

Bread Meats Bread

Famed for its generous portions and rustic ambiance, Bread Meats Bread is one of those places that you’ll probably have to wait a while to get into, but don’t let that put you off. The eatery’s immense popularity is a testament to its delicious toasties, poutine and, of course burgers, for which it’s won multiple awards over the years.

Want to tantalise your taste buds with something exotic? Try the Caribbean Burger, infused with ‘Nduja Mayo and caramelised sweet fries. Or if you’d rather fill up on a classic, the Bacon Cheeseburger has all the streaks and flavours you’d expect from a creation that’s been crafted to perfection.

But it’s not all about the meat. There are some mouth-watering vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options here too so there’s something for everyone.


The first authentic South Indian restaurant in Scotland, Dakhin’s unique menu and impeccable service have cemented its place amongst Glasgow’s most exceptional eateries. With a simple, rustic-inspired interior and casual ambiance, it’s clear that Dakhin is all about the food, and guests can enjoy watching their dishes being prepared in the large, open-plan kitchen.

Recognised across the UK for its gluten-free menu and unparalleled authenticity, this is a restaurant that cares deeply about its customers. Light yet nourishing, subtle yet spicy, Dakhin’s eclectic selection of titillating dishes takes you on a journey through South India, and ends with some of the finest deserts from here to Bangalore.

The Gannet

A multi award-winning restaurant, The Gannet serves classic Scottish cuisine with a contemporary twist, the result being a unique and pallet-pleasing six-course menu that’s been critically claimed by critics across the UK.

The menu itself changes regularly to reflect the very best in local produce, with a range of meat, fresh seafood and vegetarian options to keep your party satiated. Wash down your food with locally sourced craft beers and wines from an extensive list, before satisfying your sweet tooth with one of The Gannet’s seasonal desserts.
