Café Gandolfi

Deagh Bhiadh, Deagh Bheannachd – Well fed, well blessed – the Gaelic proverb displayed in Merchant City’s Café Gandolfi says it all. Visit for the fine, fresh, locally-sourced Scots ingredients – fragrant smoked haddie, crumbly-delicious haggis; for the familia-style Sundays around the restaurant’s gorgeous sculptured wooden tables or for the after-dinner cocktails in the upstairs bar.

Meathammer at Nice N Sleazy

Chef Andrew Yates serves Glasgow’s most rock and roll burger in the city’s famous bar-cum-gig joint. Rev up for the weekend with a Black Friday burger – a Jack Daniels-soaked patty with tabasco, Worcester and barbeque sauce, with bacon, smoked cheese and triple cooked fries; or try things a little more off the wall with specials that have included duck breast, pork belly and comfit and chorizo. Well-stacked, dribbly-gorgeousness – these are burgers that mean business.


Authentic street foods, south Indian fayre, pakoras (try the paneer) pooris and popular curries made with okra, spiced aubergine and more, form Glasgow’s only vegetarian Indian menu. Dining is based on the traditional method of sharing, so expect lots of platters and tapas size portions that come with a spice rating of mild-ish to hot hot hot – handy for a first timer. Mix up your meal with their house special Indian Burrito or try a home-recipe Indian pizza.

Alston Bar & Beef

A relative newcomer to the Glasgow dining scene, this underground restaurant is named for a bustling thoroughfare demolished in the 1870s to make way for the city's Central Station that once ran on its site. You wouldn't expect a restaurant accessed through a busy train station to serve the finest steaks in Glasgow but that's what makes this place such a treat - and, with 51 varieties of gin (including a selection of gin cocktails) on offer there's plenty of reason to linger past your departure time...
