Glasgow’s Top Restaurants

We all love going for a night out. This can be done in countless ways, whether it’s going to a bar or pub, attending sporting events, going for a walk, going to the gym, competing in classes or clubs, going shopping, dancing and much more. The simplest way of doing this is by going to a restaurant.

Getting together with friends to eat is a fantastic way of spending time, catching up and having a great meal. We can also go to a restaurant on a date, to meet with family and more. The one thing that is consistent is that you want the best things to eat and drink, and if you’re going out in Glasgow and want quality food, then these are the restaurants to visit.

Dakota Bar and Grill

If you head down to West Regent Street you’ll find a luxury dining experience; The Dakota Bar and Grill. Specialising in steaks cooked on hot coals, fresh fish and homemade desserts, you will be able to enjoy a fantastic meal in a stylish location. Using only high quality local and seasonal ingredients, this is an establishment that puts care and expertise into every meal.

You can book a table so you can enjoy their breakfast, a la carte, dessert and market menus, ensuring you don’t miss out on a wide range of dishes. With a bar being a part of the restaurant, you and your party are guaranteed to find the perfect drink, whether alcoholic or not. You can also visit the Champagne Room for some quality salmon and sparkling wine.


If you’re in the mood for something different but don’t want to compromise on quality, then you should go to Temaki in Hope Street. Sushi is a popular food but not one that has been tried by everyone and this is what this restaurants specialises in.

You can eat some quality fish food here. They have a variety of fish based meals, including nigiri, a sushi burrito, sashimi, maki and more, with bento lunch boxes available for a smaller choice. This is a great place for a casual dinner or lunch. You can enjoy top Japanese dishes and if you want to enjoy the food without leaving the house, Temaki offers delivery via Deliveroo for some Glasgow takeaway.

The Pot Still

Excellent food doesn’t necessarily mean you have to spend a lot of money. You can get a great meal and a welcoming atmosphere without emptying your bank. The place to do this is The Pot Still. Also located in Hope Street, this pub and restaurant can provide you with some fine examples of homemade pies and assortments of Scottish food. They boast having over 700 whiskies available so you can find a drink right for you or try something new.

This establishment has been in existence in one form or another for one-hundred and fifty years and is currently run by the Murphy family. They are the winners of both the Scottish Dram Awards Whisky Bar of the Year and Scottish Field Magazine’s Whisky Bar of the Year Award in 2016, proving The Pot Still is worth a visit.
