Best Scottish Restaurants In Glasgow

Country of the brave, land of the free, home of the Irn Bru. Scotland is known for many things - its unconventional culinary offerings being one of them. But, besides chips and gravy and battered Mars Bars, it's also distinguished for its first-rate farming, Highland-reared meat and North Sea seafood. For those wanting to experience some of the country's finest produce or if you're just feeling Mel Gibson-level patriotic, here's a list of the best Scottish restaurants in Glasgow.

Waxy O'Connor's Glasgow

4 user reviews 3

An unassuming venue from the outside, walk into this Irish pub and you'll feel as if you're walking into an entirely new Hobbiton/ folklore storyland/ gothic dimension. With a seasonally changing set, bar and buffet menu, you'll be sure to enjoy a range of locally sourced dishes such as haggis bon bons, Irish stew, lamb rump, and goat's cheese & Irn Bru jam tartlets. Yes, you heard me correctly. Goat's cheese & Irn Bru jam tartlets.

They may have Scottish origins but these dishes are anything but traditional. The large menu features fun and inventive plates including various burgers, tacos and pizzas (shout out to the scorched jerk chicken & corn sourdough pizza). However, they do offer smoked haggis bites with house BBQ ketchup which sounds like a modern update that we can get behind.

Inspired by the owner's home region in the west coast peninsula of Ardnamurchan, this snazzy joint sources all its produce from the surrounding Highlands and islands. The restaurant's menu specialises in serving unpretentious comfort classics such as seafood chowder, braised venison stew and black pudding fritters accompanied by an extensive wine list. Magic.

Set in a beautiful Grade 1 listed building in Glasgow city centre, the US-Scottish restaurant uses the finest local produce to create its combination Ameri-Scot menu. Open 7 days a week, the venue also has a cocktail bar with a heavy focus on whisky, bourbon and gin

Rab Ha's

Located in the heart of Merchant City, Rab Ha's has an eclectic menu of International and traditional Scottish small plates, dishes and sharing platters, meaning there really is something for everyone. Sometimes they've even combined the two cuisines to create a continental hybrid. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you ... the haggis pakora.
