Bar Soba Byres Road

Pan-Asian cuisine meets Tokyo hipster at the beloved sample of cool restaurants in Glasgow where seafood is captured in everything from nasi goreng with Atlantic prawns to a king prawn Thai yellow curry and salt and pepper squid.

Bothy might not be seafood-only, but when they sea-food, they know what to do with it. From a dill confit salmon fillet with a green apple and cucumber salsa, to a cod with lemon butter, they're taking local ingredients to new highs.

Salt and Vinegar

Salt and Vinegar brings nautical decor and a fun-loving atmosphere to Glasgow's Southside. Serving up fresh fish and chips with a quirky backdrop, the restaurant is made extra special with fishing attire, port holes and hanging fish nets strewn across the space. 

On the edge of Kelvingrove Park sits the bright and airy Mediterranean-style restaurant, Five March. Here, sourcing local and ethical food is of paramount importance so the result is fresh juicy seafood dishes paired with wines to perfectly accentuate the flavour.

Few seafood spots take dining in their stride quite like Gamba. With over 20 years in service, Gamba are experts when it comes to turning the locally caught in to exception plates, from seabass to lobster and beyond.
