Scottish seafood is famous all over the world, with delicacies like Scottish salmon, haddock, scallops and much more making their way onto menus across the globe. No matter where you are in Scotland, you are never far from the coast, and this means that even in the cosmopolitan city centre of Glasgow, you can sample freshly-caught fish from the North Sea. Glasgow is also only a short drive from a number of famous lochs such as Loch Fyne, one of the best destinations for seafood in the whole of the United Kingdom, meaning the menus at the fish restaurants in Glasgow are always brimming with the finest seafood specialities.

    Try traditional Scottish seafood dishes at fish restaurants in Glasgow

    Cullen skink, one of the most well-known Scottish seafood dishes, is a creamy and comforting type of seafood chowder made from smoked haddock, potatoes and onions. Originating from the town of Cullen in Moray, cullen skink is eaten all over the country, usually as a starter, and on a cold, winter's day in Glasgow, nothing will warm you up quite like a big bowl of it. Another must-try dish when dining at fish restaurants in Glasgow is Arbroath Smokie. A speciality of the town of Arbroath in Angus, Arbroath Smokie is prepared using a method dating back to the 1800’s. The fish are first salted overnight, tied in pairs and left overnight to dry before being hung over a triangular length of wood to smoke. At breakfast time, we recommend trying an Arbroath toastie, best described as a Scottish take on a Welsh rarebit made with smoked haddock poached in milk with flour, egg and grated cheese, then served on toast. Fish and chips is a British classic and no one does it quite like the Scots – we are pros when it comes to deep-frying things after all. Enjoy freshly-caught cod and haddock, beer-battered and sided with a slice of lemon, some handcut chips and mushy peas (of course) at the best fish restaurants in Glasgow.
