Gastropub
“Cute, traditional bar with a good selection of draught beers and traditional music on Tueday nights. For a more intimate dining experience, head downstairs to their restaurant whose motto is "Think global eat local" so as you can imagine their menu is rather varied but using the finest Scottish produce. These guys also have haggis on their menu for those brave enough to try it. Go on!”

Café
“Scots LOVE a good cu of tea, and a few places offer more variety than Tchai-Ovna. This charming, slightly peculiar little tea shop is housed in a former 19th century stables, tucked into a cobbled lane in the city’s west end. In addition to dozens of tasty leaf tea, they serve delicious vegan and vegetarian food and also host live music three to four times a week... ”

Italian Restaurant
“stunning Italian restaurant, with Italian​ sourced products, Eusebi only opened recently but quickly raised to the top of the food scene in Glasgow. I wouldn't know what dish to recommend as they all are delicious. If you are on the go, it is worth noting they have a deli and offer great Italian​ classics to take away and warm up at home. (the lasagne is a must try). Nice tip to reach there, you can walk along the Kelvin river from the bridge on Belmont street. 10 min walk max.”
