In the mood for a taste sensation – and ordinary’s out of the question?
Look no further than the fantastic Gandolfi Fish.
This magical Merchant City aquarium* offers some of the most flavourful seafare in Glasgow. Besides impressive food, they know a thing or two about service. Their knowledgeable staff are happy to suggest the perfect wine and their jovial, relaxed approach is refreshing.
Incidentally our waitress was right – the Lorendona Monterey County Pinot Grigio goes marvellously with white fish.
It’s about taste
Striking surroundings (note the slick up-lit bar) compliment perfectly presented food. Here, looks matter. But thankfully so does taste.
Their menu is concise but perfectly formed – and there’s more than enough to tempt your tastebuds.
We start with their soup of the day (£4) – a hearty lentil that warms and satisfies. Next up, the baked fillet of cod served with peas and parmesan risotto with (or without) crisp pancetta (£15.95) is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. And their panko crumbed fillet of sea bass is a culinary masterpiece (16.95). If you’ve never tried Monkfish – I assure you now is the time.
Fish to go
If you’re set on staying in or saving your pennies – Gandolfi’s fish-to-go shop next door is a fantastic alternative.
Ever changing – always good
There may be more fish in the sea but few are as delish and delectable as Gandolfi’s. Their innovative and ever-changing menu is a great reason to come back – I know I certainly will.
*Ok so it’s not actually an aquarium, but at night Gandolfi’s huge windows and warm glow is completely enchanting.
