Don't be afraid in Glasgow's Merchant City

Art in the most unexpected of places…

Merchant City make over in Glasgow

Hooked on Gandolfi

In the mood for a taste sensation – and ordinary’s out of the question?

Look no further than the fantastic Gandolfi Fish.

Food fit for a Sea King, Gandolfi, GlasgowThis 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

Slick bar at Gandolfi Fish, GlasgowStriking 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.
