From cool and classy to fun and frivolous, we’ve got a lineup of the best spots right here. And they all have some tables left, so get booking quickly!
Is there anything more romantic than a cosy space, lit by candles, and fuelled by cocktails? Nope! Kelvingrove Cafe is located in trendy Finnieston, and serves up delicious food in a relaxed environment. Kick things off with three oysters and a glass of champagne for just £15, then move onto dishes like monkfish cheeks, pork belly, and sprouting broccoli. And you can’t come here without tasting their delicious cocktails, our favourite is their Old Fashioned, a classic that goes with everything.
Staying in the same stretch of town, Mora is a gorgeous Italian right in the middle of Finnieston. No one knows more about romance than the Italians, so it’s a great place to bring your amore for some food of love this Valentine’s Day in Glasgow. Our favourite thing about Mora is their portion sizes: you can choose a small or large sized main course, meaning there’s something to fit every appetite. The focaccia is to die for, so make sure you leave enough space.
Cafe Andaluz City Centre
While Italians might be the kings of romance, the Spanish are the rulers of passion, making tasty tapas a sure-fire bet for a Valentine’s Dats treat. This Valentine’s, they’re also running a great deal with five tapas to share, and a dessert each, all for under £50. Choose from classics like patatas bravas, chorizo and black pudding, and gambas pil pil, all so good you’ll be loath to share. If you’re making a night of it, the city centre restaurant is in the perfect spot for heading out afterwards too.
Gorgeous Atlantic is definitely a spot to head to if you’re looking to impress your date with a stunning interior and a French-inspired menu, designed to spark romance. Get dressed up and grab a couple of cocktails at their gorgeous bar before cosying up in their secluded booths. Dine on French classics like bouillabaisse, rotisserie chicken, and escargot. Just remember not to overdo it on the garlic and kill any potential snogging later.
The Meat Bar
Is there anything more romantic than a big hunk of meat? How about meat with meat on top, served with a side of meat? If steak is what gets your blood pumping, Meat Bar is a good shout for a Valentine’s Day date in Glasgow. Not only do they serve up incredible steaks, there’s also a great selection of delectable sides, and they have plenty of veggie options too if you’re the kind of person that drags a veggie to a literal “meat bar”. Their cocktails are also great, including quirky accompaniments like maple bacon.
