Rustic Merchant City seafood restaurant

Prime Scottish seafood and steak account for the popularity of Glasgow’s City Merchant restaurant and since its establishment in 1988, it shows no sign of floundering. An atmospheric restaurant on Candleriggs in the centre of Glasgow’s fashionable Merchant City district, the City Merchant is pleasantly decked out with rustic wooden fittings and a subtle Celtic motif. As popular with corporate diners as it is for romantic dinners, is handily located for Glasgow city centre’s offices and nearby theatres and concert halls.

Local produce, Scottish cuisine

The City Merchant will always hold a place in the hearts and stomachs of Glasgow’s seafood lovers. The Merchant City favourite sells plenty of highland venison, haggis-stuffed chicken and Scotch Beef Club steaks but it is the fish, lobsters, oysters and mussels of the clear Scottish waters which are its trump card. Play it simple with some oysters on the half shell or test the kitchen a bit more with dishes like the ginger infused monkfish on wilted greens with a chorizo & mussel broth.

The seafood platter is a monster catch of langoustines, oysters, scallops, mussels, prawns and dressed crab. If you really want to push the boat out then you can add on a half lobster. The excellent Scottish cheeseboard is another reason to return to Glasgow’s City Merchant.
