Family-run seafood in Southside
Located on Scotland Street in Glasgow’s Southside, The Fish People Café expanded from a very successful fishmongers that supplies the restaurant trade as well as selling to the public. Having opened in 2012, the comfortable and inviting restaurant quickly attracted a strong clientele via word of mouth and was winner of the best seafood restaurant award for the Scottish Restaurant Awards in 2013. It’s a relaxed, informal place with a striking marble bar.
Fresh Scottish fish and shellfish
The Fish People Café has access to Scotland’s finest seafood and the kitchen likes to treat it with an admirable simplicity. Popular starters include the Cumbrae rock oysters on the half shell; the Greenland prawn cocktail with fennel shavings and Loch Fyne smoked salmon served with pickled cucumber and a dill mustard dressing.
House specialities include a chunky fish stew which is presented with saffron rouille, croutons and gruyere. The whole, tandoori-baked, Anglesey sea bass cooked with curry oil and served with spiced basmati rice also comes highly recommended. Simpler options include the crab linguine or the salad of hand-dived Barra scallops.
Non-seafood options include dishes like the rosemary-marinated organic chicken breast served with a manchego Caesar salad.
