Modern Mediterranean restaurant in the West End

A short distance from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and Glasgow University, the restaurant prides itself on creating dishes with fresh ingredients that cater to all tastes. As Firebird aims to be a neighbourhood hang out, the atmosphere is informal and guests can test their knowledge with the pub quiz every Tuesday.

Plenty of choice & wood fired, gluten-free pizzas

The chefs at Firebird outdo themselves when it comes to their pizzas – these are handmade and cooked in a wood fired oven and have delighted many visitors with the gluten-free options available. The restaurant menu also features Mediterranean dishes such as the lamb koftas with coriander and apricot cous cous; penne pasta (gluten-free also available) with aubergine, cherry tomatoes, olives & feta; and baked free range eggs and pisto (a Spanish-style ratatouille) with tomato & garlic rubbed bread.

Firebird is also a popular stop for lunch and serves various sandwiches daily up until 5pm. Some choices include the falafel pita with hummus, pickled cabbage & tahini; the Serrano ham, Manchego cheese & sun-dried tomatoes; and the marinated burrata mozzarella with beetroot & herbs.
