    Great Seafood Resturant

    Visited this restaurant partly because I was attending concert in nearby venue but mostly because of it's growing reputation as a great seafood restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. Good choice of dishes all well presented and brought by friendly staff.

    First visit

    My friend and I try to go to different restaurants every Saturday when we meet and we chose this one. We were not disappointed the fish and chip deal with glass of wine, we asked if could change to soft drink (no problem) was great, to be honest the fish was so big I could not finish it, but I would certainly recommend. The service was excellent and the young waitress was lovely and helpful, in fact all the staff that helped us were first class. Definitely will be back.

Scottish seafood in East End of Glasgow

A’Challtainn is an award-winning seafood restaurant and cocktail bar in the heart of Barras Art and Design at the Barras. It is pronounced A Cawl Tain, after the Gaelic for Calton. As well as being the name for this part of Glasgow, it also means the hazel wood. The restaurant is on a mezzanine level overlooking the BAaD courtyard. The cocktail bar nestles under the restaurant and provides views of the chefs at work.

Sustainably sourced Scottish seafood

Serving the finest Scottish fish and shellfish, alongside carefully crafted meat and vegetarian dishes, the kitchen at A’Challtainn takes great pride in their sustainably sourced seafood. Beautifully presented, the dishes range from simple oysters and plates of langoustines to options like the pan-seared hake with mango, red onion and coriander salsa plus peppered rocket leaves. From the starters, the charred octopus and the Cullen skink are always popular. Neither vegetarians or carnivores are overlooked. The pulled shoulder of lamb with Israeli cous cous, harissa, pomegranate and mint would please the latter while beetroot gravlax or confit leeks with kimchi and kohlrabi dressing and wasabi mayo might appeal to the former.
