Still my favourite Glasgow restaurant
Really good food served by friendly and enthusiastic staff and right in the centre of Glasgow. What more could you ask for?
The price of a three course lunch on a Saturday, just £12.95, is amazing for the quality and quantity of food. Definitely a new favourite. Good beer selection too.
Contemporary Scottish restaurant in city centre
Ardnamurchan is a contemporary Scottish restaurant on Hope Street, opposite the Theatre Royal. As the name suggests, the West Coast peninsula of Ardnamurchan has inspired the restaurant and its owners have close links to the area. Whisky barrels, Harris tweed, exposed brick and stone walls plus designer lighting all mean that the decor treads a neat line between rustic and city centre chic.
Artisan produce from Highlands and Islands
The chefs at Ardnamurchan make the most of unique Scottish produce such as wild venison from Ardnamurchan Estate; Hebridean blue cheese and seafood landed on Barra. Some dishes, like the Arran haggis with neeps, tatties and a Ben Nevis whisky sauce, are very traditional Scottish. Others, such as the squid with Szechuan pepper and sriracha mayo take their flavours from further afield. Alongside the venison, Scotch beef, Ayrshire pork and Ardnamurchan lamb, the menus are teeming with the finest seafood. Shetland mussels, langoustines from Uist and Gigha halibut all stand out.
