Explore Glasgow Finnieston restaurants

Over the last few years, Finnieston has blossomed from post-industrial backwater to a hip and happening district with a distinct arty edge. The recent opening of The Hydro has only boosted the area's allure.

Many would say that Finnieston's bars and restaurants help set the trends that the rest of the city follows. It's certainly a fertile breeding ground for cool pop-ups, gin-slinging mixologists and innovative young chefs determined to forge their own style.

Often quirky, sometimes unconventional, the most recent wave of bistros, bars and off-beat speakeasys makes Finnieston a strong contender for the title of Glasgow's most vibrant neighbourhood.

    Nice but not amazing

    Was a nice afternoon tea but you only got small tasters of each of the things. Think I'd be disappointed if I'd paid full price for this. You also had to pay for any additional tea. It was fine but think there are nicer places that are less expensive than here.

    Great last minute meal!

    I have not been to Fanny Trollopes for quite some time and now I am wondering why! Our food was excellent and the service was good.

    Restaurant with a great ambiance!

    This was the first time I had visited Shandon Belles and I will definitely be returning. I had visited the restaurant above but much prefer this one as it is less formal. We had opted for the two courses and a glass of wine for £16 and we thought it was excellent value for money. Three of us had the pear salad for starters which was delicious and I liked how they offered you extra bread - without requesting it. For the main course I selected the chicken dish with coconut rice. It was lovely and the portion size was large. My friend chose the salmon with mashed potato which she said was tasty and my other two guests chose the fish risotto. They liked it but felt that there could have been more fish. The cheeseboard was shared and was nicely presented and contained chutney that tasted homemade. Great service and ambiance. A great place to visit.

Regeneration of Glasgow’s Finnieston

Just a few years ago, Glasgow’s Finnieston was a very different place. Aside from the odd bar and restaurant dotting the Argyle Street stretch, the area was mostly deserted.

Today it is transformed. Finnieston has become one of the most lively, popular neighbourhoods for a night out, with a plethora of bars and restaurants arriving in recent years thanks in part to the opening of the Hydro.

There’s been talk of “the new Byres Road” but Finnieston retains its below the radar credentials, maybe due to its lack of public transport access – there’s no steady stream of revellers stepping off the subway…
