    Absolutely fabulous venue !

    The experience starts as you enter, the smells oooozing from the kitchen are mouthwatering, so is the menu as you salivate over the vast array of seafood. W3 started with the oysters, a tad small if you want to be honest. We all had the mighty meaty fish soup, Lordy, it was more like a stew, certainly well worth the £6. Main course, it only could be the signature dish, Seafood Platter, no not telling you about it, you have to experience it - you will struggle to finish it, if their was a criticism, where is the bread to mop up the remnants? We didn’t have dessert, far too full after the behemoth platter just consumed, so no better way to finish off a fabulous meal other than to have a wee whisky. Service was fabulous, the staff there when they had to be, and distant when they didn’t, this is a well run professional establishment, a trendy west end bistro, certainly casual is certainly the way to dress. Highly commended establishment.

    Nice restaurant

    Main meal with glass of wine in price so it was around £16, fish was melt in the mouth couldn't fault it only gripe we ordered nibles to start. I had big bowl of olives with bread and dip, my husband had bread and balsamic dip disappointed it wasn't variety of bread, just white and the husband had a slice which was hard one side, so given it was £6 and £4.50 respectively seemed a bit pricey for 4 small slices of bread, but staff were lovely and we always go in for a drink when we are in finniston.

Seafood bar and restaurant in Finnieston

Taking its name from the hip and fashionable area in which it sits, The Finnieston Bar and Restaurant is a safe haven for seafood lovers. Cosy wooden booths, a few tiled walls, storm lamps, rigging and fishing photos all lend an appropriately nautical theme. An open fire keeps it all cosy. If the decor tips a wink to old sea dogs, the cooking – and the cocktail list – are distinctly more modern and urban. An outside seating area is popular when the weather is behaving.

Carefully sourced Scottish seafood

The Finnieston’s kitchens place great emphasis on serving sustainable, ethically-sourced Scottish seafood. This might mean local oysters prepared a variety of ways or small plates of stuffed Shetland squid or pan-seared Tarbet scallops. Main courses revolve around the fish of the day which are served as fish ‘n’ chips or as a design your own dinner with customers choosing which sides and sauces they would like with their fish.
A wide range of daily specials might include whole roasted sea bass with a Bramley apple stuffing or Scrabster turbot in a tomato consommé. There are always vegetarian and meat options like the 28 day-aged Macduff Sirloin steaks.
