Lively Scottish restaurant in Merchant Square
Named after a beautiful village on Scotland’s West Coast, Arisaig is a lively, Scottish bar and restaurant in Glasgow’s Merchant Square. As well as a balcony and cosy dining room, Arisaig has a cobbled terrace on the covered courtyard of the square. It is a great way for Arisaig’s guests to enjoy the finest Scottish food in an al fresco setting without risking Scotland’s unpredictable weather.
Contemporary twist on classic Scottish dishes
Refined versions of traditional Scottish recipes, often with a European tweak, help drive the popularity of Arisaig in Glasgow. The kitchen uses locally sourced, seasonal Scottish ingredients as far as is possible. Foraged ingredients pop up all the time in their dishes and the kitchen brigade takes pride in preparing as much as they can from scratch.
Part of the buzzy Merchant City neighbourhood, Arisaig puts a contemporary twist on classic Scottish dishes. The menus constantly evolve but typical dishes include cassoulet made with pork belly, ham hock and pearl barley or the haggis fritters served with an onion gravy and curly kale.
