First time to Guys for friends birthday. Staff welcoming and friendly. Excellent food. The Scottish tapas amazing I particular. Very accommodating with cake balloons etc. Added bonus.... Superb collection of paintings by Gérard Burns to enjoy.
Unique Scottish restaurant in Merchant City
One of Glasgow’s most individual dining spots, Guy’s Restaurant and Bar is located in the heart of the Merchant City. Chef patron Guy Cowan used to provide location catering to the film industry before opening this deliciously quirky Candleriggs business.
From the eclectic menus to the bohemian decor, Guy’s manages to be utterly unique while also appealing to a wide range of loyal diners.
Globe-trotting does not begin to describe the extensive range of flavours on offer at Guy’s on Candleriggs in Glasgow’s Merchant City. Delicate sushi, mince ‘n’ tatties, handmade ravioli, Aberdeen Angus steak and wild Scottish venison in a teriyaki sauce might all appear on the regularly changing menus.
As much as possible is made from scratch on the premises and Guy’s meat and fish comes from Scotland’s most high quality suppliers. Later in the week, live music ensures a buzzy but not deafening atmosphere. A comprehensive wine list and colourful cocktail list help keep the party swinging.
