The key to a good seafood dish is often to keep things simple.
Much like today’s Big Deal with Gandolfi Fish on Glasgow’s Albion Street.
The offer is for two people to each have a two course lunch from the menu below with tea or coffee to finish.
It is available Sunday to Friday from noon to 4pm.
Of course, even the simplest ideas often have a lot going on behind the scenes.
For example, Gandolfi Fish is from Seumas MacInnes, the Barra-born restaurateur who has long steered the Gandolfi restaurants and bars.
Opened in June 2007, Gandolfi Fish immediately attracted great professional reviews and continues to generate great comments on its 5pm Dining entry.
With large windows, contemporary interior design and a specially commissioned artwork by Lewis-based Moira Maclean, it’s a sophisticated Merchant City restaurant.
Prime Scottish seafood dishes
Seumas has long championed Scottish ingredients and this Big Deal menu is no exception:
Mull scallops with Stornoway black pudding, pear and cider cream
Salt and chilli squid, pickled vegetables and Vietnamese dressing
Isle of Skye crab, curry mayonnaise, brioche toast, apple and tarragon dressing
Monkfish and prawn scampi, skinny fries and coleslaw
Roast Shetland cod with creamed leeks, peas and bacon
Salmon Wellington with wilted spinach and Hollandaise sauce
Gandolfi Fish has lots of admirers among 5pm dining customers. Slightly fewer than 500 of whom have rated it 4.2/5:
‘Highly recommend. Excellent customer service, the staff were all very friendly. The restaurant was clean and bright and the food was delicious.’ Rating 5/5
‘A wee gem. Lovely food, clean, busy and good value for money. We will return.’ Rating 5/5
This excellent Big Deal with Gandolfi Fish would be perfect for a luxurious catch-up with a friend or a treat for a family member.
You could use it for a business lunch; an indulgent Sunday lunch or a very plush alternative to yet another desk-bound meal in the office.
