GLASGOW has every cuisine imaginable. Here are a few traditional (and some less traditional) establishments to visit this weekend, whatever your taste or budget.

108 Argyle Street

Sloans offers a surprisingly rare commodity: the classic lamb roast dinner. This might be with good reason - is anyone’s favourite roast dinner lamb?

But it is particularly important this weekend as lamb is the traditional food of Passover. So if you favour a more Christian celebration of Easter, maybe Sloans is your spot. Visit

Cafe Andaluz
12-15 St Vincent Place/2 Cresswell Lane

Despite its dedicated Easter menu, Cafe Andaluz will hopefully have a spare table this weekend as they have two venues in Glasgow - one central and one in the West End.

Their menu offers bread and olives, three sizeable tapas and a dessert for £19.95. There is plenty of black pudding on the menu for those unconvinced by Spanish cuisine. Visit

28 Gibson Street

An Easter meal out does not have to mean lunch. Why not treat yourself to an indulgent breakfast this weekend?

Choose from eggs Benedict, Turkish eggs and flatbread, wild mushroom ragu and sourdough, or French toast and maple syrup at this West End institution currently celebrating its 25th anniversary. Stravaigin also does evening meals if you miss the 12-5 breakfast and lunch slot. Visit

Bread Meats Bread
104 St Vincent Street/701 Great Western Road

It might not be traditional Easter fare, but does anyone not love the trusty burger? Especially when they do not take bookings, so it’s first come, first served at peak times.

There are two branches of Bread Meats Bread in Glasgow (and one in Edinburgh). They have won a slew of well-deserved awards since their 2012 conception, including being Yelp’s top place to eat in the city. Their unusual ingredients - a doughnut instead of a bun - and some interesting names - Lamburghini - make this one of the more interesting burger bars in town. Visit

La Fiorentina
1 Paisley Road West

Make it a family affair this Easter at the charming La Fiorentina, situated in the striking Angel building just south of the Clyde.

Their classic decor, service and Italian cuisine make for a solid ambience. They even serve their own Italian take on a Sunday roast. Visit

49 West Nile Street

Bread Meats Bread’s Mediterranean cousin serves Greek, Turkish and Levantine street food. (They also do not take reservations.)

Think skin-on fries and hearty, not entirely unhealthy chicken and red pepper kebabs and you are in the right area.‘Babs (as in kebabs) is only a stone’s throw from BMB’s St Vincent Street branch, so it seems as though they are taking over Glasgow fast. Visit

Obsession of India
25 High Street

In the Merchant City area of Glasgow, Obsession of India might be the city’s classiest Indian establishment.

They truly care about their product, promising that everything from their kitchen is homemade, and it shows. Just check their TripAdvisor reviews. Visit

The Pot Still
154 Hope Street

The Pot Still is a classic pub in the heart of Glasgow with a globe-spanning collection of drinks and a tasty selection of pies … the most expensive of which are £4. (That is not a typo.) They also serve toasties and soup.

Punters seem to love the place and its budget food that much that the pub actually sells merchandise on their website too. Visit

BKK Cafe
31 Hyndland Street

If leaving the house is the last thing you want to do on Easter weekend, BKK Cafe’s Thai grub can be ordered through Just Eat. Its reasonable food has rave reviews online, and can be eaten at the cosy cafe itself too. Visit
