8 places for Christmas dinner in Glasgow

The weather is colder and the Christmas decorations are all over the shops so it’s time to think about where to go to celebrate the festive season, or maybe you are organising the work’s Christmas night out (I don’t miss organising that!)
Whether you fancy something fancy or something casual, there’s sure to be something to tickle your fancy here.  So heat up the mulled wine and read on.


A favourite of ours (we really should write about it as we always enjoy their gyros!). Yiamas on Bath Street have Christmas with a Greek flavour.  Feta cheese and cranberry parcels, turkey souvlaki and green bean stew are on offer with chocolate Baklava to finish.  Read more here.

On Bell Street in the Merchant City is a relative new-comer to Glasgow – Mharsanta, named after the Gaelic word for ‘Merchant’, can be found where Pancho Villas used to be.  Starters feature a Haggis Stack or retro Prawn Cocktail while mains include a Flat Iron Steak or traditional turkey. You can even finish your meal with Irn Bru Cheesecake!

Look onto the twinkly lights of George Square from Browns.  For festive lunching, Christmas party nights or family get-togethers. Browns is even open on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. A festive gluten-free menu is also available.

Enjoy a Spanish-style Christmas with tapas such as toasted bread and tomato, Jamon Iberico Juan Pedro Domecq and lamb.  Wash it down with a glass of Cava and maybe a wee sherry cocktail?

The Grill on the Corner

Love steak but the other half prefers turkey?  Then don’t despair! The Grill on the Corner has it sorted.

Pizza Punks

Pizza for Christmas? Pulled turkey and pigs in candied blankets on a pizza or there’s a full breakfast pizza to try!  A vegan pizza with meat & dairy-free haggis is also on the Christmas menu.  I’m torn between the mince pie dough balls and the peppermint Russian for dessert.

Bell and Felix

Head Southside to Bell & Felix for a relaxed Christmas.   Traditional vegetable broth or colourful feta and pomegranate salad.  Then move onto roast turkey or sweet potato and red pepper parcel.  Do you think you’ll have room left for the sticky toffee pudding?
