Our best date ideas: Glasgow
Glasgow may not have had the best reputation for its culinary delights in the past, but in recent years the restaurant scene in Glasgow has been booming. For an evening of traditional Scottish fare, Cafe Gandolfi in the Merchant City is a warm and inviting restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere making it a comfortable place to get to know each other.
Glasgow is also a haven for fans of Indian cuisine; but for somewhere that is a cut above your run-of-mill British curry house, Dakhin located in Candleriggs, is an upscale restaurant serving authentic South Indian dishes. For somewhere that may be out of your comfort zone, but definitely worth a visit, order sushi to share in stylish Japanese restaurant Nanakusa.

Drinks for two
Glasgow is full of date ideas to meet for a drink, but for somewhere off the beaten track, suggest wetting your whistles in Chinaski’s. With no sign outside you could easily miss this hidden gem. Once inside the classy candlelight bar, amongst their list of exquisite cocktails, you’ll also find 80-plus varieties of whiskey on sale.
If you’d rather meet for a laid-back pint, head to The Vintage at Drygate, which has an onsite brewery and extensive selection of keg, cask and bottled beers.
