Wining and Dining

Maybe you’re a foodie or would like to share your passion for a particular food or drink with that special someone. Glasgow is an ideal place to do this, featuring everything from stylish Michelin-recommended restaurants to more laidback eateries.

  • La Lanterna – This popular restaurant manages to stay at a reasonable price point while serving up delicious Italian dishes accompanied by a tempting and well-chosen wine list. The lasagne comes well recommended, but there are lots of different options to choose from if you enjoy taking your time with a menu.
  • Sapporo Teppanyaki Glasgow – Dining at this Japanese restaurant is definitely an experience. Watch your food be expertly prepared in front of you on sizzling grills by skilled chefs before you devour it, and be sure to book ahead to guarantee your seats. Alternatively, if the sun is shining, why not opt for a takeaway and head to a popular beauty spot to enjoy your meals?
  • Drygate Brewery – Sample some of Glasgow’s best beers at this iconic local brewery while watching the big game together or enjoying the chance to talk. If the weather’s nice, step out onto the terrace to enjoy the sunshine while choosing from the 26 different ales on offer.

The Great Outdoors

If both you and that special someone are outdoor enthusiasts, why not take advantage of the beautiful countryside near Glasgow to plan a really special first date?

  • Pollok Country Park – For a first in-person meeting with the “wow” factor, you really can’t go wrong with Pollok Country Park. A past winner not only of Britain’s Best Park but also the Best Park in Europe, the stunning 146 hectares of woodlands and gardens that make up this park are the ideal place to enjoy a picturesque stroll while getting to know one another a little better. If you’re culture vultures, step inside Pollok House, the grand stately home at the centre of the park, to view an impressive collection of Spanish art and enjoy some post-walk refreshments in the cafe.
  • Glasgow Botanic Gardens – Get closer to nature with a tour of these beautiful historic gardens. No need to cancel if the weather turns – the large glasshouses here feature extensive collections, so there’s plenty of time to chat and explore while staying safely indoors!
