Glasgow chefs in some of the city’s trendiest restaurants are gearing up for National Seafood Week which launches today. 

The annual campaign, which aims to get people eating at least 2 portions of seafood a week, has created a list of the best seafood restaurants in Glasgow, from the fashionable streets of Finnieston to the popular Merchant City.  

Here are just some of the best places in Glasgow where you can grab a seafood fix:


Seafood hotspot Crabshakk on Argyle Street has remained one the the city's favourite fish restaurants after opening in 2009.

Loved by Glasgow diners, the restaurant can also tally its celeb-fans after ex-footballer David Beckham was spotted dining in the restaurant on Wednesday.  

National Seafood Week are encouraging diners to enjoy their delicious oysters, Fruits de Mer and muscles – which got the seal of approval from Becks who said they were “cooked to perfection” in a story to his Instagram followers.
