Hollywood star Will Ferrell took time away from filming scenes for upcoming Netflix film 'Eurovision' to tuck into a juicy steak at a popular Merchant City restaurant.

Staff at the Spanish Butcher admitted they "had to do a double-take" when the Anchorman lead arrived with brother Patrick on Wednesday evening to sample the Miller Street eatery's Meditteranean cuisine.

The pair reportedly enjoyed a mammoth 35-day dry-aged 1.1kg porterhouse steak, alongside a 900g chateaubriand from Northen Spain. 

They also ordered double helpings of their addictive manchego mac and cheese topped with puffed paprika pork skin, after "devouring" their first portion.

The restaurant is no stranger to a celebrity visit having previously hosted Hollywood actors including Chris Pine and Toby Maguire and UK stars Peter Capaldi and Eddie Izzard.

Ferrell was in town to film scenes for the Netflix exclusive alongside co-star Rachel McAdams.

The film, co-written by Ferrell, sees the pair portray Icelandic singers Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdottir who are unexpectedly given the chance to represent their nation at the famous song contest.

The comic actor posed for pictures for staff and took time to complement Spanish Butcher chefs after his meal, commenting the steak was "cooked to perfection". 

Restaurant manager Jamie Crawford said: “I had to double-take when Will walked in last night. He was funny, charming and it was amazing to show him some Scottish hospitality while he’s here filming in Glasgow.”  

“Nothing beats a steak dinner and Will and his friends loved our award-winning beef, saying it was cooked to perfection. We hope he pays us a visit again next time he’s back in the city. “Fans at Glasgow airport clamoured to get a picture of the Hollywood stars as they shot scenes in the arrivals hall earlier this week.
