Glasgow’s finest al fresco eateries

As the most populated city in Scotland, Glasgow has its fair share of fine restaurants. But what about when the sun is cracking the flags and you can’t bear sitting indoors with your food?

We’ve wrangled up a quick list of four of Glasgow al fresco trendies that offer good outdoor seating areas for those long summer nights.


Located on Nelson Mandela Place, Absurd Bird is a quirky restaurant offering up a range of comfort food influenced by the American south. Outdoor seating is plentiful and you’ll love soaking up the sunshine with a Tennessee Waffle cocktail, some glazed BBQ chicken wings, and the mouthwatering Dirty Bird Fries.

There’s even a variety of vegan options, like the Buffalo CHCKN Burger and vegan mac and cheese.


Providing an air of Germanic charm and a rustic, authentic menu, Bavaria Brauhaus is a delightful restaurant-bar. There’s nothing better than lounging in the outdoor seating area, enjoying a stein of their latest guest beer, and stuffing yourself on some traditional Bavarian cuisine.

From the quintessential Bratwurst platter to salted pretzels; from Bavarian-style pizza to delicious Apple and Raisin Strudel, Bavaria Brauhaus delivers quality food at a comfortable price.


If you’re in the mood for something a little more exotic, Boteco Do Brasil could be just the place for you. A wide variety of Brazilian cuisine, a lively atmosphere, and a charming vibe really set the scene at this restaurant.

Outdoor seating is a little limited, but who can complain when the food is this good? Barbecue Prawns, seasoned beef and onion with boiled cassava, Brazilian veggie burgers – Boteco Do Brasil has a menu to die for!


What happens when you mix upscale fine dining with the local dive bar? You get a killer restaurant like Crafty Pig, of course. Boasting a menu of slow-cooked, American-style BBQ food, this is the perfect place to sit outdoors and spend the night with friends.

A wide variety of sides and mains mean that you’re spoiled for choice at Crafty Pig, whatever your food preferences. Veggies can chow down on smoked crispy tofu and frickles (fried pickles, yes!), while meat-lovers can feast on chilli cheese dogs and a rack of honey chilli and BBQ ribs.
