Glasgow is viewed as a trend-setter in European Culture welcoming 2.3 million visitors each year. Consistently named by travel guides as a must-visit destination - the city is full of style and energy.
Glasgow has the best dining scene in the UK outside of London and has the metropolitan feel of a major international city, whilst still retaining the village community where local businesses know each other - very much acknowledging the city strapline that ‘People Make Glasgow’.
The restaurateurs in our city all understand that local spirit is a vital factor in presenting a town that is ‘together’. Sharing experiences and knowledge is a culture in Glasgow, which allows us to progress at a pace which many spectators observe with envy.
It was this spirit of co-operation and progressive thinking which led to the formation of Glasgow Restaurant Association, a not for profit organisation, which has grown over several years from a small number of restaurants to almost 90 of the best Glasgow restaurants. The Association has uniquely allowed a group of widely diverse professionals to exchange ideas with one common aim - to promote the excellence of the Glasgow restaurant landscape on a local, national and international level.
