‘Bravo!’ is not a cry of praise often heard in Glasgow but it is certainly appropriate for Torres Tapas Restaurant and Wine Bar on Sauchiehall Street. Serving a wide range of Spanish and Mexican tapas, Torres Tapas aims to bring some Latin passion to the dining scene in Glasgow city centre.
Located towards the Charing Cross end of Sauchiehall Street, Torres Tapas takes inspiration for its interior design from the bodegas of Barcelona and the pueblos blancos of Andalucia. Terracotta tiles, sunny colours and pictures of Flamenco dancers all create an authentic Spanish ambience, while the French doors allow diners to watch the hustle and bustle of life go by outside.
Great for sharing with friends and family, Spanish tapas are the mainstay of the menu at Torres Tapas along with a fine selection of Mexican dishes. Featuring patatas bravas and grilled sardines via nachos, fajitas and filled tacos, there is wide choice of tempting dishes at this friendly restaurant. From the gambas pil pil (prawns cooked in olive oil with garlic and chilli) to the albondigas (spicy meatballs), all dishes are cooked to order.
As well as tapas, there is a selection of main courses on offer at Torres Tapas. Paella, pizza, pasta dishes and sirloin steaks are also available. The kitchen even serves what the Spanish call emperador rebozado – beer-battered haddock and chunky chips. Diners can accompany their meal with a bold Rioja or sparkling Cava thanks to the wide-ranging drinks list on offer.
Torres Tapas Restaurant and Wine Bar on Sauchiehall Street is a fifteen minute walk from Glasgow’s Queen Street and Central train stations. It is easy to access from the M8 and Sauchiehall Street has numerous taxi ranks and bus stops. All of which makes Torres Tapas a convenient dining spot in Glasgow city centre.
