Celino’s is whatever you choose to make of it; a bustling cafe, a restaurant, an Italian delicatessen, or your Christmas night out. They’ve come up with a festive menu and, if Italian cuisine is your vice, then look no further. Featuring different mouthwatering dishes of pasta, lasagna, filetto alla griglia, and other meats, their Christmas menu offers “tutto per tutti” (everything for everyone).

If happiness had a taste, that would be it.
Rab Ha’s festive menu offers tasty international dishes with Scottish classics. From prawn and crab cocktail to chicken eagerly stuffed with haggis, steak pie och, and falafel with spiced carrot purée, it’ll be hard not to cram everything in your mouth as soon as the food is being served. Situated in Merchant City, this spot can cater for large groups or cosy tables for two, so bring your date, family, friends, or your entire office, and enjoy!

If you’re a seafood fan, then it doesn’t come better than Gamba. Winner of the 2015 Seafood restaurant of the year Award, this hot spot is runned by chef patron Derek Marshall who brings “the best of French cooking delivered with an Asian twist“.
