“Great place for unusual food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Great atmosphere and different restaurants. The hub of Glasgow for a great night out. A must visit when in Glasgow and near all the shops if your having a good Christmas shop and then want a drink or something to eat.

“Fruit Market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

There are ample restaurants to choose from, which pretty much all tastes and cuisines catered for. There was an arts & craft show on which plety of stalls and reasonably proced merchandise. A good way to spend a day when it's raining as everything is under one roof.

“Good night out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Merchant City Area of Glasgow is adjacent to George Square and has a selection of restaurants and pubs to suit most tastes. The restaurants vary from the good value inexpensive to pricey more formal variety. I have eaten in several and can say there are none of those I would not return to .Plenty of pubs of various suroundings and most are worth a visit.

From terrific shopping to fabulous restaurants this part of the City should not be missed. Within walking distance from both major train stations in Glasgow.
