Seafood
At KELP we take our time to make sure the food that goes on your plate is a fresh and local as possible. We source our seafood to be specifically Scottish and sustainable. We pride ourselves on using local suppliers for all our food. The fish people supply our fresh seafood daily. Our bread comes from Soja bakehouse, a family owned bakery in Cumbernauld. Our meat comes from ABR butchers, based in Bearsden.
Our executive chef, Christopher Hutchison, creates amazing, innovative dishes to be enjoyed and shared with friends and loved ones. We now have an AA rosette for 2023/2024 to highlight his and the teams amazing work. We are located on Cowcaddens Road, just around the corner from our sister restaurant, Ardnamurchan Restaurant and Bar and a stones throw from the theatre royal. Perfect for a meal before a show. Relax in our modern, airy restaurant and watch the chefs work in the open kitchen. Our signature dish is our crab doughnut, you'll be amazed!

    Fantastic lunch at Kelp. The best food we’ve had for a long time, served by friendly and efficient staff. Beautifully presented ‘small plates’ which tasted great. Will definitely be back soon.

    Excellent, innovative food, full of flavour. Good wines too, and despite my 4 stars for value on the a la carte, the set lunch is excellent value.

    The food is excellent with severl small plates to choose from, which means that you don't have to take a chance on ordering a big plate of something new! We had the scallops, the trout, the mackeral and the brocolli with feta. All excellent! Will definitely be back.

    Outstanding food and service. Ambience was so much better than I would have expected from the location/building. Fab choice before royal concert hall.

    The staff were very attentive (when required). The table next to a window was excellent and the low background noise level allowed us (group of 4) to hold an unhindered conversation. The food was to the taste of the majority although I would have preferred more options without spices.

    Brilliant food at a reasonable price - we went for the market menu. Great venue for the Theatre Royal. Staff friendly and efficient. Whipped feta - yum!

    Food was great. Service was a little ‘reserved’ for the buzzy atmosphere they venue seemed to want to create. Could have gone with a manager welcoming guests and directing staff. I would return again though.
