About the restaurant
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!

Excellent meal and service. The food was delicious and I enjoyed the small plates (“tapas”?) style which allowed me to try several dishes. The crab dumpling and the scallops were particularly delicious as was the roulade I had for desert. The service was friendly and efficient. My wife really enjoyed the cocktails (Cosmopolitan and Expresso Martini) she had. First time in Kelp but we’ll definitely be back.

I see why Lobo is always booked up, although we have managed a walk in once. The food is an absolute delight. It is fresh and packed with flavour. The wine is excellent. We were also very impressed with the staff. They are so relaxed and friendly. I love Lobo!

A great place that had good entertainment (darts), quality food and relaxed atmosphere all under one roof. Service was excellent always prepared to help without being in your reface the whole time. They also happily accommodated changing the TV channel to watch another footy game.

We loved it! Great atmosphere, had mariachi band and dancers. Food was phenomenal! We had the sharing plates and the tortilla chips with guacamole that they make right in front of you! The cocktails were lovely too, would’ve liked some rum options though! Would 100% recommend to everyone especially on a Friday/Saturday with the live entertainment
