The Glasgow Restaurant Awards 2012

Glasgow is widely acknowledged to be the best dining scene in the UK outside of London. Indeed Lonely Planet gave us the accolade of the Best Dining Destination in the UK.

In celebration of this, The Glasgow Restaurant Association & Glasgow Dinearound are delighted to announce their second Glasgow Restaurant Awards 2012 in association with Glasgow: Scotland with Style.

"It doesn’t seem like two years since we started planning The Glasgow Restaurant Awards that were held in 2010 at The Citizens Theatre. It was such a fantastic night celebrating the top bananas in the Restaurant Scene. Not resting on our laurels the 2012 Awards are going to be even bigger and better than 2010: the only thing that remains the same is the venue. It is really the Glasgow Restaurant Oscars and that is exactly what we have been planning or the past two years.

The awards are designed to celebrate in our home city your favourite and hardy annual restaurants, which have been around for years and give the newcomers a real chance to make their mark.

Every restaurant values their customers and aims to fulfill their expectations from the minute they walk through the door. There is a comment box on the voting page and we would also ask if you have any comments which could be used constructively, we will pass them onto the relevant restaurants.

We would also like to know about individuals that have gone the extra mile for you and totally surpassed your expectations of what service is. Restaurants concentrate on the negative comments they receive as that’s how we get better, stronger and more professional but out there someone is doing a fabulous job excelling and being an ambassador for Service with Style and they don’t even know it!

Go on make someones day, year, life...award them for just being themselves…uniquely Glaswegian, heart on their sleeve, bloody hard worker, full of banter and just an all round lovely person."

- Ryan James, Chairman of the Glasgow Restaurant Association
