Mid century design, Scottish produce and a killer cocktail list make Finsbay a top destination restaurant in Milngavie.
With its name taken from a location on the Isle of Harris, Scotland runs through the veins of this restaurant. Here are three reasons why we think Finsbay delivers Scotland with a passion.
1. Casual dining done well
The menus at Finsbay have a balanced selection of items that put a shining light on Scottish produce.
Highland venison casserole topped with a fluffy Mull cheddar and chive dumpling sits next to rope grown Scottish Loch Leven mussels and macaroni cheese with a hint of Arran mustard.
We paid a visit and watched the chef make their Scottish sea bass with fried duck egg served on a courgette and potato rosti.
Take a look at the delicious dish below.
2. Scottish gin cocktails
The Scottish flavour continues through their cocktail list which takes inspiration from the Scottish islands.
Blackwoods gin and vodka hailing from the Shetland islands, Isle of Harris Gin and Talisker whisky from the Hebrides and Black Bottle from Islay are all used in their pleasing selection of cocktails.
Take a look at their cocktail map above to discover your favourite.
Check out the restaurant’s signature cocktail, The Finsbay, being made in the video below. It uses Isle of Harris gin, one of the best gins available in Scotland.
3. Quirky interior
Don’t expect the standard restaurant decor when you visit Finsbay. Quirky flourishes pop up across the restaurant, some of which take Scotland as their inspiration.
Mid century touches placed on top of a modern background with G Plan furniture, chalkboards and a beautiful full wall mural of a beach on the Isle of Harris.
If you visit, don’t miss the tv set turned fish tank.
