Located roughly halfway between Edinburgh and Glasgow, Falkirk has restaurants that are the equal of any in its larger neighbours. Whether you're a local who wants to find out the hottest new eateries in town, or you're visiting the area on holiday, Quandoo makes it easy to find fine food in Stirlingshire. From innovative Indian dishes to classic Neapolitan pizzas, Falkirk's restaurants have so much to offer, so make a date to dine in style today.
If Indian food is your flavour, you're in luck. There are some fantastic restaurants in Falkirk offering treats from north and southern India for spice fans to enjoy. There are some old favourites in Linlithgow which have been cooking Pakistani and Indian delights for over 30 years, as well as upstart competitors who offer something new. Try new Indian specialities like methu vadai (spicy donuts) with sambar curries and coconut sauces, or tuck into fish curries that taste like they could have been prepared on the coast of Kerala.
When the weekend comes and you make plans to meet up with mates, why not gather at one of Falkirk's pizza restaurants to share a massive margherita or Siciliana and a bottle of wine? Falkirk has restaurants that go well beyond chain eateries so instead of lifeless dough and stringy cheese, these pizzerias know how to cook pizzas with crispy edges and soft centres, and they also make a point of sourcing gourmet mozzarella and fresh tomatoes. When you add in traditional Italian desserts like tiramisu, you've got some excellent venues to socialise or kick off a night on the town.
If you're in town to see the sights there are also plenty of wonderful restaurants in Falkirk to choose from as well. After checking out the Falkirk Wheel, taking a tour of Callendar House or enjoying a trip on the Boness and Kinneil Railway, leave some time to fill up on gourmet food to round off your day. When you've worked up an appetite, you can choose from Scotch beef burgers, 28-day-aged fillet steaks, fish chowder or pizzas before heading back to your hotel or rental home.
Scotland is a legendary food producing country and you can explore almost everything the nation has to offer by booking a table at one of Falkirk's restaurants. For meat lovers, there are aged fillet steaks and Aberdeen Angus burgers, Lorne sausages, haggis or black pudding. Seafood is covered, too, thanks to kippers and langoustines or wild Scottish salmon. And vegetarians will do fine, of course, with Falkirk's chefs using locally-sourced veg in their curries and pizza toppings. Just book a table with Quandoo and see what local chefs can do with Scottish produce.
If Falkirk's restaurant scene doesn't have any options that excite you, there's no need to worry. Quandoo also features a huge range of eateries in Edinburgh, Perth and Glasgow that aren't far away. When special occasions arrive, you can treat yourself to acclaimed gourmet spots in the centre of Glasgow or explore Mexican cuisine if that's what you fancy. And when you have to visit the big city for work, fine dining can be on the agenda as well. Just book the right place and get ready for some gastronomic delights.
