2 for 1 at Bar Varia

Visit Bar Varia, an independent restaurant in Glasgow. With a truly German theme throughout, this is the best place for a fun and family friendly dining experience.

Available to eat and drink is a selection of German delicacies, ranging from delicious sausages to authentic German beers. All food is prepared fresh to order in the premises, using locally sourced ingredients. Try the Bavarian chicken and bacon salad, with marinated chicken and crispy bacon on a bed of leaves. Another option is Wiener Schnitzel, with tenderised pork fillet, served with Bavarian potato salad with a slice of lemon and homemade garlic mayo. Winter evenings deserve something like the Bar Varia Bavarian Goulash Stew, with chunky slow cooked beef and vegetables in a paprika and garlic broth, served with crusty bread.

Drinks include things like Weihenstephan Vitus, a light in colour, spicy single-bock wheat beer. This extra-long and extra cold beverage makes this single-bock a really special beer with full body and distinctively great mouthfeel. Another option is Veltins Pilsener, which is brewed using natural spring water from its own mountain. It has a delicate dry and clean palate, fine carbonated body, slight bitterness and a light citrus finish.

Beautifully designed, this eatery offers views of Scotland’s only indoor real snow ski slope. There is often entertainment on an evening, including a DJ set and a range of live music in various forms.

  • "Terrible Experience
    We tried to call a few times with no answer each time and also tried to book through the website which wasn't working. Turned up to get some food before our sons skiing lesson only to be told we couldn't use the card because we hadn't called. When we explained that no one ever answered and showed them that their website didn't work we where told by the manager that he was going to check the phone system to see if we really had tried calling (unbelievable). After about 20 mins he returned and said that he would let us use the card but the friends we had met there couldn't use their card. The food was slow in coming out and one of the meals came about 10 mins later than the rest. The food was nice enough but the treatment we received and the overall service was terrible. In the end the manager offered us a free coffee and although we appreciated the gesture it did little to make up for our bad experience. We go to skiing a few times a month now but will not be eating here again. "

    Great food, very good selection of german beer and good views if the slopes. Weekdays are best for getting a table next to the slopes when it is quite. There is also a soft play area for young kids to amuse themselves. "

    Great tasting food with a nice view! The atmosphere in the restaurants was pleasant. My only problem was the timing while waiting for food. 30 minutes for our starters, about 30/35 minutes between starter being cleared sway and the main coming, when the food eventually came the chips were barely look warm! Staff were very nice and happy to help but the timing let me down slightly. "

    Bar Varia is a great wee hidden gem! How do you make your nachos?! They are amazing! Good service, good food, nice to look out to the ski - slope and see everyone at their best! Or fall! Only downside is the kids play area means screaming children when you're trying to have your meal in peace. Best time to visit is mid-week because it's quieter. Friendly staff make the experience positive! I definitely recommend! "
