Our Menu





truly authenticCANTABRIAN DINING



The Best Spanish Dining in Town

Elena’s Spanish Bar & Restaurant is Glasgow’s newest and most exciting Spanish dining spot, bringing you the flavours of authentic northern Spanish cuisine all the way from Cantabria.

Located in the heart of Glasgow’s Kelvingrove, come & experience dining the Cantabrian way. Small plates with hand picked wines as they do in Northern Spain.

The items on the menu aren’t “Tapas”. They are Rationes or Portions and are larger than what passes for Tapas in your average Tapas restaurant.

Spanish Tapas are the small one or two bite savoury that come free with your first drink.

We suggest ordering one or two dishes to share, at a time with a glass of wine to match, then select another one or two leaving room for one of our delicious home-made desserts.
