About Stravaigin Restaurant

A Glasgow institution Stravaigin was established 24 years ago with a think global eat local mantra. Stravaigin is an old scots word meaning to wander and that’s what the kitchen does creating a menu full of culinary wanderlust. Using the finest sourced produce from Scottish farmers and coastal waters the kitchen hits hard with spicy inventive dishes.

Steamed buns with soft shell crabs and sambal oelek, an assorted Scottish fish bowl with Pernod and fennel broth topped with a curried egg, Scottish venion osso bucco, Loch Fyne mackerel with rhubarb and pear kimchi. Stravaigin also offers vegetarian and vegan dishes with Syrian lentil and mint koftas and rose pickled onions, or wild Scottish mushroom baklava if the season is right. Squirrel, rook, goat and sea urchin have been known to make it onto the menu on ‘special nights’ such as the DNA Dinner, the Phylum Feast or the Weird and Wild Extravaganza.

The wine list is just as well travelled picking the best from sustainable, organic and biodynamic wines.

Drinking wine in the restaurant, meeting pals for cocktails in the café bar or al fresco dining on the pavement. Stravaigin has a lot to offer. On a cold and windy day in Glasgow, snuggle in around the stove, eating our haggis and nursing a whisky. Beautifully sunny and our doors will be fully open letting the rare Glasgow rays bathe you while you sip your Grillo and nibble on a Mediterranean platter. Bands, poets, writers, artists, gourmands, and gluttons - all can be found in Stravaigin!

Lunch, brunch, dinner, cocktails, wine or beer - Stravaigin abides and delights.

We had a really nice meal and thoroughly enjoyed our food. The waitress who served us was polite and attentive. We were the only people in the restaurant for most of our meal as it was quite early so it may be because of this that we didn't feel there was much of an atmosphere.

The service was great - a tall gent was looking after us for the majority of our meal and he was very personable. The humous with the bread was outstanding, the rest of the food was fine. Wine lovely. Cheers.

Just wanted to mention Abbey who managed my booking. We had a member of the party pull out through illness and the Abbey's service was exceptional. Too often you get a standard "ok fine we'll amend the number on the table" and not much else. Abbey was kind, considerate and professional which I really appreciated. She's a credit to your brand.

Compliments to the chef & kitchen staff, and thank to the service team. We really enjoyed our evening, delicious food and nice atmosphere. Can't tell you how impressed we were to see 3 full menus for meat eating, vegetarian and vegan guests, rather than just a few veggie/vegan choices in the mix of the main menu as we normally see elsewhere. Refreshing to see such dietary requirements being met with such creative variety. We will be back. A lot.

Apart from thinking that maybe the lights could be a wee bit lower in the restaurant, we had a really nice meal. Staff were attentive without being cloying. Food was universally excellent.

Everything was great. We were a group of 17 but we’re looked after as if we were a small intimate group. Can’t recommend highly enough. Many thanks for your efforts.

Good and drinks were great as usual, staff was friendly and helpful. The massive noise from various Christmas party groups somewhat spoiled the otherwise good experience

As always the quality of food and service was excellent. My wife has a dairy allergy and on arrival was presented with a dairy free menu - you would not believe how many other places seem to struggle with this!

Great food and atmosphere. Staff were friendly and attentive. It was my wife’s birthday and they gave us a complimentary glass of fizz each which was a really nice touch.
