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.
Downstairs can be a little quiet, but suspect that might have been the time we chose; otherwise, food is superb and service was really good Will def return but perhaps upstairs.
Enjoyable food with an interesting twist.
Fabulous food & lovely relaxed atmosphere Waitress staff were very helpful and friendly
Amazing food, in buzzing contemporary restaurant. Service was not overbearing. For quality of food which is not far off Michelin star the value is excellent. Bistro food upstairs in bar is also fantastic
Noisy in lower floor, A/C too cold
I was absolutely delighted with the level of service shown by the staff on Tuesday evening They took the time to describe the dishes and drinks on the menu and the chef agreed to make haggis x 12 starters for out whole table despite it not being on the pre-theatre menu. Our guests from China had a wonderful evening. Many thanks!
Everything was excellent! Portion size on the Fried Rice was really large.. Could easily make that fried rice for two by adding more protein and then including the veg on the side.
Lovely food, good service, relaxed atmosphere.
Best meal out I've had in years. Even the complimentary sweet potato dip and sourdough before the meal was to die for.
Had a lovely brunch, we were all well looked after and the food was great, would recommend eating here :)
Excellent food and excellent service. Always enjoy the themed nights. Good value.
The food and service were excellent. The, normally great atmosphere was a little subdued but it was a Sunday evening so that is perhaps to be expected. Very good.
Food divine as usual and the wine was delicious.
Great place to spend an evening, outstanding food and drink.
It was all great but the vegetarian options were very dominated by middle eastern/spicy food. Not all vegetarians like spicy food. When we last came (a few years ago) your veggie menu was better.
Food was amazing, we’ll be back again very soon! Big thank you to all your staff.
The food was excellent when it came , although we waited 40 minutes between courses and complaint was handled very poorly at first. . I have to say the attitude spoiled our evening
We were asked a few too many times if we wanted to buy more drinks. Otherwise service was fine and food was fantastic.
Beautiful meal, had to wait a few times to get the attention of staff to order further drinks but enjoyed time there.
Great night out with lovely, attentive staff. Would absolutely recommend and will be back. Thank you!
great meal . the only downfall was not having the price and list of matching drinks beforehand
Everything about our visit to Stravaigin was excellent. The attention to detail from everyone was impressive. Tasting menu was really interesting and I thought all the flavour combinations were superb.
The flavours in the food are exceptional.
All four of us thoroughly enjoyed the different choices of cocktails food and wine we had.
The staff were excellent but clearly very busy with the result that the time to wait for courses was too long. We had been asked to vacate by 9pm and couldn't therefore order pudding.
