About Stravaigin Café Bar
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.
100% safe and such a shame to see you have to shut/open/shut - no need in my view and far safer eating with you than in other places. The lack of even one “nice” drink is equally astonishing and not required. I am sure you will get through this and thrive because the demand will be huge for what you do - keep going!!
Great service and lovely food. Covid precautions were very well managed and felt safe
We love your restaurant and staff. We’re greeted warmly, looked after well and always enjoy a lovely feed. We hope to see you again soon!
Had a delicious lunch and excellent service. Highly recommend
Great lunch, tasty food and well organised service during the covid restrictions. Enjoyed our visit as much as previous visits in 'normal ' times.
Lovely food and service.
We had one of the specials for lunch what was superb- Rossi, puréed parsnip, spinach dish
Had a lovely brunch, staff were so friendly and welcoming and the food was amazing, also the best coffee I have had in Glasgow in a while
Service very slow but food good albeit a bit expensive for what it was - Scottish Breakfast for £11.
I’ve been coming to and loving my Stravaigin experience for more than 10, - the food, atmosphere and service has remained fabulous. During COVID 19, I’ve been to the cafe bar three times and each time my family and I have felt safe and had a lovely time. Thank you.
Fantastic brunch in a lovely setting
An amazing brunch experience with a lively atmosphere and top quality food. Compliments to the chefs!! Delightfully friendly staff too.
Great food and service- really enjoyed.
It was quite busy but we received nothing but friendly, helpful and attentive service - really lovely
Amazing! Food was delicious, will be back!
As always fab food and service even without the alcohol! Keep up the good work.
Great service & excellent food!
The booking form made me choose between breakfast/brunch and a la carte, but once arrived it didn’t matter. That’s good, because the a la carte menu I chose was looking short, so this gave more options even if we didn’t use them.
Great to see you back, Stravaigin - you were missed. Food excellent as always.
Food always excellent. Staff friendly.
We came in with two babies and it was the most welcome I've felt since I had my baby 8 months ago. Staff were so thoughtful, food was delicious - thanks for a really nice lunch
Really lovely place for brunch
As always a really fantastic experience. Staff are great and food excellent. Every safety measure in place and despite the extra pressure and stress on staff due to the current situation they are doing their jobs amazingly as always. Thanks millions!
