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.
Another fab night at Strav .The service is legendary . Olivia goes above and beyond to give everyone the warmest welcome and ensures its a smooth running experience for all with a great team of staff . Lovely wine and cocktail selection too .
Food was outstanding. Service was relaxed and informal which suited the style of food and building. Cannot wait to come back soon!
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and cocktails in the sun were a great end to the day!
Great food, safe and hygienic environment, fab service
Love this place. Staff always extremely friendly and such a lovely atmosphere.
Great to be back at Stravaigin - can’t wait until it’s fully open again.
The food was delicious!
It was lovely to be back in stravagian! My only gripe would be bring back the Nasi goreng! Genuinely considering starting a petition lol! Lovely staff and food as per.
The best beer & wine bar in the west end - it’s so good to have it open again! Great for food too, whether snacks or meals. And the staff are lovely too.
Fantastic staff (genuinely blown away by how great they were), delicious food and great beer. The booking process was very straightforward - managed to get an outdoor table for lunch only 90 minutes before showing up, so that was great. If you are sitting outside, you'll be on the street by a fairly busy road, so that's something to keep in mind.
Had a lovely evening in the Cafe Bar
Great service, great pub.
brilliant service and the food came so quickly! will be back and recommending. also great vegan options.
Really nice lunch experience! The service was really friendly and fast, and they were really helpful with all of my dietary requests, ensuring I had loads of gluten free and dairy free options! The food was delicious, with a huge variety of different flavours. Would definitely go again!
All staff were friendly snd professional. Always been one of my favourite venues Food was excellent, varied, and interesting. and all dishes reasonably priced. We had a lovely time. Sadly, we couldn’t have drinks, but next time it will be different! Thanks to all who looked after us xx
Once again food and service really great. Loving the new menu! Pavement dining on Gibson st not ideal but from next Monday wine with food indoors!!
Always my FAVOURITE place and first choice when choosing a place for food, but the service this time was a little slow, and I guess the sitting outside rather than in a busy restaurant changed the vibe of it. That said - I will of course be back many many many times more!! Thanks!!
Another lovely Friday evening spent with friends in the sunshine :). Those chunky chips are dangerous haha!!! See you soon x
Great to be back as always service was 5* as was the food and drinks.
We came for some drinks outside and had great service! Very quick and efficient which is particularly important at the moment with limited time slots.
Great food and love the atmosphere,
Always the friendliest warm welcome. Delicious food and drinks with excellent service. It’s so great to be able to come back in Stravaign.
