About Stravaigin Mezzanine

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.

Great idea about thinking global and sourcing local, however, some of the fusion doesn’t work. Flavours do not always gel together, and some were quite off putting. Tom yum soup is a clear soup, not a cloudy fish soup with prawns - a little more work to be done on researching the dishes and what flavours work together.

Meal was fine but the serving staff did not seem to have been informed by the kitchen what was available on the menu so we both had to settle for the haggis as the guinea fowl was finished. Nice meal but wouldn't rush bank.

Food and atmosphere were excellent. We always enjoy eating here. Currently using crutches and staff went out of their way to accommodate this and make life easier. One of my favourite places to go to.

I visited Stravaigin twice in a few months as I only visit Glasgow. I do not imagine being there without having a meal in Stravaigin. Staff, food, beers, all are 5 stars. The atmosphere is warm, staff smiles at you, they are all very pleasant. Never been in the proper restaurant as it was presented to me as the best haggis in Glasgow, haggis is served only in the pub, as I was told. Indeed, the best haggis in Glasgow is here. No wonder you need either to have a reservation or to get lucky to find a table. I would totally give 5 stars plus to this establishment.

We were passing through Glasgow on a Sunday night and needed somewhere dog friendly . We thought the atmosphere was great - proper pub feel and very relaxed . The staff were very welcoming and utterly charming throughout our evening . The food was excellent- I had the haggis and my wife had the lamb , both of which we really enjoyed . So thank you all very much for a lovely evening !

This is 4th time I’ve been to Stravaigin. As always the food is great as is the atmosphere. I was slightly disappointed with the service. The girls were lovely but when we arrived it took a while to be greeted and for a drinks order and we had to ask where to sit. The girl who was taking us to our table then got distracted as friends came in and we just proceeded through to the restaurant where we just sat down and then we’re greeted by another member of staff who was lovely but took a while to serve us. There was another 2 tables of people eating in both of which arrived after us and the one that arrived last was served first. I just felt that we had to ask for our order to be taken and for drinks to be topped up. The girls were lovely it’s nothing against them they just seemed a little distracted. Hopefully it won’t be like this next time as we love coming.

This was our first visit and it was mostly fab. We've marked down on a few points as we ordered a mocktail only to be told a considerable time later it wasn't available but it was still put through on our bill which had to be corrected. Apart from that everything else was fab! We will definitely be back.
