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.
We were a party of 3 people and we absolutely loved our lunch at Stravaigin. We had drinks at the bar before our meal and there was a good range of cocktails. We then went upstairs for our lunch. We all had three courses and the food was delicious. We could not fault it. Stravaigin has a really nice relaxed atmosphere. All staff were friendly and attentive but not over the top. We will definitely be back again when visiting Glasgow and we will recommend to others.
The portion of hake was very meager and not good value for money (an £18 dish!) the tomato heirloom salad was also a bit disappointing, Good, but not good enough.
Have been many times but felt this time the menu could do with refreshing. Starters and deserts overpriced I felt for what they were
Always great food and atmosphere!
Wonderful food, wine, service and setting. We really appreciated the special care taken to ensure we have a table that was accessible and to help with arrangements when pre-booking for a large group.
Cool place, very helpful staff and inventive food. Very relaxed vibe indeed.
Very friendly and helpful staff
Typically great food and service at Stravaigin. Service is friendly, efficient, and quick - and food selections and daily specials inventive and delicious. The salmon pastrami starter is amazing. Highly recommended.
My husband and I really enjoyed our meal on Saturday. The mackerel was superb! I would like to particularly commend our waitress. She was excellent! I didn't catch her name but she had long dark hair in plaited bunches (we were table 12). She was very efficient, friendly and able to make helpful suggestions/comments on both the food and drinks options. Always a good bet for a nice meal!
Excellent meal. A little hot in the mezzanine.
I ordered the nasi goreng and was assured it wasn’t spicy however it was far too spicy and I had to send this back. I ordered scrambled eggs and toast after this and it came quickly however by this point my friends had pretty much finished their meals. Might be worthwhile asking how spicy people like their food as I believe without too much spice it would have been perfect. Also it was very hard to get attention of waitress/waiters as there were not enough staff on. Still enjoyed my visit and would return though.
Great menu, great food and lovely atmosphere. Service a little slow...which was disappointing.
Dossapounted restaurant didnt bother to contact us when we were only ones booked moved us upstairs as if it didn’t matter no offer of complimentary drink or anything and it was my sons birthday ! If ild known we weren’t in restaurant I would have gone somewhere else very bad form
Everything was excellent
Lovely venue, great menu. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Pudding could have been better value for money - fig and goats cheese. Loved the walnut tart on the previous menu.
Imaginative menu, well cooked and served. First visit, I'll be back!
Great place to eat and drink with brilliant service and a great cozy feel and atmosphere. Highly recommended!
Lovely birthday brunch party with friends in favourite relaxed surroundings including our dog
Mezzanine is not what I expected to have as I booked for the restaurant : table really too small for 3 guys. Service good, meals rather good, but not at MICHELIN’s Level in my opinion. A bit disappointed compared to last year visit. Please improve....
Fantastic food, lovely setting and service.
Had a lovely evening; the food was excellent as usual. The skate wings were delicious. We had to wait a while for dessert but when it arrived it was a work of art. Otherwise service was very good. Definitely no complaints :)
Fabulous food, great staff, could not have enjoyed our evening more.
Thank you everyone at the Stravaigin. We had a great night, 5 stars all round for food, drinks, service and atmosphere. Not easy keeping a party of 15 fed and watered all night, but you did it with ease, thanks again.
Lovely "business" lunch - prompt & friendly service, delicious food and coffee.
