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.
Delicious meal and excellent service
Always excellent, great atmosphere and staff
Absolutely fantastic as always.
Initial table was upstairs beside the till. This was too cramped for four. The sewing machine design also restricted leg room. However staff were very helpful and arranged a change of table. A lovely evening.
Good vegan option!
Fabulous food as ever! Service was very good too. Thank you. We'll be back :)
We were given a voucher from a friend for an anniversary gift. We had never been before. Loved it and will definitely be back. Thank you.
Amazing food and staff as always. Thank you
The food (particularly the starters - mussels and ox cheek) really was very good. My partner commented that they were the tastiest mussel dish he’d ever had
I loved our celebratory family lunch in the cafe bar and so did Lucy, our golden retriever, the pet of everyone who encountered her. The food was great and the service was kind and generous and full of warmth. I am a writer and I hear that this is a meeting place for writers, so I shall come again.
Hadn't eaten here for a while but my daughter and her dad had lunch recently and said it was really great so went along for dinner. It was absolutely top class! I asked that the chef be complimented as our food was so good Lovely vegan wine selection too and the staff were awesome. Had a brilliant night and have already recommended to about 10 others!!
Excellent service from all: very pleasant atmosphere and all our food was very good, the special vegetarian shared platter and plentiful sourdough bread being a highlight. Good wine list and frequent but unobtrusive staff.
Excellent haggis, it was the first time I ate it and loved it. My waitress was very helpful and nice, I forgot to ask her name but she definitely made my stay more pleasant with her recommendations. Hope to come back next time I visit Glasgow!
Love Stravaigin! Great food great staff great venue
Really tasty food and friendly staff
Lovely meal in pleasant surroundings
We had a fantastic lunch thank you. The food was spot on. Only reason it’s not 5 stars as we thought there would be more of a Scottish twist. We’ll definitely be back though 😃
Staff were efficient and friendly and food was excellent as always.
Friendly. Welcoming. Great to see haggis on the menu and pig's head croquettes. Beautiful fresh fish. Love the cosy darkness and the lighting.
The staff are very attentive and friendly, excellent service, great atmosphere.
This was our first trip to Stravaigin and whilst we did really enjoy the food, the service was slightly haphazard. I think the issue was that we seemed to be eating at staff shift change time and we were served by various different people. At the end of the meal we were given a dessert menu, but then no-one came back to take our order and we decided to forgo desserts. I would still recommend the restaurant, the hot chicken curry was delicious and we really enjoyed the sharing platters and overall we really liked the ambience - just a shame we seemed to be forgotten about.
Food up to it's usual, very good, standard, but a bit slow to take our food order.
We have been coming to Stravaigin since 1994 and always enjoy the food and atmosphere. However on all of our recent visits over the last coupe of years the service has got increasingly bad and last night was the worst yet. e.g. we were seated for at least 15 mins before we were offered a drink - we requested a vegan menu and the waitress came back to the table 10 mins later to take our order completely having forgotten about the menu - we asked for the AC unit be turned off as there was a cold draft blowing down into the booth, again she completely forgot and we had to ask another waitress to do this - although there were 4 waiting staff on duty it took about 10 mins to get anyones attention to pay the bill. All of this is compounded by the fact that the place was not busy at all. We will be back because we do really like the place and the quality of the food is better than most of what Glasgow has to offer but currently the whole experience is being let down by the quality of the service and consequently, at the moment, does not feel like good value for money.
