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.

Very helpful especially as we turned up early and my friend had jetlag. Great service and food.

Delicious steak and the rest of the food was well received also. Liked the combination of breakfast options, light bites and mains on offer.

Staff were lovely. Food was fine but over priced for what it is. Very cramped dining in mezzanine, felt packed in, another diner at a different table and I kept knocking elbows etc when trying to eat our meal.

Enjoyed my first visit to Stravaigin. Food was good and its a cool place. The service was a bit slow but that didn't really detract from the experience.

Just wanted to make special mention of Nicole who looked after us on the day. She was efficient, friendly and nothing was to much trouble.

Mezzanine was very hot .... maybe some fans or an open window would help? Service was fine but slow as was pretty busy, cocktails were good!

I was told my booking for 5 at 7pm on Sunday 26 May was for the downstairs restaurant. When I later tried to update that to 7 people I was told that this was not possible as the restaurant was very busy. I thought the attitude was rather inflexible. Somewhat surprised therefore to discover that on arrival the restaurant downstairs was actually closed - no one had said. Lo and behold a table for 7 was found for us in the bar area. By the time we sat down - having spent substantial monies at the bar the eating area was virtually empty other than our table. So much for it being too busy to accommodate 7! We also spent about £230 on dinner - to be told unceremoniously that you no longer serve biscuits with coffee. A tiny point but perhaps reflective of an evening that was not characterised by friendly or helpful staff.

Mixed thoughts, above average. A bit of a hit and miss. o very limited menu. Maybe just a bad day?

Great meal, great atmosphere. The food, like the conversation, covered many international inspirations and totally satisfied our palates. Will definitely be returning for more!
