About Stravaigin Restaurant

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.

Lovely meal. Shared two starters...pulled pork and scallops were both delicious. We all loved our mains. This is my second time eating in this resturant and both times consistently good. Would definitely recommend

The food and service we enjoyed, were both exceptional! Each member of staff made us feel so welcome, taking time to chat to us as well as making sure that all of our dining needs were met. The food was amazing. We loved every single dish. It was so great to finally be back in your restaurant. Thank you!

We were delighted to return to stravaigin for our first date night out of lockdown. The 4/5 is only as it was quiet and this could not be helped. The staff were fab(no issues at all, even though our reservation was lost) and our waiter, whose name I’ve forgotten, was so lovely and she made sure we got a table outside for a drink after our meal. The only disappointing part was that there wasn’t an option for gratuity on the card reader, we would have liked to leave a tip and were unsure if cash would be appropriate. Thank you all for a wonderful meal!

This restaurant is just outstanding. Our party of 6 included vegetarians, vegans and a dairy allergy and we all ate and drank very well. Staff were very attentive & knowledgeable. The food was excellent, all fresh ingredients lovingly prepared, flavour combinations were amazing. We were seated in the restaurant and although it was busy it wasn't noisy or too full of people.

The atmosphere and service was fantastic. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. It didn't strike me as a place I would normally dine so wasn't sure if it was for me, but each member of staff was so nice I felt very comfortable immediately. The waitresses who helped us were very attentive without being too overbearing, and the food was excellent. I asked if my compliments could be passed on to the chef and the waitress was happy to do so. Also, the decor of the place is amazing. I loved how it felt inside, like a sort of classy indoor treehouse! I'd definitely come back, thank you so much for everything. I had a great night!

Staff were incredibly helpful and the service exceptional, even though it was very busy, food was fabulous. Very pleased that the gluten free and vegetarian in our party were well catered for. Can't wait to return. Loved it. Thanks to your knowledgeable and hard working staff.

Really great dinner! Great food, great service, can't fault it! The bar is really pretty and cosy with all the fairy lights too, and the restaurant downstairs is also cosy and not too formal. Would recommend!

Our second visit to Stravaigin, which we have been much looking forward too, and not disappointed. It’s quite a trek for us as we are Lanark way, but worth it. We were lucky it was your Taste of the Sea the night we booked - a really great meal. All varied and tasty. Thought the sea buckthorn in the cocktail and pud was a nice touch. Scallops and Mackeral outstanding, but all good. We’ll be back.

Food and drink was fantastic however service was a little slow, understandably as it was a busy Friday night, but the menu didn’t flow very well as there were large gaps between some courses and small gaps between others. Atmosphere was lovely! Would definitely come back :)
