Location and contact

Stravaigin is old Scots for 'wander', a word that nicely encapsulates the restaurant's ethos. Both the menu and d��cor evolve; there's a wonderful creativity about this West End favourite. Locally-sourced ingredients are used to create imaginative international dishes such as Indonesian pork balls with vermicelli noodle jam jar salad. For something closer to home, try the haggis - recently voted the best in Scotland. The subtly dark, leather- wallpapered basement restaurant shares a menu and nautical theme with the less formal caf�� bar above. Service is informal yet informed. The staff know the menu and wines inside out and are adept at keeping cool under pressure, especially during the pre-theatre scrum. Exciting , affordable food without the foodie formalities.

Ate here our first night in Glasgow, just around the corner from where we stayed in the West End. The place was friendly and comfortable. We had the beetroot salad, the pigeon and the sea trout. Their menu changes regularly, but totally worth a visit.

We stopped at Stravaigin for a coffee. Nice bar with nice staff. Located close to Kelvingrove park, it was popular too.
