Modern Greek tapas joint
I noticed that Halloumi opened a few weeks back so I was excited when I saw this 3 Tapas for £8.95 pop up on 5pm. The staff were all super friendly and informative when I asked about the menu and the restaurant itself felt clean and had a buzz about it even for an early Tuesday afternoon. Definitely one to try!
We went to halumi last night and loved it. The food was excellent and there was a great choice I thought it was a little pricy though.
Greek restaurant in Glasgow city centre
Decked out in the jaunty colours of the Greek flag, Halloumi is a Greek-Cypriot mezze restaurant on Hope Street. A bright, cheery space, it is a friendly spot for a quick lunch, a pre-theatre bite or a lively evening meal with friends.
Modern and classic Greek cooking
‘Inspired by Greece. Made in Glasgow. Small plates. Big flavours’ is how Halloumi describes itself. And with a menu that ranges from a classic lamb moussaka to avocado and feta on toasted flatbread, it is easy to see where they are coming from.
As well as an appealing selection of dips and pitta, the menu is separated into seafood, grills, salads and classic old favourites such as stifado beef stew and spanakopita – filo pastry with a spinach and goat’s cheese filling. The grill section has a tempting list of souvlaki – marinated BBQ – and the seafood offer includes skewers of swordfish and prawns alongside seared octopus flavoured with smoked paprika.
With an express lunch menu, a pre-theatre and a full a la carte, Halloumi has plenty of options designed to meet diners’ varied requirements.
