About Fava Greek Kitchen
Excellent and authentic Greek cuisine
Excellent food and friendly service, very beautiful setting but the music/singer were overly loud. We were 6 people gathered for a birthday party so on a larger table and we couldn’t talk at all due to the music! Please bear this mind as it’s a restaurant and people go there to socialise. If we wanted loud music we would have gone to a night club!
Been to Fava twice and on both occasions the quality of food and service was first class.
Great starters and mains with friendly and efficient service from Hermes, Stelios and the staff.
Authenic Greek cuisine in Haymarket
Fava Greek Kitchen has one key aim — to bring the real flavours of Greece to the people of Edinburgh. In fact, some of the team’s fondest childhood memories are of gathering around a family dinner table to feast on a meal made with love. Now they’re sharing recipes passed down through the generations to conjure up the true essence of the Mediterranean.
The kitchen brigade take pride in importing most of their ingredients from Greece, as well as fresh produce from local independent suppliers. The traditional Greek decor is blended with a boho feel for a laidback dining experience. Eating in Greece is never rushed, so diners are encouraged to unwind and take their time savouring the incredible Hellenic flavours.
Greek tapas, classic mains, seafood and more
The menu at Fava Greek Kitchen has been designed to appeal equally to lovers of meat and fish, as well as vegetarians and vegans. Try out a generous selection of mezedes (Greek tapas), as well as classic mains, gyros wraps and skepasti (pitta bread sandwiches).
Highlights of the tapas selection include like the earthy ‘Grandma’s Potatoes’ with butter, rosemary, crushed feta and paprika, or steamed mussels with mustard, olive oil, garlic and parsley.
From the mains, enjoy a slow-cooked joint of lamb with lemon, herbs and spices, or a chicken fillet with lemon, garlic and olive oil. Seafood lovers can savour grilled fillet of sea bass with capers, horta, fava purée and garlic and lemon sauce, while pasta fans might want to try out the linguine with squid, prawns, octopus, mussels, tomato sauce, olive oil and white wine. Vegetarian or vegan? Tuck into a potato, courgette and aubergine moussaka topped with creamy bechamel.
