My first time at Evoo after being recommended it by a friend. We had the 2 small plates lunch offer and it was delicious. Great service and good value. Will be back.
Rare to find a warm and friendly eatery on your doorstep. Tucked up at the top of Hope Street, opposite the Thearte Royal, it is a gem. Staff are welcoming, warm and friendly and as for the food it is amazing. All dishes are served as they are freshly made and so they come to your table as they are ready and all are delicious. The star for me was the humble bread and oils, nothing humble about these artisan treats and homemade garlic olive oil is amazing. EVOO is a treasure.
Casual Mediterranean dining in Cowcaddens
A brightly coloured city centre restaurant, EVOO specialises in serving up a variety of Mediterranean flavours, small plate style. Alternatively, you can drop by for brunch or a coffee, or relax with a cocktail, wine, beer or perfect serve gin. The restaurant’s closeness to the Theatre Royal makes it a handy pre-theatre option as well.
Meat, seafood and veggie small plates
Italian, Spanish, Greek and even Moroccan cooking styles are all on show at EVOO. As you might guess by the name, there is even a range of flavoured extra virgin olive oils to sample (make sure to mop one up with a side of freshly baked bread).
Small plates are split into fish, meat and veggie options (with vegan and gluten-free dishes available). Highlights include grilled langoustines in hot ‘nduja butter; mussels in Greek saganaki sauce; Moroccan lemon chicken tagine with olive, spinach & pomegranate couscous, and tarragon & truffle wild mushroom crostini with black olive tapenade.
Afterwards, why not treat yourself to a sweet bite such as hazelnut tiramisu or chocolate & cherry brownie with pistachio ice cream?
Or if you fancy combining shopping with a spot of brunch, then highlights include apple ricotta pancakes with bacon butter or baked eggs in a chorizo & chickpea shakshuka.
