Maybe it’s the lighter mornings and sunny days creeping in but our thoughts are starting to turn to summer holidays. Specifically, summer holiday dining.
Fresh seafood, a chilled glass of rose, and a crisp feta salad, with whitewashed buildings and the sparkling Med nearby. Heavenly.
If you can’t quite get to the Med right now try the next best thing in Glasgow with today’s Big Deal for a Greek feast at Mezze.
Mediterranean dining in Glasgow
Mezze is a Mediterranean rooftop restaurant on the top floor of the iconic Rotunda complex.
Enjoying spectacular views of the River Clyde, the split level venue has an intimate dining area and a laidback bar area under the Rotunda rooftop where olive trees provide a dreamy oasis for cocktails or a quiet glass of wine.
Sharing is a culinary tradition in the Mediterranean, and the Mezze menu reflects this with dazzling seafood dishes, daily market fresh specials, succulent grilled meats and cooked to order kebabs.
Today’s Big Deal is for a Greek feast at Mezze. There are two options in this deal: option one is for a Greek feast for two people, option two adds a bottle of red, white or rose wine.
The feast starts with pita and Greek dips, including tzatziki, taram and melanzana.
The two people dining then choose between chicken, lamb or mixed souvlaki before choosing three main courses to share.
The main course options include lamb keftedes, courgette and feta fritter, lamb dolma, vegetable dolma, baked feta in foil, chicken tava, fresh mussels, grilled sardines, and calamari.
The diners also pick two side dishes to accompany their menu courses. Side options are Greek potato salad, sauteed Med vegetables, orzo pilaf, hand-cut chips, tabbouleh, feta cheese and olives.
And to finish the feast, those dining on this deal can pick two desserts to share from the mouth watering options, which include baklava, chocolate cake, kormos, yoghurt and honey, warm walnut cake and ice cream.
This Big Deal is available seven days a week, offering plenty of opportunity to tuck in.
Since opening last year, Mezze has gained a stellar reputation from the customers who have dined there. It currently has an average of four stars out of five on TripAdvisor from 70 reviews.
Recent reviews, edited for length, say:
“It’s very rare to find a Greek restaurant in Scotland, and a real pleasure to find a good one in a great location…. We had a range of food from meatballs, kebabs, baked fish and seafood stew, with vine leaves to start and all of it was superb. They also have a great selection of gluten free options too.”
“The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. The last time that we had Greek food was back in Greece and in this restaurant all memories came back. We really enjoyed our evening even though it was busy, everything comes at time and we didn’t wait long. The staff were all friendly and create fantastic atmosphere. We are definitely be back to try more dishes.”
Available seven days a week from noon ‘til 10pm, this Big Deal at Mezze would make an ideal catch up with friends.
A three course mouthwatering feast, it is also an excellent treat for those who love Greek food.
