Glasgow’s Best International Restaurant

It’s the April annual that every restaurant in Glasgow or Edinburgh wants to be in. You know, that coveted food bible that is The List Magazine’s Eating and Drinking Guide 24th edition for 2017/2018. And your favourite Greek restaurant only went and got hitlisted as one of the best international (Greek) restaurants in Glasgow!

To say that we’re over the moon is an understatement. Here’s what they said about Halloumi in this year’s guide:

From The List Magazine Halloumi

“Halloumi evokes the primary aesthetic associations of the Mediterranean with that of the current trend in restaurant design – the cyan frontage is the perfect precursor to an interior of marbled, mosaic flooring, exposed white brickwork and low hanging lights that hover just above thick wooden tables.

Launched last summer, the food is characterised by its commitment to the Greek-Cypriot mezze style of eating, meaning dishes are shared and arrive at staggered points throughout the meal. The stress is clearly on bold flavours derived from few ingredients. A large octopus tentacle is a case in point – its outside sweetly charred to just the right side of cooked, served with a simple garnish of smoked paprika and hummus. There’s a quartet of meats available from the grill, with the lamb souvlaki consisting of well-seasoned, speared rump and is a steal at £6.75. Vegetarians are well catered for with the pick spanakopita – a comforting and moreish dish of pastry, spinach and goats’ cheese.

A glance at Halloumi’s menu shows it to be, with a few exceptions, a traditional Greek-Cypriot restaurant, but in its style and energy it is both thoroughly contemporary and charming.”

Thanks to The List Magazine for our snazzy certificate and award, and to all of our Halloumi friends and customers for the continued support and love!
