Halloumi has been a fast favourite in Glaswegian hearts since opening its doors in 2016. This Greek-Cypriot restaurant dishes up bold, fresh food in a way that feels both traditional and contemporary. There’s something very agreeable about their bustling stylish set-up, with striking patterned tiles, white brick walls and waiters running back and forth to grab dishes from the open kitchen. Plates of bright delicious food set the tone for a menu that encourages communal dining. Their one-page menu of mezze choices mixes things up between seafood, salads, dips and a sizeable chunk of Greek favourites. The latter is where you’ll find the best of the bunch – moussaka, dolmades and keftedes are all reassuringly well done. It comes as no surprise that they have opened a second branch across the river. Their original spot on Hope Street remains unfailingly popular – it’s not unusual to have a time limit on bookings. The quick turnaround means that walk-ins are more than welcome to pull up a stool at their well-stocked bar and sip on a Greek craft beer until a table opens up.
