    What exactly is Greek cuisine?

    As a country, Greece is a fascinating blend of old and new architecture and cultures, and this fusion of Ancient Greek and contemporary Mediterranean influences is also reflected in the country’s cuisine, combining time-tested cooking methods with fresh, Mediterranean produce. Olives, olive oil, lemons, eggplant, zucchini, spinach, fennel, grape leaves, yogurt, garlic, mint, dill, rosemary and tahini are all staples in the Greek diet, as well as fresh fish, seafood and locally-sourced meats. Not only is Greek cuisine delicious, but it’s known for its fresh, healthy and wholesome qualities, making a trip to one of Glasgow’s Greek restaurants a must for foodies.

Food is typically ordered for the table rather than individually, allowing everyone to share and sample a bit of everything, and a good bottle or two of wine is an important component of the typical Greek meal. The perfect choice for a communal feast with friends, you can experience this sociable and relaxed way of dining at one of Glasgow’s best Greek restaurants.
