Nottingham’s food scene is booming at the moment. With several High Street chains shutting their doors in recent times, it’s the independent, creative and unique restaurants, cafes and bars that are flourishing. Additionally, people of Nottingham are after more exotic fare, and instead of the usual Friday night fish and chips or curry in a hurry (although still exceedingly popular), many are exploring the delicious flavours on offer at the Greek restaurants throughout Nottingham. There’s several delightful eateries within the city centre, the Lace Market, Newark-on-Trent and in Arnold as well, so it’s even easier to locate a delicious Greek restaurant in Nottingham, no matter where you are. So take a gander at our little overview, we’ll run you through which Greek restaurants in Nottingham are the best to check out, dishes you have simply got to try, and more.
There’s a guarantee you’ll find all the traditional Greek dishes you’ve heard about or tried before at Nottingham’s excellent Greek restaurants, but, a recent influx of talented, young restaurateurs passionate about food have brought with them new, creative takes on these classics. Picture local kale with pan-fried cod, kefalotiri cheese with smoked duck breast, pomegranate Greek salads, rose-infused souvlaki sliders and haloumi wrapped in bacon drizzled with mango chutney. Still, as we said, for those less inclined to experiment, the Greek restaurants in Nottingham also pay homage to the traditional dishes that made this Mediterranean cuisine famous worldwide. You’ll find classic moussaka, delicious spanakopita, succulent gyros and mezze plates brimming with calamari, haloumi, feta, dolmades and much more at the sensational Nottingham Greek restaurants. Just thinking about it has our tummies grumbling!
Now, we’re about to let you in on a little secret, well, three little secrets to be exact. Here are three of our favourite Greek restaurants in Nottingham, but keep them quiet, they’re hidden local gems. The first, Eviva Taverna, you’ll find in the Lace Market down in Barker Lane, serving up arguably the best mezze plates in the city which you can sample as a five or eight course mezze degustation alongside some souvlakia that is seriously out of this world. Then there’s Emilio’s, a typical family-run spot that seriously know what they’re doing, and boy, do they do it well. This cosy spot in Arnold is best for Greek and Cypriot fusion and their moussaka is second to none, and we also highly advise trying their dolmades. And last, but certainly not least, The Greek Steakhouse are your Greek carvery connoisseurs. These guys are the best Greek restaurant in Nottingham for high quality steaks, gyros and lamb kleftiko, all of which are even better when washed down with an ouzo or two.
The thing with Greek restaurants in Nottingham is that no matter which one you choose you’re guaranteed to be in for a night you’ll not forget in a hurry. It could be the delicious food, it could be the ouzo, it could be the service, but in all honesty, it’s likely to be all of that. Generally speaking, the teams behind Nottingham Greek restaurants are passionate about their culture and their food and so they go above and beyond to make sure your experience is one you’ll remember for years to come.
