When you feel like some satisfying souvlaki or a cracking kleftiko, St Albans has Greek restaurants for you. At Quandoo, we've gathered together the city's finest tavernas for foodies to browse, and there are some exceptional options. Whether you want to keep it healthy with a fresh feta-filled salad, or go all-in with rich, meaty stews and authentic kebabs, these Greek restaurants let St Albans' gourmet food fans enjoy the finest Mediterranean food whenever they feel the urge. So why not indulge yourself? Fine food is just a click away.
St Albans' Greek restaurants offer a true taverna experience. From their traditionally colourful facades, to bouzouki music in the background and Mythos beer on tap, they manage to conjure up the atmosphere of Athens or the islands in the heart of Hertfordshire. Anastasias is a fine example. A fixture on the local scene since the 70s, it's family-run and still retains its uniquely Hellenic feel, with fairy lights around the walls, retsina and ouzo available by the bottle, and a space for dancing when the meal is over.
But the meal is really the centre of attention at these Greek restaurants in St Albans, so don't get sidetracked by the surroundings. You can choose from pretty much every aspect of Greece's cuisine. If you want lamb souvlaki flavoured with just the right amount of dill, that's easy to arrange. Wholesome seafood skewers with giant prawns and swordfish cater for the most demanding pescetarians, while veggie moussakas manage to keep the richness of the meat-based original, replacing beef with fresh potatoes, carrots, and plenty of herbs. With meat served straight from the grill, and slow-cooked stews available too, the diversity on offer is dazzling.
That amount of choice extends to the tantalising array of meze on offer at St Albans' Greek restaurants as well. If you aren't sure what to have for your main, these venues have the ideal solution. You can match up small plates of sauteed prawns, calamari, spanakopita (spinach pastries), and sausages like pastourma, as well as homemade hummus and taramasalata dips to add some freshness to the mix. Perfect for group dining and for culinary explorers, St Albans' Greek restaurants cater for every visitor in style.
