We’ve been to halloumi lots and always enjoyed it. However this is the second time that we’ve had something with filo pastry that has been completely soggy right through. I also felt that the tzatziki was lacking in flavour compared to usual. Service was flawless.

On a busy Saturday night we had to vacate our seats for a later cover, which is fine of course. Food came in good time, was very well made and staff were very nice. Only issue was being at a table next to the door which was cold.

We always love the food at Halloumi and again weren't disappointed this time! It's ten out of ten - although ever so slightly overpriced. The only thing that we'd have to criticise is that the restaurant has relatively small tables for a mezze place. We were two people, ordered six mezze dishes, some bread and hummus, an alcoholic drink and a glass of water each - and it was very crammed. So crammed that cutlery fell off the table and there was no room for my girlfriend's very small clutch handbag that she needed to put somewhere.
So whilst we can't fault the food, drinks and service - slightly bigger tables would make for a much more relaxed dining experience!

One of the best restaurants I have been to in a long time. The food was exceptional, and I ate way more than I should have! The standard of customer service was excellent. Even though the staff were clearly very busy, they were still super helpful, friendly, and polite. I love the design and atmosphere of the restaurant. It was such a fun and cool vibe. The cost of the meal was very reasonable and I would say for the excellent quality of the food, it was very good value. Thanks so much! :)

Visited my much loved Halloumi on a visit to Glasgow. I always love the food there, but had a very unfortunate experience this time.

The jar holding my tzatziki had a chip in the side, it turns out the glass was in my dip, I ended up with the glass in my mouth and a cut tongue. Luckily, I realised before swallowing the glass. The dip was replaced, but the server was not very apologetic. No one checked I was okay and there was no reduction on the bill, which I would have appreciated as a gesture.

We were then rushed away from our table and out the door after being there only just over an hour to let another group have our table. We barely had a chance to finish our drinks.

A very disappointing visit.

Great Greek restaurant. Consistently brilliant food. Could do with adding some more vegetable and side dishes (like rice). Service was a little indifferent on this occasion but that is not the norm.

My friend and I really enjoyed the food and the cocktails were also tasty.
The staff seemed relaxed and the service was generally good but they didn't bring a dessert menu for us which is probably just as well as we were stuffed.

First thing we were greeted with is we need the table back by 8.30, our table was booked for 7.30. Noise levels were unbearable. Food all came at once, so got cold very quickly, the octopus was tough. We had dined here several time before for lunch, which was very enjoyable. We will not return in the evening, a carry out would have been more relaxing.

I really do want to like this place restaurant but.... The food is very over priced and just not that great. Watermelon and halloumi salad was slices of chargrilled halloumi laid between slices of ice cold watermelon which was clearly straight out of the fridge. So the cheese was cold before it even got to the table. Not very nice. Scallops are a tiny portion for the price. Tables are very small so if there are 2 of you and you order the number of dishes that they recommend, there just isn’t room to put everything. The last 20 minutes was taken up by the waiter reminding us that we had to leave soon despite lots of tables around us being empty. The whole experience is not worth the money.

Unfortunately, our table was in direct line of the door to the restaurant meaning that whenever the door was opened, a cold air blew in. Some customers even held the door open if there were several of them waiting to be seated. This happened frequently and when we mentioned this to our waiter, we were informed that this complaint had been made before from previous customers at our table. How disappointing that this issue hadn’t been addressed.
Crates of dirty dishes were carried right by our table then downstairs.
Such a shame as the food and service were great and our experience at a different table would have been a very different one.

Great food and friendly service when it was available but took a while to get a drink. I also hate being given a 90-minute slot; no time to relax over a glass of wine, especially after waiting to be served. Prices are decidedly high too. Overall, feels like this place is a victim of its own success as it all felt too frantic and I would not choose it again for a catch up with friends.

Love the food here and the Express lunch menu was ideal. Not a friendly welcome unfortunately - ‘you’ve got the table for an hour and a half’ instead of ‘I hope you enjoy your meal’ No quality check. Lots of carrying on between staff at the pass some of which was physical just didn’t create a great impression.

I would recommend but we were a little early (5 mins) for our table and we were told to stand at the bar. A couple who came in later than us were taken to a table before us and when we spoke to the waitress she told us that she couldn't work the booking system to change us, however, we could perch on the end of someone else's table..! . When finally say at our table about 15 mini after arrival, we ordered food and drinks which were fab. After about an hour and 15 mins our server told us we would have to vacate the table because their next guests were in. I know it's a quick turn around for tables on a Saturday but I just thought it was plain rude.
