The food is interesting, tasty and well-cooked and presented. The lunch menu is small, but good value. The staff are friendly and helpful, but service can have gaps because one table is served by several staff. We will definitely be back as the food, staff and space make it an enjoyable experience.

This was my first time at Halloumi Southside for the Express Lunch and I will definitely return. Good selection of tapas dishes, the ones we chose were delicious. Staff were very friendly and helpful with our choices. Also very attentive topping up drinks (tap water).

Love the food it’s great but always wonder why an early table with no one else there and anyone coming in is all sat on top of each other as the tables are so close today. Please spread us out!

Lovely greeting by staff, food excellent , only criticism would be the spills on the stairs and generally downstairs looking untidy and needing a sweep and store cupboards doors closed.

We’ve been planning to try this fairly local restaurant since we heard it had opened, and we were lucky enough to get vouchers for last Christmas. Access is great, and we managed to get parked about 100m away. We initially thought the music was loud - but it grew on us during the meal, and background were at a pleasant level. We were noticed by waiting staff promptly, and made to feel welcome. The menu choices were interesting, and we both like the meze approach to dining. The food arrived reasonably quickly, and the taste and quality was really good, and compared well to anything we’ve tasted outside Greece. We certainly intend to return for lunch in the near future.

Food, decor,service all good however the noise level is way to high and would stop me going back
I did ask if the music could be turned down slightly and they did but within a short time it was back to very loud. There were four at our table and we could hardly have a conversation such a shame as it is a really nice restaurant.

Lovely bright decor, spacious and accessible . Food very tasty but not as traditionally Greek as I expected! Staff a bit slow to respond when wanting to pay although very few diners by that time. Some of the music not very appropriate for type of restaurant .
On the whole a pleasant lunch experience!

Very disappointing this time. I have eaten here a few times and enjoyed it but this was below the usual standard. The Moussaka tasted like it had quite a lot of sugar added and the veg burger was on a cheap white bun with inedible salad at the side. Overall very expensive - £60 for 2 people - 2 tapas style dishes each and a bottle of house Greek wine ( which was good). Happy Haloumi is in the south side but there are so many great places opening up I’m not sure I would rush back.

Service was excellent but food was average. Meat dishes were chewy and not tender. Tahini was not like any tahini i've ever tasted. Saving grace were the hummous and halloumi fries.

Food was quite good but overpriced. Cheapest wine was £19... a bit expensive. Waiters and waitresses need to look around the room more to see if they are needed. The music is far too loud...how about looking at the average age of the customers, not everyone likes what the staff like.Some of the food is not authentic Greek food

Thank you for your review. We take a lot of time selecting the wines on our wine list, all of which are great value. We apologise if you didn't feel we were attentive enough and this is something we have addressed. Halloumi is a fun, vibrant restaurant and we like to enhance the atmosphere through the music that we play, we have playlists made up, the music is not chosen by the staff. Our head chefs here are all Greek, they choose what food is on the menu. We hope you will try us again soon.

Absolutely love Halloumi south side. The food is always lovely and it’s the only place I make sure to save room for dessert (the rice pudding is magic). The music is a little loud but I feel as if I’ve only noticed it a couple of times so that could depend on where you’re sitting. All in all I would say it’s a great place and I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

Great menu, food was generally really good. Only criticism is that the zucchini fritti were not really seasoned and so were a little bland. However, everything else was delicious, especially the Greek mac and cheese. Lovely Greek white wine and overall good value. Great location in the south side and decor of the restaurant was lovely, will definitely return.

All the food was great. The staff were friendly. The music was far too loud making it impossible to have it conversation. The music was unpleasant rock/house and not in keeping with the Restaurant. They should play Greek or other world music or classical and it should be in the background not deafening!!!!!!!

An outstanding meal - proper Greek food served properly by excellent staff. Particularly enjoyed the pork gyros and feta tempura - washed down with superb Greek craft ale (Septum) and a cheeky wee tsiporous digestif to round off.

My only criticism was that the music was a bit too loud, but then I am an old fuddy duddy so others might well be less bothered.

All in all, I cannot recommend Halloumi South Side enough.
