Stylish restaurant and bar Mezze opened on Friday for their first weekend. Set on the top floor of the Rotunda complex, the split-level bustling contemporary eatery offers impressive seafood dishes, Mediterranean char-grilled meats and kebabs alongside impressive views out across the River Clyde and SEC Hydro.
The kitchen is led by Greek head chef Alex Lioly, modern dishes shine on her menu, as Mezze showcases Greek, Cypriot, Ionian islands and Turkish influences. The dishes – a combination of small and big plates have been created to share and to complement the casual, laid-back atmosphere and vibe of the space.
Sharing specialities include whole char-grilled sea bream, slow-cooked kleftiko lamb shoulder – a real show stopper, slow cooked chicken tava stews, and seafood saganaki stews that are perfect for bringing friends and family together.
There’s a relaxing bar area set under a spectacular Santorini-inspired blue dome feature ceiling that provides a dreamy oasis for cocktails or a quiet glass of wine before or after dinner.
Brought to you by restaurateurs, Kevin Campbell and Toni Carbajosa – who own Greek-Cypriot restaurant Halloumi and Rioja tapas and cocktail bar in Finnieston, the new restaurant will offer 20% off as an introductory welcome to diners.
Campbell says: “Modern Greek and Mediterranean cuisine is making waves at the moment and we wanted to create a dining space that pays homage to our chefs heritage. Alex and her team have created dishes that reinvent what they ate growing up in with a twist and the results are modern and fresh.”
