I absolutely adore Greek food. Here are my favourite two restaurants serving Greek food in Edinburgh.
Greek food in Edinburgh
An Edinburgh hidden gem – Ola Kala
We go to Ola Kala for one thing – that perfect holiday accompaniment, gyros, pitta bread wrapped pork & chips (£4). Oh yeah! Try gyros from Ola Kala and you will be instantly transported to Greece. This is not a kebab, it is far far far superior. If you are really hungry, eat your gyros with a side of Kefalotiri Saganaki, grilled Greek cheese (£4) – we each had a gyros and shared a saganaki with a total bill of £12. Ola Kala has a lovely friendly atmosphere, but don’t expect luxury, the food is amazing but this is a cafe, not a restaurant and for a quick and tasty lunch that is perfect! Total Bill for two people: £12.
Try home cooking at – Spitaki
Receiving rave reviews for it simple and tasty greek cooking, Spitaki serves Greek tapas, so order everything to share: we tried a fabulous smokey Aubergine Dip with Chilli (£3) served with two lots of pitta (£2.40) followed up by all the feta: the classic greek salad (£4.50) and the spicy baked variety (£4.50) which is highly recommended, followed up by a selection of juicy kebabs, Chicken Souvlaki (£7.50) and Pork and Beef Keftedes (£7). Try a carafe of Greek wine (not Retsina!) served in a cute little jug and a Fix – B’s favourite of all the Greek beers. Try it if you can find it, the blonde variety is lovely. Total bill £29.
