This is no ordinary Mediterranean, and it shouldn’t be taken as one. Grilla’s a got every Greek dish you could imagine: Gyro’s Meat on the spit, Greek Salad, Tzatziki, Tahini, Greek Feta and grilled Grilled Halloumi - You name it! They have it!
But what makes this Greek restaurant so unique is the touch of Swedish cheekily thrown in. Why does a Mediterranean restaurant sell Swedish Meatballs and prosecco? Who cares? I know we don’t.
Not a fan of Greek food? No, bother. They’ve got a meat-lovers menu with all the classics. T-bone steak, sausages, lamb chops, pork chops and enough chicken burgers to see you through to next week.
Still not enough? The shocking news is that vegetarians have a home here, with a range of meat-free Mediterranean dishes on offer. Stuffed mushrooms, grilled spicy feta, grilled balsamic and parmesan coated veggies leaven the animal proteins that otherwise dominate.
Found along Hardman Street, at the foot of the Ropewalks and on the cusp of the Georgian Quarter, Grilla is a pared-back eatery that Liverpool’s meat lovers are destined to fall for. Just don’t fall on your own sword in the rush to get there!
