10 places to eat... Mediterranean

If you're hankering for houmous or a fan of falafel, Yelp brings you some delicious delights across Glasgow and Edinburgh, thanks to our great Yelpers!

62 Albion Street, Merchant City, Glasgow

"When you walk through the heavy wooden doors and through to the main hall/drinking space you could be forgiven at being taken aback a little by the Mediterranean opulence on display. The faux-fruit baskets and the gilded staircase and various trinkets and statues all around give Arta a strangely grand aura" raves Scott C.

My Big Fat Greek Kitchen
6 Brougham Street, Tollcross, Edinburgh

Laura D found some food to treasure at this Greek eatery: "chicken kebab (or souvlaki) was lovely, really tasty and grilled well. The warm pitta they put on the table to share was a nice touch."

The Bay Tree Café Bistro
403 Great Western Road, Glasgow

Martyn M loves "the lovely wee Mediterranean style cafe that sort of feels like a quiet haven on the hectic Great Western Road!"

Yeni Meze Bar
73 Hanover Street, New Town, Edinburgh

Tom G was overwhelmed by the choice on offer, with "plenty of warm pitta bread to mop up copious amounts of hummus, sliced sausage, aubergine and tomato and other dishes which I can't remember... calamari, chicken, feta and spinach pastries and hot vegetable dishes also!"

393 Great Western Road, Glasgow

Jules M loved the "vibe that's more classy Mediterranean bistro than run-of-the-mill caff" and that "the menu is quite the treat for vegetarians. The sheer number of options for a meatless, fishless lunch made my heart skip a beat!"

Indaba Restaurant
3 Lochrin Terrace, Tollcross, Edinburgh

"I am officially obsessed with this place!" says Michelle P, who "loved the torre de queso; the caramelised onion sauce was a perfect match for the mildly tangy goats cheese, absolute heaven."

Café Hula
321 Hope Street, Glasgow

Sean T's dining partner had the "roasted Mediterranean vegetable sandwich, which was bulging at the seems with toppings! She claims it is one of the best sandwiches she's ever had, so kudos on that one!"

19 Shore Place, Leith, Edinburgh

"I've been here a handful of times and I'm never disappointed," says Sarah L of this "spacious, whitewashed converted dock house covered with tasteful Spanish artefacts." Her top tip is "the Carrillades Ibericas (Iberian black pigs cheeks in red wine)... I always order this."

Cubatas Tapas
108 Elderslie Street, Glasgow

Pammi G loves this new tapas hot spot. "Albondigas con Tomate (Mediterranean home-made meatballs served with tomato sauce) were my favourite dish - the meatballs were meaty, dense and so tasty and the sauce was plentiful and delicious!"

Cafe Andaluz
77B George Street, New Town, Edinburgh

"Sure... order 3-4 tapas... they're small portions right?" suggests James W, on the hunt for a cheeky way to get more on his plate. And no wonder, since "the food is pretty amazing, the service excellent and all for a good price."
