This chilled-out taverna specialises in classic Greek dishes — think Mezzes, grilled meat Souvlaki, and lamb chops. If you’re in the mood for a truly Greek experience, we suggest you order a glass of Greek wine or Ouzo, which the staff will help you pick out. If the weather’s good, we recommend booking a table in the courtyard for one of the best al fresco dining experiences in Hong Kong.

Price Range: $$-$$$
Signature Dishes: Sakanaki Platanos, Labneh Cheesecake

Santorini Greek Restaurant — Central

While Central has its fair share of Greek restaurants, if you’re passing by the Middle-levels escalator on Elgin street, you might want to pop into Santorini. The blue-and-white décor exudes Med vibes, as does the relaxed atmosphere of the cosy space. Start out with the Octopus Salad — a great combination of perfectly cooked seafood and great produce — and sample the Tsouchti, the Greek version of spaghetti. If you’re early enough, they have a great value-for-money happy hour.

Range: $$-$$$
Signature Dishes: Octopus Salad, Tsouchti
Location: LG/F 51 Elgin Street, Soho, Central

This Middle Eastern spot has a fair number of dishes with Greek influences on its menu. The Baked Halloumi, with its sprinklings of pomegranate and oregano, has been extremely popular since the restaurant’s opening in 2018. While the focus is usually on non-vegetarian dishes, Francis also places emphasis on vegetarian offerings, and tweaks their menu according to the season. For instance, Sicilian tomatoes grown in February find a place in the salads here during winter. 

Price Range: $$-$$$
Signature Dish: Baked halloumi with pomegranate and oregano
Location: Shop G/F, 4-6 Street Francis Street, Wan Chai

Aziza — Sai Ying Pun

The focus on this restaurant is Egyptian and Mediterranean cuisine, but if you’re in the hankering for Greek food in the Western District, check out the menu at Aziza. Start with the Halloumi Cheese or the Chilli Feta, and move on to the hearty and traditional moussaka. And if you’re in the Sai Ying Pun area in the morning, have a look at Aziza’s breakfast menu, which features a Greek Salad and a Halloumi Cheese Croissant.

Price Range: $$$
Signature Dish: Moussaka, Chili Feta
Location: Shop 1B, G/F, Upton Tower, 345 Des Voeux Road West, Sai Ying Pun

FIGS — Quarry Bay

This Tai Koo restaurant’s expansive indoor and outdoor seating will transport you to the Mediterranean. Which is hardly surprising, as F.I.G.S is an acronym for France, Italy, Greece, and Spain — and this restaurant dedicates its menu to coastal dishes from these Mediterranean countries. If you fancy a gastronomical trip to the Greek islands, then tuck into the Chicken Souvlaki or Greek Style Lamb Chops. You can even sample the Greek Salad if you’d prefer to eat light. 

Price Range: $$$
Signature Dish: Chicken Souvlaki
Location: Shop 601, 6/F, 1111 King’s Road, Taikoo Shing, Quarry Bay

Want to get a taste of Greek food that’s not moussaka or souvlaki? Bushra may be a Middle Eastern restaurant, but the TST joint does venture off the beaten track to include unusual Greek dishes such as a Gemista salad and a Galaktoboureko (dessert of custard baked in filo). If rather have something more traditional, order the Homemade Labneh with a side of bread, or the Greek Style Lamb Shank. Don’t forget to order a drink and enjoy stunning harbour views from the balcony seating area.

Signature Dish: Greek Style Lamb Shank
Location: Shop 6, G/F & Shop 16, UG/F, Tsim Sha Tsui Centre, 66 Mody Road, Tsim Sha Tsui
