12 Best Mediterranean Restaurants In Mumbai For 2019

For the longest time when anyone used to mention Mediterranean cuisine, I couldn’t figure out what it meant. And that is because Mediterranean cuisine is actually a really vast term. The Mediterranean region encompasses a lot of countries. So, Egyptian, Levantine, Turkish, Greek and even Italian and French cuisine. The cuisine uses a lot of fresh produce, olive oil and is heavy on meat. We set out to find the best Mediterranean restaurants in Mumbai and this is what we found.

1. The Mykonos At Rocky Star Cocktail Bar, Lower Parel

The brainchild of popular fashion designer, Rocky Star, the Rocky Star Cocktail Bar is a great place to grab food and get your groove on. The food here is really good even though it’s primarily a pub. And as we all know most pubs focus mainly on alcohol as compared to the food. They have a bunch of small plates named after different cities in the world and the food reflects the cuisine of that particular city.

2. Mezze Platter At Opa! Bar & Cafe, Sakinaka

5. Grilled Halloumi At Souk, Colaba

7. Shish Taouk At Rue Du Liban, Fort

One of the best Mediterranean restaurants in South Mumbai, Rue Du Liban’s portions are extremely generous and so is their usage of olive oil. The food tastes as good as it would have had you been dining in Turkey or Lebanon. We love the Shish Taouk here and highly recommend it.

8. Fattoush At Razzberry Rhinoceros, Juhu

You are probably wondering why we were talking about salads but honestly, that is exactly what Mediterranean food is all about. They don’t believe in being pretentious about their food and present it in its rawest form possible. You have got to have it before commenting on it. We pretty much shut up when we had the Fattoush Salad at Razzberry Rhinoceros.

9. Hummus Snackboard At The Little Door, Multiple Outlets

We love the vibe at The Little Door. It’s like you are in an eatery somewhere in Santorini. The restaurant is decorated to look that way and their food is Grecian too. Their Hummus Snackboard, in particular, is our favourite.

The Little Door

Address – Multiple outlets
Cost for 2 –  ₹1,700 for two people (approx.)

10. Minced Lamb At The Daily Bar & Kitchen, Bandra

With amazing gin-based cocktails to go along with the food at The Daily Bar & kitchen, it is our go-to place to chill it on a Friday night. The food is always splendid and so is the ambience.

11. Chicken Shawarma At Cafe Prato, Worli

We would be committing a grave crime if we didn’t mention shawarma. It is a crowd-favourite after all. Carter’s Blue does it really well but we have a soft spot for the one served at Cafe Prato in the Four Seasons.

12. Greek Salad At Tiqri, Santacruz

Fresh watermelon paired with crumbly feta cheese is literally a dream come true. I think it is the best salad out there and Tiqri makes a pretty good one. And their creamy hummus is just splendid!
