Greek cuisine is one of our favourites because of its strong focus on fresh ingredients and flavours. Try one of these three Greek restaurants in Singapore for your souvlaki or tzatziki fix today!
This photogenic Mediterranean restaurant was started by the same folks behind furniture and homeware store House of AnLi. Located on the second floor of Tanglin Mall, the bright and airy space is decked out in white and rattan furnishings, with lovely green accents for a tropical touch.
On top of the relaxed resort-like vibes, you can look forward to a wide selection of family-friendly dishes that are great for sharing. Gluten-free and vegan options are also available. Must-try sides include the pita with a trio of dips ($26) and the dolmades ($18), a classic Greek dish of vine leaves stuffed with herbed rice and vegetables.
You can also tuck into traditional family recipes served straight from the oven. There’s soutzoukakia ($28), Greek-style Angus beef meatballs served with orzo pasta in tomato sauce; or, if you prefer something more classically Greek, opt for the Greek seabass ($68). Flown in from the Mediterranean, the fish is roasted with fresh rosemary and thyme and served deboned with lashings of warm extra virgin olive oil. There’s also Maria’s moussaka ($32), an original recipe passed down from the owner’s mum, and a selection of charcoal-grilled items featuring meat from Australia. The souvlaki ($28) is a popular pick, or go all out with your steak of choice.
Visiting with friends? Order a sharing platter so you can try more! Speaking of platters, there’s one with a variety of dessert options too ($26). Or just stick with tried-and-true baklava ($16), divine layers of crispy filo, roasted pistachios and rosewater syrup served with vanilla gelato and thyme honey.
Bakalaki Greek Taverna
This Tiong Bahru gem has warm, unpretentious service that’s only made better with delicious food. Dine alfresco on the patio or in the airy indoor dining room. Start with pita and also some mezze spreads – don’t miss the melitzanosalata agioritiki, or smoky eggplant; or just douse your bread in the amazing imported olive oil. For mains, there are plenty of meat options, from kebabs and gyros to moussaka, a traditional baked casserole of beef, eggplant, potato and béchamel.

Mykonos on the Bay
A backdrop of yachts docked in the bay provides a gorgeous setting from wherever you’re seated at Mykonos. The extensive menu will leave you spoilt for choice, too, from traditional mezzes to freshly grilled seafood and meats. Start with the Mykonos dip platter, then try the pita gyros, with a generous serving of pork belly; or, for fans of lamb, the giaourtlou features rich, spiced meat, beautifully offset by Greek yoghurt.
