Take In The Tastes Of Greece
Updated on 25 July 2022

The summer holidays are well and truly here and one of the most popular destinations this year is Greece and the Greek Islands. With crystal clear seas, stunning views, a rich history and amazing food, it is no wonder people are flocking there. 

And as Dubai is a melting pot of different nationalities, home to a host of restaurants catering to every taste and cuisine, you do not have to travel to experience the food of different countries, and Greek food is no different. 

The food from this Mediterranean paradise has become increasingly popular in Dubai with a wide choice of places to try out whether you have a craving for moussaka, souvlaki, taramasalata or gyros. 

Looking for your Greek food fix? Then look no further than your pick of some of Dubai's best options.
