My friend and I really enjoyed the food and the cocktails were also tasty.
The staff seemed relaxed and the service was generally good but they didn't bring a dessert menu for us which is probably just as well as we were stuffed.

First thing we were greeted with is we need the table back by 8.30, our table was booked for 7.30. Noise levels were unbearable. Food all came at once, so got cold very quickly, the octopus was tough. We had dined here several time before for lunch, which was very enjoyable. We will not return in the evening, a carry out would have been more relaxing.

I really do want to like this place restaurant but.... The food is very over priced and just not that great. Watermelon and halloumi salad was slices of chargrilled halloumi laid between slices of ice cold watermelon which was clearly straight out of the fridge. So the cheese was cold before it even got to the table. Not very nice. Scallops are a tiny portion for the price. Tables are very small so if there are 2 of you and you order the number of dishes that they recommend, there just isn’t room to put everything. The last 20 minutes was taken up by the waiter reminding us that we had to leave soon despite lots of tables around us being empty. The whole experience is not worth the money.

Unfortunately, our table was in direct line of the door to the restaurant meaning that whenever the door was opened, a cold air blew in. Some customers even held the door open if there were several of them waiting to be seated. This happened frequently and when we mentioned this to our waiter, we were informed that this complaint had been made before from previous customers at our table. How disappointing that this issue hadn’t been addressed.
Crates of dirty dishes were carried right by our table then downstairs.
Such a shame as the food and service were great and our experience at a different table would have been a very different one.

Great food and friendly service when it was available but took a while to get a drink. I also hate being given a 90-minute slot; no time to relax over a glass of wine, especially after waiting to be served. Prices are decidedly high too. Overall, feels like this place is a victim of its own success as it all felt too frantic and I would not choose it again for a catch up with friends.

Love the food here and the Express lunch menu was ideal. Not a friendly welcome unfortunately - ‘you’ve got the table for an hour and a half’ instead of ‘I hope you enjoy your meal’ No quality check. Lots of carrying on between staff at the pass some of which was physical just didn’t create a great impression.

I would recommend but we were a little early (5 mins) for our table and we were told to stand at the bar. A couple who came in later than us were taken to a table before us and when we spoke to the waitress she told us that she couldn't work the booking system to change us, however, we could perch on the end of someone else's table..! . When finally say at our table about 15 mini after arrival, we ordered food and drinks which were fab. After about an hour and 15 mins our server told us we would have to vacate the table because their next guests were in. I know it's a quick turn around for tables on a Saturday but I just thought it was plain rude.

Have been to Halloumi several times and love it! Food is fab, service is great and there's always a really good atmosphere. When we arrived we were advised that the table was required back after 1hr 30mins which was as expected, but we ended up being there for about 2 hrs and were not pressured at all to give the table back even though the restaurant was busy. Really enjoyed our meal and wine, thanks and keep doing what you're doing Halloumi! :-)

The food and service at Halloumi are both great! The food is fresh and very tasty. I like the tapas style portions! The only reason I haven't given the value for money option 5 stars is because it would be nice if the express lunch menu was available at the weekends. Having said that I wouldn't let it put me off going again.

Halloumi is a restaurant that's doing everything right. If you're a student like myself, it's a bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for in excellent food from a diverse menu, served in a very timely manner by friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant itself has a tasteful interior design with a relaxing ambience set by the comfortably dimmed lighting. The music could have been more fitting, but besides that it really was the perfect atmosphere for a relaxing evening meal.

The hardest part of the whole experience was picking from the enticing range of mezze dishes. Everything I had was delicious, and with there still being so much left to try that had caught my interest, I'll be sure to make a return to Halloumi.

We had table reserved at 1.30, nothing in the booking to say it had to be returned by 3 but we were told on arrival. Drinks took 25 mins to arrive. Food lovely and quick service from that point of view. Would go back.

Thank you for the review! The table turn time is noted with priority on your booking confirmation- we work very hard to fill the restaurant efficiently and fairly so we can please as many people as we can! We also note on the email that is you would like longer times to call us prior to the reservation time. I am sorry for any delays you experienced and we will try our best to not let this happen again! Hope to see you here again =)

Went expecting to have set lunch but did not realise that was not available on a Saturday. Menu recommends 3 items each so that was what we ordered. Food was nice but there was far too much of it for us! We would have appreciated the waiting staff perhaps advising to start with 2 each and ordering more if required. Food served quickly but everything came at once so got cold very quickly. My friend and I found it difficult to have a conversation as if was very noisy.

Halloumi
Responded on 1 April 2019

Thank you for the review, I am glad you enjoyed your food! The guidelines which we go by is to order three per person because in our experience most people find that an ideal amount. I am sorry you found it too much, the last thing anyone wants is food going to waste! Hopefully you'll be back to dine with us again soon!

The music was far too loud. We were inundated with the dishes. They didn’t come in an organised fashion and the table was too small for all the dishes which didn’t make the experience enjoyable. It was very clear that it was more important to turn the table around in 1 hour 30 minutes rather than customer satisfaction. There were numerous draughts and overall it was cold.
