Glasgow's south side is set to welcome a much-loved Greek-Cypriot restaurant next month.

Halloumi will be opening in a former bank on Pollokshaws Road, Strathbungo, creating 30 jobs for the local area.

The opening comes after the success of the original Hope Street location, which was launched in 2016 by Glasgow entrepreneurs, Toni Carbajosa and Kevin Campbell of The Rotunda Group.

The second Halloumi will include a private dining room, event space, bar and large open plan 80-cover restaurant serving up a modern taste of the Mediterranean.

Following their strong stance on limiting plastic usage, sustainability is at the heart of the build, with reclaimed wood, furnishings and energy efficient fittings all being put in place to create a comfortable dining and drinking experience for guests.

Toni Carbajosa, co-owner of Halloumi, explains: “We’ve been searching for a second Halloumi location for a number of months and when we saw this venue we immediately fell in love with the building. It’s a beautiful setting for a restaurant and our team are being very careful to restore and repurpose.

"We hope that everyone will love the location as much as we do, and enjoy relaxing, having a drink or sharing our modern Greek with family and friends at our Southside taverna.”

Lapreet Atwal, general manager of Halloumi said: "Halloumi is the best place to bring your family and friends to get together and we couldn’t think of a more breath-taking second location than opening in this former bank. We continue to be grateful for the support and can’t wait to serve up our sun-soaked dishes in the Southside.”
