Looking for meat on the spit in central Liverpool? Grilla’s the go, a bar and grillhouse restaurant that focuses its pointy skewers on the Mediterranean for inspiration. Found along Hardman Street, at the foot of the Ropewalks and on the cusp of the Georgian Quarter, Grilla is a pared-back eatery that Liverpool’s meat lovers are destined to fall for. Just don’t fall on your own sword in the rush to get there. The menu at Grilla is packed with meaty goodness, with the Mix Grilla for two topping the list and offering a variety of house specialties like lamb and pork and the exotic pork exohiko, pork loin stuffed with bacon halloumi and green peppers. Shocking news is that vegetarians have a home here, with a range of meat-free Mediterranean dishes on offer, too.Stuffed mushrooms, grilled spicy feta, grilled balsamic and parmesan coated veggies leaven the animal proteins that otherwise dominate.

Both the service and food are excellent, I have been to Grilla a number of times and also taken friends, who intern have recommended Grilla to there family and friends.
Beautiful food, great atmosphere highly recommend. Will continue to visit and staff are very attentive. Looking forward to another visit and going to try taking away too 😊
The food here was fantastic and great quality. The deco has a really nice clean Mediterranean feel to it and you can see a lot of effort has gone in to making your experience at Grilla a good one. The staff were on point and happy.
Fabulous gem of a restaurant. Wonderful calm interior, friendly staff and amazing food. Very reasonable and complimentary chocolate brownies to die for. Most definately worth a visit!!!
We visited Grilla not long after it first opened and we knew then that we had found a hidden gem. This is our second visit and I am happy to report nothing has changed since our first visit, we was warmly welcomed and seated quickly, given enough time to study the menu and our drinks and food were served promptly after being ordered. The food was wonderful, massive portions of meat, meat and more meat! Complimentary desert was offered once again, which is a nice touch. We will definately be visiting again and won't hesitate to recommend to friends and family. Keep it up Grilla and don't change whats made you a great place to visit!
First time visit to Grilla, after checking out on the internet for eating places around Hope Street. We eat regularly in Liverpool and try to find new places each time and Grilla was a hidden jewel we found. Food was excellent, the drinks were good value and the staff were polite and helpful; also nice clean toilets. We will revisit Grilla and pass on good reports to our friends. Thank you for a good evening experience. SHS/LHS
Amazing! Beautiful décor, great service, delicious food. Had such a lovely evening with friends and family for my birthday. They even brought us complimentary brownies for my birthday with a candle on and put Happy birthday music on for me. Was such a lovely evening. They couldn't do enough for us. We went to Grilla on my brother's recommendation as he had had such a lovely meal the previous week, now my Dad is arranging for him and his friends to go there for a meal in a few weeks. Its lovely it really is.
Visited Grilla for a bite to eat before a show at the Philharmonic and we couldn't have been happier. Light and airy surroundings, a cool vibe and great value for money put our evening on a good footing. Go for the Mix Grilla for 2 - a whole pile of amazing bits to nibble on for so little cash it makes you wonder how they make any money on it. Thanks a lot!
The food is excellent and the portions are huge! The staff were helpful and friendly. I shared a Mix Grilla with my friend, and it did not disappoint - the meat was delicious, and cooked perfectly. I had garlic mushrooms for starters, and there was a free dessert. BUT, if you did not want to dine on grilled meat or meat on the spit, your choice of anything else was extremely limited. This is a once-a-year restaurant, not a once-a-week one. Some additional Greek dishes would have been great to see.
It was a fabulous evening. The food and service was fantastic. I have come into work today and recommended Grilla to all my work colleagues and I will be returning Grilla as soon as I can as I have already picked my next meal.
I have been here before, and it was excellent, the service, the food, and the staff, this time I booked online and again excellent service, I had booked a table for 8pm but as we had time to spare I called asking if we could arrive early, which was not a problem, the restaurant was still busy but we where shown our seat straight away, the food again was excellent value for money, the mixed grill on the menus states for 2 people, we asked if they served this for 1 person, which they where very happy to do, I already have a date in mind for my next visit, you will not be disappointed visiting this restaurant, I would like to thank all the staff.
Had a lovely meal before visiting the Philharmonic. We started off sharing a saganaki then we both had chicken souvalaki accompanied with fries and a big bowl of salad. After finishing our meal we were given complimentary chocolate brownies which was a nice touch as you never normally get anything in restaurants over here. We will return for another meal in the near future and I have already recommended Grilla to friends.
First time at Grilla and what a great place, staff were great, food was lovely, Portland draft beer was excellent, all at a good price, we will be making it a regular place enjoy a meal at and with being local the take away option is one we will be trying 😃😃👍🏻
Fabulous restaurant, lovely staff, gorgeous food and cocktails, catered for 6 of us and a baby at a spacious table. There is nothing worse than being crammed in at a table, ours was great. The baby made a mess dropping his food on the floor but the staff were still so friendly and didnt seem to mind the extra work.!! They dont have a dessert menu which is a bit odd but they give you a chocolate brownie with cream for free.!! Will definitely recommend this place to family and friends and we will return.!!
Friendly service, great atmosphere, lovely food and very value for money restaurant. We ordered the Grila mix for 2 and it was more than enough! The Restaurant is modern design and very fancy, ideal even for a very special night. We definitely recommend Grilla.
service is excellent, staff are friendly, polite and happy to help - food choices divine, atmosphere/décor/lighting fantastic... lamb, salad, stuffed mushrooms, all yummy everything super except for the chips... they are a little underdone and tiny bit soggy for me personally. I would prefer them more cooked and crispier; however, these may very well be how they are meant to be so what do I know?! :) Definitely worth a visit - really reasonably priced which means you can come again and again without breaking the bank.
Good quality fresh food, reasonable price , good service, nice atmosphere, would recommend. Mixed Grilla - nom nom very tasty and loads of meat. thanks Grilla team
We've visited Grilla several times before. Food was amazing as ever and staff as friendly as ever, however it was a busy Saturday night and we felt staff struggled a little to cope with number of guests, we had to chase order a couple of times.
If your looking for fab food and service at a very reasonable price, go to Grilla. The restaurant is very busy, but don't be put off, as nobody is left waiting the staff are so attentive. LOVELY
good food particularly the grilled meats. try the gyros without the fries in the wrap. house wine was good and reasonably prices. will likely return as Grilla is an easy walk to the Liverpool Philharmonic.
Great staff and food. We had the early door menu which is great value but there was so much food! The garlic bread starter was delicious and would have done 2 of us. I ordered tsatsiki, which fortunately only came with 2 bread rolls. Personally, I'd prefer pitta bread but we were pretty full after the starters anyway! Hubby had pork and I had meatballs for mains; both lovely. Next time we'll just order a main each so we can do it justice.
Great place to eat, nice decor. Fine for formal/ informal dining. The food is great and the staff very friendly. I was there celebrating my wife's birthday with our two boys (16 and 23). At the end of the meal and without prompting, the waitress brought us 4 individual cakes, one with a candle for the birthday girl! Will definitely be going back at some point.
It would have been a 6 but their was only 1 girl working when we arrived and it was cold inside. She turned the radiator on and coped very well on her own until others arrived. The meal was superb and I will book there again. It was very warm when we left and very packed too. It was very popular and had a great atmosphere, it was an ideal start to a great evening at the Phiharmonic Hall.
Me and my work colleagues booked this restaurant only through recommendation. We had to sit downstairs as upstairs was full but we actually preferred this setting as it was spacious and not too close to other people dining. The food and service was top quality. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious. I opted for Swedish meatballs for my main which was amazing and presentation of dishes really elegant. Waiters were tentative, polite and food and drink served quickly.
Fantastic! Food is incredible, the staff exceed expectations. We also received a complimentary desert, which was excellent. I will be eating at Grilla again, it is now one of my favourite restaurants.
Visited Grilla, with family, for a pre-theatre birthday meal. Restaurant was clean and well decorated. Staff were polite and attentive. Food was delicious and good value. Would definitely recommend and will return.
Went for early bird meal on Friday evening 24th February with a party of seven so expected slightly reduced portions, Boy was i wrong the food was plentiful, tastey and delicious. The Pleasant atmosphere was pleasant and relaxing and the Staff were friendly and helpful throughout. A little gem that i would happily recommend to anybody. I shall definately be returning very soon.
Fantastic food, we had the mixed grill to share and were served a delicious complementary dessert of lemon cake. Relaxing atmosphere, pleasant staff. My only complaint is that we asked the waiter for house wine and he gave us a choice of two. The one we chose was £6 dearer which he failed to tell us! Naughty, we very nearly didn't leave a tip but as the food was so good, we did.
Great food & service, went for a pre-theatre meal, the Grilla mixed Grill was super, plenty to share and reasonable price, wine is also reasonably priced. Would recommend a visit
Once again.... excellent value for money. Nice atmosphere and good food. We had the mixed grilla which was served with salad and fries. Very generous with the portions. The complimentary chocolate cake was very welcomed at the end of our meal. Only a small piece but it was a lovely gesture and very much appreciated.
Grilla served great food within a quiet and peaceful location at a very reasonable price , fast and organised . Staff were wonderful definately visit again .
Excellent food, attentive and helpful staff, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere and decor - altogether a very pleasant experience which I would highly recommend. There was also a great offer on the price of the food (30% discount - we went on a Monday evening), which meant that even the bill was a pleasant surprise!
Great service, meal was delicious, lamb on the spit just fell off the bone, complimentary lemon cake was a nice touch after the meal as well. Really enjoyed my experience at Grilla
Fantastic! Loved the setting, food was delicious, staff were so helpful and friendly and made it a lovely experience. It's very good value for money - you get a lot of food. We all went for the set menu, my only comment would be that we could have ordered the set menu for three and it would have happily fed the five of us!
Fantastic restaurant! Delightful settings, clean and spacious. Food was amazing, loads of it and great value for money. Staff are very welcoming and can't do enough for you. It was our first visit but definitely won't be our last. Grills has got to be one of the best restaurants in Liverpool.
Fantastic food and service as always. .t-bone was amazing!!..wifes lamb chops succulent and the prices are so reasonable ..would recommend Grilla for any occasion 😊
Second time at Grilla. Great value,good food, nice staff, Will be going back. Well done. Always have a good meal. Everything very good. Happy days
Had an absolutely excellent meal here, great service, delicious food. Weren't rushed or pushed to leave quickly despite the place being pretty busy for a Wednesday evening! The lovely chocolate brownie was much appreciated. Will definitely recommend and will be back myself if ever in Liverpool again! Thanks so much.
We had a lovely meal he food was great and the staff were very very nice, I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Thank you Grilla.
The food was beautiful and the service was very professional yet informal. The table had been decorated for us as it was my daughters 16th birthday and it was done very nicely and tastefully between GRILLA and Liverpool Tour Operators. We shall definitely visit again. Thanks very much
A bottle of water given before ordering drinks. Food was delicious and great value for money (we had the Greek Souvlaki on the Wednesday deal). Also loved the unexpected free dessert of a brownie and cream! Very impressed with the service and atmosphere, will definitely be going again!
Food & service was very good. One comment I would make was that with the mixed grilla (which was gorgeous by the way) piling the plate that has the meat on a big pile of chips are put on top which is a bit off putting maybe a separate bowl 4 the chips would be better.
We had a very tasty meal here, excellent value for money, loads of food and very fast service which was great as we were going to the theatre. It was hot food too, important for me, I hate tepid food. Very good and will go again.
Could not fault anything, staff friendly and attentive food fantastic and great value for money, been there three times now once with 9 friends, once with the hubby, and a further visit with the family great atmosphere great location will definitely recommend this restaurant to all.
This was our 1st visit we are already deciding what to order on our next visit it was that good. The service was very good the staff really friendly and the food was delicious and well served all in all excellent , would recommend to everyone.
First time there but would highly recommend it. Lovely decor, friendly and helpful staff who gave you the details of the menu. Food was delicious and plenty of it, good choice of wines and drinks and prices were decent. Would go again without question.
Went there as a recommendation from a friend, the staff were really friendly and welcoming, we ordered a number of starters which were delicious and then the ''mixed grilla" which was probably one of the nicest mixed grills I've ever had, definitely go back
Had a great time at Grilla on Monday night for my partners Birthday - Food was wonderful and the service was great too! Thank you :-)
Very relaxed meal with attentive staff. Food was fresh, different and they were good sized portions. I'd prefer more comfy seats but we borrowed a cushion from the close by bench. Really enjoyable. Well recommended. I would go there again. Thank you.
First visit and wont be last very good value. Staff very helpful.Two of us had grilla for 2 and 3rd member of group had half chicken. All excellent . the grilla for 2 would have fed 3 easily. If you like greek food go and you wont be disapointed
