This is why we decided to share some of our favourite Mediterranean restaurants in Hornchurch with you today!
Top 4 Mediterranean Restaurants In Hornchurch According To Our Team
Shish Meze Restaurant
First on our list, we have Shish Meze – our favourite Turkish restaurant in Hornchurch. It opened in 2013 and quickly became a popular place for everyone that enjoys Turkish cuisine. Not only do they offer delicious food but the interior is stunning – stylish, elegant, and modern. It really is an incredible place you have to visit!
Aside from the luxurious venue, of course, we also have to focus on their menu and all of the delicious options they have – from starters to main dishes and even traditional desserts we all know and love.
We really enjoy their starters – especially the Kisir (a salad with bulgur, spring onions, dill, parsley, nuts, pomegranate dressing, olive oil, tomato paste), their Hummus, Halloumi and Sucuk Skewers, and their unique Borek (pastry with feta cheese, parsley, onions, spinach)!
And, of course, when it comes to their main dishes, we highly recommend all of their traditional charcoal-grilled kebabs – Adana Kofte, Chicken Shish, Lamb Beyti, and the Chicken and Vegetable Shish!
And if you have left room for dessert, order their Baklava or Sticky Toffee Pudding!

Sortie Grill & Bar
Another favourite Mediterranean restaurant of ours is Sortie Grill & Bar. Just like the previous place on our list, Sortie’s interior is beautiful and super stylish. Visiting this restaurant is an experience – from the friendly staff, the excellent service, and the delicious food to the atmosphere, you will definitely fall in love with Sortie!
Aside from the impressive drinks and wine menu, the food menu is equally as incredible. Starters include both cold and hot options such as Tarama Salad (smoked cod roe, fresh lemon juice, olive oil), Baba Ganoush (mixed aubergine, garlic, tahini, yoghurt, olive oil), Falafel, Spinach Pancake (with mozzarella, goat’s cheese, spinach, cheese, tomato sauce), and Scallops (with pesto)!
Their main dishes include a mixture of Greek, Turkish, and Italian cuisine. They have charcoal-grilled meat, kebabs, pasta, moussaka, incredible salads as well as plenty of vegetarian and vegan options!
We highly recommend all of their Yoghurt Dishes (all of which are served with rice and a salad), their delicious fish and seafood main dishes as well as the Chicken Caesar Salad!
Of course, the desserts are also a combination of traditional Turkish and Italian desserts such as Baklava and Tiramisu!

Istanbul Grill Restaurant
Next on our list is a lovely little restaurant offering delicious Turkish food as well as Greek food. This place is perfect for a quick lunch or dinner with friends. It’s casual and relaxed while the previous places on our list were quite sophisticated.
First on their menu, you will find all of their starters. We highly recommend the Stuffed Vine Leaves with rice, the Russian Salad (potatoes, vegetables, eggs, peas, mayonnaise), the Falafel, and the Spicy Turkish Sausage!
Main dishes include kebabs – Adana Kofte, Chicken Shish, Lamb Beyti (with yoghurt), Iskender (lamb shish, bread, yoghurt, tomato sauce, melted butter, tomatoes, onions, red and green peppers, garlic, tomato paste). A great option is also the Family Special which is only £59.95 and includes Adana Kebab, Lamb Shish, Chicken Beyti, Chicken Shish, Chicken Wings, Ribs, Lamb Chops, rice, and a bottle of wine!

Prezzo Italian Restaurant
And since we can’t make a list of our favourite Mediterranean restaurants without including an Italian place, last on our list is Prezzo – a popular Italian restaurant chain with locations all over London. We love how beautiful the interior is, the fact that they have a gorgeous garden, how friendly the staff is as well as all of their delicious food. Their menu has all of your favourite Italian dishes in there – from pasta and stone-baked pizzas to starters, salads, and other traditional main dishes.
We always either start off with their Meatballs with a tomato sauce, a Caesar Salad, or the Burrata Salad (with mixed leaves, tomatoes, red onions, avocado, burrata, and basil pesto)!
When it comes to their main dishes, we highly recommend all of their pizzas since they are very tasty and well-made as well as their delicious pasta dishes. We really enjoy their Salmon Penne, Penne Arrabbiata, and their Ravioli with Crab, Lobster, and King Prawns!
