If you love Mediterranean food and you are looking for restaurants in Upminster that do offer Mediterranean cuisine that is delicious and well-prepared then look no further because our team is going to share their favourite places in the area with you that you are going to love!

LEFKE Restaurant & Bar

One of our favourite Mediterranean restaurants in Lefke – an incredible place with an impressive menu filled with Turkish food – starters, main dishes, and even delicious desserts you have to try!

Of course, the first thing on their menu is all of the traditional cold and hot starters – from Cacik (cucumber, yoghurt, garlic, mint, dill), Dolma (stuffed vine leaves with rice and herbs) to Sigara Borek (pastry filled with feta), Falafel, and our favourite – Lahmacun (Turkish pizza with spiced minced meat, red pepper, cherry tomatoes, parsley).

Main dishes include traditional charcoal-grilled kebabs such as Adana Kofte, Chicken Shish, Lamb Iskender Kebab, and even Chicken Iskender Kebab all of which are served with a salad.

Golden Skewer Bar & Grill

Next on our list is not really a restaurant but a kebab shop – Golden Skewer Bar & Grill. This, however, shouldn’t stop you from enjoying their delicious Turkish food – we recommend takeaway and home delivery since their dine-in area is pretty small.

They have every traditional starter you can crave – from Hummus and Sigara Boregi to grilled Turkish sausage, Lahmacun (served with a salad), and Calamari with tartar sauce!

When it comes to their main dishes, we highly recommend the Meat Moussaka (layers of minced meat, aubergine, courgette, carrot, onions, green and red peppers, garlic, bechamel sauce, cheese, served with rice and a salad), all of their charcoal-grilled kebabs, the Iskender (Adana Kofte, bread, tomato sauce, melted butter, yoghurt, served with rice and a salad), and the Chicken & Lamb Yoghurt!

Osteria Due Amici

Next on our list is a lovely Italian restaurant that we visit very often because of the incredible interior, the delicious traditional food, and the excellent service. The venue has beautiful blue upholstered chairs and wooden tables making it feel both stylish and relaxed!

The menu features the most popular Italian dishes and starters. We always start off either with their Arancini (risotto balls with mushrooms), the Calamari, or the Crab and Prawns Tian (crab meat, prawns, creme fraiche, pickled cucumbers).

Then we move to their delicious main dishes – pizza, incredible pasta options, salads, and other traditional meat and fish main dishes. We have tried everything on their menu – and everything is equally as delicious and fresh so you won’t be disappointed no matter what you decide to order!

And last but not least on our list is another traditional Italian restaurant – Sorrento. But keep in mind that they do not serve pizza – they are focused on pasta dishes!

Starters include traditional meatballs with tomato sauce and ciabatta, Calamari with tartar sauce and Bruschetta.

When it comes to their main dishes, we highly recommend their pasta! We love the Linguine Marinara, the Tortelli Napoli (with spinach, ricotta, and tomato sauce), and the Fettuccine Bolognese!

We also really enjoy the Lamb Al Rosmarino (lamb cutlets, garlic and rosemary sauce, potatoes, seasonal vegetables) and the Pollo Cubetti (chicken breast cubes, onions, mushrooms, cream and white wine sauce, potatoes, vegetables).

For dessert, definitely get the Profiteroles with chocolate sauce or the traditional Tiramisu!
