The Med Review - a Mediterranean haven
Updated: Mar 11, 2020
Me and a friend were invited to a menu tasting of The Med Glos, in Gloucester Quays in February. We were immediately impressed with the Meditteranean decor and feel throughout the restaurant. I had been here in previous years when it was under a different management/cuisine and they have definitely upgraded, making it a gem on the quays.
We were greeted by the manager who was very friendly as were all of the staff. We sat down with drinks and were given a full briefing on the type of foods and beer/wine accompaniments which worked well with their menu, alcohol-free versions included.
The food was fantastic, tasty, full of flavours from a range of different cuisines which each complemented each other. The interior was warm, inviting and comfortable, creating a fully immersive experience into a Meditteranean restaurant, it almost felt like we were abroad. The staff and chef really added to the evening and we had a fabulous evening trying a couple of their speciality dishes.
