The Med is a Mediterranean restaurant located in Vinings Warehouse in the historic Gloucester Docks. They opened in late 2018 in the waterfront location.
The Med is an oasis of calm in a waterfront area known for its vibrancy. They specialise in the food you will find throughout the warm Mediterranean: from meze to falafel, steaks to beautifully grilled fish and seafood. The menu includes Spanish, Greek, Italian and Lebanese dishes to name a few
My Visit To the Med
As soon as I noticed the sign to the new restaurant opening I have been keen to sample their food. I visited on a quiet evening after a visit to Danter’s Fair at Hempsted Meadows and a pint in Brewhouse and Kitchen.
The restaurant was very clean and comfortable and enjoyed a window seat with nice views of the docs at night. The staff on duty were friendly and provided good service.
For drinks we opted for house white wine “Hardy’s Australian” a note lager was limited to San Miguel on the day.
For Starters, we shared “The Med Platter” which comprised of Muhammara dip, Labneh dip, Hummus, Baba Ghanoush (aubergine & tahini) which was served with pita bread. this was very enjoyable and ended up ordering extra pita to savour the flavours particularly the Muhammara dip.
For the main course I opted for the Lebanese Lamb Chops, these are rubbed with 7 spices then griddled, this was served with couscous, skewered vegetables and a piquant sauce. The flavours were great, meat was tender and filled me up. My guest opted for the Red Snapper a grilled whole fish that tasted very good and seasoned very well.
