Greek meze is something of a ritual – served in carefully planned stages to tantalize the senses. The variety of flavors and textures makes Greek meze an unbeatable gastronomic experience. This popular Greek tradition is a perfect solution for parties and surprisingly easy to recreate with some basics.
Greek meze usually starts with delicious appetizers that tantalize your taste buds. The perfect starters to whip up include traditional Greek salads paired with olives, cheese and pickles.
Alongside these, Greek meze includes various dips such as tzatziki made from Greek yogurt, cucumber and garlic for an extra kick. There is also hummus, melitzanosalata (eggplant dip), taramasalata (fish roe dip) and many other delicious Greek dips and spreads to enrich and deepen the flavors of your homemade meze, accompanied by pita bread slices or chips.
Tip: If you’re looking for a creative twist in your Greek feast at home, try incorporating Greek classics such as fava bean dip with roasted peppers, melted cheese topped tomatoes sprinkled with herbs, or stuffed grape leaves. All together they make a wonderful combination of traditional and contemporary Greek dishes which can transport you to the Greek isles from your very own kitchen!
For delicious hot meze options, consider Greek-style roasted or lemon chicken; gouvetsi, Greek-style baked lamb in a tomato and onion sauce; soutzoukakia, Greek meatballs enjoyed with a zesty Tomato Sauce; and the ever-popular gemista, baked vegetables stuffed with seasoned rice and ground beef.
For an extra Mediterranean flavor, quickly fried seafood like shrimp or calamari are great options served hot.
Whatever your selection of Greek meze ingredients is back home, you’ll enjoy fantastic flavors as long as you include some classic Greek staples with fresh vegetables, herbs and spices, cheese and meat. Delicious food awaits!
Pro tip: Craving a good Mediterranean grill? Freshly grilled halloumi is part of nearly every meze in Cyprus. It pairs brilliantly with some grilled sausage, bacon and zucchini or spinach scrambled egg. It is excellent with grilled vegetables.
For a delicious vegetarian souvlaki line a skewer with halloumi cubes between veggies such as mushrooms, peppers and onions and throw on a BBQ grill. Serve with hummus and tzatziki.

The best meze is served as a mix of hot and cold dishes and bites. However, if you are looking for a no-fuss Greek-style meze, cold meze is easier to plan and prepare.
Greek cuisine packs a flavorful punch with diverse cold meze fares that includes starter dishes like Greek salad, dips like tzatziki, and a range of charcuterie board cheese and cold cuts.
However, home cooked Greek meals offer an equally exciting array of cold meze options that could be considered to create the Greek experience right in your own home.
Accent dishes like fried zucchini, dolmades and other Greek delicacies are positively delicious hot or cold!
Cold meze Ideas: Think vegetables such as Greek beet salad, stuffed eggplants and Greek mushrooms along with creamy taramasalata dip and crunchy calamari rings on the side. Or go for Greek feta cheese cubes accompanied by Kalamata olives and the freshness of seafood options like tender octopus chunks in our GFG Mediterranean Medley with Octopus mixed together in Greek salads – there’s no shortage of creative chill combinations to choose from!
Tip: Spanakopita, Greek spinach & feta pie and other savory pastry can be served either hot or cold – a great option to serve at your party at home.
What do Greeks drink with a meze?
Greek drinks are all about flavor and experience, and Greek culture invites you to savor each sip.
When hosting a Greek meze at home, the best drinks to serve are an array of Greek wines. Greek wine is always a smart choice, emphasizing the unique character of Greek culture while providing a fruity flavor that’s perfect for most appetizers.
Tsipouro or raki are a great pairing for appetizers, or try ouzo for those who dare to take it up a notch.
Specialty Greek liqueurs are a great after-meal for those leaning into true Greek traditions. Enjoy discovering classic Greek flavors like mastiha and mavrodaphne, or explore new favorites that reflect our constantly evolving tastes.
Above all else relish in crafting a unique Greek meze menu that is sure to drive your taste buds wild!
A real Greek meze ends with a dessert and/or a sweet liqueur. Finally, coffee is customarily offered to guests at the very end of the meal. But first – dessert!
Greek meze is a perfect way to entertain guests with an eclectic assortment of desserts, transforming your party into a complete Mediterranean dining experience!
After all, who can say no to Greek sweets like baklava made with Greek honey and a rich filling of nuts & spice, galaktoboureko with creamy phyllo custard and syrup or kataifi shredded dough.
