A new Mediterranean restaurant is set to open in Birmingham next weekend.

Noel’s Bar and Restaurant

Located just beyond the city's love-lock bridge, Noel’s Bar and Restaurant has taken up residence at 22 Waterfront, adjacent to The Cube. W

With the final finishing touches taking place this week, the team is almost ready to open the doors to its 90-cover restaurant complete with private dining room.

The establishment contains an open kitchen as well as a real charcoal grill to cook authentic Mediterranean ingredients, hand-picked cuts of meat and artisan pasta.

Talking ahead of the opening, owner Gjerji Devollaj said: “We can’t wait to introduce Birmingham to Noel’s Bar and Restaurant and show the city everything we have to offer. It's set to be something really special.

"Our waterfront bar and restaurant will show the best of the Mediterranean food, carefully crafted cocktails paired with extraordinary interior design.

"We wanted to take traditional food to the next level, serving it up alongside the best wines, spirits and cocktails, in the most beautiful environment.

"We want to replicate that style, sophistication and quality of the Mediterranean, right here in Birmingham.

"The city has a thriving food and drink scene, and we’re proud to be part of that.


Gjerjii Devollaj has teamed up with Sabi Ukaj to create the concept behind Noel’s Bar and Restaurant. Sabi adds: “Growing up in the Mediterranean, I was brought up with authentic flavours and traditional food which has heavily influenced the menu at Noel’s.

"I have travelled all over Europe discovering many different cuisines and exploring different tastes and flavours.

"The menu at Noel’s Bar and Restaurant celebrates genuine Mediterranean food but taking it to the next level.”

Gjerjii and Sabi worked with Tibbatts Abel, who are behind Brummie restaurants Opheem, Rofuto, St Paul’s House, and Tamatanga.

Noel’s bar and restaurant is opening to the public on Saturday, June 1.
