Held office Xmas party here and it was very good overall, was very busy but they seemed to keep on top the the service. Food pretty good and would recommend. Drinks quite pricey as matched the cost of food, but no dearer than similar eateries. Overall well enjoyed and would visit again.

The service is always warm and friendly. If you like good Greek food with atmosphere, this is the place to dine. Always worth a visit especially when Colin Ray's singing there.

The service was slow but that wasn't a... More

Fantastic food here, we've just moved to loughton and would definitely be back for another meal. Was told by the waiter that they have live music, which is a nice touch for a special occasion meal. We will book here again!
