Excellent choice

Very welcoming place with a great range of delicious foods.... I recommend the Chicken melt it was delicious. Lovely to hear the Greek music in the background and the service was excellent would certainly be going back there.

This is an independent with helpful staff, a modern clean surroundings, a super choice of food. The food is quality properly cooked and there's plenty of it. The prices are average, but all in all worthwhile and value for money in all respects

Great family run business and overall one of the best restaurants in Plymouth, whether it's for a steak, fish or pasta dish. Also lovely home made desserts... More
