Good food, but unwelcoming staff

My family is Greek Cypriot and I wanted to get my partner to try the food of my people. We were on holiday in Bournemouth and saw this place after we googled good restraunts. We pre-booked the table for half 6 but was told we would have to leave by 8:30. This was fair enough, when we arrived there... read more

Myself and my boyfriend visited this restaurant while staying in Poole. The food was tasty enough and they provided a deal which included 2 courses for £14.50 which isn't bad value. Apart from a rather bland beef stew and rice dish my boyfriend had, the starters were tasty (mixed dips with pitta and meatballs) and my moussaka was flavoursome (if... More

I ate here with my friend who is going to be moving to Bournemouth in the Summer as she had eaten here since many years ago and was one of her favourite places to eat. We had the set menu which was quite good value. We both had garlic mushrooms which were served with warm pitta bread and they were... More

We arrived at 8.45pm on Saturday night and it was fully booked, however as we had booked for 9.00pm we were seated straight away. The food was very good as was the service. The thing that let it down for us was it was far to noisy. They had to quite large parties in and they were very loud and... More

My mother suggested going here. She had been before. She is in her 70s - and the lunchtime crowd (full room) was all over 70. The clientele seemed very happy but I thought the food was dreadful. Half the menu is greek, and half is English cafe (jacket potatoes not being a greek classic to my knowledge). I had hommous... More

We had our first date here and return every year. Giving you the taste and feel of a local Cyprus taverna. The meze is gorgous and very authentic and the staff make you feel so welcome and goto extra lengths to ensure you have a memorable evening.

Have walked past this place and always said I would go in - finally did and kicking myself why we didn't do it sooner - 2 course dinner for 14.95 - ordered the most expensive Greek red wine (19.95) and it was gorgeous ( like a really good cab sav ). My moussaka was awesome. Great staff, great atmosphere and... More

Can't recommend this lovely Greek restaurant enough, truly delicious food that was very authentic and the staff were so friendly. First visit here as on holiday in the area but would definitely come back. It's a small place so worth booking during busy periods, they keep the food flowing so you don't get too stuffed between courses (as healthy portion... More
