Great restaurant

As it was early on a Monday night we got a table for four quite easily. There was a good selection of starters and main courses and everyone was pleased with their choices. The food was tasty and speedily served. The food and drink was good value for money.

This was one of the greatest meals I have ever had in a restaurant. Be sure to book a reservation, as it is a cozy place and fills up quickly due to its popularity. We went at 9PM with a reservation and the place was packed full. The restaurant features an open kitchen, warm Eastern-European decor, and excellent friendly service.... More

Restaurant were fully booked but a nice member of staff happily gave us a table right next to the stove, which was fab! We were told that they needed the table for 8pm, which still gave us a good couple of hours in the restaurant anyway. Staff were attentive and friendly and food was absolutely beautiful.

This was most definitely the best meal we have eaten in a restaurant in a long time. We had the meze 1. It was fresh, full of flavour and absolutely delicious. We have only just left there and I had to write this review immediately to enthuse about our wonderful evening!

The Agora describes itself as the rather unlikely combination of a Greek /Turkish restaurant . We had based our yacht in Turkey for almost three months earlier this year , followed by a further two months in Greece , so felt we were fairly au fait with Eastern Mediterranean cuisine . It was therefore a real surprise to find something... More

on arrival we were presented with a small plate of 'nibbles' - olives, peppers etc. on eating my first olive I felt a crunch. At first I thought it was a large piece of salt but was actually glass. Mentioned to staff who did apologise. However, this was not mentioned again, not concern about whether I was ok, not explanation... More

As a fan of Turkish food I had high expectations and I was not disappointed. The service was swift and friendly but the highlight was the delicious food. We had a selection of hot and cold Mezza all of which was lovely. It's pretty good value overall especially if you opt for the house wine.

What a wonderful evening! I phoned for a table, no problem. We arrived to big smiles and a busy restaurant that was buzzing. We had a lovely table for two waiting for us with olives and nibbles. For starters we went for the mixed meze, all were delicious and flavoursome. They even brought us extra bread, their bread is warmed... More
