We were strangers to the area and looking for somewhere decent to have an early meal. Fortunately we were just outside Agora's when they opened - which proved to be a stroke of luck. We had been viewing other eateries in the area but could almost hear the "ping" of the microwaves in most. Agora on the other hand clearly... More

Upon arrival we were met with a warm beaming smile from the very bubbly Rose who looked after us extremely well throughout our visit. We ordered several different starters to share between the four of us which we did have to wait a little while for, but it was a busy Saturday night and we were more than happy drinking... More

Great food, huge portions, friendly staff, reasonable prices, great decor. Need I say more? Be careful when ordering as a large appetite will be necessary.

We popped into Agora on the off chance for dinner... The place was really busy but there was a table for us. The pickled veg and olives were complimentary and not the best... I think they'd just been drizzled in juice instead of soaked. But the rest of the food was amazing. Light and full of flavour. And big portions... More

Just off the main shopping centre, near Debenhams, we were pleased to have found a Turkish/Greek restaurant in Portsmouth near to where we were staying. It even had tripadvisor stickers in the window! It was a nice atmosphere, though a little cramped for space, and had paintings for sale on the walls. The lights were beautiful and authentically mediterranean. The... More

On Friday evening my Uncles came down to treat me to a meal as I don't see them very often. They picked the Agora which sounded very nice and had menus available on there website beforehand which was a big plus. Arriving at the restaurant we were met by a very friendly waiter who got us seated and settled with... More

We visited The Agora again as we enjoyed our last visit so much. Since then I have become a vegan but this didn't matter at all. The menu was explained to me thoroughly and I was welcomed given excellent service. My group of 5 friends also really enjoyed their meals. We shared a mezze and all tried different dishes for...

After finishing work late on Sunday night we decided we wanted to eat out. Amazed at how early most places close on a Sunday, and we visited here purely because it was still open. Upon entering we were given a warm and genuine welcome. The place was about half full with a good atmosphere . A hot and cold starter... More
