First time visiting Agora after hearing good things. Great customer service, great food, sensibly priced and overall a lovely meal. We will most certainly be back.

Agora was recommended to us by our hotel and we just managed to get a table without a reservation on a Friday night as we were early. We're not familiar with Turkish/Greek food so it was a bit of a step into the unknown, but a very delicious one! Everything was yummy (whatever it was) and the flatbread was stunning.... More

Great night , fabulous host. We were visiting our daughters & as we live abroad we were looking for something a little different and we weren't disappointed. The food & the atmosphere reminded us of holidays in Greece many years ago. The food was plentiful & of a good quality , the Turkish flat bread was amazing . Well worth... More

The menu is very much what you would expect from a Turkish/Greek restaurant. I've been going here for years and it hardly ever changes. Not that that matters because there is plenty of choice and everything is delicious. Nothing fancy, just fresh tasty food, generous portions and a very reasonable price. My only problem with this restaurant is that unless... More

Excellent experience. Turned up without a booking, were accommodated without a problem. The staff were friendly, informative and knowledgeable. If we were locals, we would make Agora one of our destinations. We had the Mezze selection as we did not require a full dinner. The servings were generous, of very high quality and met our needs. Food cooked to order,... More

The variety of dishes using lamb and chicken was extensive and our party of 5 made excellent choices, from the starter menu and mains, too. The food was beautifully presented,very well cooked and deliciously tasty. Service was excellent from arrival, to placing the order and being served with the freshly cooked food. There was no long wait and the little... More

Not sure 'Catinator' went to the same Agora as the rest of us! Happened upon this restaurant whilst ambling along after a 5 hour drive. Absolutely beautiful food. Served by a lovely lady who had time for us. We had the hummous with lamb served with bread and the halloumi cheese. Both lovely. We followed it with a lamb shank... More

Really varied choice available, well described for the uninitiated and utterly yummy when served. It's small, friendly and comfy. Good portions - enough but not too mush - and excellent value. We hadn't booked but I think it's probably wise, if you can, to do so. I think if we were local it would become a regular haunt. . .
