Good food and plenty of it. You will be full when you leave! The only problem is that the restaurant is rather cold so make sure that you sit close to a heater.

Made a reservation for 7.15 Saturday evening as we were coming from Portsmouth and didn't want to risk not being accommodated at this popular establishment. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table by a lovely young waitress who looked after not only ourselves but the whole restaurant practically single handed very efficiently all evening. It was quiet when... More

The kindness of the staff, alongside the great tasting Mediterranean food, makes this little piece of Greece in Southampton a must visit! Best baklava ever.

Visited blue island with family for dinner on Saturday. Was glad that I booked the table as all 10/12 tables were fully reserved and was also told to bring cash as their card machine wasn't working. Food was just average, not the best Greek we have had to be honest. Greek food is relatively bland, we know. But have had... More
