So pleased I checked Tripadvisor before our day trip to Southampton as we may not have spotted this little independent restaurant. The owner and waitress were very friendly and welcoming and the food was tasty and authentic. The lunch Meze was great value and so large we came away with a doggy bag for our supper. The rustic chairs, lace... More
