I booked Blue Island Greek Taverna for my work leaving do. We had group of 15 people. The variety of dishes (vegetarian and meaty) were served. Great quality and tasty food. Also quite a lot of food, so we asked for some of the left over food to be placed in the tubs, for us to enjoy later! Great value... More

On arrival was made very welcome, the table was decorated with balloons with a nice window seat. The food was fabulous, we had the Meze and every course was something special and tasted great. The management helped to make the birthday memorable by playing Happy Birthday when presenting the cake and enhanced by a bottle of wine on the house.... More

We've been coming regularly now for nearly a year and our experience has been consistently wonderful. This restaurant offers superb home cooked food, cooked by Simon and Christina, and it never fails to delight. We are made to feel truly welcome, whether for a romantic evening out (or with children). This is what eating out should be; an opportunity to... More
