Lovely friendly taverna. We went as a family for a Meze The food was gorgeous. We made the mistake of having plenty of the warm pita bread and homemade dips at the beginning, so by course number 9 we were struggling. The food was so good though we wanted to sample all of it, and we're not disappointed. Definitely going... More

So I took at look at Trip Advisor to see what was close and good. Well we were pleasantly surprised to read some great reviews about the Blue Island and better still only a... More

Saturday evening - we walked in at about 6.45 and were offered a small table which we accepted. As soon as a larger table was available we were moved - which says a lot about how this wonderful little place values customer experience. Food was fantastic - calamari crisp and fresh, dolmades amongst the beat I have ever tasted and... More

It is located on the North side of the main shopping street in Southampton, and a short stroll from the Southampton Park Hotel where I have stayed , waiting for sailing... More

My partner and I went on bank holiday Sunday going off trip advisor reviews as we have never been to the area before. We opted for the set mezze and weren't disappointed. Everything was fresh and tasty and there was so much we couldn't eat it all. The decor is nothing flash but if you want authentic greek food then... More
