Went there with a couple of friends, it was a quiet evening, but it did't stop us from having a good time. Staff was pleasant, the food came out in generous portions- and served with lovely homemade chips. The cost of the evening was surprisingly cheap for the quality we received. Would definitely recommend.

Used to go to the Fat Fig some years ago when it was run by a rather melancholy man ( I liked him but aware he was not everyone's cup of tea). Stopped going as they gradually cut down the number of authentic Greek dishes they served e.g. stuffed vine leaves. Heard recently that it had changed hands and as... More

I go here a lot, I'm completely obsessed with the tzatziki, I won't eat it from anywhere else! Atmosphere is cosy, and the staff are friendly.

Friend had booked 4 of us in for 8pm on a Saturday. First impressions are that it is 'cosy'. Food was very good indeed, had the Marinated Chicken Souvlaki, the Sheftalies (spiced Pork sausage - yum, very nice), whilst friend had the mixed Souvlakia (Pork, Chicken & Sheftalie). Unfortunately the last Moussaka had gone to the birthday girl behind us... More

I took 22 people here on a Saturday night as part of a social group night. From start to finish the service was brilliant, we were there from 8 and they were still serving us at 12.30 and nothing was too much trouble for them. We all had the Mezze, and lost count of the many dishes served between the... More

We came across the Fat Fig by chance and were really glad to have done so. The service from the start was excellent. I think our waiter was called Steve who is a friend of the owner/chef. My wife and I, as well as our 3 year old son were made to feel very welcome. I had the Fat Fig... More

Been here already 4 times and will certainly come back. Lamb meat is delicious and perfectly cooked (can't miss the lamb shoulder!), dips with pita very good, the side salades and potatoes are incredibly tasty! Portions are rich, ingredients genuine and dishes freshly prepared in the open cuisine. The service is friendly, a part from a slightly rude welcome once.... More
