Visited previously and were very pleased, visited today, what was there was good but much smaller than previous . Not as much to see, so expensive. Disappointing.

Found this after looking for something different to eat. Yummy. Had the meze, what great value, so much food that never stopped coming out. Really enjoyed it here. Shame it wasn't more busy as it deserves it.

Decor, terrible, no atmosphere, service was OK, food in general was not impressive other than the dessert. I would seriously recommend the Baclava, it was delicious and the restaurants saving grace for me.

This was our second visit to this lovely little Greek restaurant. It's currently situated upstairs above a shop but is moving very soon to a more prominent, ground floor premises nearby on Talbot Street and being renamed Othello's. Well worth a visit if you like Greek food.
