Enjoyable Greek meal

We had lunch here on a Saturday with our 11 year old granddaughter. For a good deal of the time we were the only diners. As a result we had the undivided attention of the waitress! We had a stuffed pepper, a kebab and a stifado, all of which were excellent. The portions were very big and none of... read more

We visited this place, very friendly on arrival, seeing as theres a lot of us we'll have the Meze. No problem> Our experience of a Meze is that you sit down and they bring you about 5 different courses as and when you are ready to go to the next course, not here, they bring it all out at once,...

Visited Saturday evening with family. We were made to feel extremely welcome by the owner and his staff! We were recommended dishes with knowledgeable descriptions. Three of us settled on the meze option which was really generous and a great way to try lots of Greek specialities. The other meals that were ordered from the menu were equally delicious and...

I received a warm welcome from the young waitresses and had an average starter with nice house wine. But I then left, as for the duration I was subjected to the manager reprimanding another waitress, at a table just along from me. This lasted for at least 20mins with him going on and on at her. Apart from when he... More

Approached the restaurant because of the fun decor outside. While looking at the menu outside, a waitress came to the door and stood watching us inches away. Ready to welcome, I suppose but felt intimidating. Ordered food (vegetable mousakka and spaghetti Bolognese). Food arrived quickly...too quickly. Suspect food had been defrosted and reheated, Bolognese was tasteless and mousakka was soggy.... More

We had the meze here - an interesting selection all nicely cooked. Staff were very welcoming and attentive, but not at all pushy. A very pleasant meal
