Inside a little tired looking, but nice outside space in good weather. Owner very friendly and obliging. A little on the expensive side for the portion size and lack of 'flare' in the food and presentation. A bit confusing as to what cuisine this restaurant is as although thinking it was Greek food the menu did not reflect this and... More

just had my ?th birthday party here and had a fabulous evening. Great food, and as a lover of Greek food was delighted to find it in this corner of Hexham. Mezze really worth sampling. Service spot on. Cannot praise owners enough - my birthday fell on a non-opening night, but no problem they were happy to open just for... More

My fiance and I are both lovers of Greek food and so we were delighted to find such a wonderful little restaurant when looking for a lunch spot in the heart of Hexham. Tzatziki and hummus served with warm pitta were exceptional, as were the dolmades, warm parcels of vine leaves stuffed with savoury perfectly seasoned rice and served with... More

Had a mezze style meal with a latte and welcomed by a waiter with a great smile. The homemade houmous and tzakiki is to die for combined with warm pitta. Had a slice of the known lemon meringue pie that lives up to its reputation. Will come again

Wonderfully friendly welcome, fresh ingredients and prompt service. Hidden away just off the main market place opposite the Gaol. Sunny terrace and sheltered.

Sadly, the only good thing about this cafe was the friendly reception. Can't fault that. Hence two stars. But the beef stew was truly awful, very strange taste of sweet spice, meat very tough in a grainy onion gravy, served with yellow rice on a utilitarian white plate. That was all. No veg, salad or garnish. It reminded us of... More

This place is such a friendly, value for money restaurant. From all the homely things on the walls, etc, to the warm smiles from the owners - you are made to feel that nothing is a problem. They are genuinely pleased when you enjoy the meal they have cooked for you. Such a refreshing change from all those snobby restaurants... More

We fancied a nice meal out so I looked at Trip Advisor for Hexham restaurants. I saw the reviews For Bunters and Athenas and as we hadn't eaten Greek food for a while, we decided to go. I'm so glad we did . The restaurant itself was utterly charming with Greek Music playing in the background. The owners, John and... More
