The only reason I did't give 5 stars was that they had run out of hummus, and while I was happy with the tasty taramasala instead, what kind... More

Me and my husband visited after getting a living social voucher. To start I had the halloumi (delicious) and my husband had the nachos (also delicious...I may have stolen a few). We then had the chicken souvlaki and pork gyros. The portions were huge and really enjoyable. The cocktail menu was extensive with the largest range of mojitos I have... More

We shared the taster menu (mezzo ?) for 2, which was pretty big and very good. Still had room to share a Baclava, which was alas excellent. Friendly service & a good atmosphere.

Visited here with a friend as a precursor to a Greek Island holiday to get us in the mood so to speak. The food and portion sizes were very good, and represented good value, not authentically Greek as the burgers on the menu would indicate but Greek choices were available, however I was a little disappointed there was no lamb...

Visited on Monday evening at around 7pm, it was a lovely evening so we sat outside in the sunshine. Despite it being the Bigg Market it was so sunny I almost felt like I was in Greece....not one of the nicer parts, mind! We shared Nachos to start and they were AMAZING. Probably the best I've had, even better than... More

I ate here early evening midweek when it was fairly busy but the service was excellent, very quick. I had halloumi to start followed by stuffed peppers then orange chocolate tart. Everything was good and authentic. The menu is just as you get in a casual Greek taverna. The food here is great value too, three courses with a drink... More
