Very friendly and welcoming! Food was delicious and plentiful and all was reasonably priced. Belly dancing was lovely and we were all encouraged to get up and dance and the plate smashing was a laugh. Staff were faultless!

Been here a few times before this time and I was slightly disappointed in this visit. First of all when we asked to do the set menu we got told it was ok to which they proceeded to bring out a whole load of starters (not a problem but did have to request 3 times to order our main meals),... More

The food was lovely although they only had 2 desserts available! Plate smashing was fun but no atmosphere on 9th Jan and no belly dancer! I really hope Athens go back to how they were last year and that this is nothing to do with their new restaurant

My friends and I visited on Saturday 2nd January for a friends birthday. We had a great time; the quality of the food was amazing, the team were so friendly and helpful and the restaurant had a great atmosphere throughout. We enjoyed the Greek dancing and plate smashing and generally had an amazing time doing something a little different. We... More

Amazing food! Really friendly service and HUGE portions! Be warned, the Greeks like to indulge so make sure to ask for a doggy bag for the leftovers :). They also will just bring out loads of starters so you may not even need your main.

Stavos and his team treated us exceptionally well on 8/12/15. Set menu which came with more dishes than we could eat. Tasty Greek food and catered for all of us. Fun entertainment with the conga and belly dancing. It's not a 5 star place as in decor etc but if you want to feel a warm Greek welcome and have... More

Had an office Christmas party here and it was as lively as you would want it to be. Different plates of tasty meze served regularly throughout the night (tip: don't eat too much of the starter ones - I had hardly any room for the main course ones when they arrived). Greek music, belly dancing, plate smashing and a great... More

The food was amazing, loads of choice and it was nice we were able to try everything. The Greek dancing was so funny and we also did some plate smashing! Later on in the... More

Dropped in on the way to a concert at the Town Hall opposite, the city was busy with the German Christmas market. We were greeted by the friendliest host who guided us to our table and explained what a Greek meal should be. He brought our drinks and a complimentary selection of breads with dips and salad. We allowed him... More
