I cannot praise the chef and staff high enough, the food was excellent and the service polite and friendly. I am not normally a huge salad fan, but the side salads were so very fresh and flavourful. Everything was cooked to perfection with beautiful sauces and marinades. We both over ate and were reluctant to leave our plates. We ate... More

Greek dancing and DJ and dancefloor meant we had fun, fun, fun! The owner was a gentleman as were all of his staff, his chef etc. Cannot highly... More

Went here for New Year's Eve. The food was terrible. We got served MOULDY bread as a starter and every single thing was soaked in vinegar. If that wasn't enough, my "chocolate cake" dessert was a slice of chocolate cake CUT IN HALF. Being rationed was unfair as everybody else had a full size slice. Although the atmosphere and music...
