Very good food and reasonable inexpensive wine. Service was first class,but did not expect a Turk to be acting as a Greek waiter! To be recommended especially as it was open on Monday

By far the best Greek meal we've had outside of Greece. Good service, reasonably priced & excellent, authentic Greek food.

I have had a takeaway from this place twice all together and I wouldn't get it again. The food is very dry and tasteless, also way too much of a portion size for one person. They didn't tell me on the phone that they only accept cash and don't have a card machine so I had to walk all the... More

Me and my friends visited here on Saturday 23rd whilst on our holiday. The decor and atmosphere is welcoming and we felt like we were abroad! The food is absolutely delicious and the service very friendly and attentive. Overall a great experience and we would visit again without a doubt on our next trip.

Visited based on other reviews . Very pleased . Fantastic authentic food and great atmosphere/decor . Mythos beer great . Very busy so book ahead . Only downside is servers vary . One lady took 25 minutes to bring another drink as she had forgotten . If she receives more training or is replaced this restaurant would get 5 stars... More

Really enjoyed our visit here yesterday. Looks very small but don't be deceived as it has upstairs area. The food we had was cooked very well and in particular my daughter was won over by her Swordfish steak. Can't really say anything negative about our experience.

Booked the restaurant after reading reviews and wanted something different and near to where we were staying, we booked a Saturday night and arrived at 8pm- the restaurant was fully booked and we were taken upstairs and had a sea view window which was lovely. We ordered a bottle of wine and ordered a trio of dips and bread to... More

Omelette and jacket potato ordered all round and we all were happy with speed and quality of ingredients Like many holidays in Greece this was the same , simple... More
