We're in Aberystwyth for a short break. The sun, surprisingly, shone all day and the mood of the town was pretty chilled. In order to keep this chilled mood we decided Greek was the way to go. The restaurant is very close to the beach. From upstairs you get a great view, not quite so good from downstairs. The feel... More

With a holiday home in the area, we always try and find new places to eat out and this looked interesting, particularly with its (generally) favourable reviews on Trippy. Unfortunately, the evening didn't start well as we had booked a window table (nice views over the sea), but we're given a table by the toilets,. The staff didn't appear to... More

If you like Greek Food then this is for you, whether it be for morning coffee with a sweet cake, Lunch or Evening meal you can find something to suit. The friendly owners are Greek so Greek salad, saganaki,moussaka, even old favourites like big beans! are on offer, Enjoy! They'll do takeaway too.

A lot of interesting appetisers and starters for vegetarians - we chose tomato, garlic and chilli dip with flat bread, feta cheese mashed with chilli and feta cheese filo pasty parcels. Great flavours. The mains were a bit more pedestrian being basically a plate full of aubergine, courgette and onion stewed in tomato or fried in oil. Should just doubled... More

The restaurant is located right down on the water. It has got a good atmosphere and the food is great. It's well worth a visit.

We enjoyed a family meal on holiday in Wales, at this lovely restaurant. We were shown upstairs and chose a lovely window table with a great sea view. We ate in the evening and, although children's options were only listed on the lunch menu, the children were able to order from this, and their food in particular was very good... More

I went to this restaurant one Friday evening and was pleasantly surprised. The staff were really pleasant, the decor was comfortable and the options from the menu were vast. The friendly staff were more than happy to 'translate' the dishes so that I could make a good choice toward what I may have liked. The food was very tasty and... More

Been here many times - it's one of the highlights of our visits to Aberystwyth. The food is authentic and delicious, the decor and atmosphere are pleasant and evoke the eastern Med, and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. I hope to visit many more times! :-) (Note: Some meals are gluten free. Please ask them for information. I... More

Rather surprisingly, my partner had never been to a Greek restaurant before. Staff were found to be very friendly; service was quick; and food very enjoyable. Whilst we found what we wanted on the menu ok; have to say I would have liked the choice of a Meze main course, as I have sampled elsewhere. Having looked at some of... More
