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

After visiting for a take out menu on a girly weekend back with friends back to our university town, we instead opted to eat in...and I'm so glad we did! The food was incredible, we ordered a selection of starters and the portions were very generous, catering to two vegetarians easily! There was live music on offer, both staff members... More

The menu is reasonably extensive and we opted for a couple of traditional Greek dishes - the vegetarian dish included peppers, which was not as per the description and the moussaka was bang average, at best, and a very skinny portion for the price. Both dishes were clearly microwaved and the more I write this review, the more I realise... More

I am a student in Aberystwyth and whenever my Dad comes to stay he likes to eat there, they sell really good tasty food. The service is friendly and welcoming, the views of the sea are lovely (just make sure you ask to be seated by a window). I have also been on a few dates here too. Just a... More

We had a stunning meal here and were impressed with the menu and choice for dietary requirements. Everything was cooked to perfection and we even went back the following day. Just superb!
