Quaint and cosy

Clearly a place that has seen better days, but the food is decent enough. Average range of food. I know a little about Greek food and it was OK, but not what you would call "truly authentic". Service was poor.

We've eaten here several times over the years. The food was slightly different this year but we were very happy with it. The wine is also very pleasant. Probably only complaint I think we choose the wrong night(Friday) with very loud music, but we managed to finish our meal before it got too loud. We will go again.

Had been here 20 years or so ago, and enjoyed it - but sadly it had gone downhill. What had been a quaint and funky venue had become something of a mess. A rather odd and uneasy atmosphere with rather iffy service, though an older gent who I took to be the owner came out at one point and attempted... More

I have eaten here on several occasions and enjoyed every meal at reasonable prices however I mainly go for the dance. George is an excellent and very friendly host with a lot of enthusiasm while other staff while not exactly unpleasant could be inspired by his warmth. Enjoy the place for what it is, a quirky well lived in restaurant,... More

Excellent starter of three spreads with pita bread. My moussakas and my husband's stafidos were both delicious, well seasoned and authentic tasting with nice sides. Ouzo was over-priced, but wines very good and medium price. A rambling place with all sorts of nice, funny, and strange Greece- related decorations. It was quiet when we were there before the beginning of... More

Unfriendly owner and very expensive food. Check out the other reviews and.. avoid! There are better places around.

Went there with a group of around 18 people whom I met on a course. Asked for separate bills which was agreed but were later on held up for 45 minutes because they claimed that someone hadn't paid. Interestingly, they were not able to say which dish hadn't been paid for but merely claimed that we should pay an arbitrary... More

We booked here for a birthday celebration and we were looking forward to some authentic Greek food.. From the moment we walked in I feared the worst grubby décor dusty fittings above, and dirty glasses on the table.The larger I ordered was flat and the meal consisted of soggy salad frozen chips and two pieces of meat in a sloppy...

The place was dirty. My wife found some blue kitchen roll in her meal and I found a hair. The beer and cola were flat and the quality of the food was not up to par. Avoid like the plague.

First came across this some many years ago but have not had the opportunity to re-visit. Having done so, I will not leave it as long to my next visit. This is Greek food at it's most authentic and the best for many miles around. Vasilis Politis the owner/chef is at his best when cooking, serving, and socialising; obviously he... More
