I visited Salamis in Peterborough early evening last week and shared a meze with friends. It was OK, and certainly a big improvement over what I'd experienced in previous visits (albeit the last time was more than three years ago). The hostess covering front-of-house was charming and efficient. Disappointingly, some expected Cypriot staples were missing from the lineup (haloumi, lunsa,... More

Well, I think that most of the reviews here state what I'm about to state, its fabulous :) I wanted to take my young lady to the steak house (Monroes) but they were having a refit so I suggested the new Russian place just along the road. As we walked past Salamis I remembered that one cold Sunday evening around... More

Typical greek taverna ...... in central Peterborough!! Once you walk through the doors it's hard to imagine that you are not on a greek island somewhere. The whole feel of the place is lovely. We had Meze ... £18.50 each. Stacks of food, absolutely delicious. This will not be our only visit, we look forward to returning again, and again!... More

Unassuming by its small frontage, there is a huge welcome inside this very attractive eating house.The food is authentic and plenty of it, If you opt for the Mezze, you need a good appetite as when you think you are nearing the end, you are only just beginning, nice for a celebration, nothing is too much trouble for mine hoste...

Just entering Salamis transported me back 40 years - just like I remember Greek tavernas used to be. On a Monday night it was quiet, very quiet, which was a shame as it is good value and good food. I had taramasalata and a lamb kebab, both of which were good, though perhaps a spicy sauce could have been served... More

My wife & I have been to Salamis Taverna so many times over the past 20 years & last time Andreas was only offering Polish beer. As I like lager (lots of foreign ones included) It put me off. Why would I go to a Greek restaurant & drink polish beer ?? This weekend we really fancied Greek food again... More

My partner and I visited here last night for dinner. We initially wanted the meze, but I'm not a big fish fan, so the waiter recommended we pick our own. The starters were fantastic. Our main was not quite so stand out, but still nice. What really makes the place is the friendly ambience. It feels authentic. I didn't even... More
