Came here after we had a poor experience from the almost famous restaurant. We walked in got seated straight away. Waters/ waitess were very friendly. We ordered our meals and came out quickly. Enjoyed the food. Had a very rich pudding then asked for the bill. Overall the food was nice, friendly staff, price was average and we had a... More

Walked in at early evening without booking but were found a table, despite it being very busy already. Tried their dips and the lamb kebabs, partner had the Greek burger. The food was delicious, large portions and... More

We had never been to Greece until last year and fell instantly in love with all aspects of it. We had been shopping all day and decided to stop for something to eat. We went in the Printworks looked at the menus... More

We couldn't be further away from the beautiful islands but sitting in this restaurant all that's missing is the sun on your back and the sound of gentle waves lapping on the beach. The authentic music helps provide the perfect atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

Don't know what people here complaining about, I've been there many times, sometimes it was busy and sometimes empty, ofcourse it depends when you come, that's totally normal... well I can say it's a nice modern restaurant, maybe not the cheapest and the waiting is a bit longer but it's worthy. Souflaki was my favourite and the desserts are really... More

Would highly recommend this place, lovely atmosphere, extremely efficient service and fabulous food. Perfect if you are going to catch a movie and only have a short time to eat, they are more than happy to offer quick friendly service.

My husband had fishcakes to start, which were cooked but only just warm on the inside. I had the calamari, which was a massive portion for a starter. However it was so chewy, I... More
