Great service and food

We came across this place by chance and went for the set menu, which was delicious and the portions were huge. Service is friendly but quite slow (they did warn us about this when we ordered the menu) so make sure you have time to sit!

We came to this restaurant by default but we're so pleased at the outcome. At first the Staff seemed a bit reticent, but as we relaxed the ambience settled on us. It was busy but relaxed. The food was excellent, a good menu bought back memories of holidays gone bye. We were a party of four might need to book... More

So we actually wanted to eat in a nearby Argentinean but didn't book ahead and we couldn't get a table as there was a huge queue which was obviously testament to good food. So we ended up in here as they did have tables free..... Really expensive for what it is. We had the sharing meze to start and were... More

This place was recommended to us by a local for its great food, reasonable prices, and family friendly staff. It was better than expected on all fronts. To begin they were very accommodating and friendly towards our toddler and the overall atmosphere was very relaxed and charming. My wife and I shared a chefs choice of grilled meats for 2... More

Thank thank you for your warm hospitality to me on what I expected to be a plain and boring sunday. I was eating alone and asked for the bill but instead was invited to sit with the managers friends from Athens. There was rose and shots and dancing to zorba. What an amazing last night in Brugge thank you!

It seems the same as other reviewers we were staying in hotel opposite and thought we would give it a try - so glad we did ! The whole evening was relaxed and delivery of the food was timed to perfection (had Greek table) so a bit of time between courses was needed! So much better than the abundance of... More

We were staying in the opposite hotel - so it was very convenient. Typically greek slow pace- but we weren't in a rush. We were very happy with the quality of the food and would happily use the restaurant again. Nice surroundings and friendly service.

This was not our first choice but since we did not reserve the more famous restaurants, we just went to the first restaurant we saw. But, I think we were lucky, because the food was really good with reasonable price, unfortunately the waiters cannot speak English but the manager of the restaurant was available all the night for taking the...

Went here for dinner with the hubby and walked out because of the horrible service. Did not get to try the food since we sat there and waited for our waiter to acknowledge us for about 15 minutes. All tables around us got served, perhaps we did not because we don't speak French? Decided to skip since there are so... More
