Went for the meze to share with lots of lovely Greek/Turkish tastes, all lovely. We had a Kleftiko... read more

The decor is intriguing to say the least with lots of beautiful hanging lights and a totally pointless window overlooking the diners which gave (almost) the impression that you were actually sitting in a town square somewhere in the Med. The staff are welcoming and very entertaining, working the room and... More

Best food in Poole ever. Interesting menu, very very tasty. Molly was lovely, staff were great. Recommend the Chicken Casserole and Moroccan Mint tea, they were heavenly. Go and enjoy!

The restaurant was buzzing when we arrived. Very lively atmosphere and friendly waiting staff. The food was lovely and there was lots of lamb on the menu. We had a vegetarian friend with us and there were different vegetarian choices for him, not just the usual pasta dishes that are normally offered. I have one small criticism though, the chairs...
