Great Greek!

Lamb cutlets (5) juicy and tender. Whitebait (loads!) crunchy and flavoursome. Terrific menu and specials. Wait staff very helpful. Book or you mightn't get a table.

If you fancy the taste of Greece then try this one. Has everything on the menu that Greek food has to offer the meatballs were good along the whole fish, if you're in the area then this restaurant is worth a visit.

Three times and each time excellent - so tender and tasty. I have been solo, the family were eating their own meals but nothing was a problem. Portions are generous and twice I struggled! I have also had a special request to have an order filled to take home for a sick relative; it was graciously done for me. I... More

I had an amazing time at this terrific little restaurant in Camberwell. The food was plenty, tasty and presented well. The best part of the service was that the water they serve was cold! The owners were very obliging and nothing was a problem.

Ordinary. Slothful service. Bad wine by the glass. Good quality souvlaki, beautifully cooked chicken. Tasty lamb. Ordinary bread for this day and age. Olives that tasted like anchovies. And they won't let you take leftovers home. Seriously not good value unless you had a groupon voucher. Sorry guys you have very classy competition and you need to be taking it... More

I had high expectations of this restaurant, which were not met. The menu is small & had insufficient vegetarian options. There were no vegetarian mains, and no spanakopita or feta cigars or anything of interest. The dips were average, over garlicky & in too small a portion. The only positive was the home made bread, but it really wasn't a... More
