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

We went there for our office Christmas lunch. Instead of ordering from the menu, we left it to the waiter to provide a "banquet" of tasting plates. They must have read our minds because they kept bringing out dishes that we all wanted and enjoyed and in the right size. Service was excellent and food was great. Was not too... More

We were looked after well and experienced great service. The food was very tasty and we really enjoyed our meal. A drunk and crazy woman came in while we were there and the staff handled her so well, with care, respect and consideration. We were impressed.
