The service here was excellent (we were waited on by two people, the young woman serving us was extremely friendly and knowledgable about the food and wine, and the young man pulled out all the stops for my partners birthday.) but our food was even better. We had the taster menu which is fantastic value for money. We are not... More

This was a Greek restaurant with great international wines and beers. Our waiter offered is advise on what was a best match on the drinks menu with... More

This place is amazing! The atmosphere is great, if you enjoy a fast and loud dining experience. We took the family there, and was amazed at the pace of the place! The food was great, lots of little tasting plates, and crazy fast service!

My grandmother was Greek and this was like going home to her kitchen. I had the Taramasalata, Moussaka and finally the Baklava. The Moussaka could have done with a little less white sauce but was one of the best I have had for a long time. Service was wonderful. A discovery for me was some great Greek wines, I would... More

One of the best dining experience. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the dishes, and the service was excellent. The foods were very good, and reasonable priced. I love the winter salad, one of the best salad I have ever had. Will definitely return.

If you enjoy flavoursome, hearty food this is the place. I've been here twice & had various meals, and both times the food was prepared with expertise. The waiting staff were polite, helpful & well informed on the menu. The venues appearance is contemporary & gives a feeling of Greece.
