My first visit here, quite simply because our dining options in Hampton St are so varied. Jenny looked after my group of six exceptionally well. A Greek beer, Greek red wine, superb dips for entree and a huge shared meat platter for a sub-group of we three. Flavoursome sausages, rissoles, kebabs, and shaved lamb absolutely filled us with Greek food.... More

Always great food at Pelagos. Very wholesome whether meat or fish. We always enjoy the food. The service was a little on the slow side as our friends (they were looking at holding a birthday function) waited an hour. When there are big groups present in either the front or back the noise is a bit deafening. Pick a night... More

I came with a party of 15 and as soon as we walked into the restaurant I knew something was wrong as we were squashed into the back corner of the restaurant. There were 4 different waitresses that kept coming to serve us for drinks as well. One waitress is enough we don't need that many people coming to our... More

The food at this restaurant was delicious! We had a banquet and the only problem was we were so full, and still more food kept coming, and it was all so nice, we could not resist. The service was good, and a lively atmosphere made for a fun and happy night. I would recommend it!

Couldn't agree more with Bazza. We were the other couple. Horrible over cooked and relatively pricey food obviously pre-cooked several hours earlier by a cook and not a chef. I doubt if they even understand the difference. Besides the arrogant waiter, when the obnoxious owner finally made an appearance to see us out when we were leaving and asked us... More

This restaurant can be summed up in one word. Terrible. The food was over cooked, over priced for what they served and the attitude of the staff was one of complete arrogance on the side of being totally obnoxious. We were a party of four and 2 of us ordered the lamb souvlaki. From the texture and colour it was... More

We had an anniversary dinner on Saturday night for around 30 people which was a "banquet" ( was far from a banquet! ). As i have ceoliac disease I am very cautious about eating out. I called on the Wednesday before and spoke to Chris about what I could and couldn't eat. He assured me that there were gluten free,... More
