We loved this place. Very nice and fresh Greek food. The chef had a quirky sense of humor, with the dishes there were little birds and animals carved from potatoes and carrots etc, we thought it was a very nice touch. All food items were great except the beef souvlaki which was a bit tasteless and overpriced. The calamari, cheese... More

good varied menu, very reasonable prices, very helpful staff. we liked it so much we went twice! we had hummus and tzatziki to start with local bread and lamb shank stew on the first visit for less than £30 for two of us with beer and milkshake. The second visit we had home-made pizza. Lovely

All the usual... More

This is followed by moussaka and then a fish platter - squid, prawns, filleted fish and then... More
