Good food, feels like home made... great family restaurant, good value for money. Chicken kebab was great, same as the lamb chops, but the Kleftico was certainly not as delicious as you would have it in Greece and Cyprus...

Always our first port of call when in El Gouna. We can report that nothing has changed, food is excellent, staff and service first class, always a great night out, to be repeated again and again

Great restaurant, great food, great staff, great service. Always our first port of call in El Gouna, food is lovely. No where is it mentioned that the chef is Greek.... I think people need to realise that it won't be like what you are served in Greece as the ingrediants are different, however the concept is Greek with the Ouzo... More

Being a bit of a greekofile, I was pleased to see there was a Greek restaurant in El Gouna. On the first visit I tried the beef stifado. This was a black gravy that I think the chef had emptied the salt cellar into and very little in the way of beef. Nothing like a stifado. Having been five times... More

I'd never had Greek food until I'd been here. We went for the mezze and I was hugely impressed! The moussaka was incredible - the tastiest thing I've eaten in a long time. The service was very good and the restaurant was very well presented. Thank you!

This place didn't blow us away, but having said that, nothing was bad about it. We actually visited here as a result of another restaurant being fully booked. We had starters and main course with alcoholic drinks and the overall bill plus tip was about 30 GBP. I had stuffed vine leaves and my partner had garlic bread to start.... More
