You are welcomed by a note on the menu stating that the prices vary according to the attitude of the customer....I should have walked out already then. My daughter's kiddies margarita pizza was r75 although it was far better than the disgusting gyro which I had....the pork was old & dry & although I complained the waitress was not interested....

The welcome and service throughout were very good and sometimes too much. The food was very good as well. The reason for not giving this a four star is that when I asked for... More

We had a good mixed mezze for lunch and a lift back to our apartment from a helpful waiter because it had started raining ! Encouraged,we went back the next night and had some unpretentious lamb dishes with a glass of robust house red.We finished with some excellent baclava and great coffee.Good atmosphere and great staff!!

Lovely friendly restaurant with tasty greek food. The atmosphere is great with a lovely view over the canals. The wine list has just recently been upgraded and some great wine available now. The mezze platters are just so tasty as is the baby chicken

Just had the most magnificent lunch. I had the Mythia (mussels) my one daughter had the ribs, the other had the Greek Shawarma and my wife had a Meze Platter. Everything was delicious and the service fantastic. All this in an awesome setting.

I ordered the octopus for my main meal. When it came I knew I was in trouble when I tried to cut into one of the pieces. It was inedible, unchewable and the sauce excepted, not very tasty. I let my wife and also my friend taste how bad it was. My friend is an ex restauranteur and former food... More

We went here on a Tuesday night in low season and were one of only two tables (as you'd expect). That is normally a recipe for disaster but they produced the most amazing food and the service was great. We had the meze starter to share with calamari, halloumi and hummus. It was fantastic. For mains we had the prawns... More
