Don't miss out on the Greek for very very good food. The best prawns without doubt, devine chicken wings done from fresh (not pre-cooked) on the open fire, wood-fired oven baked lamb shoulder and lots more. The owner George is always there. We are impressed , every time we visit. Don't miss out folks.

This restaurant offers authentic greek food done with time and patience. Even the owner adds to the quirkyness. Awesome food, really great service and friendly faces all round. Also did not break the bank!!

We phoned earlier to make a booking. Said it was not necessary. We arrived with work colleagues had to wait a while for them to clean tables. Was not very busy. Service was poor, waited very long for our food, we never got our entrees. Food was less than average! Will never go back again.

We visited the Greek in March 2014 and we very utterly disgusted and disappointed. I would not recommend it to anyone. We received good service from our waiter, but the food was not edible. We had pita's and it had the most disgusting bitter sauce on it. Can't remember the name exactly, and the meat, they said on the menu... More

The "Greek" restaurant was such a let down. We had checked out the place during the previous afternoon and had seen that it had been awarded a certificate of excellence by Tripadvisor in 2013. The only plus point of our meal was that the service was good. Negatives were that there was no sign of the owner/manager, the restaurant was... More

Firstly everyone says welcome, then you are escorted to your table and you get a huge menu with so many things to choose from, that it's hard to decide. You could easily go for a week every day without being bored. We took an eisbein (typically African like a huge 800g pork belly with a perfectly roasted crust) and a... More

We went to TheGreek after the restaurant next door were full having a pensioners special.....well what a pleasant surprise! Food was great, staff was polite and the atmosphere most relaxing...now we are glad that we ended at TheGreek in stead of next door...more sophisticated and character and will recommend at all times!

Ok, as locals (and from the hospitality industry) we tend judge quite harshly but boy were we pleased with our meals! After a rocky start due to a distracted waitress and the time it took to get our coffee and G&T (and not together) we were feeling kinda down... But soon after that our mains arrived and I believe we... More

We walked in very late after a game of Night Put-Put, and we knew we were pushing our luck with a table, however, our waiter said no problem, he will get us a table and we got our drinks and food in such a good time, pizza is VERY filling! They didn't rush us at all, will def, go back!!

We had fresh delicious food from a wide menu with generous portions and good service, in fact the owner came round and asked how our meal was. I could have eaten here every day.
