Casual dining on excellent Greek food.

Great place to go on a warm evening to eat authentic Greek food at a reasonable price - could have almost been in Greece, apart from the Baklava which is always best in Greece. Casual dining on perfectly cooked Lamb Shank and Souvlaki - delicious!

This place is an icon on the hout bay food scene. Run by Spiro and his amazing staff. Consistently good fare, fresh and hearty. Lovely choices. Attentive service. Ambience in abundance. And a very special children's area with a designated au pair on duty. One of my all time favorites.

Looked forward to have dinner at Spiro's and we were very disappointing. Overpriced menu, average meze dishes, watery lambshank. Bad service, unfriendly waiters. When asking for the bill, we actually asked what was going on that we are receiving such bad service and Norman informed us that it was a busy evening. So that's that for an explanation.

Great authentic greek food and fantastic service. Beautiful atmosphere outside, which even hosts space for the little ones. Would definitely recommended the Meze platter for two.

Great to have a childrens area while you eat in confidence they are safe. Friendly owner and staff. Attentive and helpful. Varied menu even though it is a Greek restaurant. Various areas to sit depending on the type of evening you want to enjoy. Relaxed and informal, or couples dining.

The chips were great (top marks on ChipAdvisor, if it existed :), but I was expecting better from the lamb souvlaki which was tough and chewy. The sardines seemed like they'd been cooked in old oil. Having said that, the food was OK, not terrible. Better than the overly-buttered food from Ocean Basket. Since I see a couple of good... More

Love 'the Greek'. So many "must try" dishes on the menu. The Mezze is a great option to enjoy a selection, but then the ribs, chops, Yiros, mussels, stuffed calamari and lamb shank are all must haves too. Extremely child friendly with dress up costumes, a small play area and great child minders, there is also a very vibey bar... More

I was taken here on the first evening I arrived in Hout Bay - very travel weary & VERY hungry & honestly w/low expectations. Wonderfully surprised to find that I was in an actual Greek cafe w/authentic Greek dishes that were both delicious & filling as well as inexpensive. Atmosphere is extremely chilled as is the service which has much... More
