I noticed the "tripadvisor certificate of excellence" framed on the wall in Spiros, so I decided to come and have a look at the reviews. Clearly, most people have had a far better experience than I had last night. Apart from the disinterested waiter (failed to provide us with enough cutlery or napkins, didn't ask if we had enjoyed our... More

Last week, I went to Spiro's, upon recommendations from a couple of friends. I must say that we came away having had a thoroughly pleasant evening. From the time that we parked just outside the restaurant and were welcomed at the gate, by cheerful staff saying "Welcome to Spiro's", to going inside and giving the name under which we had... More

Great atmosphere and wide variety of Greek dishes on offer. Lively, busy place which many locals frequent. We enjoyed the meze as starters and then went for the lamb as main. All well prepared and presented. Worth a visit

Marvelous mezze. The chicken livers were some of the nicest I've ever had. They have a whole room full of stuff to keep kids entertained and a lady to keep an eye. Highly recommended.

We love Spiro's meze platters - the best way to sample all of the finest Greek treats on offer :) Well worth a visit! Be sure to request a table a little away from the kiddies' area if you don't want to be disturbed by the happy noises.

Good steak, and good stuffed calamari. We also had a great waitress with a sense of humor. Spent the whole afternoon there not feeling rushed out. Kiddie friendly, although we never had any. The most amazing baklava cheese cake, to die for. We will go back. It's casual and laid back, so u can relax. Thx

Our final night in Hout Bay was completed with a tasty well cooked take away meal from Spiros. Tasty, hot and plentiful. Traditionally Greek tasting and looking. Wonderful. Great prices. Generous portions.

We had lunch here after reading good reviews especially with regard to a separate playroom for children.Service was friendly but some small mistakes made.Chicken liver starter was good as was the Kleftico.This is very much a no frills place with a cafe type ambiance rather than a restaurant.The child's playroom has a tv showing cartoons and lots of clothes for...

Very casual Greek style resturant but the service was attentive and the food delicious. Wonderful value for money as well. This restaurant will definitely be included in our next visit to Hout Bay.

We were met by the owner himself and what a joy he was. We felt like we were back in Greece which we have visited many times. The weather was warm so we decided to eat on the patio in the front of the restaurant. On the recommendation of our lovely waiter, we started with meze. The portions were generous... More
