Great Food, Reasonable prices

Spiros is a great Greek restaurant in Hout Bay and is reasonably priced. My 500g rump steak was amazing, tender and flavourful. I have also had the gyros and the souvlakia on separate occasions and loved them too. Our favourite starter is the Tirosalata. What would move this to 5 stars for me is... read more

Ordering a Spiro's salad you'd think there'd be something worth shouting about. Halloumi was barely there, 8 tiny cubes on a heap of lettuce and not much else. The menu stipulated R70 when we received the bill we were charged R95. The waitress had told us that the salad on the menu was a side salad portion.. and we were... More

I had the chicken Souvlaki and my wife the Kleftiko (Lamb shanks, feta, herbs, tomatoes and roast potatoes). Both meals were excellent. We normally share, the chicken was super soft and the lamb shank fell off the bone.

went to a birthday party at Spiro's. Really enjoyed the way the staff went crazy breaking the plates - at first you think "what the heck is going on here", then you realise it's all part of the fun and vibe. The food offered was canapés, so can only comment on that. it wasn't great but it was nice for... More

We're big fans of Greek food, and Spiro's doesn't disappoint. The starter dips are very good, esp the hummus and aubergine dips. The gyros are great. Have had several of the pasta dishes also, never disappointed. If you have kids, there's a perfect play room and outdoor swings area. This is probably the best restaurant in Hout Bay for kids....

Traditional Greek food served with honesty and heart. Excellent for those with small children to be kept occupied whilst you glug your wine. Love the concept of no corkage on the 1st bottle and then only R50...it helps keep the bill down. Starters go for the Halloumi cheese - properly cooked. Lamb chops are amazing as is the lamb Gyro...

No better place to eat on a cold Monday, with the wood stove burning and a hell of a deal on one of the largest steaks I've ever seen. If you are in Hout Bay on a Monday this is the place to be.

This is a very traditional Greek restaurant in Houtbay. It has an excellent ambiance and during your presence in Cape Town you should eat at least once. Food is average, staff friendly.

What a lovely warm hearted place to have a meal. Kids can dress up and have a ball. Nice atmosphere and great food. A definite dinner spot for the whole family to relax and enjoy good food.
