We have eaten a lot here during the last 3 months and it has always been excellent. We have brought different sets of friends and everyone enjoyed it. The staff always went out of their way to get us a table even when they were manically busy .

We had dinner here, food was average and over seasoned. As a Greek family we enjoyed the atmosphere, but the place needs a clean. The table where we sat was sticky, the menu was filthy. We saw a waiter was a glass using his fingers in the inside, disappointing guys. We had a mezze platter, lamb chops, kleftiko and other... More

Hi Marius Thank you for review but I would just like to mention a few things. We have noted that customers think our tables are sticky but the varnish we used when we repainted them is actually the "culprit". We have started rectifying this by sanding them all down and treating them instead of using varnish. With regards to the... More

The family was on the way to the harbor and the traffic was crazy to get into the harbor mid December, so we went in the other direction, and saw Spiro's. They had parking and a few swings and monkey bars for the kids so we gave it a try. The food was excellent. I didn't expect it to be... More

This is a family restaurant offering simple but tasty traditional Greek food. Not a fancy place more like a taverna which you would also find somewhere near a harbour in Greece. Unfortunately, no Retsina on the wine list to go with the Gyro ...

Spiro's did a fantastic New Year special this year. Lots of fun, the owners and managers were on hand and worked really hard to make sure all went well, and importantly the food was superb. Will definitely go back soon for a more normal meal!

Before we even had a chance to taste anything we felt like walking out. Firstly, the table was sticky to the touch -yuk! When we asked for it to be wiped we were told that the tables had been recently varnished and weren't dry. Secondly we were forced to move twice as there were no signs designating smoking and non...
