Truly Authentic Greek

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... read more

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

This place offers tasty Greek cuisine and there is something for everyone on the menu. it has a kids vibe, a dinning vibe and a bar vibe, and all can be found under one roof. If you like Mediterranean delicacies, you can't go wrong with spiro's. All that's missing is some plates to break..

When a restaurant is filled with locals, you know they are doing something right. The food is your typical honest generous Greek fare just the way Mama would have cooked it. The mezes were great and the Kleftiko succulent and juicy. We sat outside under the big plane trees, and Spiro himself was in attendance to ensure that all the... More

Had supper with friends, service good, food good. Had selection of Meze to start, very tasty and nicely presented. Main course, Lamb kebabs, the Mousaka both excellent. Quite a noisy, busy place but in a funky kind of way. Encourages families but also has quitter rooms for other dinners. Really great place to each.

Family restaurant with friendly staff and very good food. If you have a problem just ask for Spiros and will handle the situation in his charming way. The ladies like his antics.
