Expensive for what is basically chicken and lamb kebabs with chips. Stick to a takesway or milk bar it can be no worse. We had lunch menu which is limited to a few items plus the souvlaki. Was loooking forward to slow cooked lamb and lemon potatoes but not available at lunch time. Shame..restaurant was lovely on the eye..but food... More

The first time we ate here our friends ordered and we were force fed! Everything came at once! This time I decided that wasn't going to happen when some other friends asked if we could "go Greek tonight". The waiters have a very smooth tongue and try to get you to order way more than you need. I'd say it... More

Had lunch at Meet the Greek for Mother's Day. Service is great, food authentic and plentiful, satisfying all round. Real dolmathes, Greek wine (moschofilero), pita bread, halloumi and meat cooked over coals. I love the quirky factual decor and the translated Greek sayings for a good laugh. It has accentuated all the things we love about Greece and brought it... More

Dry, over-cooked lamb, disinterested staff and an inept manager, a real disappointment. This place should have spent less on the fit out and more on a decent service team.

We visited this restaurant with a group of friends and the volume of the loud, live music made it very difficult to talk. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful and the entrees were all nice. The mains we ordered were average as was the price. Nice location. If the live music was softer we would be encouraged to go... More

We ate here for a friend's birthday. I loved the atmosphere ( I even forgot I was in Brighton which is a good thing), the food was better than I expected and the service was exceptional. Close your eyes and you are in Greece, except it is not cheap. The food is Greek, tasty, fresh and the meat is cooked... More
