We were looking forward to trying this restaurant as we had heard great reviews. Upon arrival we were seated and then forgotten about until my husband had to ask for menus and drinks 15 min after arrival. The wait staff would walk past our table without glancing.

Quiet. Romantic and very Greek Atmosphere village type, service excellent. Food exceptional. Lamb cutlets are a must. I recommend sharing 6 entrees for full flavour experience

Meet the Greek provides a chance to enjoy Greek cooking at its best... From its wonderfully fresh dips, to chargrilled octopus, to oven baked pork and lamb.Fresh Salads.. It was all in very generous servings, tender and tasty... We were all impressed..... If you're after a quiet Dinner for two.... Forget it here.... What you'll get is lots of loud... More

My boyfriend and I come here very often, we absolutely love it. The kontosovouli lamb is to die for! We have just been to zakynthos in Greece and have so far struggled to find lamb rotisserie ... most traditional tavernas don't have it.... a lot of them sell beef or lamb chops.... I didn't travel all this way for lamb... More

The atmosphere is really nice and cosy, which made a winter dinner a lot nicer! Service was reasonable. We had a share platter of meat, which was delicious and definitely could feed more that 2 (as recommended). The Moussaka was really nice to. Their bottle of Shiraz was also lovely ( I have forgotten the name). Would recommend for a... More

When we ate there the restaurant was very busy even though it was a week night. There were very few people there at 7 but it was full by8 o'clock or so. The waiters were run off their feet, but under the circumstances did very well & checked on us often. We automatically received a carafe of water as soon... More

We had a group booking for 15 people. Only 13 turned up due to last minute sickness. Before we started eating the restaurant insisted we pay for a banquet for all 15 people. They said they had already cooked the food. So we asked for them to take the price of corkage off the bill as a sign of good... More

We have been to Meet the Greek at least 8-10 times so I consider myself quite a regular. This place is always busy and I think that is the root of their problems.Service here has always been variable with a bit of an arrogant streak but the manager is in a class of his own. First though let's talk food.... More
