Banquet

Really great atmosphere and wonderful staff. We had a huge table so we had the banquet. The entrees were great my only fault is the eggplant dip needed to be more pureed as the different textures eg. Onion and thick eggplant were not pleasant. Everything else was amazing the chicken was too dry and... read more

It has a nice view where you can see the beach. Other than that, the food is average. Still a fun place to go.

I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation for the food but do not and I repeat do not go if you like service. The staff all looked like it was their first day as wait staff. It was pathetically poor. We asked for champagne glasses and the waitress said she didn't know if they had any and just continued to... More

First of all they are friendly Service was of a normal waiting time Food was plentiful and large helpings. Try the Scewers of Lamb a Half is enough Wine was a reasonably price and a extra touch was the desert wine from Samos Greece after Deserts. A must try we spent 7 Days at Brighton Beach and returned twice. Give... More

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

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. On a positive note, the food was great and very tasty, but the... 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
