Description: The signature dish of Cyprus - Kleftiko literally means "stolen lamb”. The story goes that the "Greek Kleftes," Bandits who hid in the mountains, would sometimes steal a lamb for food. They cooked it sealed tightly on a buried pit of coals to keep a low profile, and not give away their hideout by sight and smell.My paternal Grandfather 'George' was known for his Lamb and Goat rearing in Famagusta, Cyprus. His Farm produced milk to make the famous Cypriot cheese Halloumi and his lambs were a treat to eat. The Restaurant will continue to use the finest local produce specializing in Cheshire Lamb.My maternal Grandfather, also called George, was famous for cooking the signature dish, in both his village of Kyrenia Cyprus where he was taught, and continues now in Manchester. We will be using the same recipe to cook the dish here at the restaurant. (We are lucky as his recipes are unique and he keeps them close to his heart).The restaurant embraces old Family recipes combined with new style to offer the ultimate Greek Dining Experience. Our cooking methods include, using a traditional wood-fired clay oven and a coal fired BBQ to give the full flavour to our food.Chef George & the team

Very enjoyable lunch at The Stolen Lamb, Wilmslow now becoming a favourite. Chicken Souvoulaki was superb, served with olive and yoghurt dips, fabulous home cooked chips and side salad, together with a Mythos beer took me straight back to wonderful Greek holidays. The prices are reasonable and the service relaxed. Looking forward to my next visit.

We are no strangers to Greek food - we have been visiting all over Greece for nearly 20 years and love the cuisine. The food that Yiorgos cooked for us (House Mezes) was nothing short of incredible! The flavours were unbelievably good - the man is a genius! Service was faultless! An amazing restaurant! Efharisto poli!

As someone who has never eaten in a Greek restaurant I was pleasantly surprised how much I and the others 3 enjoyed the meal. We had sharing dishes and each one was top notch. Really enjoyed the food and the staff were all good. Highly recommend a visit. I'll certainly return soon.

Booked this restaurant for a family meal on the Sunday before Christmas through their online reservation system. The system states that the booking is only confirmed once the request is reviewed by the restaurant's management and an email confirmation is received. We duly received the confirmation email and arrived at the restaurant for our meal only to find it closed.... More

Went here with friends for lunch and was not disappointed. Really tasty fresh food and when the chef wasn't happy with the way our main course had turned out he sent out a complementary dish to tide us over while he started again. The prices are very reasonable for both food and wine. It was quiet which was a shame... More
