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

Visited a couple of weeks ago with some work colleagues. Immediate observations were the candles going up the stairs, made it look lovely. Were seated by the window. We were initially the only customers, then it quickly became busy. Was surprised by the standard of the food, everything we ate was delicious and service was excellent. Would definitely visit again... More

The food was fresh and delicious and the staff were warm and welcoming too which makes for a pleasant atmosphere and it seemed popular with others. Only down side for me was that the toilets weren't clean when visited but not sure if this a regular occurrence or jut bad timing.
