The resturant served a lovely chocolate mousse at... More

Whilst the owner is Danish, nevertheless the food is Greek but with a hint of other European countries on the menu to choose from. We did not have one bad meal out of the five we... More

Dining at Symposium was a memorable experience for all the right reasons. The food was tasty and well presented whether it was a traditional Greek dish or dishes with a Nordic influence. Absolutely worth a visit.
