What a find! The atmosphere, the service and the food were brilliant - one of the best Sea Bass meals ever, and the rest of our party really enjoyed their meals. And excellent value too.

We went here on a Saturday night, the restaurant is only small so make sure you book but the food doesn't disappoint. We went for the small plate option so we shared a range of Greek dishes - I would definitely recommend sharing dishes

Really wide selection of meat, vegetarian and fish dishes. Truly outstanding classic Greek dishes - especially the Moussaka & Kleftiko. The owner, Theo, is a truly outstanding host. Often gets very busy and can be a bit noisy on the weekends - but worth the noise for the food you eat. It is testament to the sustained quality of the... More

We have visited this restaurant several times over the past 20 odd years but only recently returned after a couple of years. We believe it has changed hands in recent years but weren't disappointed as it is good authentic Greek food, not to be confused with the Greek/Cypriot restaurants food which seem to be more common. Good to see they... More

Been here a few times with my husband and always have such a lovely time. The food is fresh and so delicious, a really nice relaxed atmosphere.

Maybe Saturday night is not the best time to eat here, but this was not a pleasant experience. Yes, the food was typically Greek but nothing outstanding or original. My main problem was that my husband and myself had to spend the whole time it took us to eat our meal, raising our voices to make ourselves heard above the... More

Theo and his team strike again. If you are looking for great Greek food, this is your place on the south shore. Nice sunny day and the first day we could enjoy great sunshine with another great meal. Met a friend and had mezzes, Greek salad and warm pita bread with Hummus. Nice weather, friends, conversation and food. A must... More

Hate giving a lower review as the food was pretty good. However, when you've booked a table but still get moved 3 times to make room for more people turning up, how good an experience can you expect to have. The last time was actually during our meal - the chap just came along and dragged the table out from... More

I went there with my partner to celebrate my birthday. We are both Greeks, so our expectations from a greek restaurant are very high. Fortunately, we weren't disappointed at all! All the dishes were perfectly cooked and served and the portions were satisfactory. We tried the kleftiko which was delicious! It reminded me of the food you can find in... More

Wanting a light late lunch, i suddenly remembered this little gem, that I had not rerurned to for over 7 years! It did not dissappoint. Small, busy, and serving excellent tarama, tzatiki and grilled sardines, followed by Paklava and ice-cream, this was delicious. Friendly and efficient service. You could get a wheelchair in, but probably too cramped unless ver yquiet.... More
