“Authentic greek food at amazing prices :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I celebrated my birthday here in December with around 10 friends.

The staff had decorated the table with balloons and made a real effort to make us feel welcome - a wonderful touch. We all had the three courses for £16.50 option (party menu), which was incredible. I was stuffed! Personally I had the trio of dips (tzatziki, taramasalata and houmous), followed by an enormous portion of stifado, topped off with baklava and honey ice cream. Could not fault it!

I used to work in Chania (Crete) and am forever pining for some proper authentic greek food - well, this was it, and I will be returning again and again as soon as my obligatory New Year diet is out the way!!

If you live in Stratford or are just visiting - you really must check it out x

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Being a lover of Greece and having friends we met in Greece living in Stratford we booked el Greco to see what it was like, great decor, lovely staff and most of all Greek food and Greek music felt like we were back on Corfu. The food was amazing , the service attentive . Sorry to discuss toilets but they are amazing to. If you like Greek food, great atmosphere then book a table at el Greco . We will definitely be going back again.

“New Year's Eve mezze madness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

We visited El Greco on the spur of the moment for New Year's Eve. We were lucky enough to get a cancellation and also told the deposit had been paid and this would come off our bill which was a pleasant surprise.

All the staff at El Greco made us feel extremely welcome as soon as we arrived. To eat, we had the mezze selection, one meat and one vegetarian this was more than enough and every single dish was beautiful. The house wine was also good value. As it was New Year's Eve there was belly dancing and the party was in full swing when we left shortly before midnight.

El Greco is well worth a visit if you are looking for authentic greek food in the heart of Stratford upon Avon It has a lovely relaxing atmosphere and super tasty food.
