“Average meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

All dishes looked the same, served with the same medley of vegetables. The tastes were good, but the food was in adventurous and uninspiring. Good service. Not extraordinary.

“Long wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Apparently we came on a very busy night for them and had to wait 1-2 hours for our food. The food tasted good, however looking back - it could have just been that I was really hungry. We weren't the only table waiting, at least another 3 tables around us looked like they were about to fold over on their table due to hunger.

“Decent Food - Good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

We tried a Mixed Dip Plate which had an olive and sun dried tomato tapenade which was excellent. The prawn saganaki was average but the special we ordered was a goat ragout. This was a simple preparation with goat meat and roasted potatoes. The goat was cooked to perfection and was tender with a beautiful flavour. The gravy was a gentle mix of spices that was complemented with soft Greek bread. Delicious. The service was good without it being over attentive.

“Just Sad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

What a shame.

This could be a really nice restaurant if they just fixed up the cramped layout, mediocre food, incapable staff, deafening noise, long waits and rickety furniture. Oh, and the seagulls perched on the outdoor tables picking scraps off departed guests' ignored plates were upsetting.

You're supposed to say something nice, so I'll point out that the heritage building they've blighted with their overpriced canteen is quite charming.

“Not cheap, but worth it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Having travelled to Greece last year, it was nice to enjoy some authentic Greek food again. The menu at the Methezes is quite extensive and all of the dishes ordered by our party were excellent. Not one person (5 of us) could fault the lamb, seafood or vegetarian dishes we ordered. The desserts were a little on the sweet side (even for Greek desserts) and the total bill was more than for the other (similar class) restaurants we visited on our trip, but I'd go back in a flash. Lovely, tasty food and efficient staff.
