“Affordable quality food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

The best Greek style food in Durban. Lively atmosphere with live band music and gratis cocktails while waiting for your table to be ready. The portion size of the food is the same with gourmet style food. Meaning : Small but they allow you to share the food which is great.
Booking is essential as the place gets really busy.

“Great atmosphere & food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I love that one can order a range of small dishes, share and take your time. The staff make you feel welcome and the verandah is lovely, even in the middle of summer

“Best Greek Food in Durban”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

We have been here quite a few times in past but visited three times lasts week, family lunch, Mothers Day Set Menu and a birthday dinner with friends. On all three occasions we had an excellent meal and excellent service. Even on Mothers Day when it was so busy and we had a set menu were we not disspointed. The manager was constantly around checking that all was well and the ambience is very pleasing. The food is fresh, tasty and there is enough variety to please. Thanks David and Cosmos, we will see you soon.

“Zorba would be proud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

This is a fine restaurant in Umhlanga Rocks close to the Gateway Mall
The tables are covered with fine white Linen and the food is very authentic !
Be careful in how much you order as the portions are large and the quality is excellent
The wine list is extensive but not pretentious
The service could improve as the waiters/ waitresses are very young and inexperienced but this did prevent us having a lovely evening
