“Well over priced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Nothing special about the food. Well over priced for the area and quality. Seems to be the 'In Place' for Office girls having a Jolly up and to much to drink. Give me Soho any time and the same price !

“So 1980's”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Unfortunately this restaurant is stuck in the the 80's. The food was basic and poor quality, with the chicken and lamb dry and over cooked. The entertainment hasn't changed for years and the service was slow. No doubt this venue is good for large parties but don't go for good food or service!

“Not recommended for couples”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Visited Appolonia on Saturday night to celebrate a special occasion. While the restaurant caterers for large parties very well, as a couple we felt very much forgotten. When our order was eventually taken, the first course arrived and we had to ask again for our drinks! We were also very disappointed with the food, as it was very very bland. Its such a shame that we picked the restaurant on a recommendation, but we won't be visiting again.

“Fabulous!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

This is our second visit for a birthday party (2 years apart) to this beautiful restaurant, and yet again we weren't disappointed. The food was beautiful and plentiful. The staff were (the same as before) authentic Greek, welcoming, accommodating and genuine. We attended in a party of 12 for a 21st birthday and we were pretty much the only people there by the end of the night, but they made us welcome, kept us entertained and well fed and watered. The food is stunning and the we will definitely be back for another visit soon.
