1 star is for really lovely location, and the second is for the cheeze saganaki. The rest is nothing to write home about. The pizza was boring with almost no tomatoesaus. The expensive beef stroganoff was really terrible. The apperance on he plate was disturbing. The price is a ripoff. It is the same price you must pay for really... More

A lovely evening meal last night, Lovely setting, greeted with a smile, starter of garlic bread, followed by pizza which my husband said was the best he tasted on his visit here, chicken kebab was lovely followed by the banana split. Will definitely go back and a must to try and will not break the bank

There is a small playground for kids that will help you enjoy your meal... If you have kids of course. Foodwise, not a great greek experience. If it is one of your first greek food experience you will be happy. However after trying few other restaurant you will realize the tzatskiki is not that great, gyros is not a proper... More

Good selection of vegey starters. Had the saganaki (fried cheese) & Cretan aubergines (with tomato & feta) which were both nice. You can get bread which comes as a hard bun with garlic butter, a Beetroot dip & black olives, which was nice. We selected the swordfish for our mains, but found it a bit bland. It comes with a...

We went here twice and loved it. Good food and very nice staff and decor. Though the menu offers pasta and such try the lamb stew…. delicious.

Although previously overlooking this restaurant we were pleasantly surprised when we returned to try Myli on our last night. The calamari was beautiful, could only have been improved with a side of garlic butter or something similar. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Atmosphere and surroundings complimented the romantic mood and added to the overall experience. We enjoyed the prawn... More

Had a family lunch at Myli and expected a lot more according to tripadvisor rating. Unfortunately the only plus of this place was a playground - our 2 years old was busy all time. The fish we ordered turned to be raw and they didn't change it - just cooked the same fish once again. The tomato soup tasted sour... More
