We were recommended this restaurant and were very disappointed. The menu is unclear so we chose from the counter display. The whole meal was cold when it arrived. The waiters attitude was dismissive

Greek salad was big portion and slice of feta on top had good taste and size. Stifado, beef with small onions, was mouth-watering and had taste of clove and cinnamon. White house wine fruity and light.

...that's how good it is. It's not a cutesy little Instagrammable place but an old-fashioned road-side taverna that can seat two or three hundred people and where Greeks go for family celebrations. There's ample parking outside. The menu is extensive. Some of the dishes are...More
