Small well decorated restaurant that serves delicious food at good prices and the cheese cake was to die for. This coupled with friendly staff and reasonable waiting time for food makes it a place to visit for excellent Mediterranean food

The owner was friendly and came out to chat to our table. The food however; was just okay. Mine resembled a stew with kebab meat on top. We usually go for a curry and fancied a change but left wishing we hadn't. That said. The restaurant was efficient and very clean. Maybe it was just an off day.

Fantastic food & hospitality. This was our first time but we will definitely be back. The food was delicious & very well presented. Fantastic flavours & very creative. We even had desert & we were treated to a delicious banana liqueur. It was a long way from our flat but well worth the walk.
