We visit there now and then, sometimes for celebration others just to eat. With Cypriot connections we appreciate the food on offer there. Never had a bad meal yet and look forward to next time.

Lovely friendly staff, great menu I chose grilled hallumi for starters then beef stifado both cooked to perfection and very tasty, lots of bread and a beautiful Greek salad. Really good value for money wish we lived nearer ( we live in Yorkshire ) I would definately visit regularly.

Great staff and owner....small but good value for money. Vegetarian mousakka needs attention as probably don't sell many and we felt it had been in the fridge for many days.
