I have been to Vagelis a few times and I have never been let down. Have been for both breakfast and lunch. Seems always busy which is a good sign. The coffee is great as is the food. Definitely recommend.

A friend and I recently had breakfast here to celebrate her 80th birthday. We had bacon and eggs which was served with a slice of fried bread, a nice change from toast. Very good coffee and wonderful service by our attentive waitress. I have eaten here several times in the last few years and it is still consistently good.

Fortunately it was a family catchup as the the delivery was exceptionally slow. What was finally delivered was tasty , good coffee. When busy I would suggest they need an extra hand / chiefs the kitchen

Last time I went for dinner and was disappointed, but this time, for lunch, we were more careful what we chose. Out of the 4 dishes 3 were very good and one (duck salad, the meat was a bit tough)slightly disappointing, although the taste was very nice. The others had pasta with bacon, prawns and white sauce, a Greek salad... More

Been going there for years, before a flight where you know the airport food joint cut it, this week the food was the best we had. One of those things you don't think to write a review somewhere you always go, but my Vagelis mince with eggs and bacon was worth the effort to write.

We've been to Vagelis twice recently and both times we were very happy with our dinner choices. On our first visit we had the chicken and mushroom risotto and the lamb shanks. These are both enormous meals and very good value for the price. The next time we had the carbonara and the mousakka. Both of these meals were smaller... More

We had brunch here on Sunday morning. Place was crowded - took a while for the food to come, but it was nice once it arrived. The wait staff were friendly. We ordered plain toast for our daughter who had recently been sick -but that took 45 minutes to arrive - it seems the cook kept doing a buttered one... More

We had limited time and waited 55 minutes for 3 toasted sandwiches and bruschetta. It took 15 minutes for a bottle of water to land on our table. Terribly slow. On the upside the staff were friendly & the manager gave us a meal voucher due to the slow service. The food was good enough, & hopefully when we return... More

Have been here many times before. Never disappointed. Staff friendly and helpful. Knew all about the menu and specials. Tables well presented and clean. No lipstick marks on the wine glasses. Could have had better background music. Should check the general age of clients before selecting some songs.
