Last visited in October and then again over the last few days. Nice food, meze is included. Mains are tasty and well presented with some great art on the plate made with the tomato sauce etc. Service has always been good with the waiters being very obliging.

Great location off the main drag in a quieter side street. Pleasant upstairs terrace so you can watch the crowds go by. Friendly staff. Good value. Free salad, bread, dips. Excellent Chateaubriand!
