I have been meaning to visit this place with my family for some time now. Warm welcome, friendly and accommodating service. Healthy portion sizes on the kids meals. Food was tastey and well prepared. It's like the Spur of Hout Bay, relaxed atmosphere, good food and great for the kids to play.

Having been to Spiro's before some 2 years ago we were slightly disappointed this time. Service was not as attentive and the food was average. The baklava for pudding was a total disappointment as it was very dry.

we were welcomed to a cosy warm restaurant, as we were early there weren't many people around but it soon filled up. We have been there before and weren't disappointed.The food is not earth shkaing but solid "Hausmannskost".

Quirky looking Greek/Med restaurant, lovely coloured rooms and cosy fire. The food is freshly prepared and delicious. We ordered a selection of mere dishes and all were excellent. Particularly loved the grilled calamari and lamb meatballs.

went for Mother's Day lunch with my family as well as my 2year old grandson. Felt very comfortable at the restaurant. Food and service was good and all the staff were very welcoming and friendly. Would definitely recommend this family restaurant. Was the first time I had been and will definitely go back.

A nice lunch but not memorable. I ate hot meze. Chicken livers were really nice (a little salty but I like salty food) the halloumi was not great but was ok. Teenage kids had spaghetti bolognese which they polished off and declared very good. Great playroom and outside kids area if you have small kids. Was a little noisy as... More

Always a pleasure to visit Spiros. Excellent staff and managers. Greek food at its best. Lamb Yiro is awesome, my favourite, and also tried various Mezze items which are great. Home made Baklava was the cherry on the top. The night would not have been the same without Spiro himself, an amazing host and character. See next time when in... More
