Went here for the first time a few weeks ago with my daughter and friend. Friendly service and decent food and portions. Would go again.

Lovely food, good music. I think just one of the waitresses could have been a little friendlier, didn't feel a great energy from her. The other waitress was amazing though!!

We visited this restaurant on a Friday evening for a Birthday celebration. The place had a great atmosphere initially with authentic Greek music playing in the background. The food was very good and portions a very decent size. The wait for our orders to be taken and our meals served was short. However, I would mention that the tables are... More

We visited for my birthday on a Thursday night and the restaurant was quiet but there was still a nice atmosphere. The food is traditional Greek and Cyriot, just like you would get on holiday. Portions are huge! Service is good and there was a live singer who was very good and took requests. My husband had the Kleftico feast... More

You don't often find independent Greek restaurants, and the chains aren't great, but I have to say this place is a real gem. The good choice is standard style Greek but made with great ingredients and served with passion and attention. The stifado and kleftico were our favourites, and the live music made our night complete. Excellent all round and... More

My wife and I had a wonderful leisurely meal amongst much larger families enjoying their Sunday meal. I f you like eating the Greek way then go here. All staff were brilliant and the price was very reasonable. My wife had never eaten Greek before and was very impressed with th "Akrpolis Meze".

We haven't been here since it was the adorable Candles of many moons ago. The décor has changed - it's quite posh now - but the food is still very good and the service too.

Really can't fault this place, the food is amazing, (huge portions which appeals to my other half) the food quality is second to none, the staff are warm and friendly-attentive but not overbearing and the price is very reasonable. The restaurant is small and therefore sometimes a bit cramped if it's full, which it normally is because the food is... More
