I returned last week to Philinos whci several years ago I would have visited most weeks. It used to be a local favourite of mine. It is not exceptional food, just very good. The service is not posh but very friendly and professional. The decor is fairly basic but the atmosphere is wonderful. Sometimes when you go back you face the disappointment of change or perhaps your memory has played tricks on you. I have to say Philinos is still a wonderful place to go. The octopus was a delight and the lamb sensational. The reason I rate this place as excellent is the balance of great food, friendly ambiance and it is great value.
