“Delicious food and lovely service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

The food we had here was amazingly yummy, however it was not cheap! Good place if you really like greek food and you don't mind spending a little. The restaurant itself is very nicely done out, and the waiters and waitresses were very attentive, polite and friendly. Overall - excellent!

“Very pleasant; friendly staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Very pleasant atmosphere. Friendly staff. The food was very good. It did take a bit to arrive, but the waiter was far more apologetic than he needed to be; we were happy to wait for good food. Even offered us a coffee on the house! Will be going back for sure.

“Good food”

Good food and decent price. Service was quick without being over quick. Restaurant nicely laid out. Didn't get feel of sitting on top of each other.

“Great way to start our Greek adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We travelled down from Kings Lynn after hearing good reviews and wanted to get in the Greek mood before our holiday. Staff were friendly, the restaurant has a great Greek feel to it and to top it off the food was authentic and tasted great. Can especially recommend the dips, calamari and prawns in feta. The wine was lovely and the house lager was also good. Will certainly be going back after our holidays. Table 12 Saturday 17th August.
