“A pleasant Greek surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

We found this restaurant on a cold wintry night and taking shelter from the sleet we were amazed at how busy it was. The decor is a little cheesy and very 1980,s, but the food was superb. Best we've had this side of Cyprus! We ordered the meze for 2 and struggled to finish. At around 20 quid a head it's well worth a visit if you like good Greek food with no frills.

“Much better places to eat !”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

We went out for a friends birthday tonight and we went with the reviews that we had seen on trip advisor but we where let down. We where rushed trough selection even though the menus is quite limited and it was not busy! All 4 main meals arrived within ten mins and where not fresh. All tasted like where pre cooked and heated in microwaive when needed. There are much better places to eat in Newcastle.

“Fit for the Gods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Returned to Simply Greek for the first time in a while and took the Mrs. for Valentines Day. Food was lovely as per and the staff were really friendly. The decor is typical cheesy Greek (tiles, wooden donkeys etc.) but this ads to the atmosphere. Also boasted very decent value for money considering its location in the heart of Newcastle.
