Description: Located on Bristol Street in Birmingham, Ulysees is a bright and vibrant Greek themed restaurant perfect for parties and fun meals with friends. The fantastically kitsch dining room - with colourful frescoed walls and plaster columns - is home to belly dancers, disco music and a live bouzouki band. Classic Greek dishes such as moussaka - layers of potatoes, courgettes and minced beef topped with bechamel; keftedes - meatballs in a rich tomato herb sauce; and chicken souvlaki marinated in olive oil and lemon juice; are served alongside the finest organic wines from the Pelopennese. Popular for birthdays, hen's nights, corporate events and office parties, Ulysees is a unique and entertaining venue for memorable nights out. FREE CAR PARKING

Booked a table for my girlfriend and myself for a chilly and wet Saturday evening. Arriving at 8pm the place was almost empty and I was worried that I'd made a terrible mistake. Was the food bad or the service awful? I couldn't have been more wrong. The food was great tasting, well cooked and well presented and the staff friendly, (though maybe a little more attention would have been nice). The live music was modern...but with a great Greek twist and with the arrival of a party and a few more guests a good atmosphere developed and we had a thoroughly enjoyable experience topped off with a few cocktails. We'll be going again.

Wonderful Greek food and ambience in Ulysses, we had fantastic tasty meal last night. I had kleftico which the meat fell off the bone really tasty, it's the best lamb I have ever had . My wife had moussaka which was fabulous! We followed by home made Greek sweet platter which was delicious. Excellent service from Panos owner and staff. Great finish to the night with amazing entertainment. Definitely recommend, thanks again.

A group of us booked to see Derren Brown as a joint birthday celebration and to eat out. Never having been to Birmingham, and hoping to be able to pay for our meal with Tesco vouchers, we were delighted to be able to pick this restaurant which has such good reviews, a large range of greek dishes including ones not usually available at other greek restaurants and live music. The interior of the restaurant emulates ancient greece with statues and pictures etc to get you in the mood. The food is cooked to order and delicious, the service excellent and the atmosphere completes the greek experience. Unfortunate that health and safety in this country prevents the fun to be had in plate smashing!

Last weekend we were lucky enough to celebrate our fag do (stag do) at this restaurant.
We would highly recommend any party coming to this restaurant, the entertainment was fun,dancing to the old tunes, guitarist funny, and the belly dancing exotic, all that was missing was the smashing of the plates!!
The owners were lovely and very accommodating to our needs.
So if you are looking for something special I would recommend this.
Hopefully we will be returning again soon for another party, so get the sambucca and cocktail shaker out.
Thankyou for a memorable visit, Andreos and the lovely blonde lady behind the bar.
