My partner and I visited this family-owned restaurant last week, for the second time, with a Groupon voucher I had purchased before Christmas. When we arrived at the restaurant it was a little chilly inside (but I was sat next to a very large window) but the atmosphere and the staff were superb. The food was again delicious, and seemed very authentic. The menu was different this time round and I have to say I prefer it, there was a lot of choice and we found it difficult to pick. But I had the lamb cutlets in lime juice and garlic, and they were outstanding. Best lamb I have ever had!

We would strongly recommend visiting this restaurant, and we will most definitely be eating there again soon.

We live local to this restaurant and have always wanted to go, but for some reason never actually did. So we decided to give it a go as they take our "Gourmet Discount Card" for buy-one-get-one-free and we were nicely surprised. There were just the 2 of us, but families and large parties are all catered for

The décor was a little dated & it was a lot smaller than I imagined from the outside, but is still very clean with plenty of space between tables, which I love as I hate been crammed together so you are practically sat on the other persons table and can hear their conversations. It did fill up fast after 7pm so I would recommend booking a table before you go, they do have a bar area if you need to wait. We did not go into the bar area so I'm not sure what it looks like

The food was beautiful and very well presented. The portion sizes were perfect and they were all well cooked. We had the prawn parcels & mixed platter for starters, for mains we had the mixed meat plate (Lamb Kofta kebabs, chicken kebabs, lamb shank & pilau rice) with roasted potatoes as a side dish. For desert we had Baklava and a semolina sponge pudding with Greek yoghurt. The meal came to just over £60 (including our drinks - one coffee, a glass of wine, one metaxa & a lemonade) which I thought was great value and with the Gourmet Discount Card it came to £42 (as you pay for the most expensive dish in each sitting). I was very impressed

On a Saturday they have live Greek Music, we missed that as we went on a Friday night. We will definitely be returning for this in the near future and they take the discount card on Saturdays too!! They also take the Taste Card if you have one of those

I would recommend this restaurant for anyone of any age and for any occasion.

I visited the restraunt on a Saturday night with my family and I had a fantastic night. The food was so delicious and the staff were so polite and helpful. The Greek dancing was very entertaining and creating a great atmosphere. I will definitely be visiting again!

An excellent meal with great live music. Be sure to book a table downstairs to enjoy the music- only Saturday evenings
We had Lamb Kleftiko and Mixed Grill. Both really tasty and plenty of meat.
Lovely atmosphere - even some dancing.
Great service

My only complaint would be the temperature. Very cold in the bar upstairs and a little cold in the restaurant, although I was sitting next to front bay window

Went to this restaurant for a graduation celebration in December 2013. The service was very good, food was enjoyed by most of the party although one member of the party thought their steak was very average compared to the price and the meatballs were quite 'unusually' spicy. Although the chicken I had was wonderful. Drinks were a little pricey but I would try this restaurant again.
