Having eaten here several times we hoped for another pleasant evening. Being between Christmas and New Year, it was very quiet so why seat us on the 1st floor along with 4 other people?. Down stairs was equally empty, so why use 2 floors? The service was very slow - 45mins between first 2 courses - and the food was poorly presented and served. Quick enough to get us the bill the moment we asked for it.

Service good,food lovley could have done with taking a couple of pounds of the menu here and there.Maybe thats why its was the only place in the town centre we could find on a saturday night that had spare tables?

Ordered the dolma, houmous kavurma, tzatziki, tyropitakia (feta filo rolls)-was plenty for two for a light dinner. The presentation was beautiful and plentiful, very authentic, simple, uncluttered.

Service was friendly, fast and attentive. Atmosphere was nice-was able to look out to the pier and the water.

Took our son here Saturday lunchtime. (He's at university here.)
Service was brisk, polite and attentive. Some bread with oil and herbs for dipping appeared unbidden. We had a mezze, stuffed peppers and moussaka. All competent enough but the only exciting thing was the bread. Otherwise, an expensive place with a short menu for Greek cuisine. There are better places in Aber.

The food was very ordinary and very expensive for what it was.
The waiter almost stood over us waiting for us to finish even though the resturant was very quiet.
I would not go back.
