Have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and it is always up to the same high standard.

The food is superb and priced very affordably. What some reviewers seem to be oblivious to is the fact that the restaurant serves meze, rather than traditional main courses, and you thus order several to share. There is plenty of choice on the menu and the meze portions are generous.

The restaurant itself has a nice interior and the owner is very friendly. There seem to not be many customers, which we couldn't understand, given our excellent experiences, but the absence of other people made it an even more relaxing atmosphere and, whilst the service is extremely attentive, it's certainly not intrusive.

Would definitely recommend!

Really surprised to find a great Greek restaurant in the middle of this historic neighborhood. Although the selections were considered tapas size, they were priced right so one could order a variety to enjoy. Salad was incredibly fresh and the tzatziki was excellent. Great change if you're looking for something other than traditional English fare.

We visited this restaurant after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. We were unsure how many meze dishes to order from the selection but chose 5 for the two of us with garlic bread also. The food was freshly cooked and arrived fairly quickly. We enjoyed the experience and had a pudding to finish as the meze dishes weren't quite enough to fill us. Would visit again when we are in the area.

My daughter and I ate here for dinner. We were the only customers. The owner was friendly and chatty (but not intrusive). They have a patio, but we ate inside as it was raining. We had a selection of mezes - that's what they do, not main dishes (mezes are like tapas) - followed by a spectacular orange cake dessert. Everything got eaten, and my daughter was happy!

Had been to this restaurant before in late in 2010 and had fabulous food, it must have taken us 30 minutes to read the menu it was vast and the choice was great. This time we were very disappointed. The menu was seriously limited and very disappointing. The food we did have was ok, nothing special and the portion size was tiny - we were still hungry when we left. Sorry to say but we won't be going back there again ! TIP to the Olive & Ouzo - go back to the original menu it was much much better !
