“Very good lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014

Enjoyed a quick lunch here before catching the train from Glasgow Queen Street. Food was really good, a huge variety of dishes on the menu. We opted for Greek meze, and ordered 7 or 8 dishes between two which ended up being a lot of food! Service was good and each dish we had was well presented and very tasty. Would return here when in the area.

“A Tiny Taste of Greece”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

The first thing I liked about this bright, breezy restaurant was the reasonably priced business lunch. I started to fear that this may mean they sacrificed on quality but as soon as my home made hummous starter arrived, my fears were unfounded. This superbly rich, sumptuous chick pea heaven totally hit the spot!! This was followed by a tasty chicken souvlakia accompanied by some light fluffy rice. At £10 per head (which included drink & tip) this is THE place to swing by for a quick, satisfying 2 courser. So impressed was I that I persuaded my teenaged, angst ridden daughter to accompany me the following week. This time I decided to opt for the a la carte to enjoy my favourite oven bottom greek potatoes. I was not to be disappointed!! Although a bit more expensive, the stiffado was to die for and adding the oven cooked spuds made this visit a total delight!! An excellent view of George Square completed this Mediterranean experience that I can't wait to repeat!!

“Cretan cousin ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Very nice food in the heart of Glasgow, after visiting Crete last summer I had high expectation. I would definitely come back there and would recommend it to anyone who fancy a bit of Mediterranean food.

“Great food, Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

My first visit here but hope to come back. Wegot a window booth overlooking George Square, which was great. Ordered the Meze for 4 and had a fantastic selection of starters - the portions were very generous - followed by a selection of 3 mains and a choice of deserts. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
