“Fabulous evening!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Beautiful evening spent here, had really gorgeous food, we had the mezze starter which was great and plentiful! We then went for one of the main dishes and a special main dish, which were both excellent. But what really makes this place is the great atmosphere and really attentive staff. It's a great, informal, fun place to spend an evening with all the staff being efficient, friendly, and very attentive without being pushy or interfering. Would definitely go back and recommend it to anyone.

“Great, plentiful food”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

We had the meze for £25 each which included 7 Greek starter dishes and a BBQ meat platter, cooked veg, Greek salad and chips. Would have fed 4, not 2, but lovely food and friendly staff. Would definitely return.

“Lively, Noisy, Informal, Fun.”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Excellent and large Meze starter to share, including a home-made houmous which was especially tasty - it was not entirely smooth (as many are) and it had a good interesting texture to it.

Beautiful fillet steak - cooked bleu on request and it was huge and delicious! Also skewered lamb main course was very good.

I did not care for the chips, I have to say. They were pale and rather soft and oily and came in a big mound.

My wife had a panna cotta desert which she reported as very good.

For wine we had a Pio Cesare Barbera d'Alba which went perfectly with both the steak and with the lamb.

The restaurant was noise and buzzing, but the atmosphere was very enjoyable. Thoroughly recommended.

“Best Meal We've Had In England!!!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

We decided to try Michael's today for lunch after reading favorable reviews on TripAdvisor, especially the ones that mentioned daily fish and seafood specials. I am SO glad we did. It was honestly the best meal in terms of quality and value that we've had so far during our 2 years here in England. Michael was very welcoming and the entire atmosphere of the restaurant was very classy but also cosy and friendly. We sat by raised fireplace, which was especially welcome on a cold day. My husband ordered the slow-roasted pork belly, while I had smoked salmon with capers and a side salad. We shared an order of mussels, too. I don't eat pork but my husband said it was first-rate, and the seafood was wonderful, especially the mussels. I should note that the mussels and my side salad weren't on the lunch menu, but there was no problem ordering them when we requested (we'd seen another patron eating the mussels and they smelled wonderful).
Michael was very kind and brought out an extra serving of steamed veggies after my daughter woke up hungry for her nap, and he chatted with us off and on throughout the meal.
In all, our bill came to 41.50 GBP, including the above-mentioned items, plus a glass of wine and the bread. I'm not sure if there was a cover charge for the bread, but it couldn't have been much at all if there was.
To sum it up, Michael's was superb on all respects: food, service, and ambiance. We will definitely be returning again soon!
