We weren't sure where to eat on last night in Bruges and a quick TripAdvisor search identified this as a possibility. We were NOT disappointed. The service was very friendly and attentive without being too intrusive. I ate chicken stuffed with feta and peppers. It was beautiful - served with some fried potatoes, rice and a bowl of salad. Just as we were trying to work out what to get for dessert the waiter wandered over with a sharing plate of walnut cake which was fabulous. I can't recommend this place enough!

We are Belgians and were looking for a restaurant in Bruges. We used tripadvisor and came out here! Even though we were not looking for Mediteranean food, we were not disapointed on the contrarary! Everithing was just perfect! We sent the day after some relatives to the same adress, and they were mire than satisfied as well! Finally a differentiating Greek!

Booked before we went to Bruges, a friendly welcome, good choice on the menu. We shared a tazeki starter with bread, then I had the fillet of sword fish, cooked to perfection served with potatoes and rice. The wife had the prawns in tomato and feta sauce, very nice too. A large dish of fresh salad, washed down with a nice red wine. A great fine dining experience. Top food and top service in the heart of Bruges.

Visiting Bruges for 3 nights and came across this on our last evening. What lovely discovery. Lovely attentive service in understated way. Swordfish was not available so opted for the calamari - wasn't disappointed. Lovely clean fresh flavours. Complementary dessert of semolina cakes soaked in lemon - yum! A must if you want a change from frittes with every meal.
