“first visit”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

It was our first visit after many recondmendations it will not be our last. We had a very relaxing and excellent eating experience with friendly personal service and delicious food.We shared a starter of ham and cheese parcels very ample portions and which tasted brilliant.Our mains were chicken kebabs and grilled swordfish both very good and the desserts were a greek sponge cake and a chocolate torte both to die for.We intend to add this place to our growing list of restaurants to go to as we eat out most saturdays .Note bookings required for weekends took us 3 weeks to get a table at the time we want to eat .

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We don't know the area and were travelling through so looked at the TA reviews to make a choice of where to eat. We settled on this place and were glad we did.
The service was friendly and helpful giving us space to choose but offering advice when we were unsure.
We ordered one starter to share (which was ample). We then ordered the beef stew and the lamb skewers. The portions were impressive and came with good side portions of rice. The lamb, in particular, was delicious and cooked to perfection. The beef was also well cooked and enjoyed. I particularly liked the home-made beetroot and yoghurt dip that came with the lamb.
Although we had looked at the dessert menu, we were too full to try the many desserts which sounded very tempting.
Although the prices were slightly higher than our local greek restaurant at home, we considered the portions and quality higher and worth the extra few pounds.
If we lived in Carlisle, we are sure this would be one of our regular restaurants for meals out with the two of us and with family.

As you can imagine we are delighted to have been able to transport you away to Greece for a few hours.This is certainly what we try and do .The owner is from northern Greece and has many friends visiting over the years so their is more likely than not to be Greek banter in the background.
Thank you again
