There is a very nice outside seating area in the front and a small car park at the back but there is plenty of nearby parking. Décor-wise, not Greek but pleasant and new. Good attentive service. The meze was very good and mostly home made. Small and interesting wine list, but we stuck to the New World. Price-wise, a bit on the expensive side for a non-London restaurant but definitely worth a visit. There was a constant stream of patrons and some had to come back later for a table so obviously popular.

Me and my partner ate here last night after spending all afternoon looking for somewhere new and different. Having just come back from a holiday in Turkey, we were keen to have some mediterranean dishes to take us back to the fun times of the holiday. We were not disappointed! We had Tzatziki and pitta bread, Moussaka, Lamb shank and a lovely bottle of wine. Service was great- we were asked if we wanted our mains straight after our starters or whether we wanted a short break which was a nice touch- it's quite nice not to feel rushed and in-and-out. Really enjoyed the evening, simple decor of the restaurant was nice and refreshing and it did have a mediterranean feel which was great! Would definitely recommend- they were fully booked and very busy which shows that it must be good!!

We eat out every week as a special treat and don't mind what we pay. we have a lovely mum of 92 and took her here for Fathers Day. we had told the restauarant before we visited of my mums great age and attempted a friendly greeting on entry asking where the owner was from, as we have visited Greece many times and was met with a stony face, we paid a bill of £132 pounds for 5 of us and had no hospitality whatsoever and the cost of the food was diabolical. Very upset given our past experiences of greek politeness. We will never return.

The title says it all ! Really good, tasty meze (if not a little overpriced), and good friendly service. Recommended.
