Family friendly restaurant. Good wholesome food at a very reasonable price. Pleasant staff. Great place for a light lunch. Busy at the weekends so need to book.

“Local secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

Ok so it's not the most amazing place in the world.... But it's great.... Why well 1. The price very good 2. Staff are friendly 3. So flexible my wife is a celiac - this place goes above and beyond for her... She has never been sick from food here and we eat here all the time - that to be honest is amazing 4. The mussels ..... Oh the starter mussels we order 2 or 3 plates.....

So go if you want a good value place... Don't expect little Athens .... Expect a good night....

“Well worth the experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

We dined with a group and sat outside. This was very comfortable because of the breeze on a warm night.

Service was friendly and responsive, although I still wonder how waiters, not just here, take the orders generally in a sequence but then call out the dish's name when bringing it to the table.

We had the vegetarian platter: Tzatziki, Pita, Haloumi, Olives, Dolmades, Chickpea Fritter & Crumbed Mushrooms. Very tasty; ample for 2; dolmades were fabulous.

Good 'value for money' restaurant and well worth the re-visit.

“A dishonest experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Our night started off well with a lovely waiter and a beautiful taramasalata dip, but that's where it ended. We ordered the seafood platter, thinking it would be as it stated on the menu (calamari, whitebait, octopus and prawns), but we received mussels, battered cod and battered sardines. When I queried it with our new waiter (don't know what happened to our nice one but he disappeared) he said "Oh we change the menu sometimes". We still had a few pieces of whitebait, 4 prawns and 2 calamari rings and 2 baby octopus on the platter but it is obvious the others were put there as padding as there was very little of what we thought we were getting. I mentioned to the owner as we were leaving and was told "we sometimes put extras on". Padding more like it. I told her we would not have ordered that dish if she had been honest about it in the first place and put on the menu exactly what was on it (I hate mussels and sardines, ugh). Felt like the whole evening was a lie. Could have got the same meal at half the price at the fish and chip shop across the road!

“Lovely New Years Eve !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

We went to this restaurant with friends on New Years Eve and it was just lovely ! The waiters were good fun and with excellent knowledge and gave us some very helpful tips on ordering which worked out perfectly. The food was delicious and tasty and the staff were very accommodating with bringing more and adding extras as required.
