We got a friendly welcome from the owner as we walked in. The food is delicious and unpretentious. the fish cooked to perfection. Don't expect over boarding plates of food , portions are generous and sobering. Atmosphere is friendly.

Found by accident (It's nearby a Parking after coming back late from The Twelve Apostles). No regrets! We had lovely seats upstairs. Food was delicious, although we had to wait a long time before it arrived. Daganaki, Keftedes,and Chicken Souvlaki were excellent. And our waitress (from Paris) was very charming.
Tsindos s' agapoo.

The atmosphere here is quite wonderful - we had a table upstairs and it could have been close to the Mediterranean (if you discount the views!) The assortment of old lace table toppers (every table different) was a nice touch. We arrived without a booking and we're offered a rather squeezy table and told we would only have an hour and twenty minutes to vacate. When we declined and turned to go, we were told we could have a table upstairs ... our choice of them all, we were the first up there, so we thought the first option was a little weird. After that initial show of indifference though, the service was great - really friendly and patient when we hummed and hawed over our choice of wine. The "small" serve of mixed dips was very good (and generous) and the slightly oily, warm pita bread we ordered with them was yummy. Chargrilled octopus was reported to be good too. The mains were really huge, very salty and somewhat stodgy. The standard accompaniment was a hodge-podge of over-cooked green beans (more grey than green) in a tomato base, with potatoes. Desserts were also large but not particularly inspiring. Despite the ambience and the lovely service, Tsindos just misses the mark, somehow - perhaps the food needs to be a little less heavy?

This was our third visit to the restaurant and it is doubtful if we will return again.

Very poor service when we arrived and for first half of meal, waiting staff attempted to make up for this later in the evening, but we were already disappointed by this point in time. Food was average, but again disappointing that the vegetarian moussaka was not available.
