“Stunning!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

Was visiting family from the states and was so impressed with the atmosphere and service!! The food was outstanding! Loved the calamari, the traditional Greek salad and the mezza options on the menu. Also really loved the friendly personal greeting I got from the owner and family!
I went back three times in my two week trip!!

“Never disappoints!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Delicious Greek food! Meat meze platter for 2 great value for money and add a Traditional Greek Salad to go with the meal! Beef Yiro in Pita with the best freshly fried chips I've tasted also my fave. Grilled calamari also good - grilled perfectly and flavoured well. Their Kerkira Baby Chicken mild peri-peri grilled with lemon, oregano and olive oil is also a must! For dessert try Rizogalo, a traditional Greek rice pudding with ground cinnamon served either warm or cold or their Baklava Cheese Cake rounded off with a good cappuccino. Awesome hospitality, great service and atmosphere.

“Each time I go back to JHB I have to go at least 3 times”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

The food is delicious Greek seafood and their meat maze platter is great value for money as well as it being a family business - I am always pleased to bring friends to my gem in JHB. This recent stint consisted of 4 dinners and never once was I dissapointed

The food and service is amazing. The owner is always around, too makes sure everything exceeds the required standards. Long lazy afternoon hangout.

“Excellent Food & VERY family friendly”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

We had a very enjoyable & relaxing Meze lunch on Saturday 29th March. Seated at the front of the restaurant opening onto the main pedestrian walkwayfor ease of pushchair access, the staff could not have been more attentive to ensure our 11 week old grandson was kept nicely shaded from the sun by repositioning 2 large umbrellas whilst taking our food and wine orders with quiet efficiency. We enjoyed an excellent vegetarian platter for 4, pita breads plus good size portions of baby squid, whitebait & streak strips together with a generous salad all accompanied with 2 bottles of 2012 Le Motte Sauvignon Blanc & still water followed by double expresso's all for the equivalent of £50's including a deserved tip. The Design Quarter itself has a range of restaurants and chic shops with a cosmopolitan vibe and is clearly very popular with young families.
