“Donna's Birthday”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We originally booked for 12. Our table size increased but the staff were more than accomodating getting extra seating. The atmosphere, the food was all excellent. The kids had a wonderful time as well. The food portions were generous. Will definitely be back.

“The Greek is Local & Twice As Nice!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Ventured back to Spiros in May 2013 for a 21st party & was greeted by Mr. Spiros himself. Although it was cold, we booked the outside covered back area with bar as we were a large group, but the heaters were on & blankies were supplied. Excellent food from the lamb shank; tiger prawns; burgers; bruschettas; fillets & lamp chops - everyone enjoyed their meals & the music & we raided the kiddies corner & changed the theme to a wig party & the staff did their traditional Happy Birthday performance - A FUN night was had by all!! A definite must-go-back trip required for summer! Great venue for families!

“Best family / cozy / comfy / fun / yummey food restaurant in Hout Bay”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Love love love Spiro's - the food is always great, the vibe is always a lot of fun and the owner and his staff add to the vibe. There is a dress up room for kids, as well as a fab kiddies menu. the staff watch the kids and ensure they are well looked after. My favourite area is the bar behind the restaurant, which is covered, so keeps it warm and cozy in winter. The music is well chosen and will have even the dullest person moving around in their chairs after lunch. For birthdays the staff put on a performance which has everyone clapping and singing along. For those wanting quiet time - there are smaller, more secluded rooms where one can enjoy the delicious food in a more relaxed atmosphere. Great place for private functions.

“Greek family lunch”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Spiro's is a cosy restaurant with a vibey atmosphere. Our warm Mezze platter was well presented and mouthwatering. The lamb shank (Kleftiko) was out of this world. All the kids enjoyed their grilled pita filled with meat (Yira) And the desert! ... We tried the owner's, 12 year old, daughter's creation - baklava cheese cake ( to be recommended). And to top that off, the service was excellent.
