“Good food in disappointing surroundings”
Review of Zeus hotel and restaurant - CLOSED

Zeus hotel and restaurant
Cuisines: Greek
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 15, 2012

I was part of a work's party, attending Zeus before Christmas. In my experience, it is best not to expect much more from such nights other than a lot of noise, a lot of alcohol and food of, at best, average quality. On two of these counts, I was not disappointed. The food on the other hand was very nice indeed - keftedes (spicy meatballs) followed by a generous portion of stifado (beef). Possibly in the region of 200 hundred people served at the same time, the beef was surprisingly tender, accompanied by fluffy rice with, bizarrely, cauliflower, carrots and sprouts. All were well prepared with no hint of re-heating or the suggestion that the food had been hanging around impatiently

Drinks? The Spanish wine on offer was also a surprise for a Greek restaurant. No real ale and Guinness from a can. Make your own mind up

3.5/ for food, 2/5 for surroundings - a few well appointed lights could make a big improvement. Or perhaps they are hoping to avoid highlighting the rather dated decor?

I prefered the old place when it was just a restaurant which was much more "greek" and better ambience. The food is good, but now it is a hotel, I find it lacks character

We've eaten here at lunchtime and dinner and both have been fantastic. The dinner portions are very generous.The staff are very friendly and very good with children.

Being from Cypriot decent we decided to go get a Meze. Started out OK with the starters and other small dishes but the main meat dishes were very dry & overcooked, and the pork cutlets were charred & burnt.
Being brought up on meze's and having had hundreds from restaurants all over the world, this wasn't one that i could say was very nice.

Well truly the food was awful and it was a set menu which we'd all had to order in advance. Went on a Saturday night so some hideous 'entertainment' consisting of a dj, belly dancer and plate smashing. Typically greek this was ok.
