“Great food”
Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

I had lots of starter dishes in a tapas style on a date and it was all really impressive, tasty and good value! The service is a bit over involved but otherwise a brilliant meal out!

I've been twice now and I would definitely go again.

“What a great evening!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

Well one of my friends was bored of curry so wanted to try something different. So we thought we'd go Greek and try this place. Very glad we did. It was freezing outside and we could see it was busy on a Wednesday night, I went in on the off- chance they had a table for 3. They didnt but the Manager said, come on in out of the cold, sit at this large reserved table, have a drink and look at the menu and I'll seat you ASAP. Perfect. 10 mins later we had a table. Service was great, food was lovely. We had mixed starters to share, then I went for Pollo Valdostana which was stunning (in fact the portion was too large I couldn't finish it all), my friends went for Kleftiko. Washed it all down with 2 bottles of House Red. We weren't rushed, it was just great to kick back, enjoy the meal with attentive service. Total came to £89 inc 10% tip. We'll definitely go back.

“Crackerjack!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Here's a quick review:
- Great atmosphere
- Wonderful welcome
- Very tasty food
- Good value
- great fun

Yes, we REALLY enjoyed our visit here and can only recommend it wholeheartedly. Not for a romantic candle-lit dinner for two, but for a group of friends or family, it's hard to beat.

Well done!

“That little bit of Greece.”

Been here a few times with friends usually at the weekend. Gets busy and noisy but that makes it just like being on holiday. The manager is excellent and look after you from start to finish.Great food, great service, great ambiance.

“Terrific food, good value & generous portion sizes, bit noisy though”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

I took 2 visiting friends here for dinner, and they absolutely loved it, excellent food. The beef stifado is to die for - large chunks of lean steak, in a delicious sauce - really soft, succulent beef, superb! One of my friends had the seafood risotto & was very impressed. Plus we shared about 6 mezze dishes, 2 or 3 dishes per person is plenty. All was delicious, reasonably priced, and service is friendly.

Our only complaint is that we were seated at the round table near the door, which was fine, but unfortunately there is a speaker directly above it, which was too loud, such that we had difficulty hearing each other, making conversation rather difficult. Perhaps the restaurant could install more speakers, in the ceiling, and spread the music sound more gently & evenly, rather than have it blaring from just a few speakers?
