“Great food, great price and great welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

We ate here in 2010 and were very pleased to see they have survived the downturn that has obviously gone on in the town centre.
Considering their central location, they are one of the cheapest places to eat, and the food is all freshly cooked, we only stopped for a Greek salad and dolmades this time but both were lovely and fresh.
The house wine is some of the nicest around, but most importantly the staff are super friendly and helpful. We don't usually spend much time in the town centre, but this is one of the highlights and I would have no hesitation eating there again

“Excellent Greek food”

We had a really friendly welcome from the owner, the food was superb, and at sensible prices, as were the drinks.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here, and would recommend it.
