This is one of our local restaurants. It's always busy, the food portions are large, and the food is fresh and tasty. Make sure you make a reservation, as it's quite often booked out.

Hadn't been for a long time as it was booked out when we tried. It was lacking in service, meals came out at different times, forgot the wine order completely. Asked for the bill forgot that as well. Food was good, staff inexperienced.

A lovely restaurant to have tapas and dinner. The Zucchini fritters were excellent. We had also Saganaki ,fettuccini matriciana and kataifi pastry prawns. The latter was well prepared. The staff was friendly and helpful. Worth a regular visit.
