We ate here before seeing the calendar girls at the Marlowe a week or so ago. The service was brilliant and the food was authentic and fantastically cooked. The pork skewers were to die for. Little touches such as the Greek bottled water really made...More

Lots of variety, much to choose from, lively if somewhat noisy atmosphere. Some of the items seemed slightly unusual for a Greek place, for example the Halloumi was thick and not the usual taste.Greek chips were tasty but nothing like standard Greek potatoes. Delicious rice...More

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Canterbury. There is a great atmosphere, friendly fast service and the food is excellent. Feels very authentic, based on holidays in Greece! The portions are enormous and we always tend to over-order, tempted by all the tasty...More

Came here for 'lunch' (mid afternoon) on a Saturday. Had Dolmades, (with pork mince in, which I didn't know was a thing) which were nice; pork/beef sausages which were tasty; and the spanakopita which was rather dry and plain and disappointing. Not like what I've...More

We went for dinner. My wife ordered stifado, and I had kleftico; we shared a large Greek salad which we started before the mains arrived. The kleftico lamb was tasty and tender, with just the right amount of rosemary and new potatoes. The pitta bread...More

Big portions and lots of flavour. Menu is all Greek and food takes a while to come out as cooked to order, halloumi is quick and meze as ready, skewers took 25mins, hungry so watched the time. Happy we could not be bothered to walk...More

Now, bear in mind, this is our first time and we haven’t tried any of the mezzo ( which looked so good). We weren’t very hungry and so just had main courses. I had the moussaka and my husband had the 3 skewers of pork...More

About 150m, straight down the road. Very convenient for theatre. Bigger problem is parking unless mum has a blue badge. See Google maps for car parks.
