A lovely meal with friends at the Retsina. First time here and I wasn't disappointed. The food was authentic and reasonable. Only thing is you have to pay extra for chips or rice and surcharges on some meals but well worth it. Our server was very pleasant and friendly. A good two course meal with two soft drinks for £20...

Visited last minute to catch up with friends. Went early evening about 6pm. Friendly helpful waitress and staff. All enjoyed our meal and I had the hummus, veggie moussaka and baklava. Had the Greek wine which was lovely too. Lively atmosphere but enough to enjoy ourselves. Got quite busy for a Wed too.

The food was all freshly prepared and cooked at the back of the restaurant in full view. My fiancé and I have recently got back from Greece and it is also where we are getting married next year and... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem, we must have eaten here 6 times over the summer months. The 2 course set menu for £9.95 is such good value I can HIGHLY reccomend the mixed grill it's so so tasty i'm salivating just thinking about the lamb chops.

It took 30 minutes before anyone even asked if we would ike a drink. The food took an age to finally arrived. The prawn skordates was vile. The sea basswas overcooked and the gammon was impossible to even cut. The waitress, if you can call her that, slammed the drinks down so hard my elderly mum jumped out of her... More
