We sat in the garden as they were very busy. The home made dips were lovely and the specials kleftico fell off the bone. The staff weee so friendly and informative. Not a huge menu but all homemade and delicious.

Plenty of veggie options. You may need to mostly do side dishes and appetizers, but there are a lot of those. On a couple of Mondays, they do a Mystery Mezza which has a vegetarian option and gives you a ton of food.
