We dined here after a couple of drinks on the town. The food was amazing and quite authentic. We ordered a sharing mezze board which had a selection of different things including pulled pork gyro meat, stuffed peppers, pittas, dips, tzatziki, olives and moussaka. The...food was delicious. There is such a choice of dishes also and the gyros looked nice. I would visit again when in Newcastle if only to try the gyros.More

Firstly, I've never ever found a restaurant I've enjoyed so much that I've took the time to write a review. This place is absolutely incredible. The prices are amazing for the service and quality of the food provided - starters came quickly (pitas were still...warm which is a bonus) and the mains took slightly longer but no longer than you would expect for food which has clearly been cooked to order. I'm not a person who has ever eaten a bit of halloumi and enjoyed it - but I tried a little bit of my girlfriends and it was absolutely gorgeous I could have easily finished her plate. Can't even explain how nice the main was. I ordered a pork gyros which came with a healthy side of home cooked chips. I'm genuinely struggling for words trying to write this, the only word that comes to mind is perfect. Incredible cocktail selection which I unfortunately didn't quite have the coin to sample but will certainly buy one when I return which will be very soon.More

Absolutely perfect. The food was simply delicious. Service fantastic. I was alone on a work trip and the staff couldn’t do enough for me. My only disappointment is that I’ve been coming to Newcastle for 8 years with work and until now, have never tried...this restaurant. I will definitely be back! Food was fresh and delicious.More

Me my wife and two children called in on Saturday, my kids are fussy eaters, but looking at the menu, there was something for everyone, me and the wife order the Mezze platter, Chicken, Moussaka, a beef dish, salad, pita and dips, my son doesn't...like wet food, but he tried out the beef and the dips, he was super impressed, my daughter loved the salad, me and the wife loved everything on the plate tbh, food was beautiful, the staff fantastic, we sat outside at first as the weather was stunning, but when the clouds appeared it got cold quickly, my daughter wanted to go inside and the staff made up a table no bother whatsoever, a lovely experience and will return.More

I enjoyed a lunchtime special of two Greek courses for £11.95 (which is available till 7pm). You really can't complain at that price! And the food was fine - I could have done with the spicy Greek sausages to be a bit more spicy, and...the Moussaka to be a tad more tasty - but I'm not going to complain. The service was great, and the atmosphere indoors good. Situated in Newcastle's infamous Bigg Market, I might even try the extensive outdoor seating next time (and there will be a next time!).More

I stumbled on this restaurant this afternoon when I was looking for something to eat. What a find. Simple, whitewashed taverna style restaurant with oodles of charm and a warm welcome. I had the saganaki (deep fried feta cheese in a honey and sesame dressing......beautiful) and chicken souvlaki from the set menu (11.95 for 2 courses). The flavours and freshness were really impressive and probably had the best tzatziki I've ever tasted, so creamy! Real chips too and a very generous portion. They have a good selection of wines and cocktails which are very reasonably priced (although there is only one each of red, white and rose you can buy by the glass). Most cocktails are under £7, which for a town centre venue is very good. The couple next to me had the mixed meze platter which looked phenomenal, and will be my next choice when I take friends back to visit. A real gem in the heart of Newcastle. I will definitely be back.More

The food was amazing, I had the chicken gyros and the shredded chicken was so soft. My other half got the vegetarian mussaka and they said it was so delicious! The services was so lovely. Keep up the good work :)

I had kleftico which was lovely, although a little dry, it came as a large lamb shank but no cooking juices. The potatoes were delicious Greek waxiness. He had thePork Slouvaki which he was very happy with, dsaid the chips were excellant. It's a bit...rustic mismatch, we were in the cellar,but the service was still good. Does have bottled Fix beer though !More

The best Greek I’ve had outside of Greece, and better than some in it!!! All form favourites on the menu and very fairly priced. Great food, great service will return…
