This is a Albanian/Greek restaurant with a varied and absolutely delicious menu. The restaurant is not large but that is nice and the atmosphere is great, we couldn't fault the food it was excellent, we were made to feel very welcome, will definitely eat here...againMore

With eight friends we dined here on Saturday and it was very nice indeed. Not sure about the atmosphere as I was facing a big wall but food was very good. Fish dishes in particular are yummy and the beef was slow cooked and very...succulent. Only thing that let it down a bit was the dark haired waitress who blew hot and cold. One minute she’d be smiling, the next she was having a good scowl. She didn’t ruin the night though. Recommended. Also I suggest you book as it’s very popular.More

We visited here after viewing the menu online and reading reviews on trip advisor. So glad we decided to give this a try. Something a little different for ourselves. We had Tavë Dheu and Afelia, good size portions for both dishes and so tasty. The...rice was really moist too. The lady serving was really polite and friendly. Not many people in the restaurant for a bank holiday Monday, but you should definitely give this this restaurant a try.More

We visited midafternoon on a Saturday and were 2 of 4 people in the restaurant but greeted with a lovely welcome. This restaurant should be fully booked all the time it is that good The food was exceptional and the service perfect. We ate so...much but still managed dessert!!! What a gem in Hartogate....choose here rather than the impersonal establishments Harrogate seems to be filled with. One request though....please buy a briki and start to offer authentic Greek/Turkish coffee. In summary an amazing meal...we will be back. Thankyou so much.More

First time visit. Food quality good and service friendly. Got very busy, warm energetic atmosphere and a real buzz about the place. First time trying Albanian cuisine in a taverna-like establishment. Would love to return on a future visit.

We booked this last minute as we are currently away on our ‘baby moon’ before number 3 arrives in a few weeks . The food was exceptionally good , I had a beef dish called Tave Dheu (sorry if that’s not spelt quite right but...I’m sure the staff will tell you correct name - it had feta in ) . Husband had lamb We both agreed it’s the best food we’ve eaten in a long time and you wouldn’t have known it was a bank holiday either - staff were attentive and quick Pleasantly surprised by the bill too ! Couldn’t recommend moreMore
