Visited here for dinner with family got seated right at the front door and directly in front of this guy playing Greek music on guitar not a good start , there seem to be confusion amongst the waitresses as to who was going to serve us and the one that did was hopeless so we asked for another. The food... More

Sorry to hear about your experience are you sure you dine at my Taverna what day was it? we don't sell home brew ouzo! Our signature dish is not souvlaki, A lot of people confuse Manolis with other Greek tavernas so I just want to clarify when you came for dinner. More

Poor service from start to finish. Food was fairly average and probably not that good value. Very noisy. Wouldn't go back in a hurry

My friend and I decided to out for dinner last minute on a Friday night. We walked in to be told the restaurant was entirely booked out, but if we wanted to wait at the bar we'd be seated ASAP (which we were). The atmosphere was friendly, including a live musician, and all of the staff were very accomodating and... More

This is a good Greek restaurant masquerading as a cheap n' cheerful taverna. The staff are friendly, service was quick and the food was good. Prices were mid-level, but it's licensed, which always add something

Casual Greek restaurant with good service. The menu is extensive with a wonderful selection of share plates. Whole sardines and chicken livers even form part of the menu. The food was good, certainly worth a visit.
