Came spare of the moment and I couldn't fault the service or food. The food was amazing and very ample and good value for money for what you get. I'll remember not to eat so much of the starters next time! I felt comfortable and happy. We did visit on a Thursday evening though. Parking is difficult but that is... More

We booked a table for two for a pre theatre meal . After reading some of the recent reviews we were a bit unsure of what to expect. We need not have worried. We received a warm welcome, the place is clean and tidy and we did not find the tables too close together. The wine was reasonably priced as... More

Please do not waste your time and money going to this restaurant. It is very dated. Paper napkins stuffed in the wine glasses. There were 10 of us cramped onto a table that should have seated 8 at the most. the food was below average. My husband ordered T Bone steak and was not given a steak knife. He had... More

Enjoyed the food but visited on a Saturday night and it was very crowded and table are too close together. Hard to have a conversation when so close to other tables. Noise levels were very loud.

Visited for Sunday lunch today with a large group of friends. Fabulous food, generous portions and friendly staff. Lots of choice on the menu. Some of us had the meze, fabulous and great value. Will make sure return and introduce other friends.

Simple, smart restaurant with a menu of classic Greek dishes, plus live music most evenings. The food is excellent and very plentiful. Thats why I have put 3 for 4, meaning if you order 3 dishes it will serve 4. The meze is so good and big that we ended up taking plenty home in doggy bags for a full... More
