Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Four of us booked in advance for Sunday lunch. Good call. A busy place. We had some good interaction with the waitress serving us and the service and food were excellent. Given we were the last sitting, and that the chap on the table next...to us was a regular, we also had a lovely chat the the owner. Would highly recommend visiting and booking in advance. We will certainly return both for Sunday lunch and also a mid week luncheon.More

From start to finish it was amazing. We went on an evening. Staff were lovely and attentive from the minute you walked in. Checked up on us often & brought more drinks efficiently. Service was quick for our food too. Loved the starters, very tasty...& filling. Then the mains were outstanding, never had such amazing fish. I had hake & my partner had the chicken souvlaki. He loved his too. Will 100% be returning as it was an amazing place someone recommend.More

Came for Sunday Lunch as recommended by a friend. Its a smallish Cafe but comfortable seating. Could only get a booking at 2.45 pm as very busy which says it all really. Staff excellent, lots of the customers were obviously regulars. Lunch exceptional at a...reasonable price. I had the Pork which came with Crackling, Yorkshire, Roast Potato, Mashed Potato, Swede, Cauliflower and some beans/Mange Tout which was really good.My wife had Lamb (at a supplement) which was very tender. Good portions. Even though I was full really I had desert of Mango/Pineapple crumble & Custard as never tried that combination before. I also really enjoyed that. We are already making plans to go again.More

Ventured out to Virgos after far too long an absence from our previous visit. We weren’t to be disappointed. Service was fantastic, with a really warm and friendly greeting and the food was even better. There was an option for a 2/3 course set menu...as well as further options on the board with the option to mix and match. Opted for the scallops to start and these were the best I have tasted anywhere. Cooked to perfection and presented delightfully as was the pitta bread and Greek dips that the wife chose. For main we both went for a fillet steak which, again, were both cooked perfectly to our taste and served with piping hot vegetables and potatoes. A desert of crème brûlée finished the meal which was undoubtedly the best I’ve ever tasted and we left with full bellies and a good taste in the mouth. Would highly recommend and we will be back soon.More

My daughter and I have recently started to lunch frequently at Virgos on Saturdays, during the past year. Any regular already knows the special qualities that Virgos offers but for the newcomer, I wanted to see if I can persuade you to try it out...for yourself, as never has the issue of value for money been more relevant. For me, Virgos offers what can be best described as traditional charm. The decor and location helps, as does the very personal service you receive. The team are open to flexibility and are primed to go out of their way to ensure the customer has the best experience possible. The menu is pitched just about perfect - not too big to be overwhelming nor too small to be lacking suitable choice. They also include specials which also keeps things fresh and vibrant, especially for those that visit more than once.More

Very friendly staff and comfortable venue. We went for breakfast and both had “smashed avo on toast”. However it wasn’t smashed, it was grated - never seen this before! Would be glad not to see this again either - texture was unpleasant. It was also...rather dry - probably not ripe enough, and little or no lemon juice or olive oil. No chilli either. On the plus side the toast was nice!More
