Been here a few times as its round the corner and best one round here which says a lot as its not great . Everything is ok but it should be a lot better . Greek food is all about quality and careful cooking and seasoning . Their poorest effort is on the barbecued meat which is very hit and miss . Always have to ask for pork and chicken to be juicy and not dry . They just need to get their standards up . They should go to other better greek restaurants to see how it cn be done .

Really disappointed as expected better for a Greek restaurant that appears elegent. Food was badly presented and seem to go for quality rather than quantity. The staff made no effort to appologise for lack of quality, eg, very dry and mousaka and thrown together, solid, tirmasiu.

Won't be going back as a total waste of money. Very expensive for a bad experience!
