“Nice drink on the house”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

Have been to this resturant last year. I had the same moussaka but was a little dry this time , salad was nice , pitta bread in basket, portion of chips .hubby had lamb kofta which was lamb shank with onion tomato sauce . 1 bottle lager and a coke came to over £30 was offered free brandy or oozo on the house which was nice
meal average not so nice this time.
Table by the door draughty when customers could not shut it would not like to sit there in winter ..

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013 via mobile

Visited with my husband and another couple. Restaurant is nice but very small with lots of tables squeezed in so you feel like your sitting with everyone else in there. Was there half an hour before receiving our first drink, which was wrong. After an hour we got our starters and was told our main (kleftiko) which 3 of us ordered had ran out so we had to choose something else. I only had pitta & a dip for starter which was ok. For our mains we had a lamb tava which was very watery & so was the rice. There was no taste to the food, very bland, and we do really enjoy Greek food! Our friend had moussaka which he said was also bland and didn't eat it.
We were very disappointed as we thought its a lovely little place and nothing else like it in the area. The staff are friendly but with only 3 of them working they get rushed & get things wrong. A real shame about the food, tastes like nothing!

“Proper Cypriot food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

As a lover of Cypriot food, we tried Stavros in Newquay, we was a little dubious due to its prime location in Newquay on the clubbing strip, however the food was very authentic and the atmosphere friendly. I was slightly disappointed with the lack of pitta bread offered throughout our meze and a little dissapoinred with the selection of fish that was given, the whitebait inparticular was dissapointing and overly fishy In taste. However the rest was very enjoyable and would probably return, (maybe not on a Saturday night ).

“Pleasant staff/Manager - average food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

The staff were pleasant but the food didn't have the wow factor. Meatball starters were about the best thing we had, the dolmades were very thin and over-vinegary. The rice was quite watery and the lamb had little flavour. We were quite disappointed as this is a nice looking little restaurant with a nice feel to it - pity about the food really - unless we just picked the wrong thing to eat that night.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

We enjoyed a bottle of Retsina in the window seat, only overlooking the road but still nice to watch the world go by whilst enjoying our meal. The souvlaki were delicious as was the keftiko. Good food at a great price. Very friendly staff but a shame they weren't greek - lithuanian and cypriot.
