“Wedding reception that was a dream come true...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

We held a very successful private birthday party here so when we got married, Estia was the natural choice. Andreanna helped us thoughout the planning and organising and made it extremely easy for us. We were able to arrange a very good friend to perform live music on the day, booked a meze for our guests and delivered the cake the day before. Well, we couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate. A warm welcome was offered to the whole wedding party, everyone looked after, and the food just didn't stop coming. And what food?!? It was AMAZING!!! Quality was superb and selection great. Pita bread and dips, meatballs, rice, stuffed vine leaves, greek salad (best one I have ever had), stifado, kleftico, little roast potatoes, all yummy! All agreed that it was fine fare. I was lucky enough to see my 94 year old Dad dance with his 90 year old wife too. Thank you to all at Estia for a fantastic time, you helped provide many special memories.

“If it was by the sea you would think it was Greece”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Amazing food and service. Ordered the mezza and extras the owner advised that was too much and she was right. Lovely mix of food served at a relaxed pace for a relaxed meal. Food came as they were ready and was a surprise which turned up. Wine was nice. Not been here for 5 years and it's just as good and we will be going back soon. Book if a large party. If you want a posh fancy restaurant this isn't for you. If you want a clean lovely reminder of a holiday go.

“Very authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Having lived in Cyprus for a couple of years when I was younger, I had high expectations and this place delivered in spades. Very authentic Cypriot food, excellent Mezze and a good selection. Vey reasonable price wise too. Friendly and cheerful staff.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Went to brighton for my birthday. We noticed this restaurant on our last trip and thought we'd try it. We did have to eat early so we were the only one's in there so no atmosphere. We ordered a meze starter which was ok but a bit bland. My husband had pork sovlaki for main and i had swordfish, unfortunately both were dry and overcooked. I really wanted to enjoy this restaurant and my birthday but i'm afaid i didn't. All in all not very good value for money.
