“Memories of our Greek Island holidays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

So pleased I checked Tripadvisor before our day trip to Southampton as we may not have spotted this little independent restaurant. The owner and waitress were very friendly and welcoming and the food was tasty and authentic. The lunch Meze was great value and so large we came away with a doggy bag for our supper. The rustic chairs, lace table covers and knick knacks add to the ambiance, the only thing missing was Greek music, τζίτζικας and a view of the sea!

“This is a Genuine GREEK FOOD Restaurant of Excellence in the heart of Southampton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Over the years my wife Anna and I have visited this Restaurant many times over and have seen it grow. We have also celebrated my brother-in-law Joe's 50th birthday here with 50 invited guests enjoying thoroughly good Greek food and service with a smile. We also celebrated our Mum and Dad's 50th wedding anniversary here too. All food is prepared and cooked in a custom designed kitchen in the rear of the restaurant which you can watch if you wish. A light back- ground of Greek music playing always takes your memories back to your holidays in Greece as you enjoy your delightful meal and a glass of wine. You could be forgiven for driving past this restaurant as its so easily missed but next time make an effort to stop here, you wont be disappointed and still have change in you pocket. Mike & Anna McAllister

“Great service and excellent food!”

We really enjoyed the authentic Greek food as well as the wonderful service which you could hardly find nowadays. Mousakka is our favourite and the price is very reasonable. We will definitely come back again.
