“Couldn't ask for more treated like we were family”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

Greek is my favourite food so where else would I choose to go for my birthday meal. We really felt special on our visit and the owner even opened the Resturant just for a couple of bookings. We forgot to tell the owner we were vegetarian (we eat fish) but this didn't matter as the owner decided to pop out to get some more ingredients to cook something especially for us. The meze is totally amazing and it got to the point where we had to say "no more please, we are totally full" it has a real Greek atmosphere with Greek music playing too and you forget you are in Southampton. All the food is totally delicious and you must try the homemade baklava which drips in honey.

“Memories of our Greek Island holidays”
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!
