I recently went for lunch here with some friends, they had been several times before for dinner and rated the place. The evening early bird is offered at lunch times and for about a tenner for two courses is decent value,
The restaurants name is a pretty heavy clue to the decor and menu however it felt a little like dining in a Co-op travel branch! I had the garlic mushrooms as a starter, pretty uninspired and bland frankly, a reasonably sized portion of button mushrooms in an olive oil garlic sauce but that was it, no gratin, no stuffing, no cheese no herbs and not served with any bread = uninspiring.
For my main I had a mixed Pitta, to my surprise the Chicken and Pork were served on the plate with a seemingly homemade flat bread cut into quarters and accompanied by a salad. I'd kind of expected a 'filled' pitta and was therefore a little disappointing, this may be the way it's done in Greece but if so a better menu description may be useful? ( no pocket in the pitta? that's a first!) All in all, for a reminder of your holiday, great. For a scintillating culinary experience maybe not. Please don't be put off, do try!

We visited Go Greek last Tuesday with our 6 year old daughter. We cannot believe the mixed reviews this restaurant has received . The food was absolutely amazing, the service was second to none, the atmosphere was perfect. A big thank you to all at Go Greek for a fantastic evening, the next time we visit Blackpool, this restaurant will be top of our list.

I like this place & have championed it before...BUT... made a visit last month & was really not impressed. I took a party on a Saturday night which saw the restaurant fairly busy, but they seemed to be struggling with the numbers: long wait for some dishes & the quality wasn't up to their usual high standard. Staff were abrupt & clearly busy: but, hey, don't be ungrateful: that's how you make your money: if you're having to work too hard, take on more staff, don't fret it with your customers because they just might stop coming back...

You're not running NASA here, just a simple, Greek kitchen: it should not be too difficult to provide a pleasant service for customers who are providing your livelihood...

Decided to visit Go Greek due to the extensive vegetarian offerings on the menu.

We received a warm welcome and shown to a table in what can only be described as a well marinated, very lean restaurant.

The menu offers an extensive range of Greek dishes and the early bird offer is great value.

The food was very good and despite a problem in the kitchen meaning that we had to wait 15 to 20 minutes between starters and main courses the restaurant owner kept us fully informed of what was happening and provided a round of drinks free of charge due to the inconvenience.

Overall the food quality was superb and was great value for money.

Just been for a lovely meal at go greek. 4 adults and 2 children. The adults all had the meze which was amazing. Dips and greek salad to start, followed by fried halloumi cheese, spinach and cheese pastries and minced pork rolls. Then chicken and pork souvlaki. Finally we shared 2 kleftico( lamb shanks). I have to say I can not understand anyone saying that there was not enough food. We were stuffed and unable to manage dessert. The staff were friendly.
The children both had chicken souvlaki which was also good and plentiful.
