“A great find in Bayswater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

Our daughter was in Summer In The City at Alexandra Palace and we were staying at the Grand Plaza Apartments in Bayswater so we visit Trip Adviser to find a lovely restaurant for a late lunch and what a find! A fabulous Greek Restaurant serving the most exciting fresh Greek food - delicious starters of calamari and taramasalata and then the mains of kalafdico and Moussaka - freshly cooked and so delicious. This was a lovely Sunday treat in Bayswater - and deserves its Trip Adviser place.

“very disappointing meal, not recommended”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

We booked this restaurant for my birthday, as we just had a holiday in Santorini and loved the food there.

The food were very average, far far from the taste of food we had in Greece. The fava (peas puree) was very bland and tasteless. The moussaka was also very greasy and bland.

The service could have improved loads. We ordered quite a few starters and have asked about the portion of food. We were never told at any point that we have over ordered for two people. Normally in a restaurant you'd be advised about the portion and whether you ordered too much/too little. So after starters were served, we were suggested to box up one of the main, without even seeing what it looked like, as there were way too much food for two people. The grilled chicken main we later had at home tasted awful, just some dry overcooked big chunk of chicken pieces.

I also asked them to recommend a local Greek wine that tastes fruity and sweet. The waitress serving us had no knowledge of their wine list when we asked for her advice and I ended up had a glass of very bitter wine, which I only managed to had a sip. So a waste on that front.

Overall a very disappointing birthday meal, with tasteless food and disappointing service.

“Good Greek Food and Wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

We had a family party here last Friday and really enjoyed the experience. The menu was typical Greek and beer and wine from both Cyprus and Greece. We had the set menus which also included a vegetarian option. And some special dietary needs were well catered for. Service was friendly, although it sometimes took a while to get served, probably due to the large size of our group. Based on today's TripAdvisor ranking, Santorini is in the top two percent of all London restaurants. Not quite sure about that, but we will gladly recommend this restaurant to friends.

“Friendly and inviting.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Ate at this restaurant during our stay in London. We found the staff to be really friendly and polite. The decor is Mediterranean and feels like we were dining out is Greece! The food reinforced that feeling, we ordered some calamari to start which were lovely and had lamb and a vegetarian dish for our mains. We also had spanekopita which were excellent. The homemade chips were really tasty, the vegetarian dish slightly bland and over cooked but was ok. If you are vegetarian you are not spoilt for choice.
The prices are reasonable and portions are extremely generous, we spent £50 for a meal for two Inc. Soft drinks.
