“Not bad”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

This place is noisy and a bit crowded. The food is very average with the occasional good/great meal.Do not eat before you go there as you will probably order too much and have trouble eating it. The starters are the best part of the meal. They are fresh. The main is difficult to come by depending on what you order last time I ordered the kleftiko, I could not eat all of it due to the amount of fat which was quite sickening and also that I had eaten too much of the starters. The dessert is average and most are chilled and are given to you from the display when you walk in.

Overall not too bad a restaurant.

“Go on a empty stomach!!!”
Reviewed 11 May 2010

Booked the blue olive for a joint birthday celebration. We booked it for a Tuesday night, the resturant was quiet and was shown to a table immediately.
We ordered a Meze for 4 and the starters were faultless. They were fresh and plentiful. The fish was nice but the only fault was the lamb in the meat part of the Meze. It was very dry but the chicken and pork was delicous and so were the shefdalia.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and would definately be back.
