Again another of Reading resto, this one is located in Prospect Street in Caversham.
We went there around 2000hrs without reservation...no tables in the main dining area..the owner told us to come back in 1/2hour..so we did go for a drink in the Hope next door and came back around 2030hrs.The owner had set a small table for three in the back. We right away ordered our dinner, I had some Kotolettes Grilled cutlets of lamb flavoured with rosemary , we ordered some red wine False Bay Pinotage, South Africa all very good.
The owner is nice and very active running around all the tables..but the place is very small indeed, peoples sitting less than two feet from you on the next table, last night the resto was packed and extremely noisy unbearable to my poor ears, we could not talked to each other.
The smoke alarm went off as the all resto was filled by smoke ( lamb or beef on the grill in the kitchen)..
Right, so if you want to go there book in advance (and bring ear plugs).
But otherwise the food is great and the owner very serviable.

One of the best Greek restaurants I have ever been to. The place has a very nice ambiance and the food is absolutely fantastic!

Simple and clean décor but the lighting a little harsh. When for the authentic meze, described as a real feast and by quantity it was. There were plenty of courses but we did have a bit of a wait before the lamb and it was over cooked if a little burnt. The restaurant was nearly full but the staffing level was thin. Had trouble completing the final course, as the volume of food had just overwhelmed me. Over all for the price, the quality was not just there but I guess they tried to make that up with the quantity, but that is not why I went.

Having lived and worked in both Cyprus and Greece, found the menu rather lacking. Food was dry, atmosphere not too authentic. Shame as we could do with a decent Greek restaurant locally.
