We're in Aberystwyth for a short break. The sun, surprisingly, shone all day and the mood of the town was pretty chilled. In order to keep this chilled mood we decided Greek was the way to go.
The restaurant is very close to the beach. From upstairs you get a great view, not quite so good from downstairs. The feel was friendly as was our waitress who looked after us brilliantly.
The mixed platter of dips suited us perfectly and started the meal off well.
The mains were served, kleftico, stifado, moussaka a d souvlaki. We all dipped into each other's and decided the quality was excellent, but the moussaka was a very good call. The only complaint, no veg with the stifado or kleftico, but some might see this as a bonus.
All in all a lovely meal. Prices were totally reasonable.

A lot of interesting appetisers and starters for vegetarians - we chose tomato, garlic and chilli dip with flat bread, feta cheese mashed with chilli and feta cheese filo pasty parcels. Great flavours. The mains were a bit more pedestrian being basically a plate full of aubergine, courgette and onion stewed in tomato or fried in oil. Should just doubled up the starters!

The restaurant is located right down on the water. It has got a good atmosphere and the food is great. It's well worth a visit.

We enjoyed a family meal on holiday in Wales, at this lovely restaurant. We were shown upstairs and chose a lovely window table with a great sea view. We ate in the evening and, although children's options were only listed on the lunch menu, the children were able to order from this, and their food in particular was very good value. Our meal was lovely, we had a selection (meze) of starters, with lovely fresh bread, then stifado and stuffed peppers, fantastic. House wine was good, and the bread was to die for. Service was quiet and efficient. Only thing is, we now want to go to Greece...
