A typically decorated Greek restaurant with a typical menu. Don’t be fooled by the tatty outside this place is worth the walk to find it, it’s set back from the street and easy to miss. We had the sharing starter platter that was excellent, then a variety of mezze dishes, the aubergine and potato dishes were particularly good. The orange dessert was spectacular. Staff were friendly and the place was busy for a week night. A hidden gem.

Great food Great atmosphere. Only downside it's North Wales and the local diners breaking out into their own language giving the beady unwelcome eye is off putting. Staff very friendly shame about the locals.

On a visit to Caernarfon we stumbled on a Greek restaurant and other than in Greece we’ve never been to one. It didn’t open till 18:30 and we were early so found a bar to kill some time. In the bar we spoke to a nice local chap and asked if he’d been to the ouzo and Olives and his reply was. We’ve tried on meany occasion and never been able to get in . So we were thinking we’re waiting for nothing. Anyway we did manage to get a table. The food and service was second to none. We had the set menu £15 each and there was plenty of delicious and piping hot food.

Simply furnished restaurant with decorative shells and fishing nets on the walls. The menu offers a range of meze dishes. We chose the set meze which is £15 per person (minimum of 2 people) and very good value. The service was friendly and efficient. We started with cold meze dishes which included houmous, butter beans in a tomato sauce (fasolia), dolmades and tzatziki. I especially enjoyed the houmous and butter beans. This was followed by large rings of tender breaded calamari, whitebait, falafel and, my favourite, filo pastry parcels filled with feta (tiropita). Then came the meat meze which included grilled chicken skewers, meatballs and stifado (beef with tender sweet onions). It was all fresh and delicious. Delightful meal full of gorgeous Greek flavours in the centre of Caernarfon. Recommended.
