This family run greek restaurant has long been one of our favourites,initially in Blacksmiths yard,we have been enjoying its authentic cuisine for 25 years.Though now in larger premises they have managed to maintain the comfortable family atmosphere.Anyone with a good appetite should try the mezze for a lovely selection of flavours.
Friday night there is often live music featuring an electric Bazuki,quite an experience,with music ranging from traditional greek tunes to eric clapton!

We went here for the first time a few days ago. It is a small place that opens out behind towards the kitchen area BUT is very intimate. Never having been to Greece I do not know how authentic the meals are BUT they are very tasty and served with flair and as much information about the food as you could ever need.

We had a three course meal - starting with hot smoked ham which was exquisite. This was accompanied by a Greek salad, pita bread and a couple of dips, all of which were very tasty. My main course was beef and to accompany this we had a bottle of very smooth red. The food was NOT nouvelle cuisine being presented very plainly but effectively. This was beef cubes and rice with other vegetables. If anything the portions were on the large side and certainly defeated my wife.

Suite was baklava which was not as sweet as some and all the better for that.

The proprietor was very informative, talking about the dishes what they contained how they were produced etc. which all made for a very good evening.

On Saturday evening there is live music but we did not experience this as we were there on a Friday.

Six of us went on Saturday 18 January 2014 after reading the reviews on here and all we can say is it is a must if you enjoy Greek food and good entertainment. The food was excellent, three of us had the mezze and had to get the other three who had had different meals to help us eat it in the end, there was that much!!! Every bodies plates were empty when they went back to the kitchen and everyone was fully stuffed of fantastic tasting food. One of the waiters became the entertainment and what a laugh he was, his interaction with the restaurant audience was brilliant and had people up dancing and enjoying themselves. I would say not one person walked out of the restaurant that evening disappointed. I think, you would have to check, that the entertainment is only a Saturday night, but if you're looking for a good authentic Greek meal this is the place to go. The atmosphere was brilliant with us all saying goodbye to our fellow diners, where does that normally happen!!!

We went here for a staff christmas party and we were all very happy with the service the food and the entertainment. All the dishes were delicious, no complaints from anyone even the vegetarias! Service was very quick and the singing and dancing was great. Will definitely be going back very soon! Recommend this place highly.
