Don't be fooled. From the outside this may just look like someone's house but as you step through the door and take in the smells you are led into a very passable Greek taverna setting. The decor and atmosphere were great, most tables were full and the food was very authentic. I had tzatziki, followed by Kleftiko and my wife had Kalamari and the house chicken dish. The food was delicious and portions generous. We visit Derby occasionally and will be visiting every time now we know it is here. An excellent way to bring back those holiday memories.

My husband and I visited this restaurant last night & we were very impressed. The atmosphere is typical Greek & it makes you feel like your on holiday.
We both had a starter of halloumi & warm pitta bread & dips. The main courses were really big portions. We didn't finish them. I had stuffed vine leaves with rice. I got 7 vine leaves all were the length of my middle finger. We ordered a side portion of chips which were not needed at all.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant. We would definitely be going back soon.

We ate here whilst on a city break. We love all things Greek and could not get in on Saturday night and were told they were always extremely busy, so we went on a Sunday night and fell in love with the place.

The restaurant is done out to resemble a real Greek taverna, and having been to many Greek Islands over the years, it was spot on. Greek music was playing throughout the evening.

The waiter (who was actually of Italian descent!) was very attentive and recommended the mezze. This is what we went for and it was absolutely gorgeous. There was so much there, it came out perfectly timed, and of the highest quality. The owner and chef came out on occasions and at the end of the evening ended up having a conversation with us. It turns out he is from Cyprus and he made us feel very welcome and was very interesting to talk to.

All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to lovers of Greek food.

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!
