One of our favourite places to eat and spend an evening. Great food, a good atmosphere and Andreas is a wonderful host. Spending the evening at this taverna is like being on holiday for the evening. A lovely way to spend a relaxed evening enjoying good food, especially the kleftiko. An experience we like to repeat whenver we can.

We came here as a group of 9 people and were welcomed in a very friendly manner. I think it was the owner who served us through the night.

The selection is impressive and I chose the scampi to start, which was tasty and filling. I then could not resist moussaka for main course and this was one of the best I have every eaten.

The bill was not bad for what we all had. I will definitely return and also recommend.

Three of us had very good starters (two different sorts of Greek sausage, as well as humous (plus extras of taramasalata and Greek yogurt on the house - lovely service) then kleftiko, dolmades and afelia (grilled pork pieces) with rice & salad. It was a Saturday so towards the end of the evening the owner provided live bouzouki music with lots of audience participation. The wine list could be better - both the bottles of red we had were a bit on the light-bodied side for our taste - but you can't have everything.

We had a table for two on a Saturday night. The restaurant has a very nice feel to it, very Greek and welcoming. We had the meat mezze and it was fantastic. So many dishes and all so tasty! We have visited Greece many times and have Greek friends, so we are familiar with Greek food. The food at this taverna did not disappoint. The evening was filled with live music by a very entertaining musician. Lots of laughter and clapping and good feeling among the audience. Very friendly chef/owner, too, who pops out of his kitchen now and then and chats. A great night out! Go there and try it.

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.
