Upon entering we were greeted as though we were very good friends. The warm feeling continued with the wonderful meal. We both ordered the mousaka, and it was the best we've ever had. There was impromptu music by the host and a waitperson. We had a good wine and a yummy dessert. We will return.

This restaurant is the same place as the one that you correctly spell as Dametra Cafe. You might consider consolidating the two sets of reviews, since they refer to the same place.

Sat was a bit full and we tried to wait it out in the adjoining room but time was just too tight. Back on Sunday, still full and a short, but enjoyable wait for a table. Singing, dancing, fabulous food. It was quite simply the best overall restaurant experience we've ever had. Bravo.

A man from Jordan: Faisal and a man from Syria: Bashar have come together to offer one of the most fascinating dining experiences we have ever had. One night Faisal was the host and we not think it could ever be duplicated. The next night Bashar was working as the host and it was equally as enjoyable. These two men have come together from the other side of the globe and brought with them the best of what human beings are. During dinner they play the oud (middle east stringed instrument) and sing love songs. Later the oud is out again and the wait staff has people up dancing, smiling and loving the night. Go see what people should be like. Thank you Faisal and Bashar for the way you treated us and everyone else, two loving men!

We recently chose to eat here, based on other TA reviews. What a fabulous little restaurant this turned out to be. The hospitality shown to us was incredible, I truly felt like family. The meal was fantastic - Spanikopita, Hummus, Lamb Shank and Salmon. What a wonderful atmosphere that promotes fun and togetherness. Music and dancing throughout dinner took this to another level. Many, many thanks to the host as he has given us one of the most fantastic nights we've ever had. This truly deserves the number one ranking. I would highly recommend this cafe to everyone and anyone. C'est Magnifique!!
