“Super family run restaurant and bar”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Alexes grill bar offers a fantastic selection of home cooked food from traditional greek to english to other nationalities. Whatever you choose to eat it is always of fantastic quality, cooked by Alex's (the owner's) wife Amelia. The food was very good value for money, the main courses coming with half a carafe of wine.

We had many children's meals off the menu but also asked if they would do a child's portion of the greek meals which was done without a problem. Also, when asked if the chips, served with most meals, could be substituted with an alternative this again caused no problem, Nothing was too much trouble.

The service was excellent whether it be by Alex himself, Eric his good english friend or Anna his youngest daughter.

There was always a good atmosphere in the restaurant, especially on the greek dancing night, which was done by Alex and Anna. Customer participation is a must on these nights and great fun.

The restaurant is excellent for families, groups or couples alike.

Alex has an African Grey parrot called Charlie who my children loved. They also liked going out to his garden to play on the swings and slide.

Altogether, an excellent restaurant all round.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

Visited 4 times during our two week stay. Every meal was delicious and the half carafe of wine that came with the specials was good too. Saturday night was good with the greek dancing with alex and his lovely daughter. Lovely family run restaurant.

“Excellent customer service and great value and free hospitality”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Ok not to sure where to start but wow....me and my partner have spent 2 weeks in Sidari and although we come out full board with our hotel we have spent a good 8 days of our holiday eating with the lovely and very friendly old chap called Eric and the must see Charlie the talking African grey parrot they have.

The food I couldn't get enough off only thing really stopping me was finances from eating and trying the whole menu..my personal favourites was in no order but apple pie and strawberry ice cream...hmmmm just wish the ice cream scoops was a little bigger from a greedy perspective, fried prawns with rice was great and when I asked for a little more sauce it was no problem.,moussaka & stifado was not only eaten on site but we asked for a portion to be taken home to eat at our own leisure in the morning and Kleftiko was so tender and well stewed in my opinion and as a English/french chef myself I truly value good food and to know it was home made and not frozen gave it more of a truly unique taste.

On our last night it was finished off by Alex and who I believe was his daughter doing a greek performance which apparently will be live on youtube as the guests sitting next to us said they would be uploading it and cant wait...only thing that really ruined it for us was a table that was seeming extremely difficult with the old man as they was just complaining from the start and on arrival was telling us they had a bad day so made us feel a little uncomfortable having earlier spoken with them.

Only negative thing I can really say is that it wasn't close enough to our hotel and for this reason we had not discovered it sooner

10/10 from us!!!!!! if you ever open a branch id like a job in your kitchen to learn the secrets!!!
