As mentioned by others on here, do check the bill. We were on table pounder so should have had 30% taken off at the till, it wasn't and we had to mention it. It... More

I visited this restaurant several times with friends, sharing some plates and having a main individually. All of us enjoyed her/his choice like moussaka, skewers, lamb or stew. There is a nice atmosphere, the staff is really friendly and helpful so you feel as you were dinning in Greece. The tradicional Greek music to finish the night is the icing... More

Advert outside saying happy hour with free mezze - the first drinks were cheaper but no mezze! Ordered beers and bottled placed on table still with tops on! Had to use wine glasses to drink beer. Food finally ordered and arrived - some ok but very hit and miss. Beef stew had been around some time and was rather crusty.... More
