Kolossi Grill is very close to my office, so some coworkers and I decided to give it a try for lunch. We went for the £7 lunch meal, which sounds like very good value. I ordered hummus and chicken kebab. The hummus was very bland, I had to put a lot of salt on it in order to taste anything,... More

went for the "3 course" set price lunch. For £7 we got a bowl of Olives, peppers and carrots, a choice of Hummus, Taramasalata, soup or Tzatziki for starter, a choice for main course including grilled trout with fried potatoes, kebabs and rice (don't remember if there was a veggie meal but there might be something on the main menu...

This place was packed at a weekday lunchtime. The reason seems to be a £6 three course meal. It is advertised on the wall but not on the menu and we were not informed. The result was that we spent £60 for 2 (without service) on a full 3 course meal with wine and coffee. Still very enjoyable and I... More

We have enjoyed every visit to the Kolossi Grill. Our last visit was no exception. We are always given a very friendly welcome, so with delicious food we always look... More

Food was cheap and tasty but the staff ruined it. Our waiter (male, middle aged) kept making silly jokes about me not finishing my food and pinching the cheeks of my colleague, a 32 year old woman, as though he were talking to a 3 year old. Really unacceptable behaviour - no idea how it's not been nipped yet.

This icon in Rosebery Avenue has been serving Greek Cypriot food for more than 30 years and Harry has now been in charge for more than 25 years. I have had the pleasure of many meals here in the last 27 years and never once has the standard been anything other than excellent. They survived the departure of the Guardian... More

Family meal out with mixed result. We ordered 2 whole grilled chickens which was moist and cooked to perfection. I ordered a mixed grill which was unfortunately dry and overcooked. Being a regular visitor to Greece I was also surprised to see lettuce included in the Greek salad. Overall I would rather recommend trying one of the funky restaurants around... More

A big warm welcome and a delicious meal. I had salmon which was very fresh and delicious with some rice and veggies; a good healthy homely meal. Also Cyprus relaxed atmosphere to chill me out after a long days work.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
