This is a gem of a place which produces very good food. Good menu choice and starters can be a meal in themselves. Good service and friendly staff.

One of the most atmospheric restaurants I was ever in. Beautifully lit garden courtyard in an old building. Wide choice of meze and main dishes. The mediterranean chicken and vegetarian moussaka were very good. Despite good reviews, I was disappointed with my lamb which was...More
