We went on a Saturday night and it was heaving. I did not know you could get so many people into a place and it not to be a tube train. On a cold night in February it was very hot in there. We were booked in but it took 30 minutes for them to take our drinks order. To... More

Went here last night as a family gathering. Top tip: YOU MUST BOOK ! It was full of families and birthdays all in a family run established restaurant so the atmosphere worked well. Lots of old photos and dimly lit. Some artwork on the walls for sale. Family of x4 with starters and alcohol came in at £149 which we... More

This was our first visit in a few years and so we were not entirely sure if it would be the same as it was in the past. The restaurant was extremely busy but we didn't have to wait long at the bar to be seated. My first course was liver in a Chasseur sauce and was very tender, complimented... More

First visit and loved it. Love the choice on the menu and multiple types of dishes such as fish,steak,Cypriot/Greek food. Service was excellent and not overwhelming in your face. Food was beautifully cooked and presented and tasted perfect in my opinion. Nothing was too much for the staff and were pleasant throughout. In my opinion a lovely restaurant and well... More

The food was simply amazing. The starters, especially the sausages, were a good size and very tasty. The haloumi was delicious. The beef stew was unlike any we have tasted before - utterly brilliant! The lamb was amazing value as it was a very good size and delicious. The decor was incredibly cosy and had the edge over other restaurants... More

A lot of people like it here but I think it is overpriced and over-rated. The breads and dips that come to the table before the meal are not free! We all dived in before realising it but nobody asked us for it. My sisters had the steaks but I had fish which was average. The thing with Yarmouth is... More
