Possibly found a new favourite restaurant. Being gluten intolerant it can be hard at times when eating out but the waitress was more than helpful and the chef or owner came out twice to assist with food selection and alternatives as we ordered a banquet. The food was delicious, so fresh and plenty of it. We had the $40 banquet... More

There's nothing I will criticize about this resto and there's also nothing to praise so it fits very nicely in the realm of average. The service was probably the best aspect of our evening. Would I return? If there were other restaurants available to try then probably not. I had the chicken souvlaki, others the lamb and one seafood. Everyone's... More

However having booked and had my booking confirmed 8 days previously (9 adults and an infant) we had no booking and therefore WE must have made a mistake. They ABSOLUTELY NO BOOKING FOR US and so it must have been our mistake. He personally checked all of the bookings himself and therefore it MUST be true, The 'gentleman' who informed... More

The food was served quickly. With the mixed dip platter you are served bread which is very similar to a cut up French stick. if you want... More

As always we loved the food and vibe at the restaurant. Went on a Saturday with close friends, service = friendly, food = lovely, atmosphere = great, cost = acceptable. This was our 6th visit with various friends and business associates and always gets a thumbs up .

If you want traditional Greek tavern like meals, ie not restaurant style, then Lindos is the best in the whole area by far. Great tasting. Never fatty. Never oily. Never expensive

$75 for a piece of rubber-like saganaki, tasteless mousaka, average unseasoned lamb gyros and a couple of glasses of flat coke. Service average, stuffed up bill and stood over whilst eating.. Awkward and uncomfortable! Will not be back

It seems that Greek restaurants copy each other's menus. I can't see anything outstanding here. They should really take a leaf out of the menus restaurants in the Plaka in Atrhens -- stick to some good, popular dishes, cook them well, charge moderate prices and serve inexpensive retsina in one litre aluminium jugs. Greek food is not difficult to make,... More

This restaurant is always busy at weekends, so a booking is a good idea and we were pleased to get a table on a Friday. The banquet menus offer a range of favorites - dips, seafood, a selection of meat and Greek sausages, as well as Greek salad and these can all be ordered seperately from the menu. Traditional and...
