One of my best friends and I went here to celebrate. She's a vegetarian and there were plenty of options for her to choose from. The chef was out and about speaking to all of the diners which was also a nice touch.

The menu isn't extensive but this is good, authentic Greek-Cypriot food. We had the mixed starters which were all good. The Armenian dumplings were described as spicy and tasted fantastic though they were indeed spicy. The whole fish (bream) that evening was superb. Haven't eaten...More
