“The Lantern Taverna, best family friendly greek restaurant in London?”
Reviewed 15 July 2009

Located near Ealing Common tube, so easy to get to. This was for a celebratory night and boy was it a great choice. Very welcoming place and quite quirky with things hanging from the ceiling and a bit of a mish mash of items on walls etc. The toilets get a special mention and you may spend longer in there than usual. However, I'd spoil it if i say any more!

We went for a meze and the children tried lots of new things; including whitebait and calamari. Paper and crayons were also provided to keep them entertained.

Live musician came on with guitar at just the right time and did covers of James Taylor, Elton John etc. Good guitarist, but couldn't hear him speak between songs properly. Enjoying the wine too much maybe.

For pudding the children got a bag of sweets (parents were asked first if this was okay) . Adults also got sweets! Plus a strange swiss roll sugary thing. They then had a great time throwing beer bottle caps at a giant magnet. Staff helped them along and gave a very large trophy to the winner. Trophy had to stay there though.

Overall, food was good, but the atmosphere and the staff were brilliant and this is what made the night and would return again without hesitation. Very suprised it wasn't already reviewed on tripadvisor.
