We visited on a Friday night, there was live entertainment and the food was very tasty. Feels like a family run business and the service was spot on.

My parents are big Greek food fans so when they visited us we booked simply Greek. Glad we did. All four of us were really impressed. Service was fantastic. Food was wonderful.

We were visiting our half Greek granddaughter over a Sunday and Monday. As this place was closed on a Monday we booked for Sunday evening, we were a bit concerned that the kitchen closes at eight on Sundays but arriving before 7.30 is no problem, the live music finishes at 6 pm but there was still a good atmosphere.

six of us visited Simply Greek today, the table was prebooked and we had all looked forward to a family meal together. It was a very cold day and the inside of the restaurant was freezing probably not much warmer than outside. we could not get warm to the point that the youngest in the party 7yrs old went to...

Came here before a trip to theatre and we were well impressed. Atmosphere was great with traditional Greek decor and music being played. Staff were extremely friendly welcolming and attentive without being over the top. Food is amazing and very reasonably priced we ordered off the special 3 course menu £9.99 and we're not disappointed. Could not fault anything on... More

Great ambience, very attentive staff and most importantly exceptional food at reasonable prices. Far better than Kefeneon a couple of doors along the road.

We went as a group of six and had booked a couple of weeks earlier. Table was ready, we ordered the meat mezes and the food and drinks all came very quickly. The food tasted wonderful, the entertaining staff were fun and the greek dancing was a bonus. We felt we had a really good meal for a sensible price... More

As an expert in Mediterranean food, I find this place below average. This includes the food, the service and the entertainment. In brief this place is both overestimated and overpriced.

The service wasn't very good, the mezze was a small portion, the food wasn't tasty, not quite authentic, expensive in terms of value for money

Great smells when you arrive and the friendly welcome is followed through by all the staff. I enjoyed a lamb dish here which was cooked and presented really well. Other meals on offer looked really good too. Good selection of Greek oriented drinks - staff are helpful in recommending if you're not sure what to have. It's worth booking ahead... More
