Some of the best Greek food that I've ever had (and I've eaten a lot!) Wonderful service too. We ate here twice in a week and would recommend the moussaka, kleftiko and stuffed vegetables.

We really enjoyed the hospitality and the service in this place. The wine leaves were amazing and great White House wine. Eat the yogurt and jam.

Might be a bit harsh judging the entire restaurant on one dish, but if a Greek taverna can't make a decent Moussaka then in my opinion there's something seriously wrong. I consider myself something of an authority on moussaka as it's my favourite Greek dish...More
