My favourite restaurant in colchester. I go there as a treat. Great customer service and the food never disappoints. Book in advance as they get really busy. Recommend anyone to go. The swordfish steak is to die for

The food was lovely. Had some dips and pitta followed by beef Stifado and my girlfriend had lamb kleftiko. However portions were just so big it was silly! Hate to waste food. It would be just as good if the portions were half the size....More

There would be no problem with children included. The restaurant is not big so make sure you book well in advance to make sure you can all be fitted in, I am sure you will enjoy your meal.
