The group of four (including a Greek Uni student) decided to enjoy some really good Greek food together. After starting the evening with Ouzo, we decided on Mezze, which was a selection of mall dishes containing many types of foods. All of the foods were wonderful and the best thing was that they just kept on arriving on our table.... More

Lots of old photos and dimly lit. Some artwork on the walls for sale. Family of x4 with starters and alcohol came in at £149 which we... More

The restaurant was extremely busy but we didn't have to wait long at the bar to be seated. My first course was liver in a Chasseur sauce and was very tender, complimented... More

First visit and loved it. Love the choice on the menu and multiple types of dishes such as fish,steak,Cypriot/Greek food. Service was excellent and not overwhelming in your face. Food was beautifully cooked and presented and tasted perfect in my opinion. Nothing was too much for the staff and were pleasant throughout. In my opinion a lovely restaurant and well... More
