Our main was the daily special of grilled snapper - huge and enough for us to... More

Whilst the menu has the usual range of souvlakis I had the slow cooked goat and roast spuds. True home style cooking. The staff were excellent, new their menu and offered... More

A gourmet touch of truly authentic Greek cuisine in an amazing cozy atmosphere! The food has never disappointed! Words cannot do justice... P.S.: if you hear barking from the kitchen it's the owner, John, funniest guy you'll meet and great person!
