Surprisingly not busy at all when we were there. We shared a very nice platter of 4 dips with pita and flat bread. 3 of the dips - sun dried tomato and basil hummus, baba ghanoush and olive tapenade - were quite good. The regular hummus had way, way too much garlic. We also shared the Moroccan sea bass with... More

I order a port wine, 2 ginger ale, 1 Diet Coke for drinks. Ordered a 400g rib eye steak to share, a Camembert grape salad and another appetizer. All are good and the price is about USD $60.00 The place is quite nice with open kitchen and location is in the city center. Will come again.

This seems to be a very hot spot with those looking to impress or those on a first date. I was just looking for a years. Massive portions of very good food. I will go back but with someone I am trying to impress, not when I am looking for drunk food. Service was extraordinary, so were the prices. Not... More

Delicious food - big portions! In hindsight would have skipped the appetizer or shared the main course! Very attentive staff. Couldn't ask for more!

Had enough of SE-Asian Cuisine for now? Then go see sthe Skewers. Nice restaurant with an excellent wine-list and european menu. Prices a bit higher than in an usual vietnamese restaurant but still cheap enough for foreigners! Had the best mousakka there...

Visited a couple of times, 2 years after our first visit. The food was excellent; tried squid skeweres, saffron chicken, spanakopita, saganaki, babaganoush, and the lamb shank. Particularly the shank and spanakopita would have featured proudly at the best Greek restaurants, easily! Service was good, efficient and polite and the environment great. Highly recommended!
