We tried this the first night we were in the bay. Unfortunately the restaurant was very quiet but I would suspect that is because it's difficult to find. Make an effort though, this is the best restaurant for evening dining in the area. There was...More

This was our fourth time at BTT and it never disappoints- it's position on the canals is perfect and you feel relaxed immediately-settle in for a long lunch ! It's got really great atmosphere and of course the food is delicious. Service is perfect and...More

We had a lovely meal here. There are lots of specials in addition to the menu. We had a prawn and a dolmades starter. The dolmades was a bit too salty (the vine leaves are soaked in seawater, maybe they need a rinse before use!)...More

Probably not the most authentic Greek food and service a little slow (not so much the food, more being given menus, taking our order and bringing the bill), but it was busy and was nice nevertheless. We had dolmades (stuffed vine leaves) and halloumi to...More

We are repeat customers having visited here at least 4 times over the last 6+ years. This time we were in a larger group and sat inside. The experience wasn't as positive as previous visits. The restaurant was incredibly busy and noise was almost unbearable....More
