We visited during lunch on a Thursday and the cafe was pleasantly full. The waiter brought us some wonderful warm bread to start. I ordered The Great Greek salad which is a Greek salad and gyro meat. The gyro meat was thicker than the typically thin sliced style, which gave it a richer taste. My friend ordered the mussels which... More

This Med inspired restaurant is owned and run by two very fun gentlemen. There is live music and dancing among the diners, so beware that you could find yourself doing a belly dance between courses.

Fun place. Good Mediterranean food. The lentil soup was fantastic. The hummas was good. It was a great place to celebrate a bday. It was my second time there. I will return

We had no idea that this would turn out to be delicious and fun! All the way from the fantastic wine list to the,over the top dessert! There was also music,... More

Had a lovely lunch here, very tasty high quality sandwich and the biggest glass of wine I've ever been served. A big highlight was when the chef came out and sung to us all. Definitely recommend the restaurant.

We enjoyed a great meal, with great wines, and spontaneous singing and dancing. The owners clearly love what they do, and went all out to make sure we had a wonderful experience. So glad we went - would highly recommend.
