The food was very good, all the staff worked as a team, so we were well looked after, as it is across the road from the Princess of Wales theatre, it is an ideal place to eat before going to a play.

I came here with a colleague for an evening meal while working in town.

It's a bright and airy place with a good menu and keen prices. My main of shrimp and calamari salad was good with freshly cooked seafood but nothing special.

I went for the rice pudding dessert which was stodgy and lacked flavour, a shame really.

Service was a touch brusque.

I'd eat here again but wouldn't rush back.

Terrible service, rude manager. Seem to prefer a certain class of clientele and belittle others. was told it was it was part of Greek culture to discriminate. Some guest get their food in priority and other have to wait longer. Very discriminatory restaurant, will never go back.

A group of us (14 at 2 tables) like to gather for lunch at Penelope's for lunch before heading to the TSO. We have always had good to great service. This time the service was terrible (Mohhamed). Almost missed the start of the concert because we couldn't get the waiter to figure out our bills. (Because of the size of our group the gratuities are automatically applied, whether good or bad service.) This was after we were told that they had no more spinach pie or caesar salad. This was at noon! No special of the day left either (which we didn't even get to know what it was). Many of us then had to 'settle' for something other than what we really went there to have. It is not an inexpensive restaurant. Just ended up ordering a basic greek salad (which luckily they still had available) and the bill was almost $20, incl. tax and tips. All of us were very disappointed and not at all happy. Seems like Penelope's will be getting a pass in the future. Too many other good choices in the area.

Arrived at 7:15 PM and the place looked packed but I was seated immediately. It turns out the people dining on weekends are often dining early in order to see a play at one of the nearby theaters. When they cleared out by 7:30 PM the dining experience was delightfully casual (but Elena, my waitress, had asked if I was "in a hurry for a show"). My soup arrived within minutes and was excellent. The entrée was well-prepared and tasty. Dessert with some Graffa ended the evening well.
