Asteras is a long time favourite, with wonderful Greek food, excellent service, and lovely surroundings. Their lamb cannot be equaled, and their octopus is delectable. I never have room for dessert.

Email the restaurant or call directly. Trip Advisor isn't the place to ask a specific question of the restaurant and expecting an accurate answer by a previous customer.

Hello, I have not had either of these items at Asteras so I'm sorry I cannot help you with your questions. My best suggestion would be to have spoken with the wait staff/manager of your concerns/questions.
