Very disappointed. Booked a meal for my Husbands birthday they had double booked but pretended I hadn't booked the restaurant. Waitress was unhelpful and wouldn't offer a solution, shame as been there a few times and it's always been good. Ruined the night

Lovely ambience, great menu of Greek classics with a bit of a twist - so a bit more refined than usual Taverna fayre. Staff knowledgeable and efficient. Good Greek wines too. Efharisto!

Friendly with a nice ambience, but rather noisy and understaffed. Sadly very few vegan options, terribly slow service on the most recent visit, and disappointingly flavourless stuffed vegetables and no salt or pepper on the table to spice it up.

So Silksheen, you say you decided to try out this restaurant after hearing mostly negative reviews from locals? That is absolute rubbish. If you genuinely heard a negative review about a restaurant from a reliable source, you just wouldn't go there. I think you are a fraud.
