We ate here on a midweek evening in May and had the meze for 2 people. The food was very good, with all the classic Greek dishes you might expect. They were well prepared hot and tasty. The house wine was fine, but dessert was something of a joke, consisting of 2 small slices each of melon and banana when... More

Cannot fault this restaurant at all. Always our 'go to' restaurant when we can't decide what to eat. Nothing is ever too much. Would always recommend to anyone who visits Derby.

We were here last Saturday night for a girls night out to celebrate a couple of birthdays. We booked pretty late in the week & although there was 7 of us, they did everything to accommodate us. 5 of us had the Mezze & 2 ate off the menu. The food cannot be faulted here, the Mezze was 12 courses,... More

We discovered Steliana`s and Sapho`s Greek Taverna in Derby about 10 years ago, and have been going back to Derby ever since, just to eat there. Andreas is incredibly dedicated to consistently serving his diners the tastiest and freshest of greek food in an authentic greek taverna. We love the food, the ambiance, the friendly and personal service. Both his... More

I was part of organising an event at Steliana's and Saphos for the bank holiday. Approximately 45 people turned up in quite a small but fantastic restaurant. The staff who were there provided an absolutely phenomenal two course traditional Greek meal catering for the needs of everyone who attended so a massive hats off to them. I will definitely be...

I reserved a table for my girlfriend and I and we were not greeted warmly upon arrival. The staff were rude and worst of all the meat was under cooked. Very disappointed.

We came here as a group after a friend's recommendation. The place is pleasant inside, with stuff everywhere that shouts 'we're Greek!' as loud as possible. The staff were friendly and the chef in particular came out several times while we were there to check we were happy with everything. We had the mezze, a continuous conveyer belt of starters...

Celebrated my wife's birthday with family and friends. We'd only been once before many years ago but we'd enjoyed it and I'd seen the recent reviews suggesting that things were as good as ever. Most of the party had the meze menu which was truly outstanding. None of us have what you could call small appetites, but the meze was... More

Came here for Mother's Day after wanting to come for a few years. Can't believe I haven't been sooner. The food was authentic and tasted exactly as I remembered from the times I've been to Greece. The dolmades were beautiful, whitebait was my favourite and we had calamari - cooked perfectly. Plenty of food on the starter dishes - you... More

We have been coming here so many years we first found this place when it was in Blacksmiths Yard, decades ago. Enough said?
