Very impressed with this restaurant, the food here is excellent and good value for money. For just under £30 we both had 2 course meals and some soft drinks. The amount of food was generous and very tasty. We arrived early for a pre-booked table and the waiter had no problem seating us, though to be fair there was no... More

Visited here Saturday evening not long after it opened for the evening with our boys. Waiter / owner very helpful with choosing food for a family, we all devoured everything! I'm not sure how authentic some of it is and I'm not sure the menu has changed in 12 years since I first went, but they do what they do... More

Looking for a evening meal with family we decided on this low key looking restaurant. It's good to be reminded of the simple things in life. The decor and setting are unpretentious just as you would find in a Greek island town. We opted for the mid week meze and a Moussaka. The service was excellent and food sent us... More

Excellent again, staff are so friendly and helpful, couldn't choose between two main courses so was offered a combination of the two, pork souvlaki is highly recommended. My only qualm is the noise...I couldn't hear conversations at the other end of our table but it wouldn't put me off going back, service,food and quality is excellent.

We accompanied friends to celebrate a birthday. As our friends had recommended this restaurant I was really looking forward to authentic Greek/Cypriot dining. Shortly after we were seated at our table a female member of staff came forward and asked if we would like to order drinks whilst studying the food menu. Our friend asked about the house wine and...
