The food is good and priced normally, the athmosphere is very nice! We had a great time in the restaurant.

We went to Ile de Crete on a Saturday evening without having booked and were fortunate to get a table. We shared Feta Saganaki for starter followed Moussaka and a lamb stew with feta all of which were delicious and clearly freshly cooked. We just about managed to share a Greek yoghurt with honey and nuts for dessert. The service... More

We were looking forward to eating in this restaurant being knowledgeable of what Greek food should taste like. We started with the " mézé 2 couverts", the calamari and prawns were frozen, the dolmades were dry and the tzatiki was tasteless. No pita bread was served... We continued with the "brochette géante" and the "calamar grillé". The lamb was ok... More

We ate as a couple on a busy Saturday night and were lucky to get a table. Despite the full restaurant, the service was friendly and efficient. There was a good choice of authentic Greek starters but the highlight was a Chef's Special dinner of delicious lamb cutlets for 2, served on a side table. Provision of wine in pichets... More

Went here because it was a recommendation from a friend. The food is good for the price. The service is slower than most other places in the area. My wife ordered the Grilled Gambas, I ordered what I thought was goat and my son had the beef. In other Greek restaurants I have visited in Europe and the US, they... More

Great atmosphere, service but above all, quality of the meals! We ate shrimps with a hot sauce, it was really good. As main plate,I ordered a very good meat and my girlfriend ordered a moussaka. As dessert we got an ice cream, it was only normal! Again, very good restaurant!

Visited for lunch on a Sunday and the place was abuzz with people (despite being tucked away in a quiet corner of town). Good sign. Despite being busy, they quickly accommodated our family of five. The hors d'oeuvres platter of shrimp, calamari, olives, dolmas, tzatziki and taramas was great. Along with bread, etc. My wife had a big Greek salad... More
