On a monday night they hold a Greek night. 40 euros per couple. For tht you get a 10 dish meze, half a litre of wine plus of course Greek... More

This place is a must....Maria, Manos and George are without a doubt the friendliest hard working, fun hosts. On our first night we arrived late, but when we walked in when they were about to close they welcomed us and we're happy to cook a delicious meal. We have been back many times and it's always the same warm welcome.... More

Not only was my partners order wrong he was given pork chop instead of lamb. My mousakka was full of courgette with very little meat. We were ignored as they seemed to favour regulars. It was hard to get the attention of the servers. This restaurant was recommended to us but we were very disappointed.
