We sat in the quieter part of the restaurant, our waiter was friendly and attentive. The food, YUM! Huge platters of food, nicely presented, and sooooo tasty! Yummy tentacles, chicken, put as etc, with dips. Very large... More

Meal was good and Calamari excellent. The central section lacks ambiance as it is noisy due to no soft furnishings. The restaurant was quiet when we were there for Friday lunch. The service was good. The price of a 1 litre bottle of water was as much as a glass of wine!

Very relaxed family restaurant with play areas for the kids. But very noisy inside and I had to shout at my partner all night so he could hear me!

This is a beautiful family restaurant, with enclosed kiddies play areas, outside tables under the trees and several cosy rooms inside. I opted for the Kleftiko (lamb shank). It was delicious! Perfectly spiced (the Greeks know how to prepare lamb) and cooked in alu foil in its own juices. The meat almost fell off the bone, tender, absolutely divine. Even... More

Friendly family restaurant with good sized portions. We sat outside so kids could play in small playground, kids found room with costumes, puzzles, tv etc and had a great time. Food was tasty, potatoes were really great.

We really enjoyed the food Spiro's as well as the service. The food is slightly overpriced but on the other hand the wine is very well priced so it balances out. Lots of Kids and dogs on a Sunday afternoon but they got nice playroom there. Well worth a try.

I had a kleftiko, it was delish! Accompanied by roast potatoes and veg which were also delish. Service was a bit non-attentive but typical for the area. Good experience and recommended.
