We brought our office to Asteras for our winter dinner celebration. Everyone raved about their food. The grilled calamari was a favourite and the roasted lamb platter was AMAZING The owners take great pride in their business and it shows!

Why was the lamb advertised as "slow roasted " when it must of been steamed or moist cooked in some way. And the oysters were nowhere mentioned as swimming in worchestshire sauce instead of tobassco wine and olive oil ? I have cooking for over 40 years and have knowledge regarding my comments.

Hello, I have not had either of these items at Asteras so I'm sorry I cannot help you with your questions. My best suggestion would be to have spoken with the wait staff/manager of your concerns/questions.
