We have been happy customers for many years. The lunch has always been great value but now, if you don’t request it, customers are not even offered the lunch menu. We had excellent service today, much better than that of previous visits by a new...More

Take Greek style charcoal grilled Calamari or Octopus as an example. The recipe/formula = Charcoal grill, Calamari/Octopus marinated with Greek Oregano, pepper, sea salt, Olive oil. lemon juice/balsamic vinegar.
