Best slow cooked lamb ever; calimari, veg moussaka, olive tampinade, hummus wonderful -- well seasoned and so tasty. Casual atmosphere, comfortable for friends, couples and groups. Service ranged from average to good, depending on number of guests.

Excellent food and service. Very good value. The best calamari I've had in a long time. My husband had the chicken souvlaki and I stole his potatoes. They were delicious.
