this is an ok place to eat. The service was good and the food was alright. Reasonably tasty moussaka but it is a Greek restaurant after all.

Enjoyed a festive holiday dinner here with some of the best vegetarian Greek food we have ever had. The moussaka and stuffed peppers were excellent. Worth the visit!

I keep going there and continue to enjoy it. Many good dishes, including the moussaka, both meat and vegetarian. The aubergine dish is also particularly good. I like the desserts, not least the lemon cheesecake. Wines are good too.

It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.

tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
