I came with a friend to Worcester for a brief visit and saw this place on trip advisor. We just managed to get a table because we went fairly early. We were greeted by very friendly staff and Alex the boss, they were very attentive...and the food came out pretty quick. We had a few different dishes and all were delicious. Me being Greek and fussy couldn’t fault it at all. Would recommend it to anyone. Well done guys.More

Nothing pretentious about this place. superb simple greek cooking done very well. Generous portions, great service and lovely atmosphere. Prawn Saganaki was amazing, gloriously rich and heavily laced with ouzo. Lamb Kleftiko was very much enjoyed by my partner. Beautifully tender lamb, with the bone...pulled out of the dish at the table by the waiter with a dramatic flourish. Highly recommendedMore

We were in Worcester overnight and decided to try Island. We were not disappointed. Although busy, they were welcoming and accommodating and went out of their way to greet us and to find us a table. The food was excellent, fresh and so tasty and...the portions very generous so we couldn’t manage a dessert- well a good reason to return! Highly recommendedMore

Excellent Greek restaurant in central Worcester. Friendly, helpful staff, attentive but not overbearing. Very tasty, authentic Greek dishes, we recommend the souvlaki, the moussaka and the stifado, plus the dips that we shared as a starter. Would definitely return. By the way, worth booking in...advance!More

We stayed in Worcester for 2 nights before heading back to Sussex, and fancied a Greek meal. Read the reviews on here and thought we'd try it. How glad are we that we did. This restaurant is 5 star in every respect. The staff were...wonderful and cheery, the restaurant clean and welcoming. Having visited various parts of Greece, we appreciate it when we find an authentic meal and this didn't disappoint. Every part of the meal was fabulous. It was a busy Friday night and many of the customers were obvious returning locals who were greeted in the same cheery manner as ourselves who were strangers.. I can't recommend the Island highly enough, and we'll visit again when back in Worcester.More

Last minute booking to celebrate my other half’s birthday. The restaurant is busy and rightly so, but they managed to squeeze us in. We received a very warm welcome from the moment we stepped through the door and was quickly shown to our table. The...menu has lots to offer, and it really was difficult to make a choice, but at least that gives me a reason to keep going back! We had spicy sausage and calamari for starters followed by Kleftiko for main…. I’ve never had so much flavour packed in to one dish, it was absolutely delicious. Dessert was orange yoghurt cake and a Greek coffee, which was accurately described by the waitress as being like a punch to the face 😆😆 We really enjoyed our visit tonight, thanks to the staff for such a friendly and warm experience, we look forward to visiting again soon.More

First visit to this well praised Greek style restaurant. We got there early before a show and lucky we did as it was fully booked for an hour or so later but were fitted in. Excellent staff who I assumed were family. The treated us...like friends and served us with tasty starters and main courses. I had fresh mussels with whole sea bream for main course and my wife enjoyed Melitzanosakata then moussaka all of which was enjoyed. Fully booked so we soon finished having enjoyed the mealMore

Great food in good quantities, good value for money and a convenient location. Guisell looked after us perfectly but both the front of house staff were brilliant hosts. Well done and thanks to them and to the kitchen staff. Highly recommended.

We moved to Worcester from London yesterday, after a stressful and exhausting day we stumbled upon The Island almost before closing time. Luckily we were accommodated, the food was amazing I had a small (not small) platter while my partner had lamb chops dish. Our...waitress Ghisella (sorry if I misspelled her name) was delightful and amazing. She’s a young lady who will go far! Everything was great! We will definitely be back!More

Had a fabulous meal here tonight. The hummus, taramasalata, and tzatziki dips with pitta bread were a delicious starter. The fish was fresh, so were salads and souvlaki. We saw other meals coming out of the kitchen which were well presented and all looked freshly...cooked. Spotlessly clean. Service professional and helpful with menu/wine choices. Could not fault this place. An amazing find, well worth the short walk out of the town centre!!!More

Lovely food and fantastic service. Small independent restaurant with a personal touch. Food was delicious with the lamb chop and sea bream dishes of particular note. Authentic flavours and reasonable prices. We were visitors to Worcester but will definitely come again if we return to...the area. Booking required to ensure a table. Thank you Island restaurant!More
