I have never felt the need to review a restaurant, but felt I had to warn other diners of this dismal and disappointing 'taverna'. This is truly the worst place I have ever eaten in and will never return. We had a group booking for a family member's birthday. The decor may once have been quaint, but today it is... More

We went to this place as some friends said it was good, given the fact they went a few years back they were possibly right. Not today. We went into this amazing looking restaurant that felt like it had an amazing atmosphere at first glance. We were wrong. The waitress was ok took our orders for drinks and starters fairly... More

This place was recommended to me by a friend who goes in the evening. Albeit he may have never eaten there, I was looking for somewhere different and full of character. The restaurant looks small from the outside but opens up into this neat court yard and a series of rooms with conservatory glass on the roof to keep it... More

A group of us went here for a friend's birthday. It's kind of quaint, they've really tried to recreate a greek atmosphere. I believe that the waitress had recently started, because she had to keep going to consult the managers when we had a query. She was the only waitress working, so to be left to her own devices was...

Clearly a place that has seen better days, but the food is decent enough. Average range of food. I know a little about Greek food and it was OK, but not what you would call "truly authentic". Service was poor.

We've eaten here several times over the years. The food was slightly different this year but we were very happy with it. The wine is also very pleasant. Probably only complaint I think we choose the wrong night(Friday) with very loud music, but we managed to finish our meal before it got too loud. We will go again.

Had been here 20 years or so ago, and enjoyed it - but sadly it had gone downhill. What had been a quaint and funky venue had become something of a mess. A rather odd and uneasy atmosphere with rather iffy service, though an older gent who I took to be the owner came out at one point and attempted... More

I have eaten here on several occasions and enjoyed every meal at reasonable prices however I mainly go for the dance. George is an excellent and very friendly host with a lot of enthusiasm while other staff while not exactly unpleasant could be inspired by his warmth. Enjoy the place for what it is, a quirky well lived in restaurant,... More

Excellent starter of three spreads with pita bread. My moussakas and my husband's stafidos were both delicious, well seasoned and authentic tasting with nice sides. Ouzo was over-priced, but wines very good and medium price. A rambling place with all sorts of nice, funny, and strange Greece- related decorations. It was quiet when we were there before the beginning of... More
