This is a new restaurant located in Bridgend Town and as my son is away on a school trip we thought we give it a try. We took my 8 year old daughter out with us for an early tea. Despite this being what I would describe as a couples / group venue, the food was really tasty, a main meal and bottle of wine cost us £60 which we thought was reasonable, and they gave us a very warm and friendly welcome, which means we will definitely go back. The place including the toilets were also spotless! - which is always a good sign. I would highly recommend a visit.

Great food and service. We had a lovely welcome and we’re taken straight to our table. The drinks and food orders were taken promptly and delivered in the same manner. The menu had lots of choices including a wide range of vegetarian and vegan dishes. The food was hot and tasted authenticly Greek. An all round great night out with the host and service to be congratulated. Our only minor criticism was a bottle of Retsina wine being £20. However we did know the price but ordered it is we wanted an authentic Greek meal. So glad to see new cuisines coming to Bridgend.

Ate at Tholos with my husband. There was a warm ,welcoming atmosphere at the restaurant. We were seated near the serving counter of the kitchen, everything that came out was presented so beautifully and looked scrumptious. Service was excellent and the staff were friendly despite being very busy. Our meals were delicious, I was impressed that the desserts on offer were also traditionally Greek rather than the usual offerings in most places. We shared a semolina custard in filo dessert accompanied by cream with pistachios, it was amazing. The whole meal was so reasonably priced and very good value for money.

Really disappointing. Terrible wine- paid £26 for a bottle of wine which tasted of vinegar (and smelt of gas), were not offered a tasting and the waiter could not suggest any as he ‘didn’t drink wine’. Had a whole bottle of coke tipped over my friend, not offered napkins or replacement. When we complained the manager came and was very aggressive saying he could not possibly take away the wine from the bill (although me and my friend had to order an alternative drink as it was so bad)! Really disappointed as looked forward to Bridgend having a Greek restaurant - the service let it down 100%, would not go back or suggest to others. Doesn’t even compare to the Greek restaurants in Cardiff or even alternative restaurants in Bridgend

A fabulous place to eat, beautiful authentic Greek cuisine. Lovely waitress , no long waits for our food. We went off the lunchtime menu , my wife had the lemon chicken dish and I had the authentic kebabs, chicken served with salad leaves , Rice and a lovely pot of a Greek yogurt dip. The kebabs came as above but fried potatoe slices replaced the rice. Absolutely fantastic , the only thing stopping giving full stars was the pricey drinks menu

My wife and I had a lovely lunch at Tholos. There was a great choice on the Lunch time special menu and the portions were very generous, the staff were very nice and they let you taste the wine before you order. We will definitely go there again.

This was our third visit to Tholos. I have had the chicken souvlaki on all three visits because it is just so good. You get two skewers of delicious, moist chicken, served with bread, tzatziki, chips and salad. I’m not usually a big salad person but even I love the salad with the lovely yellow dressing. I have been to a few Greek places in Cardiff and had dry, tasteless chicken souvlaki, but thankfully Tholos shows exactly how it should be done. On the visit we got the mixed platter starter which was huge and such good value for money. The cocktails are also lovely and cheaper than the local cocktail bars. The staff are always lovely and the atmosphere is great. I highly recommend Tholos!

Honestly couldn't fault anything about this restaurant the place is absolutely beautiful, the staff are friendly and welcoming and fast service. We had the lunchtime menu 2 courses for £13.95 and wow is all I can say the portion was amazing for the price. Highly recommend coming here and I will be coming back

Great to have more choice in Bridgend and a comfortable place to eat Greek food is a bonus. The set menu featured old favourites and new (to me) dishes. The service was attentive and personal and the servings were very generous. I needed a doggy bag. The wine is Greek, worth trying to see if you like it. All in all worth a return visit.

We've walked past several times and finally got round to lunch here. The online booking process was simple and the website easy to navigate - It's nice to be able to check out the menus beforehand as well. Kayleigh was brilliant - quick, efficient and there when you needed her. We opted for the Spanakopita and Kolokithia croquettes to share as a starter and then the Mix Meat Platter for two. We were warned that this would be generous and that a doggie bag would be available - just as well 😁 as we did end up taking some home. Everything was cooked to order, hot, fresh and tasty and thoroughly delicious. At last we now have another reason to venture into Bridgend, it's really good that we're starting to get a fabulous range of eateries on our doorstep. We will return to sample more from this menu.

Had a lovely meal at Tholos. The restaurant is decorated beautifully, it really makes you feel like you are in Greece, especially with the traditional music being played. Food was gorgeous and very much enjoyed by my partner and I. Cocktails were a little expensive so only had one. Would recommend Tholos to anyone!

We decided spontaneously to eat out on a Monday evening and are glad we chose this restaurant. Although quite quiet the full range of the wide varied menu was available. There were so many exciting dishes on the menu that we will need to come back and try some of the others too. We chose the beef stifado and the lemon and oregano chicken and were not disappointed. Delicious, well-presented and the portions were large. The environment has Greek artifacts and this lends to the atmosphere. The service was prompt and friendly and we look forward to revisiting soon. Thank you for a most pleasant dining experience.

The atmosphere was cold and you got the impression they wanted you out as soon as possible. Not a place to relax in. Was totally disappointed in the food. The tarama dip was so runny you could have drunk it. When I pointed this out it was removed from the bill. The Kalamari were minute and there was more deep fried covering than Kalamari. The dessert was vile. Supposed to be a chocolate soufflé, what was served was a stodgy cold thing that resembled a heavy suet pudding and the accompanying ice cream was full of ice crystals. I have eaten authentic Greek food for years and this was nothing like what I'm used to. I shan't be returning there gain. Also, I was ill when I got home.

Four of us had a lovely meal in a really nice restaurant right in the centre of Bridgend. We didn’t have a reservation but we were seated quickly without any fuss. Staff were all very helpful and friendly especially our waitress Natalia who was fab. Really helpful and pleasant and helped us choose a bottle of wine by bringing out 3 samples so we could decide which was great. Food was great - Calamari was about the best I’ve had, while the lamb kebabs were tender and tasty. Really enjoyed. Would definitely recommend and look forward to going back soon.

We were looking for a nice place to visit locally for lunch to accommodate 4 adults and a baby. The website was so easy to navigate and book a table through. The staff were extremely welcoming and could not do enough for us. Our food was served promptly and we especially liked that we could see it being prepared in the kitchen. Absolutely stunning food and excellent service. Looking forward to our next visit!
