We had 3 completely different dishes. Shanghai Express (Beef Noodles in Plum Sauce), Seabass and Sushi. All 3 meals were delicious, well cooked and tasty. Also treated ourselves to the fantastic crepes for dessert. Lovely restaurant.

I really used to like this restaurant but visited here whilst on holiday. I had the mousaka which as normal was lovely. I'm just confused as to where it's going...shisha bar, sushi bar?? I think it has lost its family friendliness...that and the brandy sours are not as good as they used to be. Some of the sushi that came... More

Went to this restaurant for a decent lunch before an early evening flight. Nice atmosphere, and the food was OK, not amazing. Unfortunately halfway through our meal, what I assume to be the owners/management, decided to sit directly behind us in a fairly empty restaurant and light a cigarette. Now nobody wants to inhale passive smoke, let alone allow it... More

Visited Hippocampus for the 2nd time after many years and it is still as good, if not better, than my 1st time. The portions are very large, the food is always tasty, both the mains and the starters, the service was fast although it was busy and the drinks were great. Only shame was we did not get to try...
