We revisited after some time. Welcome ad service still very good. We had a mixture of starters followed by Stifado and Souvlaki. Both lived up to expectation. Just a pity there were not more dining. When next in Southend we shall seriously consider visiting again

We had tables for 3o+ people a few weeks ago and although lovely I do feel that this was not a true Meze, having eaten many many times at Greek restaurants with them aways containing ALL dishes from the menu. Sadly not the case here as Baklava, Dolmades and a few other items (very typical of Greek cuisine) were not included. Apart from this, the food we actually had was beautiful. Cooked perfectly well and presented wonderfully. The service was great, as was the decor, cleanliness and atmosphere. The staff were all very pleasant and extremely good at their job, not over fussy. Such a shame there was no music until it ws time for us to leave, especially as this was for a birthday party. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I would go again, this time prepared that not all is as it appears lol. I might also add that not one member of staff was actually Greek or Cypriot, which i did truly find odd!

Lovely food, good music. I think just one of the waitresses could have been a little friendlier, didn't feel a great energy from her. The other waitress was amazing though!!

We visited this restaurant on a Friday evening for a Birthday celebration. The place had a great atmosphere initially with authentic Greek music playing in the background. The food was very good and portions a very decent size. The wait for our orders to be taken and our meals served was short.
However, I would mention that the tables are chairs are crammed into a quite small area, and thus the romance of the restaurant was lost. In addition at 8:30pm the Greek music was replaced by a live singer playing the guitar, but only playing random English songs. He could not really be heard above the noise of diners continual chatter anyway, and the Greek atmosphere was totally destroyed which was a great pity.
Personally, I feel that it would be far better to continue with the Greek music all evening.
