    We were a group of four who got individual meals, and everyone got their meal at the same time which was great. Very tasty food, and great for a casual dinner with friends - have been several times already and would go back again.

    The food was Amazing, lamb a tad try for my dinner party but I didn’t mind it. We were a family of 8 for my dads 75th birthday, & 3yr old as well. The entrees came out with our main so there was no real settling in vibe. We were in & out within an hour which was a shame as we would have liked for the evening to last longer & have a couple of cocktails. But unfortunately the music was so loud we felt like we were in a club & could not have a conversation without speaking loudly. We didnt bother doing the cake as we just wanted to leave. On a brighter note. The kitchen staff were accommodating, the food was yum.. now i know the environment I’d be able to get in the zone, or sit outside.

    Amazing food and great service. Suitable for coeliacs, chefs have a great understanding, and when the waitress wasn’t sure they checked with the chef who outlined what could and couldn’t be modified to suit. Was quite loud inside, so you’ll have to talk up. But 100% would go again!

    Food was ok, service not great. Our mains were brought out before we’d even received all our entrees, we were sharing and appeared to be a huge impost to get some extra plates. Doubt we’d go again when there are other Greek options in the area

    The food is delicious and generous. I went for lunch with a couple of friends during the week and we shared a couple of main dishes and a starter. The music is the only thing that I would say where I would have to consider if I was going out with my partner. As someone who wears hearing aids, even sitting outside on a calm day, the music was too distracting and doesn't need to be that loud for a lunchtime crowd.

    Really delicious Greek food - never disappoints. The pita bread and dips are all so tasty and fresh and the meat very well cooked & seasoned. Salads excellent. Quick and friendly service - make sure you book as they are often very busy and it's hard to get a table without a reservation. Hits the spot when you feel like Greek cuisine.
