Alpha ticks all the boxes for me: great food, great vibe, great selection of drinks/wine, great service. My guest and I each had the Kefalotryi Crumbed Pork Cutlet as a main. We each agreed close to our dish of the year! Juiciest pork cutlet I've ever eaten in a restaurant. The Citrus Salad with Parsley, Sweet Onion and Finger Lime was almost as good as the pork. Looking fwd to the Spanakopita next time also, outstanding.

Excellent food. We visited in the pre Xmas party season so we found the venue noisy with three large tables of boisterous young adults in close proximity to our table.

Once again Alpha has provided a lovely dining experience. Food and service are faultless with quality, fresh produce and a good wine list.
Staff are very helpful and not pushy.
Would highly recommend for a quality lunch, either business or pleasure.

Staff and service were excellent; cocktails were delicious and the rose we had was nice. There was a good amount of food for the price. Standout was the lamb. Not many of us really enjoyed the baklava dessert, too sweet.
Would recommend and would return

The food was wonderful and very tasty happy with the food and interior decor, some staff is very friendly, however some staff is not, no smile and no talking, even I am not feel comfortable to ask to change the plate .Also, I started with the sparking water and she keep fill the glass and charged for 3 bottles in the bill. it would be better if she asked before open the other bottles.

This is a Greek restaurant and tsatsiki was off the menu?????!!!! Why? We had pita bread (+ more) for meze and we asked if they could give us the tsatsiki inkluded with the main dish as a meze but the answer was NO. That brings down the whole meal. Got a souvlaki with chips with feta on top??? Very strange food compared to what you get in Greece. But the meat in the souvlaki was great!

My friends and I keep coming back!!
The food is amazing, and always great service.
Usually the staff make a spot for my girlfriend/s and I by the bar, even when they seem to have every table full.

Thanks very much for accomodating us!

Recommend to make a booking in advanced, as they do tend to get busy.

I was very disappointed.The good was delicious but the service was appalling. No vibe to the venue and very sterile. The place was busy and it's probably due to the recommendation on how lovely the food is, which I agree. The twice cooked octopus was very dry and like eating rubber, aside from that the food was great.
**The staff very standoffish and looked like they didn't want to be there, no personality and took our orders looking away from us.

Good food but not a venue for a relaxed meal. Main course arrived while we were still eating entree. Clearly they main aim is to turn over tables as quickly as possible. We were in and out in just over an hour, which did match our expectation of a relaxing dinner/ catch up with friends.
