    went for dinner and delighted with the choice of restaurant. service was excellent and very friendly, wine reasonably priced and food delightful. we shared a number of dishes and thoroughly enjoyed each of them. The prawns and calamari were excellent but the standout was the filo wrapped feta with dressing and as good a dish as we have tried. we then shared a middle eastern chicken large dish and loukoumathas for dessert and enjoyed thoroughly. bookmarked for return visit in very near future as already thinking about some of the other dishes and revisiting filo wrapped feta dish, leaving room to try the lamb which was the local recommendation . well done to the team there for a very enjoyable evening.

    What a gem of a place!! Booked for a large group, no problem, had special food requirements, no problem - everything was brilliant, the food was full of flavour, the staff were accommodating, friendly and welcoming. I’ll be going back, so will our group of friends

    I dined with a group of 12 in late Dec for a work function. I rang up that they had "several other large groups" therefore we needed to order off the set menu min. $65 per person. When booking online the confirmation email said that we could order in advance off the menu, which we decided to do because it was way cheaper. I went and collected all the orders because all the communications with the restaurant made it seem like it was a very busy period for them. When we arrived at the restaurant there were only two-four other small groups. Our food took the usual amount of time to prepare, which is understandable, but slightly annoying because we had gone to all the trouble of preselecting off the menu. It was clearly not as busy as they made it seem and were trying to make more money by trying to force us to order the preset menu. When the food came the portions were small for the price and one of the items was burnt.

    Great outdoor area , inside had no vibe and very quiet Felt awkward and we were seated under a bright light - decided to go outside . Waiter got a cloth to dry seats off out there which was good . Food pretty average - told us they mainly do functions - it felt that way
