The service was very good the staff knew the menu well and were helpful with explaining the menu and food to us. We had dips with warm flat bread which was so fresh and tasty. We loved the eggplant moussaka. The grilled calamari was delicious too. We decided to have the Halva Icecream for dessert, which was really light and tasty. Definitely coming back.

The food is delicious and provided in generous quantities. I organised a special birthday dinner there for my husband earlier this week, and our party of six all found the food and service to be superb. I won’t single out any specific dishes as everything on the menu is worth trying. We had the $65 a head banquet and enjoyed every dish put before us. You can tell that the owners really care about their customers and the quality of the food they serve up to them.

The service here was incredible, and so was the food! The waitresses were friendly and very prompt with their service. Not to mention the food! They gave great portions in the $45pp banquet, the lamb was incredibly tender, and the chicken was to die for! I have to say though, the fresh pita bread and dips were definitely the standout! The loukoumades were also delicious, although a small dollop of ice cream would have gone well with them! (but that may not be as traditional) Definitely coming back here again, I think this will be our regular date night spot! 10/10

So to have the waiting staff come to us at 8pm and TELL us we had to leave because the next party arrived was rude & a tad disappointing.. 10 mins may not seem much but given it had been 10 mths since I’d seen my folks it was a long time..

The main course was very disappointing. The calamari was pale, potatoes ordinary, lamb tasted like it was slow cooked rather than roasted as the menu said. The dessert was served well after the tea and coffee were consumed. The dessert itself was cordon part and warm in other sections. Mentalist at payment. Didn't seem concerned. Was charged a surcharge fee despite using savings. If tap is going to incur a surcharge kindly advise the customer to insert card instead.

Entrees were lovely, although we did not receive all the items listed as being a part of that banquet. Possibly a misunderstanding with the waitress as I had requested an extra item to be added. We got that item but at the expense of missing something else. Mains were unfortunately a disappointment - my chicken skewer was undercooked to the point I did not want to risk eating it. The lamb skewer was overcooked. The lamb shoulder, whilst very tender lacked flavour as did the other meat dishes, all very bland. Lemon potatoes - again no flavour and seemed to just be steamed baby potatoes dressed in a bit of lemon and oil. Two I did not touch as they were showing greening of the skin - these should never have been served up ! Dessert was the highlight although too many of the donuts. We have eaten Greek many many times and this fell far short of our other experiences. Would have been nice upon paying the bill to be asked how our meal was ☹️ The Lady owner though was lovely both upon arrival and leaving.

Service was very good they were very attentive, I liked the posters everywhere. Wine list was great and we enjoyed the Assyrtiko (Santos from Santorini). Entrees were good (stuffed zucchini flowers, saganaki, dips and the sausage with peppers). It's just a pity about those 2 mains :(
