We booked for a special celebration. I was e-mailed 24 hours beforehand asking me to confirm my booking (which I did). On arrival at the restaurant, about 10 mins before the booking time...it was closed. It has been closed ever since (3 days). Somehow we received an e-mail stating that the Greek Meze had booked us in...and 'how was our experience?'. Not sure how they did that, so...not good at all. Not all that keen on trying them again. We went somewhere else for a fantastic Mediterranean meal (lovely evening)...and please ignore the next page as it's difficult to rate 'what was good about our experience' - when it wasn't. Had to choose one or I couldn't move on in the review.

I'm no old fogey but the music (Greek) was deafening - waiter did have it turned down for us in fairness. It's nicely done out and service friendly enough, but food was very average at best.

Kleftiko dry, Gyro maybe a poor choice by me but not good. They got my starter order wrong and whatever it was they brought was tasteless. Even the 'pitta' bread wasn't as nice as most I've had.

In summary, pay more and go to Ephesus or Hisar instead for much better food of a similar ilk.

Food amazing, drinks choice amazing, service amazing. Social distancing and overall care about the pandemic awful. The hostess was kissing people on the cheek as they entered the restaurant and we ain’t talking 1 person we are talking at least 20.

We have been welcomed by smile of the waitress who was serving us until end of the evening. Incredibly noisy evening in crowded place where social distancing was just a dream. Food was of poor quality with meat old least to say which most possibly was soaked in vinegar to reduce old taint. Generally speaking i will never be back to that place again as it was over-priced for canteen quality food. Would I recommend it? Definitely not

Myself and four girlfriends chose the Greek Meze for a girls night out after one of us saw an advert.

The atmosphere and staff were perfect for the night of letting our hair down that we all wanted. Drinks were flowing, staff were attentive and the music was loud. We shared hot seafood platters and it was all good.

If you are looking for a quiet meal, probably not the place for you. However, we had a great time and would go again for a lovely night out!

Also, have to agree with a previous review that the COVID-19 guidelines are being taken with a more relaxed approach here!!

We tried this new restaurant for lunch on Sunday because we thought it looked very nice. We were not disappointed! We sat outside which was nice. We had the hot mixed meze along with a couple of extra cold meze dishes. Every single dish was delicious. We will go back!!!!

My friend and I had both ordered the seabass but the waiter asked if we could leave it to him so we did and what we received was 3 different types of fish which was very tasty.

for a starter we ordered a cold and hot meze which was very good however could have done with a little more pitta bread.

The noise level was a little high so was difficult to have a conversation.

Really accommodating service from the staff. Great food - highly recommend the fish mains. Little or no social distancing / no PPE on staff - if that's a concern. Wednesday night appears to be a sing along / dance night - great if that's what your after. Not great if your looking for a romantic or quiet night out

Nice Greek restaurant HOWEVER social distancing did not exist. The staff did not all wear visors and took our order about half a metre away due to the noise level. The visors worn by a few of the staff looked really cheap and did not cover the face adequately. Our details were not taken as I would have expected in case of Covid cases and it was packed.

On the good side the food was quite okay.
