I ate with 2 vegetarians on a quiet Thursday evening. I ate the beef stifado followed by Bavlaki- all very tasty. My fellow diners had a vegetable Meze and Vegetable Mousaka followed by cheesecake and crème brulee. The food came quickly and we all enjoyed...More

I wish I'd tried this place sooner, especially as it's within walking distance of my home. Nice décor, a good menu, good service, beautiful food and pretty good value. The wine was good too. My only (very minor) criticisms are the £3 supplement for the...More
