This place was just round from our hotel. It offered for £11-95 pp a great vegetarian meze. All the dishes you would expect in a meze. The food was good, quickly served & all staff very pleasant. Would definitely visit again.

First time visit with my friends and definitely will come back! the gyros and beef stifado were our favourites! P.S Crispy chicken wings are amazing! but the salad could do with some dressing maybe?

Returning to Kafeneon for the second time with friends as a party of 8. We were greeted and seated immediately, the staff was very pleasant and the service top notch. The food was delicious, generous portions and served fast. We all enjoyed our evening and shall be back again soon. Thanks Kafeneon.

The waitress was very cheery and attentive and the decor looked quite authentic. We ordered 2 starters to share spanakopita and dolmedes. The... More

First visit but won't be last. Food was out of this world and service impeccable . Both had the meze which was really tasty and interesting. The stand out dish was the pulled pork gyros.... Mouth watering.
