Thursday night in half term. Chanced our arm but a party inside. However they sat us in the atrium and made us welcome. Food was delicious, plentiful and fresh. Home made cake was phenomenal. Prices very reasonable. Service excellent.

Very charming little restaurant, I had a very nice Stifado of which there was plenty of, My wife also. We had read others reviews and were not disappointed. I had read the place gets very busy so emailed my reservation and got a quick reply. We also had a ltr of house wine.
