My partner and I have eaten here a few times now since we moved to Colchester three years ago. We have never been disappointed. The best steak in Colchester! And the service was excellent. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Food lovely, filet steak was excellent and huge as was Kleftiko! Staff couldn’t have been more helpful ensuring we were served promptly as parking is difficult as double yellow lines outside. Multi story car park opposite closes at 10pm from October 1st, so go early...More

The steak was great and we had a lovely evening. A bit pricey but worth it. Only criticism is it’s very cramped!

This is the third time we have had the mezze, minimum of four people, and it was as delicious as always. Fabulous food, fabulous atmosphere, fabulous service. If only we lived closer to Colchester

I’d heard people say how good this was, doubt it because of where it was and how small it was. It’s small and you can sometimes feel rushed as you are given a time slot to eat in but to be fair you’d never go...More

There would be no problem with children included. The restaurant is not big so make sure you book well in advance to make sure you can all be fitted in, I am sure you will enjoy your meal.
