We went here for my birthday. Lovely food and great atmosphere. It wasn't busy but the waiters were fab as they didn't hang about waiting for us to choose what we ate.

Lovely friendly staff, great menu I chose grilled hallumi for starters then beef stifado both cooked to perfection and very tasty, lots of bread and a beautiful Greek salad. Really good value for money wish we lived nearer ( we live in Yorkshire ) I would definately visit regularly.

Great staff and owner....small but good value for money. Vegetarian mousakka needs attention as probably don't sell many and we felt it had been in the fridge for many days. Can be very busy and if in a hurry you may have to push the waitressing staff along....appears good value but soon adds up with
