My wife and I came here again for dinner and history repeated itself. Not only was the food absolutely superb, but the friendly and efficient service rendered by the staff, headed by Theo, was much appreciated.

Walked in by accident as we noticed plenty of people, pleasantly surprised. The spinach parcel is full of flavor and stuffing. The seafood stew was generous with local prawns and bugtails. The highlight is still the chargilled lamp chops.

Pretty good really, no problems with this place. A little pricy... Cheese balls were delishous, highly recommend ordering these babies. Great place for a meal with family or friends.

If you looking for a place to have a quiet romantic dinner, this is not the place to go. If you are hungry and looking for a fun dinner out with friends and family, look no further! Manolis is a greek tavern, homely, alive, noisy....More

Pleasant place to sit, great service and a delicious simple meal all one could ask for really. Good wine list as well. The charred lamb cutlets perfectly cooked.

Reliably good Greek food, with good service and reasonable prices. It has a comfortable homely atmosphere, and is nearly always packed with locals (a good sign!) so it pays to make a reservation, whether for lunch or dinner. Recommended.

I am not sure if they cater for people with food allergies. I have many food allergies myself - wheat and chemical allergies, but I can usually find something nice I can eat. Perhaps give them a ring and see what they have... More
