We walked past one night and saw a crowd waiting to dine so we made a booking. It just happened to be Valentine’s Day so we had to have the set menu. I think the al La carte would have been better. The seafood option...came with a rice/spinach side which we both tasted but didn’t eat. It was way overcooked and had a bitter flavor. Oysters were advertised on the set menu but weren’t available (the waitress told me they were re-using old menu’s). Why would you do that? A gentleman who I assume was the owner was parading around with a clip board and appeared to be ticking off guests as they arrived. I think it would be nice if this gentleman had have dressed for the occasion. A woman who I think was his wife was beautifully dressed, all the staff were well dressed in uniforms and this guy wore a polo which was stretched and poor fitting jeans . A little effort would help the ambiance. The best thing about the evening was the guy singing. He was 10/10More

Friday night dinner in a nice garden with blankets if we needed them. Very friendly and mind staff food served with a smile. We tried dolmades, spinkopita and courgette fritters to start. Well seasoned and tasty. I thought the fish kebab was delicious. Generous chunks...of kinkklip, tender calamari and a couple of decent prawns. All washed down with Durbanville Hills Sauvignon blanc. Very nice eveningMore

Looking for a change from our hotel menu, found this great Greek restaurant on bustling Regent Road,Sea Point, a short walk from our hotel. Based in a large converted corner house, with an outside dining section, we went inside as place very busy & no...room outside. An excellent varied reasonably priced menu, we plumped for a Hummus & Pitta Bread shared starter, followed by a shared Chicken Souvlaki with a Greek Village Salad, all huge portions. Service a bit slow as they had a large party to cater for outside, but staff very friendly & helpful. With drinks & a tip around £20. In UK would cost more than double; highly recommendedMore

This restaurant was recommended by our tour guide and it did not disappoint. The Greek menu was extensive and the waiter was very helpful. The food, was freshly cooked, so there was a little wait but when it arrived it was delicious. So good that...we went back a second timeMore

Thankfully, there were plenty of vegetarian options. I had the vegetarian moussaka which was delicious. We had to sit indoors because it was very windy but the atmosphere inside was lovely.

Seated outside at dusk we had to move due to birds roosting overhead and dropping what they do. Food mediocre compared to other places. Nice setting but not worth the trip there.

Mediocre food. Prawns tasted like they had been cooked & then re-heated so they were actually overcooked. Mussels were small and tough. There are much better places to eat in Cape Town.

With lovely outdoor seating in the heat of summer, this experience was very pleasant. The food was not excellent but was still one for the books. If you are looking for a halal friendly restaurant that serves up some mean Greek food, then this isn't...a bad place to start.More
