Recommended by our hotel, they certainly were not wrong. Lovely table on the terrace so we could see all going on around us on a busy Friday night. Prompt and welcoming service. Good choice of w8m3s available and delicious food. If going for the fish...combo or trio then pass on a starter! You will never need desert!More

Excellent! We were a loud bunch (clearly pre-maroon 5 concert dinner), so thank you to the owners for their hospitality and great sense of humor. Food was on point and fresh. Ouzo afterwards was delicious. We convinced several passers by to dine here and at...one point a table of three mature gentlemen whom I struck up a conversation with thought I was the manager. They enjoyed it as much and said they would return for dinner again after their cruise on the 12th of Jan. Thank you for a memorable dining experience!More

My husband and I chose this place off of the review ratings- it was the best decision that we made. The food was literally amazing! We ordered Yuvetsi and kleftiko- the ingredients were on point and the meat was literally falling off the bone. The...owner was operative & very friendly. We commented to the owner on how great the food was & we instantly made a connection since we are Greek as well. He was so nice to treat us to coffee & ice cream. We are looking forward to another visit in the future!More

Simple spot and food was tasty. Drinks- we let our server choose a bottle of Sav Blanc and it was light and refreshing. Food- we got a Mezze platter, fish combo, and peri peri chicken. Food took a bit long to come out. The portions...were large, great flavors, and really well presented. Service- everyone we interacted with was friendly, professional, and helpful. Special shout-out to towanda for taking great care of us. Vibe- casual and simple decor. There is options to sit inside and outside.More

The food was terrible a shadow of what it was in the past. Also the service chaotic at best. Disappointed. So sad. I would not be able to recommend this resturant.

4 out of 8 people in our party had sickness and diarrhoea after sharing a meze, this ruined the majority of our 6 nights in Cape Town and no apologies given after contacting the restaurant directly!!

Booked a table through Facebook for 8 people and I received a reply confirming the booking. On arrival i was initially told bookings should be via telephone however this was quickly resolved and we were accommodated. Service was good and food tasted nice - ambiance...was also nice even though load shedding was on. When desserts came the ice cream was very soft and apologies were made with load shedding given as the reason. Howevet during that evening 4 out of the 8 were violently ill with sickness and diarrhoea that lasted into 2 days. It can only have been the shared platter as this was our only common meal and due to the timings. I did attempt contact a couple of times through messenger but finally received a response that other people had the platter and were fine - sorry but I felt this place needed an honest review as it ruined over a day of our 5 days in Cape Town.More

We arrived late with no reservation on a Saturday night 9:30. The restaurant was busy and we asked for a table. They were very nice and seated us and kept the kitchen open later. Great service and we loved the food. The moussaka was excellent...lamb delightful.More

Where do I start without writing a story book that bores people senseless … Booked 8 weeks in advance for Greek Night On arrival booking not on list but once we produced proof and deposit paid we were sat at our table for 8 persons...after 15 minutes of discussion Staff took 20 minutes to get drinks & Wine plus missed 2 drinks off the order Restaurant rammed to the rafters and sorry but staff not organized or being lead We arrived at 6.50pm and were served abysmal Set Menu appetizers at 7.55pm after asking 3 times to staff- told kitchen busy and please wait thereafter once plates were cleared and waited until 9.10pm for our Main Courses we decided to leave Two members of our table asked to speak to the Management and nobody arrived so my friend spoke to an owner hiding behind the bar and we just paid for our drinks as the excuses given were pi** poor and all I can say is the event was oversold and understaffed , plus looking at other reviews on the webpage it’s a disaster already Lastly owners family were present in the restaurant and were allowing there kids to run wild and waiters were having to dodge them whilst expediting hot food and drinks , sorry but this is a restaurant as listed not a kindergarten and shame on these parents not educating there children how to behave in an adult restaurant Do yourself a favor go elsewhere 0/10More

Having eaten here before I knew what to expect. Service is still attentive and the food great. Timo (the manager) was always around making sure things were done properly and service was maintained. We have tried many things on the menu and this time the...baby chicken, lamb chops, lamb skewers and the dolmade were the chosen items. All good choices and consumed with gusto. Definitely worth a revisit again in the futureMore

We loved the Mykonos platter. We will definitely go back for more Greek food especially more of the baby calamari. Definitely as good as we got in Greece.
