Great lamb dishes with sufficient choices for non-meat eaters as well. The starters were delicious as was the wine.

I must say Greece is certainly a top menu choice that should be becoming more popular. It is tasty, healthy and different. It is nice to break up the ordinary dominos with a even better value you for money. I’m still dreaming about the food now. Thank you to our wonderful waiter that has a background in law, we thought you were great, happy and know your wine and food. We even learnt allot from you. All the best in everything you do and don’t stop following ambitions.

We stopped in for lunch. While the restaurant was busy there were many alcoves so that it felt very private. Portions were generous. Food was fresh. It was excellent value

We came here with high hopes given the reviews but left disappointed. The fava beans with pitta bread for starters was delicious but the mains were mediocre, especially my partner’s risotto which was incredibly bland; it tasted like they had forgotten to season it. Given they were £14-15 each we were expecting far better. We also asked twice (and to 2 different waitresses) for extra bread to finish our fava beans but it never came. On the plus side the Greek wine was good. I wouldn’t recommend on this experience.
