Visited previously and were very pleased, visited today, what was there was good but much smaller than previous . Not as much to see, so expensive. Disappointing.

Found this after looking for something different to eat. Yummy. Had the meze, what great value, so much food that never stopped coming out. Really enjoyed it here. Shame it wasn't more busy as it deserves it.

Decor, terrible, no atmosphere, service was OK, food in general was not impressive other than the dessert. I would seriously recommend the Baclava, it was delicious and the restaurants saving grace for me.

"Blackpool’s only Greek taverna for more than 25 years, Fylde institution Giggi’s has now become The Med, encompassing cuisine from throughout the sun drenched region. Close to Blackpool’s favourite attractions – the Winter Gardens, Grand Theatre and the Blackpool Tower complex – The Med is hugely popular with tourists looking for a taste of sunshine even on the coastal resort’s darkest days. The welcoming interior has a classic edge, painted in neutral tones, tables dressed in white while the atmosphere is always lively, especially on the restaurant’s special party nights. The menu, expanded to include cuisine from beyond Greek borders, features an extensive journey from kebabs to pasta right through to continental grills. However always popular is the twelve course Greek meze feast. "
