Have been coming years here for over 15 years, and it never disappoints. This is a small, family business and the owner takes pride in ensuring that all the customers have a pleasant time. The food is traditional and the portions are generous. The halloumi starter and the kleftiko main come especially recommended.

We have eaten here many times as our office used to be in Cleveland Street. We had visited the Natural History Museum and we decided to go to The Four Lanterns for dinner. This is a small restaurant and their kleftiko is very good. The service is good and the food is always well prepared and tasty.

I visited this restaurant, located in the center of London, today. I'm so surprisingly satisfied by the whole experience, that couldn't but highly recommend it here. To begin with, both the owner and the personnel were indescribably hospitable and friendly. Continuing, food was so good, I reminisced my house in Greece ! As for the atmosphere, Greek music and decoration... More

Rustic interiors, Woody Allen movie-like atmosphere. Nice and friendly staff, they didn't mind us staying to finish our wine after the restaurant closed. Good Greek kitchen in central London at reasonable price.

Hits the spot time and again with excellent tarama, whitebait and spring chicken to name a few all washed down with an eminently good Retsina and not forgetting the obligatory Ouzo.

Had a few meals here and its really pretty good and super value for money. Louis Jadot Chablis was only £5 over what you'd pay for it in a shop so was very impressed with that. The lamb chops on the mixed grill had no meat on them, but plenty of other meat to make up for it.
