This was our second time in this lovely restaurant and as we live close by definitely not the last. I was slightly nervous as our children are quite fussy and my Dad was also with us (equally fussy!) but the multiple options on the menu made for plenty of choices. Only error was ordering too much food - it killed... More

I really do not know who is writing those positive reviews because the place is atrocious. The service is the definition of bad - not even "hello" from the waitress let alone welcome with the smile. She simply dropped our cutlery and plates an the table, turned around and left. In order to pay, I had to browse every dark... More

Ambelis looks inviting from the outside. That's exactly how we decided to take our friends there. It looked perfect for a fun evening with friends. The problem is that once inside everything is substandard. The food is plentiful but not very good and it's not served in a logical manner nor at a proper pace. The service is awful, you... More

We love Cypriot cuisine and I had great ambitions going there but unfortunately my expectations were not met!! Taste was great, service was ok but I got disappointed by the portions which were quite small !!

This restaurant is great. They offer in the beginning tahini with humus and olives. The bread is like traditional Turkish bread "pide". I have tried mix meze and it was a lot of food. In addition my partner pork stew, it was really delicious the meet was very tender. It was marinated with red wine. House wine was also ok.... More

In a family friendly atmosphere it is possible to taste some Cypriot recipes. Fresh food, OK portions ( the mixed grill indeed is a bit small) and fair prices. I don't understand why the French fries are included in the main dish. Would not be better to include more salad or rice? I suppose the fries are instead part of... More

Cypriot cuisine may not be as known as Greek, but it's at least as delicious as its bigger brother. I visit this restaurant quite frequently and neither the food nor the service has ever let me down. It is top quality, home-like Cypriot food: always tasty, served (almost) always quickly and always with a smile. I usually take a few... More

If you like simple, tasty, fast-served food which looks like grandma's recipe - the place is for you. Usually full of Cypriots and hugely overcrowded on week-ends, so make sure you book on a Friday or Saturday night (I've been going there for four years, it's a repeated experience). when it's really busy, the service gets a bit confused but...

Should you like Mediterranean cuisine, this is the right place for you in Brussels. The meals are really delicious, the staff speaks french, English and Greek. Nevertheless that the place is a little bit tiny, we were charmed by the atmosphere and the service was excellent.

Hidden in the back streets behind Merode, on the way to Montgomery, this place is lovely! Managed by local Cypriot people, it is cosy and comfortable with a variety of mezzes (the tapas in Greek language), fresh salads, main dishes, including gvegetarian. Definitely to recommend!
