Recently ate here for a business dinner and had a pleasant experience. The atmosphere was great and the food was yummy! The appetizer spread we had was brilliant, kebabs, dips and pita bread was liked by all. I would recommend this place to anyone craving Greek food.

A very reasonably priced restaurant to go on a lunch break. Service is fast and food isn't delicious. I always go for the seafood options and have yet to be disappointed.

I met with school friends at Mythos and the experience was fantastic. The service was top quality and the food was superb. I would certainly recommend going there for a culinary delight.

Mythos is consistently good. The waiters are engaging, polite and never fail with their excellent service. The food is tasty, authentic and perfectly presented. My husband eats there each week for business purposes and would rather entertain there than at mediocre restaurants closer to his office

Lovely food. Fresh and tasty. Neat and frietndly staff. We've enjoyed it. Decor is tasteful and one feels like you might be in Greece-just ocean is missing.

I went to Mythos with a couple of friends for dinner. It is based in a small shopping center and has been there for some years. The service is good and the food is fantastic. From the chicken livers to the kleftiko (braised lamb shank) and calamari, every dish we had was outstanding. The lamb fell of the bone, the... More

The menu reads like an invitation to a Greek feast. Lots of meze, lamb, fish - everything you would expect to find,creating a sense of anticipation in a town with too many steak houses. The reality is a little more complicated -probably best illustrated by the meze platter where half of the items were executed very well and half decidedly... More

We had a full selection of most of the Mythos menu shared amongst 10 of us. The standard was consistently good across all the offerings with the Squid Heads, Prawns & Halomi were great. What was outstanding was the attitude of the staff, helpful , friendly & taking the initiative to make your experience special. We will return.
