I found this quaint restaurant on eat out. I hadn't eaten there but had been to the centre where it's located. They have a decent wine list with lots of variety. Dino the chef came around to greet us and check if we were ok. We ordered the chef recommendations - prawn curry and peri peri chicken. Both tasted very... More

Mediterranean / Greek restaurant with an excellent (awarded) wine list. The service was excellent and the food was very well prepared and nicely presented.

We visit Prosopa occasionally when the apetitie for contemporary fine dining paired with an excellent wine selection strikes. Owner managed, one can most often expect to be greeted by Dino upon arrival, or at least encounter him upon his visit to your table to welcome and ensure your parties' satisfaction. Service, therfore, is always excellent since the owner manages his... More

Fantastic ambiance for dinner or lunch. Awesome for just about any occasion and specifically the romantic / intimate occasion. Slightly on the expensive side. Portions are not big but some of the best quality around. Great selection of wine, very professional and friendly staff. Owner, often around.

I would certainly recommend this lovely Greek restaurant. We had overseas visitors who were so impressed with the atmosphere, service and the food. The service was first rate and the food excellent, the atmosphere was quiet and restful lovely for a dinner with friends where you want to talk and hear each other and the table was beautifully prepared.

In summary: Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, a snow-white table cloth, impeccable service. In detail: we had the mezze platter to start with, and the highlight were the meat balls. Or perhaps the dolmades. Hard to decide. We shared the mains as well and both the moussaka and the steak tasted heavenly. Remember to order the Greek coffee with your dessert.

The ambience and layout is great, so perfect for a date or intimate occasion. With regards to the food and drink, it's a bit on the expensive side, especially taking the quality and portions into about. My prawn curry for example, had about 4 prince prawns in it. (There is a similar compliant I read here). The cocktails are great,... More

We went for lunch during Restaurant week. We have been there twice before and really enjoyed the food, but this time around the same food that got us salivating the first time left us with disappointment. The starters were great but the mains, ribeye steak was full of sinue and my portion was extremely small. We did tell the manager... More

Thank you for your comments. I am really glad that you enjoyed your previous visits to Prosopa. Upon attending to your table you informed me of the sinew in the rib-eye steaks. I offered 3 times to make you both new ones; an offer that you declined! Apart from a little strip of sinew, you did both however finish your... More
