Saw on masterchef as being one of George Calombaris' restaurants. Authentic Greek food to share with family and friends. Delicious! Everyone loved something, I loved it all. Reasonably priced, incredible ford, lovely wait staff and great atmosphere, what more could you want.

Walked in and the décor was beautiful, the staff were welcoming and extremely helpful. My partner was excited to try a restaurant specific beer made by Two Birds, which we loved. The saganaki and halloumi we had to... More

One of the best meals I have had. Not only was the food very good - great lamb shoulder - but the service was excellent with great advice re portion sizes and how much to order then very obliging with the doggy bag. A great memorable night out

Definitely not an average Greek restaurant. In fact it's nothing like any Greek restaurant I have ever been into. It's chic. It's niche and it's very popular, but that might be on the back of the celeb chef who owns it. We have celeb chef owned restaurants here in the UK which are equally as undynamic. The food was very...
