    My wife and I and 2 friends at the Mythos Taverna before going to a show. The staff were extremely courteous and, as our time was limited, the staff pointed out which starters and mains would be quickest. The food was brilliant, and we will certainly come again soon Well done !!

    Came here to celebrate our 11 year wedding anniversary. Which I put in the notes when booking. Firstly no acknowledgment on this. We were sat in a tight cramped space, we asked to move outside they said it’s smoking area. I said I didn’t mind because it would be better than the cramped table they sat us at. We ordered for starters Kalamari, the octopus, dolmades and hummus, I asked if the hummus came with pitta as it doesn’t say on the menu. They said yes. Starters came but no pitta came. Had to ask the waitress to bring some. Mains I ordered Kleftiko. The portion is massive and it is really tasty. However it came with literally 2 potatoes. More of a chunky chip. And nothing else. But was tasty. They took our food away but then no one came back to check if we wanted more drinks or dessert. 10/15 minutes passed and no one had come to us.. so I called a waitress over and asked to see a dessert menu to which she replied sorry we don’t have any today. I don’t understand how a restaurant can have no available desserts for a start, but secondly, why didn’t anyone tell us? Why leave us sitting there ignoring us? We asked for the bill and left. It’s a real shame the service was so poor because the food is lovely and it’s a nice looking restaurant. Won’t be back. And wouldn’t recommend.

    While the food was good the portions were far too large for us so a lot of food wasted. The music in the restaurant was a bit too loud.

You are always welcome to ask for a take away box for any left over food. And the atmosphere is a lot more chilled out during the week, hopefully we can welcome you again Kevin.

    Had the pre theatre menu prior to a visit to the Hippodrome opposite. Very good portion size, excellent food and the best service from very attentive staff. Will be returning without question, fancy doing some plate smashing on a entertainment night.

    Set menu starters very good. Very big portions as for starters. Main good taste, lacking little salt yet disappointing was that it was clearly reheated rather than fresh(at least moussaka). Very friendly and efficient staff.

    Beetroot salad was disappointing but other food was amazing. Beetroot salad was on the menus stating feta and walnuts on it. The plate came with grated feta and walnut on it so I was told when I queried it. I find it hard to believe you can grate feta and could not take the walnuts at all. Shame as the rest of the food and portion size was simply delicious. Xx

    Booked a table for 3 for a Birthday meal, as we had booked early it was quiet but still a pleasant atmosphere. at no point did we feel rushed, staff were on hand if needed but not in your face, the main courses were absolutely delicious, and the puddings divine. Would certainly eat there again and it was so handy to have a meal and then on to see a show at the hippodrome which is opposite the restaurant.

Our table was at 7pm so just before the entertainment started at 8pm. It was such a great atmosphere to be in. 100% recommend this restaurant, and we will definitely be returning. Thankyou!

    We attended for a Pre theatre meal, and we were happy overall. However, the music was much too loud on our arrival, and was subsequently turned up higher, a short while later. Much to our consternation, and judging my their faces, to nearby diners too. My 2 dining companions are both hard of hearing, and have to wear hearing aids - we really struggled to hold a conversation.
