    Warmly Welcomed arriving 15 mins early. Drinks arrived quickly and the efficient waitress took our order and food arrived quickly around 5 minutes later. The 4 starters between us was too much for us with our mains to come but the starters were tasty, especially the wild boar sausages. . Mains of pork souvlaki and meatballs were sizeable and tasty and the baklava was great. I overall tge service was great and the staff were excellent and helpful and the atmosphere was buzzing.

    Three friends and I ate here before heading over to the Hippodrome for a show. The location for theatregoers cannot be bettered, we stayed at our table until 15 minutes before the show began. We sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed the meal and everything about the restaurant. A particular mention goes to the staff : attentive and friendly at all times. Will definitely return.

    Me and my mom went before a show at the hippodrome and it was incredible. The food was so tasty and gave such an authentic feel of Greek cuisine. I especially loved the feta dip for starters and the creamy Greek yogurt!!!! Wow. Fantastic service too, everyone was very catering and kind.

    We had set meal, food was great, we had a choice of 2 small plates each to start and pitta bread portions were large, we had souvlaki pork came with rice and salad and dip, struggled to manage it all. Pastries for dessert. Would definitely return. Service was good and well managed. Ambiance was nice.

    Another excellent meal. Set in an atmospheric restaurant. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and efficient. Ideal for theatre goers as its literally opposite The Birmingham Hippodrome and the staff ensure the three courses are timed to enable the customer to finish and enjoy the show in plenty of time. If you are attending for the pre set theatre menu, my only criticism would be that you have to choose two starters from the the menu. The portions are extremely generous and two starters for the average appetite is a little overwhelming, especially when followed by another generously portioned main course. It does sadly lend itself to a lot of food waste which is a shame because the food is absolutely delicious. However, the restaurant do offer you the option of a 'take home bag'. Still highly recommend this restaurant, both food, staff and ambiance are excellent.

    Overall an excellent meal with friendly service though they were a bit quick to take your plate when not finished sometimes. The atmosphere and background music is good. Only gripe is the extortionate price for wine which was a shocker.

    Absolutely wonderful food but far too much! Recommend not to have 2 starters each in the set menu as you won't eat your main course! The starters are huge and you probably only need 1between 2 of you. We couldn't eat our mains and it was such a waste of food.

    Enjoyed a great meze but at £160 for 4 it's on the pricier side for a family meal although delicious. Huge portions! Only one dance on the Saturday night we were there.....left at 10pm so maybe we were too early for entertainment suggested on website?

    It felt like we had been transported to Greece. The mixed grill was delicious and the meats melted in our mouths. The retsina wine took some getting used to, though, but it got better the more we drank, and we finished our meal with a glass of ouzo each, to get the most authentic Greek experience possible. We’ll definitely go again.
