    Food was fantastic and so was the surroundings and atmosphere . Our waitress seemed as though she wasn’t wanting to be there , quite short speaking to us and generally felt like she wasn’t interested . All the other staff we came in contact with were fantastic though so they made up for her

    Items on the menu were marked as gluten free but when my friend who’s coeliac ordered the gluten free items and explained her allergies, the waiter said all the gluten free items are cooked on the same grill or in the same oil and on the same board as non gluten items. We were shocked we cancelled our order, items shouldn’t be marked as gluten free if they’re cooked with glutinous items. It is poorly marked and misleading, it is dangerous for people to eat the food marked as gf if it’s directly cooked with other food. This was absolutely shocking

    Brought my family for a pre theatre meal and we were not disappointed. It was also a 60th birthday. We ordered of the normal menu not their pre theatre menu. The food and service was excellent and my sister who is vegetarian absolutely loved her mousaka. We all look forward to coming back very soon.

    We visited for the pre-theatre dinner menu, the choice of dishes, the quality and quantity of food are all excellent. Staff are attentive and present without hovering over you. The houmous and pitta was delicious, I recommend the chicken souvlaki and the stifado, both of which were excellent. Overall a lovely dining experience and very good value for money.

    The menu choice is confusing. As a party of 6, 4 wanted a meze and 2 didn’t. We were told that it was either all have it or no one could have it. There are 2 separate menus, both with different meze options but again we couldn’t have any of them if the whole table didn’t want it! We asked why and were simply told, “it’s the rules”! Having had to take our second choice, we waited an hour and a half between starters and main courses. They were filming a promotional video whilst we were there and most of the staff were engaged with that rather than serving customers. There was some Greek dancing which included someone throwing already smashed plates over the dancing staff! There was only 1 other table but the staff and the manager weren’t interested in serving. They had put a 10% service charge on which we insisted was removed. The food when we got it was good but unacceptable service, menu choices and delay negated any feel good factor at this restaurant. Recommend you go elsewhere where they appreciate your custom.

    Restaurant advertises a pre theatre menu but you need to ask for it. 1 (very good) waitress covering the whole restaurant with the very occasional help from another, leading to very slow service. Most people would struggle to be out in time for any theatre performance. Despite this, food very nice.

    Great place for food a stone's throw away from the Hippodrome. The setting is very nice and you can watch the world go by as you eat. We we're going to the theatre afterwards, so it was ideally placed for this. The food was beautiful, the service was great and the staff were very friendly. A really nice restaurant in a great setting that reminded us of our trip to Cyprus a couple of years ago. Will definitely visit again!

    Okay if you like lots of chips, we had the mix grill to share for 2 people. The meal tray is basically bulked up with an excessive amount of chips of which most got left,not really value for the cost of £45

    The food & service were good, as we had experienced before however, the experience was spoiled by being seated at a table inbetween the toilet on one side, and the door to the outside smoking area on the other. I’ll make a mental note to request an alternate table next time.
