    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.

    Lovely food and choice in the theatre menu, however it would say you get a bit too much food so there is some waste. The food quality was wonderful and the menu value for money. Maybe just a little less.

    After recently moving back to Birmingham after living in Greece for 2 years I was craving for some good authentic Greek food. The food was incredible, all the smells and flavours of being in Greece. Staff were so on it even with a full restaurant and large parties. After a little while a dj came and then plate smashing with the staff and guests which was a pleasant surprise. Will definitely be back for the food!

    Table of 5. All 5 had to order the set menu even if one actually didn’t want to eat that much, can’t see why they can’t serve off the main menu & give the others the set menu. Very slow service, felt like we were forgotten as we were sat around the corner. Shame as it was a special birthday lunch.
