We have always had excellent service and delicious food here. The weekday two-course lunch menu is particularly good value.

it was fathers day but we were not informed when booking that it was a fixed 3 course and no other options. the food was pleasant but not outstanding. at over £30 per person with minimal drinks so i feel expensive. the staff were pleasant and the service was good.

It was very noisy and the service was very slow. We asked twice for the seafood to be omitted from our meze but it still turned up.

Went on Saturday. Second time going and was a lot busier this time. Food was delicious and restaurant is lovely. However I did on 3 occasions have to try and get their attention to order drinks. Also throughout the meal we wasn’t asked if everything was ok or whether they could get us anything. So maybe this is something for them to try. Will definitely go back again.

Went on a quiet Wed night (just us and another table) to celebrate my daughters birthday. All was fine but nothing that blew me away. Service was friendly but no special mention of my daughter even though she was wearing her birthday badge. A good place to meet with friends but not sure about celebrating special occasions

Had a lovely meal here - the food was excellent and can thoroughly recommend the sea bass - cooked to perfection. First time we had visited and certainly won’t be the last.

The owners were delightful - very friendly and warm. The staff were rushed off their feet as it was a busy night but the delay in getting food was very welcome as the portion sizes were extremely generous so we had no complaints with this as were not in any hurry.

A bit pricey. For the same money could’ve gone to El Vaquero. Waitress couldn’t understand English and long wait for food. Food was nice though.

Since we discovered Panorama last August, my wife and I have eaten there several times with different friends, and everyone we have taken there has been impressed.

My latest experience was a weekday lunch with two former work colleagues. It was my first lunchtime visit, and I was delighted to find a fixed price lunch menu that offers two courses for several pounds less than choosing from the à la carte menu. The choice was limited to five starters and six mains, but for both courses there was a pleasing variety of dishes that included vegetarian options.

Between us, the three of us chose three different starters and three different mains, and all were nicely presented and delicious. The service was, as always, superb.

I lunch with these friends two or three times a year, and we have visited various restaurants. But both said that next time they would like to return to Panorama, even though neither lives anywhere near Whetstone.

I was disappointed by the quality of the food and the service provided. I’d looked at other reviews and found a 4 star rating so I was expecting 4 star food and service. The service was very slow, the wait staff seemed to be overwhelmed by the work they had to do and there was a general feel of disorder. The food I had was bland, not all brought out together and there was too much pasta.
I was out with my partner to celebrate my birthday but I felt a little underwhelmed by the experience unfortunately.

Food very good. Disappointed by the service - seemed to have been forgotten about by the waitress post mains, and another seemed extremely apologetic when we mentioned we were still waiting for desert menus after 30+ mins.

Great good. Massive Portions. We went for the meze combo and couldn't finish all. All tasted well and service was great. Even a free slice of cake for our bday boy. Will definitely come back. One improvement is the ambience which could be improved with some Greek music and pictures. A bit to modern look.

We were recommended Panorama restaurant and it was a great one. The Greek cuisine was authentic and very tasty. Wine list had a good selection. Being a Wednesday evening it was a very quiet which suited myself, my husband and our dear neighbours ! However, I will definitely come again on a Friday or Saturday as I am sure the atmosphere would be livelier.

Really nice restaurant. Lovely interior and really friendly staff. We were the only people at the restaurant as it was during the Christmas period. But my large family appreciated that they stayed open for us and gave us great food and great service.

Thanks a lot!

Once again, an excellent meal served by delightful staff in a pleasant environment. Our only problem on this occasion was having our quiet conversation disturbed by the group of middle-aged men at the next table, who were talking loudly and occasionally swearing. But you can't blame the restaurant for that, and in the run-up to Christmas you have to expect large, noisy parties.

Lovely restaurant that doesn't pack you in, unlike some of the other ones in the area.

It's slightly further away from the main restaurant scene, making it a quieter experience overall, perfect for a date night.

Food was lovely ad the service was outstanding

Panorama is one of the best Greek restaurants we have found locally. Great menu, really friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. A typical cypriot menu with some unusual dishes not always found in Greek restaurants. Definitely worth a visit - I would highly recommend it. Vanessa Georgiou
