We're always a little wary of Greek restaurants in the UK as they tend to be 'wrapped vine leaves and plate smashing' and nothing like the experience we have every year when we go to Crete, so have avoided them. However, after seeing a review of Theion we decided to take the plunge and try it out - so glad we did, the food, ambience and service were all outstanding, as good as the very best we've had in Crete. Of particular note was our waitress Constantina who really looked after us and even gave us a bag of wine corks as we collect them.

This is a very special restaurant.

The food was brilliant.
Particularly the Meatballs (starter) & Seabass (Main) - great if you don’t like pasta or would prefer a lighter meal.

Staff - very friendly and welcoming, knowledgable about the menu and happy to offer recommendations.

Drinks - good selection including classic cocktails.

Atmosphere - set in the beautiful Centenary Hall, exposed brick, wood and well placed lighting gave a lovely ambience.

Covid - hand sanitise at entrance, waiters/waitresses wearing masks.

Third time here now, the food and service is excellent, the decor is lovely as is the building. It has not been very busy on the times we’ve been but I if it was I’d score the ambience as excellent. Large portions and attentive staff.

We enjoyed our meal they were very helpful and accommodating. The starters were a little on the small side as we were trying to share. The food itself was good but we found the octopus to be slightly too rich.

Absolutely superb! A wet Monday lunchtime with everywhere still so quiet. Yet we were able to enjoy the surroundings and exemplary service at this find. The food was fantastic, some of the best we’ve had for such a long time. Definitely, definitely, definitely will be returning!

A lovely meal in a lovely restaurant. The staff couldn’t have been nicer, so knowledgeable and professional. The food was outstandingly good. If I’m in my super critical foodie mode, the starter of filo wrapped feta with honey 1) need more honey, 2) needed more kalonji seeds and 3) should have been fried in fresh oil, but ... it was salty sweet and good anyway! The moussaka main need one teaspoon more salt and twice as much meat but the cinnamon flavour and good use of nutmeg in the bechemal was very authentic and the pork with pasta was outstanding. These are only my minor critiques of otherwise very very good food.

We had been to Theion before and enjoyed their offerings. This was our first Sunday Lunch and was with friends. We all enjoyed the food. There was plenty to eat and it was busy which is good to see. Portions vary in size a bit so one can find that one's starter is really large. The Menu is relatively short - a good thing - and the choice of drinks should meet most demands. Seats are comfortable and it is not noisy.

Love this Restaurant and were out to Celebrate Christmas with family. My wife had Turkey which was amazing but unfortunately can’t say the same about the Lamb chops which were not quite up to usual high standard here as was a bit chewy in places, especially as we paid extra for it. Really enjoyed the Greek red wine recommendation and the deserts, the after dinner hot drinks are a treat ( I had a a delicious Cardamom hot choc which was unusual. ). Still one of my favourite Guildford restaurants.

The food I had was delicious, my friend had the moussaka which was a little dry but his other food was also delicious
The service was great
The music wasn’t great, it was authentic Greek food I’m sure there would have been some good Greek contemporary music to complement it rather than the hitch pitch we had
An interesting moment when the corner of the room became rather smokey due to a problem with the vents but luckily it was all quite safe just a little hazy!

Food was excellent and great variety of appetisers and good selection of original, creative and traditional dishes. The shrimps were not good, but love the rest.
The place and ambience is superb, one of my favourites. Great service which always makes me come back.
Prices are little high, but at least food is very good.

Lovely evening. Small but varied menu. Fantastic and knowledgable, polite staff (our waitress was fab) and good wine selection. Ambience is spot on, welcome addition to Guildford town centre and I would highly recommend for all sorts of occasions from special evenings through to casual dinner with friends.
