What a great little place,the food was outstanding.Traditional Greek food,soft music not too loud. A busy little place with great atmosphere. We will definitely be going again. My only criticism the mixers for my gin was Schweppes I find it a bit acid FEVERTREE mixers are the new mixers for gin,vodka much more pleasing to a nice gin I would have had more.
