Meal and wine at Christakis Greek Restaurant was excellent as always. Staff were attentive, polite and courteous. Prices affordable, background music good, service was excellent although it was 5.30 when we arrived and there was only five more people there. Overall perfect meal at a outstanding restaurant.

Fabulous food and huge portions. You won't go hungry here. There were 5 of us and we all had starters and a main plus 3 desserts, 2 rounds of drinks and 2 extra garlic breads all for £71!! They do a special of Mon-Wed but the quality and portion sizes are the same as the full price menu. Lovely extra touches too like a bowl of olives, plate of fruit and sweets. Food was so fresh and tasty. We all loved it and will be back.

Christakis is a lovely restaurant. The staff were very attentive and the food was gorgeous! We had the 2 course set meals and were not disappointed! Portions were huge and the taste was unreal.. Would definitely return here! Our lovely waiter even noticed it was my birthday and brought me a slice of cake with a candle in :) Cant wait to come back and get the chicken casserole again!

Straight forward Greek food, cooked well and very tasty. Staff friendly and cheerful. Spacious , bright and comfortable restaurant. We went early evening (7pm) so it was busy but nowhere near full so the atmosphere was quiet which suited us fine. Can take your own wine, always a bonus, although theChristakis wine list is fairly priced not extortionate. There is a corkage cost per person sharing the wine. Will certainly return.

The service is excellent with friendly pleasant staff who genuinely seem to want to make your time there as nice as possible. Lovely good quality food. Value for money is excellent. I go every so often and find it just as good if not better each time.
