Excellent food and friendly attentive staff. We will visit again.
Great food, great location, wonderful staff. Our table looked over George Square and the Council Chambers building. The restaurant itself is in a grand Victorian building and a pleasant interior. We shared a meze selection that included a light spanakopita and an exceptional dolma, delicately and aromatically spiced. My main was a good portion of a well cooked giouvetsi accompanied by a bottle of "Mythos" beer. The meat was tender and the orzo "al dente" but, best of all, the dish was beautifully spiced and seasoned. My two less adventurous fellow diners took the chicken souvlaki and both enjoyed it. The portions were generous enough to preclude ordering desserts. The staff were prompt and courteous and the bill of £55 for the three of us was value for money.
Starters were good and tasty, arrived quite quickly. We then had to wait for over and hour for our main courses and had to ask how long it would be, no one came back to update us, the food arrived and one had to be sent back as it was cold and one of the others looked like it had been slapped onto the plate, the other food was fine. We then ordered 4 portions of cheesecake only to be told there were only two portions left and no other cakes to be had (this was 4pm on 9th December). We did complain to the waitress about the few issues we had and she was "raging". We did eventually get a grudged apology and 20% discount from our bill. We will not be returning anytime soon. Irrespective of the fact that the restaurant was busy your customers should come first, keep them informed, make sure their food is tasty, well presented and hot and do not run out of desserts!!!
This is the real Greece. We had the mezze menu and really enjoyed it. The dips were great - a mile away from the stuff in commercial tubs from a supermarket. The dolmades were moist and tasty, and the Greek sausage was full of tasty herbs. The marinades used on the souvlaki were lovely. The kadaifi was moist and fresh - not dried up as it sometimes can be, and came with some very good ice cream. The Greek coffee was the real thing. The wines were mostly Greek or Cypriot. Just to complete the atmosphere we topped and tailed the meal with ouzo and Metaxa. with slightly less chewy beef in an otherwise tasty stifado this would have been a 6. The staff here are all very friendly and pretty efficient.
I was recommended this restautant and absolutely loved the place. The decor was just perfect, made you feel like you were actually in Greece. Staff were very helpful and obliging, explaining the menu very well. It's very much a family business and most of the waiting staff appeared to be Greek. The rose house wine recommended by our waiter was perfect for the meal. The meal itself was faultless. We had a mixture of meals from souvlaki to steak, each one was delicious. Several of my party of 6 live in Spain and felt the meal exceeded expectation. We will most definately be back here.
Fantastic vibrant place and great, helpful experienced staff.I've had a table of 5 booked for my wife birthday and everything been above my expectations apart from this that was a friday night usualy most busy time when staff members and chefs are tired and bombarded with orders but they doing well under pressure.Food been very goood and portion sizes enourmous.Prices also very suprising.Waiting time less than average at simillar places on friday night.For a first time visit strongly recommended.I know what I'm saying because I'm a chef with 20 years experience and I can apppreciate somebody else work ethic and effort.
A fantastic location on George Square. The atmosphere is very warm and friendly. The house wine was lovely and fresh. The food was absolutely delicious. The taziki was just as we remembered it from our visits to Greece. The food was really authentic and rich. We enjoyed lovely village sausage, greek burgers and souvlaki. It was absolutely lovely. We finished by sharing chocolate fudge cake. The staff were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We will certainly be back and it was very good value. Worth every minute.
