If you’ve ever been on holiday in Greece and found yourself reminiscing about the delicious cuisine you tried while you were there, head to Simply Greek Taverna and relive the experience all over again. From its quintessentially Greek decor down to its menu of authentic dishes, Simply Greek Taverna brings a little piece of the Mediterranean to Newcastle's Bigg Market. Begin your meal in true Greek style with some mezze, like the spicy sausages, halloumi saganaki, meat balls or vine leaves, before moving on to your main. We recommend the kleftiko (lamb joint slowly baked in the oven and flavoured with herbs and garlic) or the moussaka. To guarantee a table at this charming taverna in Newcastle’s City Centre, make a reservation in advance!
Me and my family had an a great experience Food and staff excellent live music excellent great value for your money would recommend the Simply Greek Tavern to everyone.
Excellent food and staff. Great night with Greek music which made you feel you could be in Greece rather than Newcastle. Will be back again soon
A* Fantastic food,huge portions and great service. Never fails to impress. Nothing is too much for the staff here and the restaurant itself really does take you back to Greece
Excellent service and food will definitely return. We had the set meze and the amount of food and variety was amazing the staff were helpful a little gem.
Simply Greek Tavern in the centre of Newcastle is very authentic. The staff are very nice and the food was fantastic,we had decided to go for a pre-curser meal as we're off to Crete again in a few weeks.The food was fantastic and very authentic if you closed your eyes you were sitting in a taverna on the centre of any greek town.The food was up there with some of the best I've tasted and it was washed down with a couple of Mythos.Will definitly be going back for another meal when we get back off our jolies.
Food was great as always at the unspoilt Simply Greek Tavern, along with the fun and welcoming staff. Staff went above and beyond to ensure we were given full attention, especially as it was a Birthday celebration (decorations on the table and complementary cake!!). Would definitely recommend and will be visiting again shortly.
Sunday 7th May We'd booked a table for 8, for a big family meal during the afternoon We had a great time, food was delicious & plenty of it. Staff we're great, nothing was to much trouble even with two teenagers ! There was a lovely atmosphere to the place which was only improved by the live music provided in spells across the afternoon. We've been coming here years & it has never let us down & the new menu with new dishes makes us want to come back again & again.
It was really good, friendly welcoming staff, quick to serve, quick to remove dirty plates, attentive when needed without pestering you, lovely lovely food, we used a groupon for 4 of us but we dont need a groupon to return, which we shall do, it was great authnentic greek food and plenty of it, it took us right back to crete which we all consider our second home, the food was tasty and plentiful, we cannot praise it enough, it was FAB
The staff gave my girlfriend and I a warm welcome. Our starters and mains came out in a very timely manner. The drinks and food were well priced and the staff took the time to speak to us when we were dining. They had live Greek music on valentines which really added to the atmosphere. It was our second visit at this restaurant and we would go back a third time.
Have been to The Simply Greek Tavern several times before and really enjoy the food and the general atmosphere, staff are also very friendly and prices very competitive. However on this occasion The Greek Tavern have employed a singer and a pianist, the tavern is not overly large and the music was deafening, it was so bad we had to complain. There were seven of us and none of us enjoyed the evening, totally down to the excessively loud music, we had to shout to make ourselves heard. Sorry to say we will not be returning till this situation is rectified.
