If you’re in or around Hull and hankering for a meal that’s a little bit different, give The Aegean a whirl. This Greek taverna-style is a hit among locals because it’s casual yet still feels like a treat, the decor is cosy yet stylish, the staff are exceptionally dedicated and, of course, the food goes above and beyond. The Aegean is a small restaurant on Anlaby Road, just down from the KCOM Stadium and Hull Paragon Interchange and a perfect pit stop for a Greek fill if you’re out and about in the city. Do yourself a favour and reserve a table now.
Superb food, great service and friendly.went with friends for good night out. Been before,Will definitely go again. Staff are brilliant, atmosphere is great. Highly recommended.
Fantastic food could not fault it and very nicely sized portions, very friendly staff could not fault anything and we will definitely be coming back.
The Friendly and helpful staff made our night very enjoyable, the restaurant was very nicely decorated with some Greek music being played in the background,we choose a mixed fish starter which was big enough for two followed by a mixed Souvlaki and a pork Souvlaki accompanied by a feta salad, washed down with a carafe of house white wine, all for just a touch over £50,which we thought was very reasonable, we will return.
Excellant service.and the food delicious.... Highly reccomended....quick and polite .the staff are always there to help.if you get stuck.on the many meals you want to choose..from.....
We asked for the Meze, 20 something pound per head (for 4), which was supposed to include starters and mains with a selection of fish, meats and salads, but asked that there be no pork (no other reason but not liking pork). We were told if we don’t like pork then don’t bother ordering the meze as it’s full of pork. To me that’s not a ‘selection’ and obviously it’s to increase profits for the owner as pork is much cheaper than other meats. Hey ho so we decided to order individually instead. We chose a selection of starters to share which we enjoyed, and wish we had just bought more of them instead of having mains. The mains were mediocre. Not much flavor, ie lemon chicken was not lemony. Chicken souvlaki was dry, and the lamb I ordered was nice and soft but not much of it. It was a small ball of lamb bulked out with large chunks of potatoes in a dish accompanied with rice. We also ordered the calamari (which comes on there own and plenty of it) and a portion of chips. To share we also had a Greek salad which the waiter prepared in front of us. This was very nice and I would order again. Deserts were showed to us on a tray which I thought was a good idea to see what you actually get rather than a description. Again they were lacking in flavor. The Almond cake did not taste of almonds, and the baklava wasn’t fresh and soft like it’s supposed to be. The best one was probably the lemon cheesecake. Drinks: we ordered the wine recommended by the waiter which was obviously the most the expensive (£25), a bottle of sparkling water and a Diet Coke. Usually when you order red wine at restaurants the waiter brings a jug of water for the table, or at least asks you if you want water. We asked for some and the waiter brought us a small bottle (enough for 1). When we said no we all wanted tap water he replied ‘sorry we don’t do tap water, only sell bottled water. What restaurant doesn’t have a tap? The ones were the owners want to make more money out of you. If, and a very strong if, we were to return we would order a selection of starters to share, a Greek salad and some calamari. I think we would have enjoyed that more.
Had a lovely time at Aegean. Firstly the staff were so nice, friendly and helpful. We felt welcomed and comfortable. The waiter gave us suggestions on food choices, bringing us drinks before we ordered. We had spicy feta dip and imam to start which can with bread, for main course I had grilled sea bass with xorta (Greek greens) and my mum swordfish souvlaki. Everything was very fresh and superbly cooked. The waiter even offered to season my greens ‘greek’ style and he added olive oil lemon and salt and mixed for me! Unfortunately not enough room for desert but the desert tray they offered us presented some tempting sweets. Will be back, thank you.
You booked us in on Saturday after about 5 minuets the Aegean Rang to say they were fully booked at 7 pm and it was a surprise to hear this they said you should not have taken bookings for them. After chatting we were lucky to get booked in at 6pm we had a great meal and loved the Restaurant the staff were so friendly and very helpful could not have asked for any where better to go for a Greek meal. Thank you Aegean for a lovely time we will be coming back
Our first visit. Pleasant open plan design and very nicely laid tables. The staff were very welcoming and we were able to order our drinks quickly. The wine list was 'all Greek' to me so I took the waiter's advice, and both the white and red were very good. We all thought the food was excellent-it was just like being back in Greece without the sunshine! And full marks for the attentive service. Will certainly go again.
Amazing food. Felt like been in Cyprus. Just a shame we didn't have time for pudding, this was due to waiting around 10-15 mins for the menu at the start of the meal and then waiting 15-20 mins after mains with no offer of desert (as we had to give up the Table after 2 hours which was no worries as we knew about it) Would definitely go back though.
Booked online with special food requests & upon arrival at restaurant staff were aware of our needs. Greeted with a warm welcome from waiters. Shown to table in a busy restaurant. Tables are very close together so you do not get that intimate dining experience but there was a good atmosphere with traditional greek music in the background. . We received good quick service. Good food & drink at a great price. Nothing was too much bother. Will definitely be returning .
