Odyssey Restaurant is a little chunk of Greece transported into the heart of Chesterfield, offering customers a journey of authentic flavours, sounds and the atmosphere of Greece.

Owned and run by a Greek family, Odyssey is based in the centre of Chesterfield town on 1-3 Knifesmithgate, in a traditional English building and what used to be known as the old Queen’s Head. The owners have managed to bring the building back to life by marrying old English and Greek tradition, maintaining the beauty of the building, but also enhancing it with sites and the aroma of Greece.

Among the many menu choices, one can find lovely Greek salad (horiatiki) to chicken, pork, vegetable or prawn skewers or a classic moussaka, rabbit stifado or meatballs with goat’s cheese. Mediterranean flavours and love for cooking Greek authentic recipes is the menu inspiration.

Overall everything was good people where friendly and the service was fast but not pushy the host was very clued up on everything on the menu, the only downside was the price it wasn’t extortionate but for what it was it was quite expensive, not somewhere I could go every week but would definitely recommend for a special occasion, and would go again.

It is a nice looking resturant and well laid out. I was made to feel very welcome; appreciated as it was my first meal after moving from London to North East Derbyshire. All the food was nice, as was the wine.

The welcome was very good. The table was somewhat jammed in between two others. The food was, as always superb. The staff were very polite and pleasant. The main course took longer than usual to arrive. The atmosphere was good, despite being very close to other diners. Food and drinks are quite dear. However, the value for money is good because the food and staff are excellent. It was good to be served Ouzo, as always, on arrival. We were also given Mastiha liqueur at the end because it was an anniversary.

Pleasant setting, prompt, efficient service. Chicken skewers moist and well cooked but needed a sauce. We felt the mixed meze was overpriced and needed another texture like raw crunchy vegetables. Small beers were expensive.
