The pork belly was too salty & so was the chicken meat in the souvlaki, the other meals were fine.
The staff were friendly & efficient, nice atmosphere.
Thank you

We enjoyed our dinner for two. Service was efficient & attentive.
Food was very good, tasty & to our knowledge authentic Greek.
Wouldn’t hesitate to eat their again as there were many choices on the menu we would like to try!

The octupus was a spectacular signature-worthy dish! Wow!. Unfortunately the potatoes were undercooked, no seasoning and no flavour. The "pumpkin salad" comprised of tons of rocket interspersed with the tiniest little cubes of very cold and tasteless pumpkin and crumbed fetta, no discernable dressing, nice fleshy olives. We had to ask twice for salt and pepper and noticed other tables doing the same. The calamari was okay, again more rocket than anything else. Staff were friendly.

As always the food and service was AMAZING! Our favourite dish was no longer on the menu (please bring back the grilled octopus and watermelon salad!) but we tried a few new things and adored the chicken and clay-baked lamb!

We arrived post lockdown fortunately but certain restrictions were placed which caused some consternation re identification. Offers to assist from the staff were hesitant but eventually helpful. This could have been done earlier with some more consideration but we eventually jumped that hurdle.

The restaurant was quiet which suited us and we ordered our food and drinks. Sadly we might have ordered one particular dish but it takes 45 minutes to cook and we were not advised of this early enough to order so that we could all eat together. Again we moved on and were all complimentary of our meals which we enjoyed thoroughly.

I think if the service staff were more on the ball with these issues then the dining experience would be first class.

We loved your venue, beautiful cosy place to enjoy a quiet meal
We did feel that our mains were rushed with us only just having finished our entree before our mains were served very quickly
Other than that everything else were absolutely perfect and we thank you for a lovely night

A memorable Mother's Day Lunch. Excellent food, great selection of local and Greek wines. Although at the beginning we got off to an unhappy start concerning the strict 2 hour lunch meal time. All was more than surpassed by the excellent food and service by a happy team of waitresses.

Great ambience. Service is wonderful. Loved the fish I had. My partner did not like the
chicken dish. They took it off the bill and she ordered another dish, eggplant which she loved. The mojitos are really good. Food prices comparable to surrounding restaurants. Would definitely go again.

The food was good, but not outstanding, and the baclava was unfortunately not good, very soggy and didn’t taste fresh. So for $14, I’d been expecting the best baclava I’ve ever had, and it was the opposite for me. It’s in a really nice location, but just feels expensive for what it is.

Beautiful setting in the old customs building but seating arrangements seemed a bit odd. The food was delicious, a little too much for two (the clay baked lamb) and couldn’t have on its own - way too much meat. Great to share with a group of 4 with salad and potatoes, this then would be a great value meal. Wine list was average and pretty expensive more than 100% mark up on shelf prices. The service was good and welcoming.

Enjoyed the banquet style menu, all the courses, but thought that one scoop of ice cream divided by 4 people for dessert was a little mean, especially as we paid ten percent surcharge on the day.

Lovely food, really good service by friendly staff. Nice surroundings and generally quite atmosphere regrettably punctuated by a noisy table with no regard for other diners. Apart from that, a really good experience and we shall return. Our table of four was most impressed! Well done!

Great food and great taste(s). Lamb chops, pork belly & roast potatoes. Table service, particularly drinks, was very slow meaning the venue missed the opportunity to sell us extra drinks which is a loss for them.

We enjoyed our choice of food and drink, the venue is relaxing and peaceful. Courteous staff. Side salads are large for two or more people unless one person would like to eat a lot of salad. Would recommend. We will go back.

Great food and lovely staff, but we went early in the evening and occasionally they seemed a bit distracted with updating the computer or tidying the bar area and not keeping an eye on their customers needs.
However, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The clay baked lamb was to die for!
We will certainly be returning
