Third time here now, the food and service is excellent, the decor is lovely as is the building. It has not been very busy on the times we’ve been but I if it was I’d score the ambience as excellent. Large portions and attentive staff.

We enjoyed our meal they were very helpful and accommodating. The starters were a little on the small side as we were trying to share. The food itself was good but we found the octopus to be slightly too rich.

Really excellent food in a lovely environment. I was there having lunch with my father and there was a business meeting happening on the table next to us - it felt perfect for both situations. Great restaurant.

Absolutely superb! A wet Monday lunchtime with everywhere still so quiet. Yet we were able to enjoy the surroundings and exemplary service at this find. The food was fantastic, some of the best we’ve had for such a long time. Definitely, definitely, definitely will be returning!

A lovely meal in a lovely restaurant. The staff couldn’t have been nicer, so knowledgeable and professional. The food was outstandingly good. If I’m in my super critical foodie mode, the starter of filo wrapped feta with honey 1) need more honey, 2) needed more kalonji seeds and 3) should have been fried in fresh oil, but ... it was salty sweet and good anyway! The moussaka main need one teaspoon more salt and twice as much meat but the cinnamon flavour and good use of nutmeg in the bechemal was very authentic and the pork with pasta was outstanding. These are only my minor critiques of otherwise very very good food.

We had been to Theion before and enjoyed their offerings. This was our first Sunday Lunch and was with friends. We all enjoyed the food. There was plenty to eat and it was busy which is good to see. Portions vary in size a bit so one can find that one's starter is really large. The Menu is relatively short - a good thing - and the choice of drinks should meet most demands. Seats are comfortable and it is not noisy.

Love this Restaurant and were out to Celebrate Christmas with family. My wife had Turkey which was amazing but unfortunately can’t say the same about the Lamb chops which were not quite up to usual high standard here as was a bit chewy in places, especially as we paid extra for it. Really enjoyed the Greek red wine recommendation and the deserts, the after dinner hot drinks are a treat ( I had a a delicious Cardamom hot choc which was unusual. ). Still one of my favourite Guildford restaurants.

The food I had was delicious, my friend had the moussaka which was a little dry but his other food was also delicious
The service was great
The music wasn’t great, it was authentic Greek food I’m sure there would have been some good Greek contemporary music to complement it rather than the hitch pitch we had
An interesting moment when the corner of the room became rather smokey due to a problem with the vents but luckily it was all quite safe just a little hazy!

Food was excellent and great variety of appetisers and good selection of original, creative and traditional dishes. The shrimps were not good, but love the rest.
The place and ambience is superb, one of my favourites. Great service which always makes me come back.
Prices are little high, but at least food is very good.

Lovely evening. Small but varied menu. Fantastic and knowledgable, polite staff (our waitress was fab) and good wine selection. Ambience is spot on, welcome addition to Guildford town centre and I would highly recommend for all sorts of occasions from special evenings through to casual dinner with friends.

Very impressed with interior, ambience and friendly service and excited at the arrival of a modern Greek restaurant in Guildford. The food was very tasty but I would say home-cooking style and not as refined as the ‘modern’ Greek menu promises. We made the mistake of starting with olives and bread followed by a starter, then mains by which time I was defeated by the huge portions. I chose the octopus with split pea purée which sounded very delicate with its onion pearls but was filling enough to be a main course - I also felt that it was overpriced at £17 for something that tasted pretty much like (a very good) sausage and mash. I followed with the cockerel with orzo pasta which was probably a bad choice after the octopus as it was again a very hearty, filling dish - more pasta than cockerel, and although I am quite happy to get stuck into chicken on the bone, it might have put some people off. My husband’s spinach pie starter on the other hand was excellent. For main course he had the pork stew, I think, which was good, hearty home -cooking. No room for pudding but coffee was great (even the decaf!). In brief: great if you’re starving, otherwise choose carefully as the portions are very generous which in theory is nice, but you end up feeling over-full and leaving a lot of food on your plate. I would definitely go again but would go easy on the ordering - friends have been several times and really enjoyed the food.
