User reviews

  • Spiros - The Greek is Local... and boy is the Greek definitely local. Authentic Greek cuisine deliciously prepared with only the finest ingredients. The friendly, efficient staff make the dining experience that much more enjoyable and the hands on owner/ manager Spiro makes you feel as though you have been welcomed with open arms into a typical Greek family home to sit an have a meal with the family. Fridays nights in the Spiros courtyard are a truly magical experience with the addition of the house DJ spinning some rocking tunes and transforming your other wise casual Friday evening dinner into a great party to kick off the weekend. A hugely family orientated eatery where kids are not only allowed but welcomed with open arms and catered for with a fully equipped indoor play area, out door climbing frame and delicious kids menu. We run a tourist information center in Hout Bay and Spiros is always the first establishment I recommend to our overseas visitors.

  • Spiro the owner is 1 in a million, not only does he welcome his customers with open arms but you are lightly to get yourself a kiss in the process. His staff are well trained and are brilliant at what they do. The food is authentic Greek and the atmosphere is laid back and very friendly. Our family has become part of their family.
    It's a kids paradise and it shows by the amount of families that frequent it. If you are "afraid" of kids there are separate rooms where you can enjoy your Greek in a little more peace and quite. We are local Hout Bay residents and Spiro's is our local - not only for the food but also for special occasions, sport and a couple of yummy cocktails. The Greek is indeed local.

  • A lovely place with authentic, tasty Greek food and a fabulous playroom for kids. Service was attentive and staff were very knowledgable. The kids playroom is a real winner - one of the best I have seen! Not so sure about the Greek coffee.

  • Going Greek is not good for those of us who cannot for whatever reason eat garlic. Happily Spiro's in Hout Bay (also open for lunch when it's a calm haven) have staff who get it, and it's never a problem to have it excluded. A great casual but consistently good venue.

  • A true Greek resturant feels like you sitting in Greece enjoying the great surrounding and delicious Greek food - when you walk out you feel proud to have experienced the time there. Thank you for a great time and lovely food - will come back, keep up the great work!

  • How could we not know about this gem in Hout Bay? A chance stop for lunch today made us discover this excellent Greek eatery. Brilliant service by a "new" waitress, beautiful settings and a delicious menu. We will be back soon as there are so many dishes to try out. Today we tried the dolmades, chips, squid heads, calamari, coffees... Everything was fresh and delicious.

  • Spiro’s has become like a part of the family! The one that’s not really related to you but has become more important than most family members! They make you feel like part of their bigger extended family, just happen to get together to celebrate for no reason!
    It’s like visiting the “mamas” house - you always walk away feeling loved, and the bonus, the kiddies love it too! Truly a place of celebration for young and old!

  • We adore Spiro's and love going here with the busy toddler because of their cute dress-up room and jungle gym. The food is fantastic - real proper Greek fare - and reasonably priced. On our last visit my chicken livers and stuffed calamari were both a little bit over-salty, just watch the salt pot. But we always have a great time here. Also love the little nooks and crannies and the spot at the back is just begging for some serious ouzo downing (without the toddler!).

  • Spiro's remains a welcome addition to Hout Bay. Lots of families with inside and outdoor play areas for the kids, and quieter areas for those without. A great and varied Greek menu with friendly efficient service, owner-managed and well run.

  • Spiro's ticks all the boxes, The service is outstanding, the food is awesome, you can't beat the atmosphere, it's the most kid-friendly restaurant I have ever come across - they have a babysitter to watch the kids, dress-up, movies, jungle gym and the list goes on. Spiro's has become family and the restaurant a home away from home. I always feel comfortable, happy and well looked after when there and walk away with a smile on my face. We have all our parties there, kids and adults and most of our friends do to. A huge thumbs up for the best restaurant in town!

  • We had a pretty poor kleftiko here. For really great Greek food, Marika's gets our vote. This place is ok if you have kids I think - they cater well for that. The service was good.

  • Been a few times now and just had the Lamb Shank recently (Huge and melt in your mouth). Great place, great food, great for kids and fantastic atmosphere. When you have been to a place on a few occasions and it is always good then it means they are doing something right. Keep up the good work Spiro, you are becoming Hout Bays best.

  • We had our baby shower at Spiros and loved the hospitality, atmosphere and food. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the platters we ordered were yummy! Also, Spiros has a very relaxed and fun energy; it was perfect for chilling with our friends. The courtyard (has a roof and heaters so you can even sit there when its raining) where we sat feels like a cool Mediterranean beach bar and the inside of the restaurant is equally pretty and cozy. Thanks to Spiro and their team for their excellent service.

  • A huge thank you to Spiros for hosting our Lange Strategic Communications Christmas year end party. The venue and food were superb, the atmosphere beyond what we expected and the party celebration and breaking of plates just unbelievable. And, of course, the loukoumades were delicious as always! Thank you for your contribution - it’s no small wonder it was voted the best party we’ve ever had. I take great delight in saying “it’s the way Greeks do things!” We will be back!

  • This is not fine dining, nor does it pretend to be and nor should it be. This is a classic Greek taverna which rivals anything I have tried in Greece. The food is very reasonably priced, fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is perfect for lazy, relaxed family dining. I just love going here.

  • A simple Greek restaurant – just as it should be. I loved my Haloumi, and my husband had a fabulous lamb dish. The entire experience was unfussy and wonderfully chilled, and although I’ve only been for supper, it appears that lunches on Sunday are very popular.
