Critic's review

Graham Howe

Food
Taste your way through a delicious platter of your favourite meze (with a selection of twenty classics available). Don’t miss the white bait, spanakopita, grilled sardines in coarse salt, haloumi, fried baby marrow, mussels in tomato and feta or grilled prawns with lemon and olive juice. Mop up the sauces with warm pita bread and a trio of dips (hummus, taramosalata and tzatziki).

The flavours are sun-splashed Mediterranean, authentic expressions of traditional Greek dishes down to mamma’s homemade moussaka (available in a vegetarian version too). But leave room for the hearty mains: a seafood skewer, signature slow-roasted spit roast lamb, tender lamb souvlaki or stifado beef and tomato stew – all served with lashings of olive oil, rock salt and oreganum. Good, fresh ingredients, generous portions and great value make this family-owned Greek restaurant a waterfront landmark.

There are good alternatives for vegetarians – and a special kiddies menu with half portions and prices. Leave space for a strong cup of Greek coffee with ouzo to wash down a stand-out dessert like chocolate hazelnut baklava, loukoumades (doughnuts in spicy honey syrup) or dodoni feta cheesecake with sour cherry syrup.

Drinks
They have an extensive cocktail menu and an award-winning Cape wine list with vintage wines, served by a knowledgeable sommelier.

Service
Warm and attentive, from the waiters to the sommelier.

Ambience
It's family-friendly: lively and relaxed. Here you get warm Greek hospitality in a fabulous waterfront setting with spectacular terrace views.

And…
Gyros (lamb, beef or chicken pitas) are served from 11am to 6pm. Share a meze set menu for four or more (R220 to R280).
