This unassuming family-run restaurant celebrates authentic Greek cuisine with a good selection of meze dishes, making it tricky to settle on just one entrée. Order a few and dip in and out of superb flavours of the Mediterranean. Sardela gemisti (garlicky stuffed sardines) are plump and smack of the sea, served with rocket and drizzled with lemon juice.
The saganaki (deep-fried halloumi) encased in flaky phyllo pastry also impressed, as did the plokamia (squid tentacles), deep-fried and served with creamy skordalia dip. Other options include garlic grilled mussels, a rich brinjal, halloumi and peppadew stack, and anchovies cooked with rocket and onion.
The menu is simple, but everything is home-cooked in the tiny kitchen – people flock here for the delicious and well-priced prawns, served by the kilogram. Order them with chips or rice to soak up the mouth-watering sauce.
A tender kleftiko (baked lamb shank) melts off the bone, traditional souvlaki chicken or beef kebabs are served with warm pita bread and tzatziki, or opt for garithes souvlaki (garlic-and-olive oil-marinated prawn kebabs), served with rice. A specials menu changes depending on what’s fresh.
Traditional Greek pastries are on offer for dessert, the standout being a sensational baklava.
A succinct wine list includes local varietals and the Greek beers are a lovely touch.
The cosy space is unpretentious with a few touristy Greek décor accents that add to the place’s charm and perpetual buzz.
Warm and hospitable, but lacks finesse and can be haphazard when the restaurant is busy.
Lunch with friends or family or a lively celebration with Greek dancing and plate breaking.

With great anticipation we visited Delphi, looking forward to a relaxed evening with great Greek food to celebrate Valentine's Day. Our celebration however was marred by home-economics style food, Oros at R14 a glass and the theme tune to Zorba the Greek on repeat for 30 minutes as background music. Service was friendly, although it took nearly an hour to get our starters. Unfortunately we couldn't stay for the after dinner raffle draw!
