Very pleasant surroundings and good Greek food. Always generous with their portion size so no chance of going home hungry, It could be improved by adding some dishes like moussaka or stuffed cabbage rolls and some other dishes for vegetarians, otherwise very enjoyable,
Great food good service Very busy the platters and quantities of food were extremely generous. I have been there several times and it has been consistently good
Excellent food and service with a lovely ambiance. We received an entree on the house which was well received. Flounder was delicious. Reasonably priced. Highly recommend for your next meal.
the food was awesome as usual and the service was great. The food was very tasty and they should be commended for the consistent high level they deliver.
My wife and I received a gift voucher which entitled us to an entrée of mixed dips, white bait, breads and salads. Mains included a shared plate selection of chicken, lamb and calamari. Despite being full at this point we then had a beautiful selection of small deserts followed by traditional Greek coffee. The calamari was the best I have ever eaten, and as a favourite dish I have tasted this across Europe, America, Asia and Australia. It simply was perfect. The same can be said about their coffee, it was better than some coffees I've had in Greece! Overall, a great location, friendly staff, beautiful food and lots of it! We would highly recommend this restaurant to others and will be dining here again in the future.
Meals are in very generous portion for the price. They were very busy the night we went but they managed their timing amazingly well. It is obvious this is a family business. The mom and son worked the floor and and the father cooked. I was surprised to learn they had only 3 people work that night. You can't miss the Greek pastry dessert, the one with a really long name on the menu with custard, to end your dinner on a high note. A very positive dining out experience and I'm sure I'll go back
Me and my husband visited Florina this week. The food was very flavoursome and authentic. I thought that service was great and food was coming out at perfect intervals. Not only you can BYO bottle of favourite wine, but the food is reasonably priced too. It's a win for me.
The entree and main were fresh, tasted great and were traditionally presented however the extras for the bread I think should be part of the v meal. Also the desert was not fresh and overall even though the servers were very nice and welcoming the service was slow and meals came out at different times for the one table.
The white bait was over-fried and the taste was bitter. I think they are using old oil. ;( I ordered the 'grilled' blue grenadier but it was coated in a floury and oil-saturated crust. Not sure that it was fresh fish either. Greek salad was light on all ingredients except iceberg. My selection was disappointing for me. Quite a noisy room and tables too small for the many plates you're encouraged to order.
We had the Banquet for 4, Service was very good but food was disappointing. White bait dry, potatoes drowning in a strange oily sauce and very tied. Fish platter overcooked and battered calamari was soggy, Desserts were excellent and there was plenty of food but we wont be returning as there is far better Greek to be had in the area.
