Can’t find any faults in our first visit to The Greek Place. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was fantastic and the portions were generous. Will definitely become a regular to this great restaurant.
My moussaka was the best I've ever had. The dips were plentiful and very fresh as was the bread. My other guests loved the zucchini fritters.
Amazing food & great service - Gary looked after us for the night & he was fantastic. We will definitely be returning & recommending to family & friends.
