More of a kafeneon than taverna, this new Bloomsbury deli is worth a visit just to peruse the many Greek food products and small-producer wines for sale. If you decide to linger, there are printed menus in the airy dining space – but it’s easier just to go to the counter, point and order, as you would in Greece.

There are more types of Greek filled pies than there are Greek islands; this version of spanakópitta has dense flaky pastry but a light spinach filling. A greek salad had all the right constituents in exactly the right amounts, and was only let down by some under-ripe, northern European tomatoes.

The koulouri bread (sesame covered ‘bagels’) is a savoury snack worth trying, chewy and pliable. The greek coffee can be ordered sweet, without sugar, or – if you’re not sure – ‘metrio’, which is medium.

The food quality is not great but OK. Lately it has deteriorated. Service is utterly unacceptable and if they want their business to be viable, or even successful in a city where service is usually top-notch and where it's as important as the food, they need to do something. Rude, not knowing the dishes printed on their catalogue. Will not go back.

Great food, horrible service. No attention to customer, rude, arrogant. Waiters are their weakest point

Some fantastic flavors but consistency in service not their forte. The not packed cheese has no clear prices and apparently is one of the most exciting things to purchase in there (for those who know about original Greek cheeses). I truly salute the variety of cheeses from all over Greece. I can see the intention as it seems that alot of good taste been put in there. I think when this buisness comes to London standards in terms of service .....this place will flourish.
