Book in advance. Our closest favourite restaurant. Don't come for the decor - come for the food. It is a very simple taverna style. Run by a greek family - they are all super friendly. Food is super fresh, tasty and comes out as it is ready not course by course. Order some meze dishes to start then follow with the lamb or chicken. Don't miss the patatas with oregano. It just won an award for 'Hidden Gem' in Edinburgh so you need to book to be sure to get a table especially during August or at the weekend. The greek beer or the house wine in steel carafes are great. Other drinks available too. Please note: Not always open for lunch but always for dinner. So check first.
