Greek, Spanish and Portuguese Cuisine

A variety of pleasing starters are on offer such as the meze platter which includes dolmades, keftedes, croquettes, spanakopitas, fried brinjals, skordalia, tzatziki and herbed pita bread.
For mains, be sure to sample the 4 Lamb Chops made with lemon, extra virgin olive oil, oreganum and served with spiced lentils, tahini yoghurt and Greek lemon potatoes. Another favourite is the restaurant’s signature dish of lamb kleftiko with vine leaves, feta, rosemary mushrooms, butternut purée, creamed spinach and Greek lemon potatoes.

You may also want to indulge in the baklava with roasted nuts, phyllo pastry, honey syrup and lemon ice cream.
