Square Meal Review of Retsina ?

The traditional whitewashed taverna gets an upmarket twist at Retsina, a polished Greek restaurant that suits Belsize Park like a cashmere-lined leather glove. The smartly attired regulars have learned to trust the place: the exuberant waiters are charming & the kitchen always delivers. Loukanika (spicy sausages), grilled sardines & king prawns in garlic sauce bolster the usual salads, dips & flatbread to start. Chips accompany charcoal-grilled meats & souvla (skewers); grilled fish comes with vegetables; & rice is on hand to mop up the juices from traditional dishes of meatballs in tomato & oregano sauce, or stewed lamb knuckle. You must give 24 hours’ notice to order the hare stifado or milk-fed lamb, but it’s worth the early planning. Retsina’s £18.50 mixed mezze is a low-cost way to navigate the menu.
