There are quite a few foodie places in Belsize Terrace and we decided Greek food was the meal to try this time round. The place was half empty though it was still early evening so i wondered whether id made a mistake. I then spotted what looked like an F word trophy next to the till – so my anticipation grew! I later found that this place was in the semi final of the show but didnt get put through due to lacklustre service…
Anyway – we had two starters – spanagopita (feta cheese and spinach parcels) – simply delicious and filling. The other starter was plain humous – nothing impressive in the least, actually having a weird aftertaste, like the olive oil was off or something. Not worth having at all.
The mains then arrived – absolutely massive. I had the lamb souvla – diced lamb, with tzatsiki – this was almost £14, plus you had to order sides. My friend had the kleftiko – similar price but came with sides. When they arrived – id never seen anything like this – huge and delicious. I was stuffed after just a small amount and took the remainder home. I think this will serve me for lunch for the next two days – plus it was delicious. My friend's kleftiko was similarly lovely – melt in the mouth tenderness – i half wished id had that though again, huge. These were meals to share, not for just one normal person (and i love my food!)
We passed on puddings – looked quite tacky a la the ones you seem to see in cheaper chinese restaurants on laminated menus! Overal the bill for two huge mains, two starters, a side and a glass of wine came to £45. I agree the service was lacklustre and the place was half empty when i left – but gave the overall rating because of the mains alone.
