SquareMeal Review of Aphrodite Taverna

Run by a Cypriot chef & his Brazilian wife since 1994, this charming little taverna gives west Londoners a feel-good taste of the Greek islands with its happy-go-lucky atmosphere & nostalgic holiday food. The menu is a greatest hits album devoted to the singalong Hellenic back catalogue, so feast on generous helpings of taramasalata, haloumi & dolmades before devouring succulent meat & fish dishes from the grill. Other popular choices might include souvla (spit-roasted lamb or chicken) & that juicy classic, kleftiko – wonderfully tender slow-cooked shoulder of lamb. Colourful, hand-woven tablecloths, Greek bric-a-brac & bouzouki music all contribute to the feeling that you’re far from Notting Hill. On warm evenings, sit outside on the pavement terrace, glass of retsina in hand, & enjoy the best of Greek-Cypriot hospitality.
