"GOOD"

The traditional whitewashed taverna gets an upmarket twist at Retsina, a polished Greek restaurant that’s “a cut above the rest”, according to one fan. “Friendly and warm service” is a trump card much appreciated by its smartly attired regulars, but the menu is also “brilliant value” and the kitchen always delivers. Among the “reliably excellent” starters, you might find grilled aubergine salad, lounza (smoked pork fillet), dolmades and baby squid as well as the usual dips and flatbreads, while mains range from char-grilled meat and fish in various forms to slow-cooked stews and peasant dishes such as lamb knuckle or beef stifado with rice to soak up the juices. It’s also worth giving 24-hours’ notice for the leg of milk-fed lamb, suckling pig or casseroled game. Retsina’s £19.50 mixed mezze (for two) is a low-cost way to navigate the menu.

A nice local restaurant serving good quality Greek food. The owners are always friendly and they always try to accommodate people even when they are busy. I tend to order lamb souvla which is always tender and tasty. Although they have certainly gotten busier following their Channel 4 adventure, they still have not forgotten the basics.

Hi We went for a birthday celebration at the weekend. It was amazing. The service was superb, but the food, WOW. It is without doubt the best Greek food I have ever eaten. all the starter (and they never seem to stop coming we simply made, but full of flavour. The calamari was the freshest, and best I have ever tasted, anywhere in the World. The mains were massive, and again so tasty. The staff were great, very helpful and attentive. It was a real delight. I will be back for sure, and cant wait to take some Greek friends and show off about the place. Well done. Brilliant Franksy
