  • 5 star ratingWhat more can you say,a group of us “descended” on the bar after a golf competition,warmly greeted and served with great choice of beers and very reasonable prices.
    Service even though place was busy was always swift courteous and helpful.
    We decided grub needed so after quick whip round £10 each delivered £120 to the bar with the request that they choose food for us... what came was substantial and absolutely delicious.
    Previous events had ended up with a curry well that’s not happening again ,we’ll be back next year.
    Thanks

  • Amazing spot for absolutely class food. The selection of dishes is just enough from both Greek and Spanish origin. The (imported) cheese board is great for £8.99 and the meat dishes you can get are very well prepared, seasoned and presented. Stifado is one of my favourites along with Pollo y Chorizo a la Espanola with a nice creamy sauce (both around £5). The atmosphere is great, even on busy nights the vibe inside the joint is cool. A mix of locals, regulars and people from further afield complete the mix for a very inviting time. The staff are on point, they keep you looked after and are super-nice. The beer and wine selection on offer is also good. I've been here quite a few times over a thirteen year period and it still exudes the charm that I initially experienced first off. Can't wait to visit again. Next time I'll get some nice photos too.

  • This was a Google find after spending time in the north east. Highly recommended. Great service and great food ! If your ever near Darlington city centre and fancy something fresh and authentic give this place a visit. Has a split menu, half tapas style dishes and half meze style. Luckily on my visit they had a special offer of 3 dishes for £10 off a slightly smaller version of the main a la carte. Again highly recommend this place. I will be visiting again very soon

  • Friendly service, great food (pleasantly surprised by the eggy bread!). Mixture of Spanish and Greek tapas. Great selection of gins and rums too. Has a laid-back pub atmosphere and also shows sport.

  • My partner and I were passing through Darlington last night on our way home to Scotland and decided to stop here for a meal. We arrived wearing tracksuit bottoms etc and were told on arrival that there was a dress code which meant no tracksuits allowed. We were given a table, however.

    We ordered our food and didn't have to wait too long for it to arrive. Everything was lovely until I found a long hair in my Tzatziki. I pushed it aside and continued with everything else. At the end of the meal I pointed out the hair and was relieved to have the item removed from the bill and a very embarrassed waitress couldn't apologise enough.

    I would definitely come here again if I'm passing through Darlington in the future as it was genuinely a nice place to eat.
