Since we were a group of five, they recommended we order their “sharing menus”, which were the Peloponnese and Tonia’s Filoxenia (each set typically shared between two people).

From the Peloponnese menu, we had their Greek Flatbread, Tzatziki, Gigandes Plaki, Tiropitakia, Chicken Skewer, Falafel, Watermelon & Feta Salad and Chips.

Favorites were their flavorful gigandes plaki, juicy chicken skewers and minty watermelon salad. Falafels were a bit bland and tiropitakias were left unfinished. 

From the Tonia’s Filoxenia set we had their Crudités, Hummus, Revithia, Halloumi Skewer, Grilled Aubergine with Garlic Tomato Sauce, Chicken Wings, Lamb Meatballs and Saffron Rice.

Overall, highlights of this place include the various meze dishes you can order to share with friends and their causal, yet clean dining atmosphere. I would recommend their two people set menu deals because portions are definitely enough to satisfy and I would suggest booking a table ahead of time if you're planning on coming in a large group.
