Summary

“The setting is impressive and dramatic… as are some of the prices” at Costas Spiladis’s glamourous West End yearling, where the centrepiece is “a terrific display and choice of Mediterranean fish flown in daily” (“you choose your fish and pay by weight”). All the many reports it inspires are of “masterfully prepared and sensational” dishes using “sublimely fresh” ingredients, and – leaving aside the “eyewatering expense” – the consensus is that it’s “worth a visit” and emerging as one of London’s top addresses for fish and seafood.

Summary

“Amazingly fresh fish” chosen from an icy display helps seduce devotees of this “lovely” looking new Greek fish specialist in the West End – a glamorous outpost of Costas Spiliadis’s luxurious international group. Even fans note that “you could pay a small king’s ransom here” however, and to cynics “it’s an attempt to out-Moscow Moscow”“stacks of dead fish on an iceberg is not decor and £15 for a teeny starter is not real life!”

The chef

Acclaimed chef and restaurateur Costas Spiliadis pioneered the Hellenic food scene by introducing high-end food from the islands of Greece. Estiatorio Milos, which opened in London in August 2015, has a long-standing reputation for serving the freshest, most pristine Mediterranean seafood.

Costas Spiliadis’ restaurants demonstrate a great commitment to the sourcing of quality ingredients. For almost forty years, he has cultivated relationships with fishermen in and around the Greek islands to source the highest quality catches.

Spiliadis first arrived in New York in 1969 from his native Patras, a port city near the ancient Greek village of Olympia. He acquired his passion for home cooking from his mother. In 1979, he opened his first Estiatorio Milos in Montreal, Canada. This new restaurant soon established itself as one of the city’s most influential dining destinations and paved the way to an international expansion to several key metropolitan cities. Spiliadis’ vision came full circle when in 2015, Estiatorio Milos opened in London to pursue his mission of elevating the status of Greek cuisine internationally.

Private dining

Milos London offers a selection of ambiances on the mezzanine floor to accommodate special occasions – be they for business or leisure.

Overlooking the ground floor dining room, the mezzanine is framed by our raw seafood bar, dessert and cheese counter – which showcases a large display of the best artisan cheese that Greece produces. Boasting a more intimate atmosphere, with a separate bar, the mezzanine is a flexible space which can be adapted according to the occasion and size of event.

"I have and continue to eat out at 5* restaurants often.. However, I will probably not be popular by saying this. Estiatorio Milo is one of those restaurants where I would say "It is all fur coat and no knickers"! Please excuse that not very nice saying, but it sums it up perfectly. It is in a great location, very big and very buzzy… Excellent service, but the food is average and is extortionate in price. We love good food and go to some very expensive establishments, but this restaurants food really does not warrant the price."
