Harden's survey result
This “wonderful, buzzy” Greek in Hillgate Village, near Notting Hill Gate, “goes from strength to strength” in its reinterpretation of the traditional taverna as a “modern neighbourhood restaurant”. The “fresh, delicious menu is perfect for sharing”, but “you need to pick wisely otherwise it’s expensive”.
“Imaginative deconstructed modern Greek cooking” brings locals back to this “cramped and always crowded” taverna in the backstreets of Hillgate Village, near Notting Hill Gate tube (whose small garden is open in summer). “Once you know your way around the menu the food is excellent and at a reasonable price – the uninitiated will find it expensive.” Top Tip: “fried feta and caper meringue should be a classic”.
“Exciting” dishes still win fans for this “classy” and “highly creative modern Greek”, on the site of successive Notting Hill tavernas for almost 70 years. Scores dropped across the board this year though – it’s becoming “very expensive” and some diners felt ‘processed’ (“we were served so fast we were finished in 45 minutes”).
“Wonderful and interesting” versions of Greek classic dishes inspire fans of this contemporary taverna, off Notting Hill Gate (which – formerly Costas, long RIP – has been the site of tavernas since the war). “Delightful garden for summer evenings”.
