We came to Swindon to spend the day out. We found a carpark near Swindon town centre. After a little walk we didn’t find any restaurants around, then we see this restaurant and we decide to by walk. When we arrive someone step up and...asked if we have a booking but we said “no, we haven’t” then he said “It’s no problem”. After he check the diary, he point our table and showed the way and set up quickly for us. One we have a deep look, we ordered and the food came so quickly, showing a great dishes. Was the first time we came to a Greek restaurant and I think we will be back again.More

Excellent service and food. Family business that welcomes and cannot do enough for you. Food is fresh and plentiful. You'll never leave hungry. Recommend the souvlaki and baklava. Always busy.

Finally got to eat here after saying we would for what seems like ages. Warm greeting, attentive friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. Food was to a great standard with more than enough of everything! Well presented hearty platefuls of yumminess! Please be careful if...ordering the mixed grill as it looks like one of those eating challenge you see on TV and you’ll need to wear your elasticated pants! Fantastic all round and can’t recommend highly enough.More

Excellent service and amazing food....what more could you ask for? This intimate space is a little Greek taverna away from Greece! We started with Tzatziki, spicy prawns and gigantes with fluffy warm pita breads. Then came sea bass and beef stamnas accompanied by roasted potatoes...and refreshing salad. The Mythos was cold and the greek music softly playing in the background could have whisked me back to any of the many islands I have visited. Ευχαριστο πολυ θα σας ξαναδούμε.More

Superb as always, great service from the team tonight, no slip in food quality after lockdown. Great to see everyone again, even better to see them full and busy. Ashill a very well run, family friendly restaurant.

After hearing really good things about the meal, we were very looking forward too coming here in hope that it would live up to expectations. However…I’m amazed to see how well it beat them, the customer service was amazing, nothing was to small or big...for the staff, I made a slight comment about it being very warm and within minutes they offered us the chance to move to a better table, and they didn’t rush us to do so, they were so accommodating, and welcoming, the food was amazing, restaurant was abuzz, I honestly couldn’t recommend this place highly enough!More

Have occasionally visited before and had a good time but as we have not been out much of late (Thanks Covid!) not been anywhere nice for a long time. Booked this for my son's 21st and the restaurant could not have been more accommodating. We...were late because out taxis did not turn up but they did not worry. We had a warm welcome and they had even put up banners and decorated the table, we had a 21st Balloon! We love family atmosphere restaurants and this had that in spades. The service was fantastic. The food choice was really good and the portions very big, we should go more often as there was plenty to choose from and we were just too full to even get to desserts!!!! 2 of our party are vegetarian and there was plenty of options for them too. Id not been able to get a candle for the birthday cake we took, they lit it up for us and to top it all we had a round of complimentary shots as we paid. It was like being on holiday! Great night, lovey venue, lovely staff, great food and the wine prices were reasonable too. Not only was it great, it was excellent value. Can't wait to go again. Made my son's 21st birthday and I really appreciate it.More
