We visited the hideaway today after reading some good reviews, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. I had the signature pork gyros and my partner had a gluten free sausage sandwich with chips, and then a vegan semi-fredo for desert. All the food was lovely. The service was done with a smile, and even included tips on the best place to visit on our holiday.

I would definitely recommend it, especially for someone with gluten and/or dairy intolerance!

Some of our party had the halloumi and some the chicken, we all thoroughly enjoyed the gyros. The food is all home cooked, the restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the staff are lovely.
The Greek chips with crumbled feta and finely chopped tomato and onion were something new and also very good.

Really enjoyed breakfast until somebody walked in without a mask . I have every sympathy with establishments having to police the reckless and stupid , but as long as they serve people who do not comply they will keep returning.

Firstly, we're glad you enjoyed your breakfast . That is of course, our main aim.
If though, you truly do have sympathy with business for not only coming through the long pandemic but also, having to do their best to comply with and enforce safety, sanitary and social distancing procedures, whilst still providing the service and standards that they're known for, I'd suggest that you refrain from leaving reviews that are potentially damaging to them.

If you're referring to the elderly lady, then she is a loyal customer and happens to be exempt from wearing a mask.
If anyone else slipped by, then I apologise but we do try our best. You'll no doubt have registered our large sign upon entry stating that masks are required. People do still forget unfortunately and when reminded, their reaction is generally to immediately take a seat, which of course is permitted.
For a small business, any customer must 'keep returning' as you say, so hopefully with a friendly education, when they do, they will be masked .

Thanks for your custom, we appreciate it.
