Greek food with an impeccable pedigree – all the classics cooked to family recipes in a smart, modern restaurant, with excellent service.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
It’s all about family at Frosoulla's. From the waitress who greets you like a long-lost relative to the Mediterranean indulgence towards children, Frosoulla's feels like the Greek family you never had. Add to that the traditional hand-me-down recipes that imbue the cuisine with an earthy authenticity. Saganaki is a harmonious marriage of seafood and feta in a light tomato and ouzo bisque. Kleftiko, fall-apart slow-roast lamb on the bone, has been prepared to the same family recipe for almost half a century and is the house speciality. The best-value option is the four-course mezedes menu which reads like a roll-call of Greek classics including keftedes, dolmades, kofte, moussaka and a wonderful homemade taramasalata. Portions are generous so, despite the good-quality cooking, many diners end up taking boxes of left-overs home. But it’s not all old-school. Keen to meet modern diners’ needs, Frosoulla has introduced a comprehensive vegan and vegetarian section, with animal-free versions of classic dishes, such as layered aubergine and potatoes in a silky red wine and tomato sauce, and a cassoulet of chickpeas and cannellini beans.
