Greek mezze meets Spanish tapas in a friendly and informal city-centre setting.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The dark-wood interior of this unassuming little tapas/mezze bar is a far cry from its former incarnation as the diner-esque, Favorit. The pick-n-mix selection of Spanish and Greek dishes covers the full spectrum of vegetable, seafood and meat bases. A bowl of fat, salty olives and toasted bread topped with tomato is a good place to start. Fans of the potato are in luck, with classic patatas bravas on offer or tatties done Greek-style with oregano and grated kefalotyri cheese. The house salad is a fresh fusion of serrano ham, almonds, oranges and peppers while bakaliaros (battered salt cod) has a nice crisp exterior, the fish falling apart as you bite into it, with a beautifully garlicky sauce on the side. A stack of spanakopita, meanwhile, has a deliciously delicate minty flavour. For tapas, these are generous portions and, though there’s not a huge choice, the options are tasty and well executed. There’s a value for money lunch deal too, perfect for time-poor hungry shoppers, office workers or tourists.
