I had a mixed experience at this restaurant.
The first time, we went there for lunch on a quiet day. We got adequate service, and I can't dispute the fact that they served good food at a good value for money. So later I took my best friend there for dinner.
We arrived there just before 6 pm. On the ground floor there were 3 free tables, but the waiters deny giving us any table because, he said, thoes tables were for 3-4 people only. We were told to go upstairs.
When we went upstairs, we got the same response. There were 3 free tables but we couldn't sit at any table because there were only two of us. They just kept us standing there, bewildered and slightly agitated. Eventually, a waiter told us that we had to wait for about 20 minutes, or until a two-person table is free. Then no one gave us any more attention.
We were annoyed and decided to leave. We went to a nearby Korean restaurant called Assa, which served nice food and was not too uptight to serve us!

My boyfriend and I were looking for a nice meal out on Sunday evening in order to reward ourselves for a long, hardworking week.
I'm telling you, we made such a mistake going to Andy's Taverna.
The problems started from a slow, inattentive service. We were placed at dirty table. The waiter duely took the table cloth away, but we did not get a new clean one until about 10 minutes later, when another waiter came to get an order and discovered that we didn't have any menu or clean cloth.
We order the set dip starter for two, at the price of £6.50. What we got was a basket of warm bread, which was quite nice, and 3 plates of dips; yogurt, hummous and tiramasalata. The mouse smelt so fishy we could not eat it. Our hope lied in our main courses.
I ordered special kebab at £10.25 and my boyfriend ordered mixed grill at £9.95. Somehow my dish was significantly smaller than his. It was also very disappointing. For a tenner, I got 2 skewers of kebab, one pork one lamb. Both of them very under seasoned, too chewy due to a significant amount of tendon left in the meat, and bad value for money. My boyfriend got more meat on his plate, but again it didn't taste of much. Basically just grilled pieces of boring meat.
The main dishes came with greek salad, which was not that impressive either. If you want rice or chips, you have to order them separately. More money flies from your pocket!
I'd better have kebab from a shop near my place next time.
