The only Greek food I have probably ever eaten are fast foods, or foods that are advertised as Greek that have a cooking time of approximately two minutes in the microwave.

That being said, my first proper Greek food experience was fantastic, and an experience it was.

The venue was nice, without being too over or understated. It was good for our family birthday celebration, and as there were two other families eating there, both with small children, I dare say it works for families of all ages and sizes.

Not only is it fitting for families, but I think it would be nice for a more intimate setting, too.

The service was wonderful. We had a couple of different waiters, and all of them were lovely. They were nice, informative and they loved having a bit of a laugh with us.

Now, for the food.

Two of the five people eating with us were vegetarian, and they were not disappointed with their food or their options.

However, for my starter I had chicken wings, and for my main I had the lamb gyros.

For a starter meal, the wings were massive. There were approximately six to eight wings on the plate, which is more than enough for a starter, and each one was a delicious, perfectly cooked piece of poultry.

The main course was, for lack of a better word, amazing. The gyros was complete with salad, pita bread, tzatziki and roast potatoes, all on a humongous plate, and all ridiculously tasty.
And, because they serve such large portions, you get to take what you don't eat home in a doggy back if that term is still accepted, that is.

Meltemi don't even have to heat the plate to make their food the perfect temperature. They are just that good.

Considering the portion size, the quality of the food and the service, we paid a very reasonable price for a very satisfying experience.

Overall, I had a fantastic time, and I plan on going back very, very soon.
