Nostimo Restaurant – Greek Club
Walking into Nostimo for a Sunday lunch with Greek music band playing was the perfect start.
The atmosphere was very welcoming with a warm greeting from a staff member. We had heard a lot of mixed reviews ourselves on this restaurant, not very good ones either. Most of the comments have been the service was slow and the food not so good. So we thought we would try it out for ourselves. As mentioned it was a great first impression. The décor is simple, maybe would have loved to have more paintings or pictures of Greece to really feel like we were in a Greek restaurant but that’s just a personal opinion.
We were greeted well and asked for drinks straight away. The menu has a great selection of shared food and main meals. Really disappointed not to see grilled haloumi on the menu!!!! We decided to order a few dishes to share. All the dishes that came out were extremely well presented and looked and smelled amazing. We were both impressed with what we ordered and would be happy to go back to try other food on the menu.
The service however is not fantastic, but it did not ruin our dining experience at all so it was not as bad as what we had heard. The dessert menu did not have a huge choice and what I ordered which was berry compote and ouzo granita did not present at all what I thought. It came out as whole pieces of cooked fruit and about 4 pieces of what looked like white ice and was really hard to eat (this was the ouzo granita) and it was all floating in a syrup. It all did taste very nice, but not easy to eat and not what I had expected. As we were having our desserts people were getting up and doing traditional Greek dancing. This was lovely to watch and was highly entertaining our 2 year old.
Overall, we are looking forward to going back to Nostimo and tasting more food…maybe for dinner this time!!!
