This cheerfully cosmopolitan little restaurant is run by a multinational team of personalities who are well known on the local dining scene. Although quite small, the décor in has a pleasantly contemporary airy feel, and a very large window looks out towards Cole's Monument with lots of mature trees.
Tightly packed tables are laid bistro style and the music (think Zorba the Greek) creates a holiday ambience, putting customers in a light mood. Menus, simply worded in the continental style, reflect the various national identities involved on the team and offer something different from other restaurants in Enniskillen.
As well as an obvious Greek influence in dishes like spanakopita, tzatziki, Greek pitta burger, Greek salad and Dollakis pikilia platter, there are also northern European dishes like gravadlaks and wiener schnitzel (and speciality beers, too from Spain, Madeira and Germany, in addition to the wine list).
But these people know their market and you’ll find plenty of standard offerings too, especially on the evening menu and for Sunday lunch; things such as pan fried black sole, mixed grill of the day, (though this has a twist, with the meats served on a skewer), traditional aged sirloin steak (or as a roast on Sunday), and soup served with welsh rarebit.
Vegetarian tastes are also well catered for with salads, and mains such as filled courgette, stuffed with rice and Mediterranean vegetables.
Skilful service is a special feature (eg filleting whole fish on hot plates in the restaurant, adding a bit of theatre too) and, outside of the main lunch and dinner times, they cater for early callers with freshly squeezed orange juice (proper continental press) and coffees and teas with freshly baked croissants.
A blackboard outside also advertises tapas in the afternoon. With tasty cooking, great service and very good value too, the popularity of this little place is well deserved.
