I had heard about the opening of this a good few months prior to officially opening, and it sounded like it would be a good one to try so I added it to my list to visit.

After many weeks I finally took a visit….

Last week (At time of typing this) I had heard from someone that they visited, and liked it but found it MEGA costly but I always listen but wait till I visit and make my own mind up.

Mezzidakia is the sister restaurant to Chakoo Bombay Cafe and Topolabamba, both I like so I couldn’t wait to try the food here.

On entering the inside has a very funky design, visually it is closer to Chakoo than Topolabamba.

 

The Food…

Its tapas style so you have to order a few dishes….well you don’t have to but that’s recommended.

I didn’t really know what to order, so I asked the waitress tonight to recommend some of the more popular dishes so I decided to try them.

Dishes

Feta Saganaki (V) £5.95
Greek feta in filo pastry, chilli honey and sesame seeds

This was a really nice dish, one that I can’t fault in any way as it was full of flavour and really nice.

The pasty was just crisp enough, and then you had the feta taste and was just perfect.

This was one that the waitress recommended tonight, so a big thanks to her for this as I would have this again.

Portion Size: 5

Value for Money: 4

Biftekia Gemista £5.50
Greek herbed burgers with warm feta filling, tzatziki

Again another really nice tasty dish, but they were very small in size (yup I know tapas small dishes but maybe a little bigger would have been better….for me anyway).

The burgers worked well with the sauce and own their own, really nice flavours.

Greek Skinny Fries £1.95

Really good chips!!! just the way I like then skinny and a nice flavour!!!!

These were gone very fast!!

Overall

This is a hard one, to sum up, the service was very good! the staff very friendly!

The food was very very tasty!!, but the cost of the dishes…….for me maybe just a little too costly for the size of portions. My girlfriend got the Moussaka and it was very small, but again mega tasty!

I know of another two restaurants that are similar style of food, and the portion sizes are bigger and about the same cost. If here did an order 3 dishes for £13 that would be perfect, but for me anyway the cost of some dishes are maybe £1 or £2 too much.

As I said the food here is very very nice, so please do pop in and try here.

I have been to Mezze before see HERE and HERE for my previous reviews.

I have enjoyed the past few visits here, so I was looking forward to going back.

For me this is a very nice restaurant, that has a very relaxing feel to it plus if you get to sit near the window it add that little extra to your visit.

The Food :

Tonights visit I used a recent purchase from Itison, it was 4 tapas and a glass of wine for two and it was only £19 which is really good.

To start with we ordered some Rose wine, which was very nice and very moreish.

Turkish Style Kofta Kebab £n/a

IMG_0578.jpg

I have recently stared liking kebabs more, so when I saw this dish I thought lets try it as I’ve never tried it here yet.

Presentation wise this looked very nice, and the smell from it wow!

This was very nice, I really liked all the flavours and it didn’t get boring with every mouthful.

Seafood Saganaki £N/A (but this was with a little extra charge as wasn’t in the deal options)

IMG_0583 

This dish sounded amazing so I didn’t mind paying a little extra for it, since it wasn’t part of the deal.

WOW WOW WOW amazing!!

The fish taste was there, but not in a strong way and the sauce was really good. Normally with dishes like this the sauce smell and taste, overpowers the fish taste but this was perfect.

If I wasn’t getting full, I would have had another one.

In one word “amazing”

Mythos (Craiova, Romania) : Review

Craiova, Dolj

Since this  was my first time in Craiova, I wanted to try and visit a few restaurants, cafes etc.. unfortunately I didnt manage this time but I will again soon on my next visit.

One of the places I heard was good was Mythos, and today I visited to see what it was like.

Today was a very nice sunny day, so we sat outside to enjoy the weather.

Both outside and inside of the restaurant looked very nice, and spotlessly clean. The staff were all very pleasant, and very helpful and spoke English which helped me….but I did order a beer in Romanian so I did well today 🙂

The Food…

Pizza Carbonarra 22 LEI

img_2072

So this sounded an interesting option, I like the pasta Carbonarra so I thought lets see what the pizza is like.

On arrival it looked OK, and smelled nice.

This was a big disappointment, there wasn’t much flavour from this. It was cooked fine, but it was lacking in flavour which made it very boring to eat.

Would I order this again? no..

I did try some of my girlfriends pizza, and this did have flavour again but not as much as I would have liked so I am glad I didn’t order that one.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 2.5
Presentation : 3

Overall

I was very disappointed with my pizza, so much so I don’t think I visit here again as it was just lacking in flavour.
