Greek flavours are prepared with passion and gusto here. Enjoy fresh fish accompanied by Boutaris Santorini wine or ouzo and your tastebuds will be transported straight to the sun-drenched Med. Holiday favourites such as moussaka and chargrilled stuffed calamari can be found amongst barbecue dishes like grilled pork chops marinated in lemon juice, and grilled Greek village-style sausages wrapped in pita.
It's always a good idea to check the daily specials board here too' just for something a little different. Dishes are dependent on chef's inspiration and, of course, whatever ingredients are freshly available in the market. The catch-of-the-day allows for fresh fish cooked to your liking, but on the day we visited, it was kleftiko - lamb, marinated in garlic and lemon juice then slowly baked on the bone - that took our fancy. The pride Steki's take in using the freshest top-quality seafood, meat and vegetables is evident from the offset, with as much as possible locally and ethically sourced. The atmosphere is cheerful, bustling and friendly, the service personal and relaxed. Our waitress was on hand to advise us on our culinary choices, even attempting to teach us the basics of the Greek language; 'kalinichta' means good evening - it certainly was. She also told us of the many birthday parties, weddings and other functions hosted here and, I have to say, I can quite see why so many people rave about this place. A trip to Steki's was just what we needed on a rainy winter's evening and if I had to sum it up I'd say: fine wine, excellent food and great value for money served in a relaxed and informal setting.
