Every bustling city should have an excellent Greek restaurant, and Entelia on Whiteladies Road ticks all the boxes. It is smart, sophisticated and above all has a menu to rival any eatery in the Aegean. The decor is crisp and modern, complemented by staff whose upbeat attitude makes the atmosphere feel relaxed and inviting. The menu features traditional Greek favourites such as famous moussaka (£11.50) and lamb souvlaki (£12.50), and the drinks list offers a good range of wines plus traditional options including Mythos beer. Owner Mike Gregory strives to use the finest fresh ingredients and locally sourced meats to create his dishes, and the specials board offers fish and meat options that change frequently. The knowledgeable Nikos directed my partner and I to the mixed meze, which is ideal for those of us who can never quite decide what to order. It offers a taste of everything from homemade dips to tender lountza - smoked ham thinly sliced and chargrilled - and excellent calamari. At £17.95 per person the meze is fantastic value for money, as all of the dishes are substantial, incredibly well presented and, most importantly, delicious. First to arrive was a selection of homemade dips accompanied by olives and pita breads. The hummus, tzatziki and taramosalata, all fresh and incredibly tasty, pre-empted loukanika sausages - traditional wine sausages - halloumi cheese and the lountza ham, which had us fighting for more than our share. The whitebait and calamari, served with a feta salad, were refreshing and covered with a traditional dressing, whilst the mixed kebab and meatballs that followed were tender and expertly spiced. I think many of us underestimate the fine quality, good value and variety of food offered by traditional Greek restaurants, but would urge everyone to try Entelia, a restaurant I will certainly be revisiting
