Owned by a Greek family, now based in Chesterfield, the restaurant hopes to fill a gap in the market.

Konstantinos Diamantidis, a representative from the restaurant, said: “Our intention is to make you feel that you are somehow back in Greece, or if you have never been, maybe to give you a taste of your next holiday.

“My Grandmother (Yiayia) used to say that there is nothing better than homemade food and taught us to eat and cook only the best. Now years later, we as a family will try to give you a taste of what Greek families believe good quality Greek food tastes like.”
