A welcome addition to the scene in Layton, Go Greek café, bar, takeaway and deli opened on busy Westcliffe Drive. Run by Anglo-Greek couple Glenda and Spiros, Go Greek fills a gap in the market here offering fresh Greek and Mediterranean food to eat in and takeaway. The interior is warm, inviting and makes you feel you are abroad; you can experience authentic home-cooked Greek food here with lunch and evening menus including all the favourites like the very popular Souvlaki, hot and cold Meze, fresh fish dishes, tzatziki, humous, salads and more. Meaty mains like Stifado (beef stew with red wine) and Kleftiko (slow roasted shoulder of Lamb) are served with a choice of home roast potatoes or proper, real chips and they offer a great choice of vegetarian dishes, regular changing specialities and desserts. The highly recommended Dionysus Meze includes a large variety of dips, salads and mains and is ideal for larger parties. There is also a good selection of Greek wines and beers. There is some al fresco seating and plenty of free parking right outside the door. Go Greek gift vouchers are available and make ideal presents for birthdays and special occasions. Open for lunch Wednesday to Saturday and dinner Tuesday to Saturday and closed Sundays and Mondays. (Last food orders 1 hour before closing.) The new Atrium dining area is now open. Come along and enjoy this new part of the restaurant with its Greek courtyard style surroundings.

Call 01253 300088 Available on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday I had not been back to Go Greek for some time, and tried the new Olive Tree in Preston -BIG MISTAKE - so if you want an authentic Greek meal with atmosphere and good Greek cooking don't go elsewhere. I won't try anywhere else again. Mary Well, this is going to be easy. Everything was fantastic. The atmosphere, service, food, prices, absolutely everything. I've been meaning to visit this lovely little restaurant for a long time now. The menu is compact which is great as I can take for ever to choose, although as they have selected some of the best and most popular dishes it was still difficult. We had the Prawn Saganki and Loukaniko & Halloumi to start. Prawn Saganaki is one of those dishes that in theory shouldn't work. Feta cheese, prawns and spicy tomato sauce mixed together? Really? Yes folks, taste sensation let me tell you. Plenty of herbs, especially basil, and the combination works really well so make sure to order some pitta to adequately dispose of all the sauce. The other starter was equally tasty, but you can't really go wrong with good wine soaked village style pork sausages and tasty Cyprus sheep's milk cheese. One of the best taste combos out there. The sausage was cooked just right so all the subtle flavours came through and the cheese was prefect too, nice and soft. I particularly liked the presentation of the Loukaniko which made the pieces look like mini octopus. Onto the mains where we chose Kleftiko and the Fish Platter. Kleftiko was a lamb shank served with potatoes, carrots and shallot. The meat just fell off the bone but was full of flavour and the accompaniments were equally flavoursome with just the right softness without disintegrating. Fish Platter consisted of a lovely white filet which had been expertly cooked so that it flaked off the skin but was still moist and delicious, large mussels that had been topped with an incredibly thin crust which was delightful, a whole kalamari that had been cut into rings, floured and fried plus some king prawns. The whole lot was served with a small salad garnish, half a lemon and a side of divinely sweet oven potatoes. We also had the obligatory Horiatiki Salata (village salad) which comprised of a mix of very fresh and crisp lettuce, cucumber, tomato, red onion, green pepper, black olives and feta. It was very lightly dressed, but personally, that's better than being drowned in dressing to the point where it's all gone soggy before you've eaten half of it. All this was assisted on its way down with a delightful bottle of Retsina, which I think is still far too underrated a wine in this country. Go to the supermarket and buy a bottle. Try it with seafood, nibbles or just in a paper bag on a park bench. You won't be disappointed, unless it's raining when you're sat on that bench and your paper bag is getting soggy. Anyway, to round off an already pleasurable evening, we found a small space for dessert. The Baklava is made in-house and is to die for. Sorry mum, but it shouldn't be downed in syrup (luckily she doesn't go online). The crispy top complemented the chewy, soaked base and the crunchy nuts. Nothing bad to see here folks, keep moving along, all the way to Go Greek. Seriously, if you haven't been, GO, GO, GO!!! Trust me, I'm Greek ..... Costas My wife and I have been regular visitors to Go Greek for almost four years. We find it a very relaxing place to eat. The staff have that rare quality of making one seem more than just a paying customer. The chef obviously knows how to cook and present authentic Greek food. (We have eaten in Greece itself.). All the dishes are a pleasure to eat. The fish, especially the red snapper, is absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is bright and cheerful. The people of Layton are very lucky to have this restaurant in their neighbourhood. We have to travel three quarters of an hour to get there! Frank We really enjoyed our early bird meal so refreshing to find a place where the food and our satisfaction of it meant more than just taking our money. We are going to return with friends for more of the same and its a thumbs up to this restaurant both owners and staff thank you for a most enjoyable time. Valerie Dodd We intended to visit Go Greek when it first opened but didn't for various reasons - BIG MISTAKE. The food is fabulous, the owners and staff very friendly and helpful. Been many times now, the early bird menu is exceptional value. be back soon! lynnie
