Andreas Restaurant reviews



By Yian R.

I was introduced to this restaurant by a few friends who have been asking me to accompany them for a meal on several occasions. I finally accepted their offer to dicover one of, if not the nicest mediterranean restaurant. The waiters are always so polite and eager to make sure that they facilitate your needs and the food is always cooked to perfection. If you have not eaten here yet then this restaurant would be one to try, you will not be disappointed!

This place is absolutely amazing. I've visited Greece before and let me tell you, when it comes to authentic Greek food, this is the place to go. Very friendly staff and generous manager, price is very reasonable, by far my favourite Greek restaurant in London.

Being a Greek Cypriot myself I only settle for the best tasting food. I have been to many Greek restaurants and I can truthfully say this is the closest I have been to traditional homemade food. The food is delicious. The meat and fish are cooked perfectly and are very tender, tasty and mouth-watering. If you like both meat and fish then go for a Meze as you will not be disappointed. All the dips are homemade and if it is not up to Andreas’s Standards then he will not serve you the food. The staff is always smiling and happy and the best part Andreas (the owner) knows how to make everyone feel welcome and have a laugh. Everytime I go I laugh and laugh and laugh with Andreas. He always welcomes you with hands wide open and spends time talking to you. It’s been about 4 years now that I have been going to the restaurant and at least once a week. The portions are Greek portions (very big) but the price is spot on. Not expensive at all. I cannot recommend another Greek restaurant to you as Andreas Restaurant puts all the others to shame.

Had dinner this Friday at and was so impressed with the place I had to write a review! Friday was my first time I visited at Andreas and it will certainly not be my last. Food was delicious and very reasonable and the atmosphere was brilliant. On this occasion I didn’t book so had to wait ten minutes or so for a table, which I suppose was the only downside to this however we had a drink at the bar downstairs until our table was ready. The staffs at Andreas are very friendly and eager to help and the owner is a real character. I highly recommend the Kleftico with a nice bottle of Makedonikos red. The Tarama is also one of the tastiest I have tried over the year. Andreas Restaurant is a must if you haven’t been and I will definitely be going back but I will not be making the same mistake of not booking on my next visit.

Just had a lovely lunch @ Andreas. Salmon was soft and tender and the service was really quick. I would very much recommend going for lunch as it’s reasonable and you can be in and out in an hour. Perfect for business lunch and easy to get to.

Eat your food. Drink your drink. Dont complain unless you are not happy. Address complaints to the people you are not happy with. Do not take it out on someone else if your life is sad. Greek food makes people happy. Greek wine and beer makes them feel good. I can not believe that anyone would serve you this cold.

I visit London once every two months as i live in Liverpool with my wife, on my most recent visit we tried Andreas restaurant.

The food was absolutely marvellous and the best greek food that i have had in london or liverpool.

I tried two very traditional greek dishes taramosalata and kleftiko and both were exquisite, my wife had a dolmades and joked about coming to London every week for the food.

Will definitely return on my next visit to London.

Andreas has been a fixture in Charlotte Street since God was a lad, his helpful, easy charm winning over generations of diners who have come to expect great food and excellent service.

A few months back he relocated to new premises further north, near the junction with Goodge Street.

First the good news: The new premises are smart, entirely practical and now have the added bonus of a downstairs bar so a pre/post-prandial drink presents further options and when I was last in the restaurant it was proving highly popular, especially with the ladies.

So, what of the restaurant itself? Well, the building may have changed but the atmosphere has not, thanks to Andreas and his staff, some of whom are family and the rest long time employees.

Oh yes, the food; traditional Greek and all the better for that. Starters like Houmos and Halloumi are always fresh and appetising and the Kleftiko is never less than superb.

For hungry types, the Mixed grill represents a tasty challenge (too much for me) and the Stifado was excellent.

Greek wine does not float my boat but the smooth Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon bloody near sank it, three bottles, I think!

I dine here maybe 3/4 times a year (and use the bar more often) and have yet to be disappointed so I guess the relaxed atmosphere belies the hard work behind the scenes.

Whatever, it works.

The meal was not great and the service was even worse. I tried the lamb cooked in the oven which was cold.

I then complained to the waiter and it was changed and was edible. I will not be going htere again.


By Zeljko J.

We had Christmas party at Andreas, not sure what to say apart, absolutely brilliant. Everything was done with great detail.

Went there few more times after this, and that prompt me to leave the feedback. Food and service is PERFECT.

This was left from staff on behalf of UCL-Hampstead Campus

went to this restaurant Last night. Wonderful. I met the Chef and owners which was a pleasure. The chef Antonis used to be the executive chef of the president of Cyprus and the owner has bbeen in the industry for over 30 years and is a fantastic character. Go there and dont just try the food...talk to the staff!


By Katie Y.

The food was gorgeous real proper greek food that tastes delicious, will definately be going back!


By John Y.

Food is superb! Good atmosphere and staff. Would be 5 star but Im used to the Ritz, Signor sazzi and other exclusive restuarants.

The old Andreas restaurant at 22 Charlotte Street has ceased trading.The NEW Andreas Restaurant open in Nov 08 at 40 Charlotte Street with a modern fresh approach to Greek cuisine served in a bright new restaurant with an intimate bar and party room in the basement.I found the food and service truly excellent, the staff friendly and welcoming and wish them all success.


By John Y.

As far as Greek restaurants go this is the best for food I have been to outside of Greece. Waiters very freindly and very funny and are Greek too which is a nice touch.Restaurant looks good too.Definitly go!

A lovely, authentic Greek spot in the heart of Fitzrovia, Andreas is a little slice of Hellenic heaven on Charlotte Street. If you’re after Mediterranean cuisine for a decent price, look no further.

The Venue
Named after its owner, Andreas is perfectly located right in the middle of Charlotte Street; an area known for its array of tempting eateries. Andreas' outside space is great for those who find the bright green interior a little too harsh on the eye, and in the warmer weather it’s a real hit for fans of al fresco dining. Aside from the questionable walls, the rest of the interior is pleasant, with wooden flooring and a small bar. A flight of stars leads you down to the additional basement bar, which is perfect for private parties.

The Atmosphere
Family owned and run, it’s evident that both Andreas and his son are incredibly proud of the restaurant – and quite rightly so. The cosy family atmosphere certainly rubs off on the customers, and ensures that everyone feels warmly welcome.

The Food
All the Mediterranean classics you would expect sit at the top of the appetisers menu: houmous; tzatziki; taramosalata dips; stuffed vine leaves; feta; halloumi; pita bread - all of which are deliciously authentic. The lountza (smoked fillet of pork) is mouth-wateringly charred and salted, as is the halloumi, so be sure to have plenty of drink at the ready. With every appetiser coming in at under £6, the starters are seriously good value for money.

Mains are divided into a variety of traditional Mediterranean meat dishes, as well as fresh seafood and vegetarian options. The moussaka is a must-try, though it is very rich and generously portioned. The lamb dishes are the real specialities at Andreas; succulent, tender and cooked medium rare. The lamb chops with rice, baked slowly with tomatoes and roast potatoes impress, as do the meatballs stuffed into vine leaves with rice and mint. For those after fish dishes, the char-grilled salmon, the tuna steak or the grilled octopus served with a feta salad are all well worth sampling.

For dessert, the obvious choice is the baklava. Again, it's authentic so there's plenty of nuance to what can be just a sickly saccharine abomination of one of the world's best sweets.

The Drink
Andreas has a reasonable sized wine list with about a dozen whitesand a dozen reds, all of which are picked to complement the Mediterranean flavours (many come from Greece and Cyprus, too). The house white starts at just £4.25 a small glass (or £14.75 for a bottle) and is crisp, dry and drinkable. For those after a finer, floral wine, the Sancerre Pascal Joviet from France comes in at £29 and is worth doubling the budget for. A couple of champagnes and champagne cocktails are also available, as well as a small selection of spirits.

The Last Word
Andreas serves delicious homemade Greek cuisine at reasonable prices – just make sure you order lots of water to counterbalance the liberal seasoning. With a strong focus on quality and a passionate owner who takes pride in his business, this restaurant is the real Mediterranean deal.
