About the employer 



It all begun one summer in Greece... Vicky was working as a Hotel Manager in a Greek resort and Vasilis was the Head Chef there. We kept getting compliments for our wonderful Greek cuisine and our hospitality, but we also heard a lot of complaints that Greek food never tastes the same in the UK and Greek products sold in supermarkets lacked authenticity.

Greek cuisine is our passion so when the opportunity to move here to sunny Eastbourne presented itself we jumped at the chance and we decided to set things straight with our new business venture offering original Greek recipes and hospitality in a relaxed and fun environment.
