“This charming family run Greek tavern hidden in Bayswater is a jewel in the rough. The seafood is fresh and sourced directly from fisherman across the UK: lobster from Scotland, John Dory, Sea bass… whatever is the freshest. The food is rustic in its preparation, and the ingredients do a lot of the work. When you are looking for a non-pretentious restaurant dishing up authentic flavours from Greece with genuine, friendly service, then this one needs to be remembered. Somehow there are many Greeks restaurants in the vicinity, but they are generally all empty… but at Halepi, not only are you lucky to get a table, they really squeeze you in… to the point that if your dining company is dull, you could simply eavesdrop to your left and right as the tables often have no space between them.
Private conversation would be fruitless.” – Bobby Chinn
