It’s changed and gone bad! This was one of my favourites for takeaway, the wraps were a great deal. They’ve recently removed the sauce (garlic) and now charge you extra for it, they’ve also changed the jackfruit recipe and it’s awful. It was very tasty...before, but this time I couldn’t even eat it. We left 2.5/3 wraps to waste. It was a waste of money and could only eat the chips.More

I went with my wife and kids for lunch,but little did I know that the guy in front of the house made his own COVID Rules. He refused us table because in the restaurant there was someone already seating who we know. But we didn’t...come with them and wanted our own table. Clearly this guy was just lazy and didn’t want to have more busy place and work harder. I will never go there again. And it is not kids friendly or even adult friendly place. I am surprised that they were seating and eating and we were not allowed in. Unfair treatment and very disappointing.More

On arrival I was not given the opportunity to use the QR for NHS track and trace. We were ushered to a table that was not a great distance from tables around us. The family next to us wandered around without masks talking to other...tables and then a large table of girls was placed on the table next to us ! Very obviously not one household! The whole experience was slightly stressful with the exit being taken up with folk waiting for take away options! The food was average although our waitress was lovely. We were not asked to sanitise at any point. Really unimpressed with lack of Covid standards!More

Went just before second lockdown, staff were nice but found the portions to small and very expensive for what you get, wraps with fries outside at £6 are the only value option, £7 for one chicken kebab skewer? No thanks

Came here with some friends last weekend and had a really enthusiastic server named Sylvester who gave us some great recommendations on dishes to try. He made a lovely evening out even better with his friendliness and willingness to make sure we had everything we...needed. The food was delicious and even sat in the outside tent we were more than warm enough with the heaters.More

Went out with my husband for cosy dinner. Turned out it was the last one we could go out before the second lockdown. We sat outside by the fireplace, so atmosphere was lovely as if we were somewhere abroad. The lady who served us was...very friendly and attentive. All the dishes were tasteful, our chips came out slightly cold but she sorted out straight away without the fuss. Tasteful meze and friendly service. Thank you Ruta.. we'll be back when able to.More

My wife and i feeling nostalgic about pass adventures, landed at the Real Greek Bournemouth. We came on a Wednesday lunch time to sample some of our favourite cuisine. The Restaurant was recommended by our friends, plus some positive reviews, got our platelets supping. We...were seated promptly ready to order. Ill start with some humus please. Sorry sir unfortunately we cannot serve humus. No humus. Starving. then I asked for prawns got the same answer. By this time my wife has passed out from low blood sugar levels! Moving across the menu getting only closer to the drinks menu. my choices of cutlets, halumi skewer, apple juice and diet cola wasn't available to be served. I was getting a bit frustrated (hangry)and disappointed let down by so little to enjoy. Sensing the waitresses embarrassment, given the fact working all day not serving food. Must be demoralising. Complaining isnt my thing, surely a restaurant with nothing in the cupboard wont servive todays climate. I understand that sometimes you might run out of things (no humus in a greek restaurant) how? Wifey and i got a shock.More

sorry not sure about babies, but they were very child friendly so I would imagine they do cater for babies
