MY MAIN recommendation for Retsina & Mousaka is that you should be starving before you go there.
The portions are enormous - so huge that I wish we had shared a main, because the desserts looked mouth-watering. I did manage to force a morsel of baclava down and force-fed the rest to my husband, Michael.
The food is simply delicious - every mountain of it.
We shared starters of houmos and loucanika (smoked port sausage), the former needing a touch more seasoning and garlic, but the latter was bursting with flavour.
We both went for Greek favourites: Me stifado, fall-off-the-bone beef and Michael had kleftiko, lamb he described as "delicious, really tender and not at all fatty". We didn't need the potatoes - light and fluffy inside - and rice, but it was all impossible to resist.
There are both meat and fish mezedes (like a meze) if you want to taste everything, apparently for two people but I would suggest an army. You might need to lean on each other as you waddle out of the restaurant.
The atmosphere was buzzing with a mixed clientele, not surprisingly drawn to such a lively and traditional restaurant offering generous portions at reasonable prices.
Starters were around £4-£5, mains £10 including vegetables and desserts £4-£5. They were so friendly I don't think they would mind if you shared everything. I certainly will be next time I go back. I want to have room for a whole dessert.
