Tried this place last night and discovered that they had new owners since 08/2014 and it showed. My friend could not eat the chewy steak so I shared my meal. I would have complained to the owner about the very hostile waiter except he was the owner. Walks in a rush and gets the staff to do the same cleaning up empty tables and moving chairs. It would be better to look after the customers that he had. Refusing to provide service to a young couple was the last straw. Yes it was late but others were still being served. Never going back to this place again but due to the location however they will probably continue to survive on passing trade.
Went last night. Nice place at the spot. Live near by so I thought give it a go. Great service. Had mixed grill platter and a vegetarian platter. The veggie platter was $22 and stated it had halloumi I cheese, cauliflower, vine leaves, eggplant. It did have 1x pice of cheese, 1 x vine leaf (squashed down on plate so hard to identify), 2x pieces of eggplant, 2 x pices of cauliflower, 2 slices tomato, 2 slices of cucumber, some dips and bread. It was not good value. But it did taste delicious. The grill plate was good. It had great garlic dip with it. Plus came on bed of Greek salad. It seemed to have more vegetable matter than the vegetarian platter. The chicken skewer consisted of very fatty chicken. My wife wouldn't eat it. We told waitress it was a good meal except the chicken was really fatty. She had no reaction. Gave no response or apology. Maybe she hears it a lot! So give it a go be careful what you order.
Skara Bar is an excellent eatery. The food is always terrific, with generous portions and the wait staff are attentive, friendly and a real pleasure. Can get a bit noisy but it is a Greek restaurant after all. Our favourite restaurant at the Spot, surrounded by plenty of strong competition.
Being a local I've visited Skara Bars several times but hadn't dined there for around two years. Returning with a Cudo voucher, I was pleased to see that the food and service I remember was just as good, if not better.
Our waitress was lovely and made our dining experience very pleasant. The portions were Very generous and we found ourselves struggling to eat our way through our shared entree platter and two mains. The roast lamb was absolutely divine, will definitely be going back for it.
After being refused entry to another restaurant due to them losing our booking *cough espeto cough*, we decided to go to skara bar.
Food was served promptly and was extremely well cooked. Wait staff were very efficient, though not entirely friendly (not to say they were rude, just impersonal). Serving sizes were very decent and even though some of the dishes may be a tiny bit pricier than I'm used to, I was happy paying that amount for the quality of food and the proportion size.
Last night we ate at Skara by default, my husband and I had a booking at a nearby restaurant that we walked out of due to appalling service. From the moment we walked into Skara we were impressed, the Waiter found us a table we had menus and drinks within minutes.
The food was fantastic and very generous servings. The owners were very hospitable, we will be back and we will be recommending to our friends. Thank you for a great night out.
I absolutely love greek cuisine and came to this restaurant for the first time a few years ago. The first time left me fairly unimpressed (the food was nothing special) but this time as a group we were at the spot and wanting to get a table at El Bulli, unfortunately, they were all booked.
We decided to go to Skara Bar, I ate lamb which was tough and tasted pretty terrible, my friends weren't too impressed with their meals either, apart from the disappointment of such bad food, the lack of customer service and rude management left me with a bad taste.
I will definitely not be going there again and after such a bad experience will tell my family and friends what a terrible place it is.
