Great location and premises, love the fresh fish shown on ground floor and ability to pick yours. Overall great restaurant some members of staff should be re trained, also jackets taken at the beginning of the night but you need to investigate and find the cloakroom to get it back and because no ticket was given I had to go and hunt for our jackets. Not very well planned. Just some minor details that should be addressed for that kind of level of restaurant.

Rarely does a restaurant live up to it's reputation as well as Esitiatorio Milos did for us. From the bread and oil all the way to the dessert, food was perfect, service flawless. Fabulous job. Of course expensive, of course you could find equally good food at a lower price, but at this level you're paying for the service, the experience, the consistency. And these guys deliver brilliantly.

I have eaten may times at Milos and thoroughly enjoy their food - especially their lunch menu, it is exceptional value for money. I adore the octopus starter!

My partner and I came for Valentine's Day late lunch and had the lunch time menu. The octopus was fantastic, the wine was lovely! He loved his lamb. I had the clam pasta, which is a £5 supplement. I complained because the pasta was so salty. I had clearly left half my pasta. I informed the waiter and he took the meal away. I saw the chefs try it and shake their heads and that was it. No apology, no offer of a coffee. We didn't want anything for free at all - but just a simple apology would have sufficed. It really left a bitter taste in my mouth, especially seeing the chefs dismiss my comment. My partner said the pasta was so salty and inedible and I had barely had two mouthfuls. It is a real shame, I may go back again, just for the octopus starter, as it really is fab! But I doubt I will go back for special occasion, or to recommend to any of my friends coming to visit London.

I had dinner with my family last Friday to celebrate the birthday of one of us. The food was amazing and so was the service. Fish was super fresh and cooked perfectly. Great variety too.
We asked and we got a table close to the window. I would say a great attention to the service and to the client.
Price is high but u get the top quality and service. So money well spent.

I have been going there for some time then stopped as the set lunch menu got worse and worse. Yesterday it was really terrible. The Greek Salad was soggy, not fresh and with one olive! the fish was plain and with boiled cauliflower & boiled broccoli that were both tasteless. What happened to flavouring and making each meal taste great. My guest had 2 small lamb pieces that were tiny and lots of French fries that were soggy. No point to have a set lunch menu just to offer a very cheap version of the food!

Don't waste your time or money on this tourist trap. The menu looks fantastic and it is, as in fantasy. The salt baked fish is too big or small for your table, will take too long to prepare and then some. The other dishes that look good they just sold the last one. For you there is lovely looking fresh sea bream that translates into a dry overcooked slab at 100 pounds per kilo, and yours was at least one kilo. and if you forgot to order a side, well too bad that price does not include one and the waiter forgot to mention it. Also beware of the golden oysters at 7 pounds a piece, unlike the others at 4.5 pounds. The waiter will suggest them as if they were all the same. First time in London that I declined to pay the 12.5% discretionary service charge. From the moment you enter till the minute you leave you'll feel taken and even mocked by the numerous staff.

The lamb chop menu was a very small portion with just a two mouthful of lamb. Very poor portion with tiny chop. Three chops would have been better and with less chips!

My third visit to this restaurant and I intend to repeat. Service is impeccable the food is fresh and well presented. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. My Mum did not enjoy the wine so we were offered a glass for her of a different one for free. Always a fantastic experience never disappoints.

Sea bream was exquisite as was broccoli and mixed salad. My son had lamb and raved about it (although he is not really a lamb eater!). Service impeccable and they honoured our limited time so so well. Thank you All.

The staff are very friendly, they made my dinner very joyful.
I was very much impressed with the chef in charge, he has excellent Managment skills, he managed both his staff and the customers very well! He worked really hard to make our experience great.
The guy in the reception was very nice, and the Morrocon waiter too.
The food was good but the audience and the vibes were great!
I will definitely come again, and I’ll recommend it to my friends

Super fish restaurant with great selection of excellent Greek wine. Dining a la carte comes at a considerable price though I am told that one can have a delicious fixed menu dinner (eg for a group of people) at reasonable cost.

It is always one of the best places for fish in London. Outstanding place, top quality food and notable wine list (with high recharges). Expensive but it worth the visit. I will for sure be back again.

we have dined 3 times - unfortunately our experience on the 31st has left us doubtful of revisiting.

To start we ate the Milos special (cold) and calamari (overcooked/cold) followed by shrimp which was perfect however the lobster was was cold and overcooked in pasta that tasted like dish water.

Side of Greek salad was WARM? as if it had been under a heat lamp - the fries were also cold - of which we didn't even order but still charged us for.

Our meal which was £200+ for 2 people (we do not drink alcohol) was such a let down this time. We like to leave a tip on top of the service charge, however we felt like asking for a refund of our bill.

The service was short, sharp and snappy. They constantly look over your shoulder as if they are in a hurry to get you out. It's a shame as we have never had a visit as poor as this. We hope Milos takes feedback seriously.

Delicious but very expensive. Fish sold by the kilo and not unusual at least on New Year’s Eve for 1 kilo to be priced at £85-100 pounds sterling. Meal for two with apéritif and wine and 3 courses easily runs to £ 350. Still very delicious and if you can splurge for a special dinner, recommended. Starters and desserts also terrific and wine list has some very good Greek wines

Do not go to this restaurant save your money by far the Worst restaurant we have ever had the misfortune to be in anywhere in the world. The ambiance is zero. Tables empty . The Management & especially the waiting staff have a severe attitude problem ,the air of superiority that exudes from every one of their pores is stifling.Their staff training must be non existent as was clearly displayed by the server we had the misfortune to have ,she seemed genuinely more interested in gazing at her tattoos than actually listening to any questions asked . Her knowledge of their menu and indeed in general fish ! More than bizarre considering the display of fish they have on show not one part of her thought to take her guests over to show the offers of the day.When we ordered fish in salt asking what type of fish it would be she shared this gem “probably sea bass not sure it will be fish of some sort” but you better not be in a hurry as it takes 1.5 hrs to bake( a important point missing from their menu). I can only conclude Today’s fish must have been whale. Lobster which we did order was boiled till it was brick like consistency and oh boy was it stinky which we asked to speak to a manager regarding this ,which was met with a thunderous tut and sigh by our server as she stomped off.
The manager when asked by us to taste what had been served to us ,took a fork full and nearly threw it all up ,then took lobster only off our bill . Excellent customer relations definitely not . Again bad relations with a superior attitude of you should feel grateful we let you dine in our restaurant how dare you question the quality even if it is poor . Do you not know we are a exclusive worldwide chain, food quality to your liking or not you should feel grateful we let you enter our hallowed doors.
Which I can assure you we never will again pass through in any country that has the misfortune to have one of these overpriced overrated fish cafes and neither will any colleagues or friends .

All good
only remark is that after mains they seem almost to forget you are still there, it requires some effort to get their attention back.
