The owners have a very hands-on approach to their restaurant, and try to greet each guest as they enter, which is a nice touch. Cyma is only small, but it has a cosy and romantic atmosphere, and you can smell the delicious aroma wafting from the door as you approach.
My favourite starter is the mouthwatering spinach and artichoke fondue. This is served with bread and pitta for dipping, and unless you have a hearty appetite, I'd suggest sharing this with a friend. Alternatively, have one to yourself as a light meal.
Another delicious (and entertaining) starter is the Saganaki (flaming cheese), which they flambe at your table.
Main courses include traditional favourites such as moussaka, Greek salad, fresh seafood, gyros, steaks, and souvlaki (kebabs). There are also at least 15 vegetarian dishes on the menu. If you are with a group, try the ossobucco pasta, braised beef shank with Greek tomato sauce and spaghetti, good for four people.
Prices are surprisingly reasonable, but if you are planning an evening meal there, it may be wise to drop by and book a table - the restaurant is fast growing in popularity.
