If you fancy swapping the Alboran for the Aegean, HELAS – Restaurante Griego is an excellent option.
Run by a Greek couple who moved their operation from Seville, this quiet little back-alley restaurant very quickly fills up the street every evening with diners who wish to make the most of the rather secluded outside terrace.
Just minutes from the busy Calle Compañía and Plaza de la Constitución, HELAS transports you to Greece with its vast offering of dishes.
Start off with a selection of sharing appetisers, including tzatziki, taramosalata and feta, all served with freshly baked Greek bread.
Then, move on to moussaka or gyros for a main, before washing it down with a fresh Greek Mythos beer and some baklava.
Slightly above average prices, but well worth it for deliciously fresh food and warm service.
