RECOMMENDATION | Odyssey Greek Restaurant in Chesterfield

By Molly Scott | 23rd May 2019

What I like best about Odyssey Greek restaurant is that it genuinely feels like you’re holiday! No mean feat considering the restaurant is actually located in Chesterfield town centre. My husband and I are huge fans of Greece. Between us we’ve ticked off most of the Greek islands and have shared many happy memories there so it’s wonderful to have somewhere that feels like being on holiday on our doorstep. A perfect venue for date night!

Odyssey Greek restaurant has traditional, stylish decor. Starched white tablecloths, fresh flowers on each time and lots of candles. Huge windows let in lots of natural light. It really does feel like you’re eating in an authentic, upmarket restaurant in Greece itself.

Perfectly chilled ouzo was served as a complimentary aperitif… and that only added to the holiday feel. The menu is exclusively Greek. All the regular favorites plus many I’d not heard of. I thoroughly recommend the meze to start – it was beautifully presented and offered a good selection of mainly vegetarian appetizers including a range of dips.

Service was excellent throughout – unobtrusive, efficient and friendly.

Three courses, coffees and a bottle of wine came to about £80 so not cheap, but we were happy to pay a premium for the quality food and relaxed, holiday ambiance. We visited in early evening and enjoyed a very civilized child free date night. Odyssey may well be more child-friendly during the day but be aware there is only one option on the children’s menu (burger – something my own fussy eater doesn’t like!).

NB:  If you fancy making a night of it I’d suggest a botanical cocktail from nearby Bottle and Thyme to kick off your evening!
