Chef Peter Conistis’ extensive menu offers diners both traditional and contemporary Greek dishes that are designed to be shared – and you’ll find something for everyone. The restaurant is not as traditional as you may expect – the decor and furnishings are modern yet they remind you of being on holiday. Comfortable banquette seating, cushions in abundance, soft colours and traditional Greek music complete the experience.
You will be well fed at Alpha, but do try several dishes if you can. Delicate hiramasa kingfish is a less traditional way to start but the tender flesh is cured in Greek coffee giving it the slightest tang. The spanakopita – a traditional spinach, leek and feta pie – is an absolute must. It’s a spectacular dish, and typical of what Alpha is all about – simple, heart-warming, perfect-to-share, honest, good food.
PSST! Check out Alpha’s food store (open weekdays) for all things Greek – traditional products, gourmet treats, take-home meals, piping hot coffee and freshly baked goodies – yum!
