Mazi

Mazi©
We could blabber about the good idea behind the opening of this modern Greek restaurant, the revisited menu, the crispy feta tempura with a drop of lemon jam, the presentation - sometimes a bit too polished, the cool decor just as it should be etc.

But it would be missing the point of Mazi, which makes it a Notting Hill must-go as soon as the sun shows up: its lovely garden. Hidden, sunny, topped with a canopy full of grapes, it is a promise of Greek holiday. And the perfect date spot.
