About The Life Goddess, experimental greek devine

In Greek tradition and culture cultivating, preparing and sharing food is a ritual. The journey of the senses starts from mother-earth and finishes at a feast on a table where all the family, friends and companions share the same nourishment and enjoy the sublime result of their efforts. For Greeks preparing a meal for someone is the ultimate token of respect, gratitude, friendship and love.Our philosophy is that good quality sustenance is the epitome of a healthy and happy life! At The Life Goddess we offer food that is grown in the ideal Greek climatic conditions: fruit and vegetables ripened under the abundant Greek sunlight, meat, fish and poultry grown by local cattle farmers and fishermen using traditional environment-friendly methods, superbly balanced, mouth-watering appetizers, salads, main courses and preserves in recipes that will simply blow your mind and arguably the best wines you ever tasted!The Life Goddess, greek experimental divine, our second project that opened in Kingly Court mid of September, encaptures a great effort to serve not only proper greek food but unique greek wines. The One Barrel project is a well executed idea that will offer 15 experimental wines in a total quantity of 300 bottles only, each time. Signature cocktails will be made and served exclusively for The Life Goddess, experimental.

The waitress wasn't as attentive to our table as we'd liked. We had to signal to call her over a couple of times.

We love Greek cuisine and our family have holidayed in Greece for more than 30 years, to various islands and mainland destinations. It was a real treat to find your restaurant in central London and we look forward to coming back soon. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch on Saturday 10th March - thank you.

This was my second and LAST time at your restaurant. I went there with my parents after a lovely experience the first time round. The food was late, cold and burnt. The staff was almost non-existent and when i said that the food was cold, instead of, first acknowledging my dissatisfaction, she got all defensive and started talking about lots of irrelevant stuff on why. It was an utter disappointment, not to mention the expensive prices! Despite our dissatisfaction, she didnt even offer a courtesy compensation- even a cup of tea would do!I am going to tell all my friends& colleagues about my experience. Those 1-star ratings, in fact, consider them 0! Sorry to see such a nice-looking and cosy place go down. Our experience yesterday just doesnt go with the “blurb” you post on your website about yourself- all that about sharing and culture and hospitality...such a shame!!!

This is an entirely different place from a few years ago when it was serving truly fine Greek good. The ingredients are cheap, it appears the manager is cutting corners where he/she can. Seems like the place has given up on quality, detail and experimentation. The food is barely ok, very basic and unsophisticated cooking. Extortionately expensive for the quality served. I felt cheated and fooled. Will not be returning back.

Although the staff were friendly the service was very slow. Not necessarily a problem but our food was brought out at different times meaning we didn't really get to eat together! We ordered a mythos and was brought a dark fix bitter beer, which my son didn't really like, but all they had, but was billed for a mythos! Also was billed, quite royally, for two extra tiny baskets of bread for our mezes! Shame because the concept of the restaurant is good but the service, food and overpricing is below average

We visited The Life Goddess for the first time with a brunch voucher we were gifted for a birthday. Unfortunately we were treated poorly. We arrived at 12pm to a completely empty restaurant and asked to sit by the window. We were told there were lots of bookings and couldn't sit there (an hour later we left, and still no one had sat by the window.) Service was very slow, and the waitress wasn't very friendly (though we heard her being lovely to the two other tables that eventually arrived.) We decided to not to leave a tip because of the poor service, and were glowered out of the restaurant. Such a shame when someone chose this experience for us.

Atmosphere and good vibes get a 10/10 in this marvellous little corner of Kingly Court - however we were a bit let down by the limited drinks menu and although we were promised nibbles with our bottles of wine for my friend's birthday when we arrived, we didn't get any in the end. Loved the crowd and the DJ absolutely smashed it, we did appreciate there was oenomelo as well on offer but maybe reintroduce some of your delicious cocktails as well on your Sunday menu!!

IT was a great experience though I wouldn't say that it was fully authentic. I would've expected some more of an authentic Greek atmosphere. It was very much 'londonerised'. Overall I would recommend the restaurant as it wasn't overly big and I presume that the prices where acceptable for London. Very nice food though.

The Summer Octopus was excellent and I would recommend it. The meze starter on the other hand was very tired and well below the standard of the average Greek taverna. The service was indifferent but the atmosphere was completely undermined by a series of deliveries and the staff deciding to put out the rubbish halfway through lunch. The location is excellent but this is not somewhere I could recommend - even to tourists.

Main menu was not available. Special Easter menu was available, only written in Greek and the waitor was unable to translate clearly into English. No vegitarian main courses available. We left and went elsewhere.

For a small menu like this,i would except to have all the options and not to decline most of our choices on a Friday night. Also, only 3 wine options! from a catalogue with at least 20.
