Alpha is a modern sort of Greek restaurant, make no mistake, but the Hellenic references in the look (not least the formidable fresco-andcolumns touches) make it very clear which end of the Med you're visiting. Though staff stumble a little, the greetings are warm and there's cheer  when hot pita and taramasalata hit the table. Xinomavro, agiorgitiko and assyrtiko might not roll off the tongue when you're ordering them, but they go down beautifully with Peter Conistis's food, whether it be haloumi tanned from the grill and lifted with ouzo, lemon and caramelised fennel, or the taverna heartiness of grilled southern calamari in vine leaves with an earthy hit of ink and spinach. Pineapple galaktoboureko, meanwhile, is an attractive twist on the classic fillo-wrapped custard, lavished here with passionfruit and an ouzo sorbet. Want to play it just as Greek but a bit more loungey? Try the new upstairs addition, Beta, for drinks and mezze.
