About Us

Alexandros, is named after the greek warrior Alexander the Great, whose birthplace was the home town of owner Aris Pathanoglou. First opened in 1997 in Scotland, we moved to a new home in Carlisle, Cumbria in 2000.

We are a family run greek restaurant using traditional greek recipes with a British twist using seasonal home-grown herbs, fruits and flowers, alongside fresh local produce.

Customer Reviews


I was staying in Carlisle last month & had the absolute pleasure of eating your food on a few occasions. I can’t tell you how lovely it was to eat real, traditional, tasty & fresh Greek food, it was depressingly good – you felt like you could be in Greece when eating it but sadly, we can’t be. We don’t have anything like your restaurant near me. Most people who try to cook Greek food fail miserably.

I wanted to enquire if you have any way to post out any of your food? I live in the Greater Manchester area & I’m really missing your food. I would happily pay the postage fees.

You also made a gorgeous side that went with the Kleftiko, it was a giant cous cous dish, absolutely gorgeous! As I’m not able to dine with you anytime soon, would you be willing to share the recipe so I could try to recreate your dish perhaps?

Many thanks.


As always, fantastic night at Alexandros, regretting leaving it so long since last visit. Couple of tweaks to menu and service work very well, actually improving what was already an exceptional experience. We’ll done guys.

The best meal we have had for a long time.
We can now understand why the trip advisor reviews are so high.
Food was 10/10, service was excellent and we will be recommending to friends and family.
We got the mezze sharer and it was amazing 😀

We were only in Carlisle for one night, but had driven past Alexandros earlier in the day and had commented that it had a nice look to it…. positioned at the end of the road and on the corner; not realising that there was a Deli attached to it also.
We hadn’t booked a table, but it was a Tuesday and around 7.00pm so thought we would be ok, that was only just the case and we were were extremely lucky to have been offered a table for two. I highly recommend you book.

The staff here are all very polite, attenuative and extremely nice…especially (I believe he was the owner) the man that served us on our initial order, he was very helpful to my wife with recommendations…. if so, then this was Aris and he was the perfect gentleman and host.

I ordered the Karotokretes – and was blown away by the amazing flavours and tastes, the dish was amazing for what you could describe as just meat balls in sauce, but do not be fooled – I would order this again every time, notwithstanding the incredible quality of this dish the flavours are out of this world – the chef must have an incredible pallet to create such a lasting tasting experience – my wife ordered the Kotopoulo Souvlkai – lets say it was chicken, potatoes and carrots….. but again it wasn’t, because someone in the kitchen had transformed these three ingredients into a mouth watering explosion…… we also both had starters, home made bread and a side of garlic pitta bread and then finished off with a starter each…..but I’ll say no more here, you need to book a table and experience this place.

You will not be disappointed
