As much as we love the men in our lives, my girlfriends and I really enjoy spending time just us ladies. There's nothing quite like having a good chat with food and wine with our favourite women!

One of my friends suggested that we try a Greek restaurant in Notting Hill, Mazi, and it was a great pick.

Tucked away on a small street off the main road, it's cosy and characterful without being cluttered, which I liked. I was too busy chatting away to snap a photo of the interior, but you can see some on their site.

First, we were presented with shots of something that we suspected was alcoholic but was only a tiny bit so - a pineapple/passionfruit juice concoction with something akin to grappa, if my memory serves me correctly.

As for the food, it's a menu of smaller dishes that you share with the table, so we chose 3 of their jars - taramasalata, squid ink with fried calamari and aubergine cooked in some kind of delicious way I can't quite remember, alongside some delicious bread and olives -

- and also chose two of their "main" dishes, cold souvlaki wrapped in rice paper and octopus risotto, both of which were very good.

We didn't try any of their dessert (opting to finish the evening in a nearby pub with some more vino, cheekily), but it was a lovely meal. I wouldn't hesitate to go there again, and it's somewhere that you would benefit from going with a larger group so you could try lots of different things.

I feel like girls' nights really do make me feel re-energised and puts a bounce in my step - especially since I went 3 years without being able to do this with my closest friends while I was abroad, so I appreciate it all the more.

We are always looking for fun things to do together, so if you have any suggestions of places/activities/attractions, please share!

  2. so true. i do love my chats with my girlfriends! and over good food and drinks is always a plus! this place looks fab!

  3. The photography is stunning as per usual! The food looks INCREDIBLE and I agree with's wonderful to have the men around but girls nights are always really refreshing :]

  4. That's a cool way of eating food out of those jars c:
    The octopus sounds so delicious <3 And it's funny
    that you call it 'aubergine' as well because I thought
    my country is the only one calling eggplants
    aubergine :P Xx

  5. This is a great find! Doesn't look like your typical Greek restaurant, and that risotto looks so inviting and warm!
