Estia Taverna

Just returned from their soft opening and I gotta tell ya, for a soft opening they sure seem to have everything under control.
From the welcoming managers Steve and Neil, including Matthew, a charmer from their center city sister, to our wait person, Jessica, who was such an uplifting, warm and efficient person who aims to please, it's got a lot going for it. The place itself is a warm, wood toned, down-to-earth but bright tavern in Radnor. There is a lot of banquette seating and a bar that greets you upon arrival.
We shared a pita bread appetizer with 3 different dips (the red pepper was to die for).
My mate raved over his halibut with potatoes, carrots and peppers in a delicious tomato sauce while I chose my usual favorite from center city's louvraki, which is a grilled sea bass, that was deadly good -- even better then the city one.
We shared a spinach/rice side and both thought that the portions were certainly acceptable even though they claim them to be less than their city sister.
This place should be very successful once it opens on Saturday.
Noise level at 6 pm was very acceptable and no distracting background music competing with our conversation.
A winner!
