If you like authentic greek food you will LOVE the place. My personal favourite is the Lamb-Gyro...Very good and friendly service, the staff always makes you feel like a part of the family! Love the atmosphere, even if you just stop by for a couple of drinks at the bar...its worth every minute you spent of your time!

When you walk in you right away feel the Greek vibe! The view is beautiful. The service and owner so friendly and you can tell they work hard at the food they prepare. (For those who posted the service is slow, it's because you are getting fresh food cooked in an authentic style by a person who puts pride in... More

We live in Sint Maarten and frequent here at least once a week. I've never had a bad meal here. The moussaka is excellent, the chicken philly is my husbands favorite. I highly recommend it!!

Not really what we expected it to be. Bad vibes, not very friendly, food was ok, but consider it a self-serve restaurant just about.

We stopped here for a few drinks at the end of the day. The service was great and we got to sit and watch the lights change under the new causeway which was pretty cool.

Our first few meals on our trip were disappointing because they were not cheap, the food was just averagely not good, and the service was terrible (long waits and rude staff). This place was so refreshing!!! It was moderately priced, all our meals were great, and the staff was the friendliest yet! We did have to wait a bit for... More

The servers here are very friendly, as is the local dog Lady. I had the gyro, and it was good. Not the mix of meat that you usually get - it was all lamb meat. One in our party tried the red mullet, which I hadn't heard of before, and it was very good too. You get a nice view... More

We went with friends to the restaurant for an evening meal. The feta cheese/olives appetizer was amazing as well as the pita slices with dipping sauce. We had ribs (a Friday-night special), and also the spinach pie. Prices were moderate. You can dine-in by the marina or take back to your place for a nice, effortless meal. Would go again,... More
