Great Greek salad. Owner greets everyone at some point in your eating experience. Ate her last year on a local food tour. Had to come back.

Love this restaurant. The service was impeccable. The food was delicious. The outdoor seating had a great view of downtown. We enjoyed a great all around dining experience here...nothing negative to say.

We stopped here for a quick bite to eat and we're glad we did, the calamari was the best ever! And the gyros were fabulous, not cheap but well worth it

Another quick stop on our TruBahamian food tour. We tried their salad and it was delicious! I don't usually eat salads but the homemade feta cheese really made it wonderful. I thought it was interesting that the restaurant is above a jewelry store and wish I had more time to explore it and their menu.

We were in Nassau on business and actually ate here twice. Good food, friendly service. Fast turnaround too which was important to us at lunchtime. I didn't find it any worse priced than anywhere else in Nassau really. Would return again.

Stopped in for some drinks and some apps and was well worth it. Had the grilled octopus - tender octopus grilled with onions and peppers, with a drizzle of house made balsamic vinaigrette. Delicious to say the least. Next time coming back for dinner! Great atmosphere and friendly service.

This Mediterranean cafe is located up a flight of stairs on the main road with all of the jewelry stores. A simple diner like cafe which offers various Greek dishes and pastries. We didn't come in for too much. A light snack is all. We ordered the baklava. The pastry was light and fluffy and crispy. A good balance of... More

For the price of their food, I would not go back. The gyro had precooked meat that was not that great. The conch fritters hardly had any conch. If you are looking for good Greek food, this probably isn't the place. Only reason that this was not a 1 star review was the staff. They were all very friendly.
