The pork souvlaki was full of flavour as was the chicken. Pork Souvlaki was about $25 USD and Chicken was $28 USD , like I mentioned earlier a... More

We were only able to have the Greek Salad here as part of a food tour but wish we could have had so much more. This was the best Greek Salad I have ever had and we eat Greek a lot. The owner is said to have a private Cheese fridge in his home for imported Greek Cheeses he uses... More

Food is awesome. Service is excellent. And it's just near the cruise port, right on Bay street. It has a balcony so you can enjoy the sights and sounds of Nassau.

I went to this restaurant based on a recommendation, and was extremely pleased. It was very clean, and the food was delicious. This is a family owned establishment, and they are extremely friendly

We took a short getaway cruise and first stop was Nassau. We used to visit Nassau 3 or 4 times a year but our traveling habits changed and we haven't visited Nassau in about 10 years. My wife and I both had a craving for cracked conch so we walked down Bay Street heading for a restaurant that was previously... More

Had a Greek salad as a part of a food tour. The feta was to die for! Not anything like what you get in the US, it was creamy, not crumbly. The pita bread was fabulous as well. Will hit up again next time I am in town.
