An attractive small terrace above street level. A good menu with helpful and polite staff. One of very few places with outside space in the centre of Nassau

We enjoyed our breakfast here, but the place is a little hard to get to....we ended up going in the back door and through the kitchen!

This was one of the stops on the food tour that I took on November 13. Loved the food served then (simple Greek salad with Pita Bread). Took two friends back the next day for lunch. We were treated like family! The food was wonderful, and the service warm and very welcoming. After church on Sunday, five of us made... More

Any day in this place in the Bahamas, Nassau to be precise............... is an easy way to know Greece if you don't get to go to Greece. This family run restaurant is well managed by the Dad and sons and their wives, if I remember correctly. The Dad comes along quite often inquiring about the food and service and joining... More

From the minute my wife and I entered the restaurant, I knew we had chosen well. We were greeted with a large smile and seated in a nice cool spot. I was hot and thirsty, so the ice cold Kalik in a frosted mug was just want I needed. We both loved the Greek salad and Souflaki plates. AnnaMaria was... More

Above a family owned jewelry store. Indoor/outdoor seating. Missing a bet if you don't sit outside, second floor on the shaded veranda. Can watch the traffic and people walking by. The food is authentic Greek, owned/operated by the same Greek family for over 50 years. Excellent menu choices and very friendly wait staff.
