Ten of us dined at Asteras tonight. The service was wonderful, and the food was ALL excellent. All ten at our table were very happy with their dinners. The helpings were generous, prices very fair, and flavours great, we would go back in a heartbeat, and will recommend it.

We started with tarama salata and pita and it was good. My husband had oysters and he thought they were ok, my mother had prawns and they were good but the dolmades I ordered were served with tzatziki, not avgolemono, which was disappointing, and they were raw in the middle. I ate a couple of bites before I noticed how... More

Excellent Sangria made by the owner, best variety plates if you want to share, and all in all delicious! Only place I eat lamb! The Greek salad is awesome and fresh tzasiki, you can't go wrong. We love it and bring friends to share a lovely evening. I find it too noisy inside so always try for a sunroom table... More

Showed up in this small town and found a restaurant thanks to a recommendation from my hotel front desk clerk. Quaint home that is renovated into a quaint restaurant that provides a level of service that I search for with a superior quality of food. Seldom and rare to find the two co-exist. Thank you for a wonderful experience

Food is absolutely delicious! The prices really aren't too high considering the quality and quantity of food! The menu is a good size with the right amount of selection. It's the kind of place you can dress up for a nice night out or can dress casual if you are just stopping in. The owner is pleasant and helpful and... More

We love Greek cuisine. This is the BEST Greek food we have ever had, and we have had it across the country. Warm atmosphere, superb service, gracious and congenial host, excellent value, creative menu. We dined here twice in 4 days and would go back tomorrow if not leaving Canada. We will be back here soon. You cannot miss this... More

We had great hopes for this restaurant. Were even refered by a food rep. Service was SLOW sat for over an hour before our platter arrived. In what world does a 6 top who sits 30 minutes after a 2 get their appies and entrees by the time the 2 gets their dinner.... especially when the 2 didnt order appies.... More

We ate a wonderful meal at Asteras last night! Instead of ordering a full meal, we each ordered three smaller/appetizer sized dishes (at least we thought so when we ordered) with a half litre of excellent wine (Agioritiko) and shared the 6 dishes. The food was very authentic Greek, delicious, beautifully presented - and we had enough for at least... More

Some of the best Greek Food I have ever eaten and consistently great. The flavors are rich and aromatic, the portions are large and the service is always superb. We have taken groups of all ages to this lovely character house restaurant and they have always pleased every palate. So lucky to have them in our "Old City Quarter"
