Great Flavour!

It is a good Greek restaurant. The flavours were great. The steak was tender but a tad over cooked. The rice was made with chicken stock which enhanced the flavours. The service was very professional but a tad slow. The decor is dated but pleasant enough. It is a little pricy for what you get. Over... read more

Found it on a whim. Was heading somewhere else and saw the sign! Even the sign looked inviting. The staff went out of their way to be helpful, courteous and pleasant. The owner welcomed us in. And then there was the food. Sharing was the plan. A small loaf of fresh sour dough bread followed by a large Mediterranean spinach... More

I was very impressed by the warm welcome and excellent service. Choose a Thursday evening for best seating. What a spectacular view. Could the food live up to this? Yes, it did. Probably the best steak I've had in years, cooked exactly how I like it. Only the Bold Knight rivals the food, but here you have the view as... More

We went there for dinner last year with a gift card we had received for Christmas. Although the food and service were good, we noticed how the prices had really gone up and the portions of food had really decreased.

My husband and I visited Zougla recently and had a great dinner composed of Greek meze dishes and not only. The kalamari was delicious and the soutzoukakia amazing! We enjoyed not only the food but also the atmosphere which was really friendly thanks to both the owner and the staff. Thank you for this experience!

I have been to this place less than a dozen times but I have never had a bad meal yet. Last February I was there twice, my daughter's birthday and Valentine's day with my girl friend. Both times I had Steak Zougla and baklava for dessert. Food is always superb, service equally as good and the staff very friendly. Prices... More

My wife and I ended up here mainly because we saw it from the road. It is fairly unassuming on the outside but the inside is very nice with a decor which works well for a evening out but isn't to fancy for a family meal. The front of house was well staffed with courteous servers and we were quickly... More

This is an unremarkable appearing restaurant, but the service, the selection and the wine list are superb. Highly recommended!
