Decent food but....

We live about a mile from this restaurant and finally decided to try it out for a Greek food fix. The grilled Kalamari and Spinach spanakopita were both quite tasty as was the hummous and tzatziki dips and the side dishes. However, for the prices we were surprised with the rather small portions... read more

Being New Year's Eve, we decided to order in and thought we'd give them a try, with low expectations knowing how busy they seemed on the phone. We were pleasantly surprised when the order arrived quickly, was fresh and hot, and the chicken souvlaki, Greek salad, tzaziki dip, potato skins, and even the rice was outstanding! My other half was... More

We were a party of five who visited one evening during the week before Christmas. Expecting this place to be busy, not so at all. Two elderly people in our group, one with a walker - only stairs to access the front door and despite the owner being right inside at the door, no attempt to help us or hold... More

We visited Vassili's recently for a wedding rehearsal dinner. There were 20 of us and we reserved a very private area at the back of the restaurant. The service was a little slow to start as they were quite busy but once our orders were taken the service was very attentive. Many of the guests had not eaten here before... More

We enjoyed our recent lunch here and our meals were delicious. I had the prawn souvlaki and my husband had the lamb chops, both cooked just right and very tasty. Our server was very friendly, pleasant and attentive. Both the interior and outside areas are filled with flourishing plants and trees giving a very Mediterranean type atmosphere. We've been here...

A previous review complained about the steak... this is a GREEK restaurant, not a dead cow palace. Go figure. Souvlaki! That is where it's at. And very, very good lamb souvlaki at that. Don't hesitate and is worth the drive. Winning local awards for years.

For years we used to visit this restaurant often, for a casual dinner or for celebrating special days, every time ordering the same dishes. Last time when we ordered a take-out the meat in one of the dishes was bad. It was obvious that it was old and warmed-over, and smelled bad also. Naturally, I went back to the restaurant... More
