Tried this restaurant because of the rave trip advisor reviews. Not so great. Food was ok, but not exceptional. Value pretty good. Service uninspired. Ate on outside patio; small tables too close together. Don't plan on going back to this one.

We read the reviews here and decided to try this place. It was a Saturday night and it was busy. We started with the Saganaki, a fried cheese appetizer. The method here is to flambe the cheese in brandy. We found the cheese itself overly salty and it lacked the smoothness of other Saganaki I have had. The brandy left... More

We went to this restaurant after I saw it recommended on Trip Advisor. All I can say is that the food, the atmosphere and staff were awesome. Ithaka is walkable from inner harbour & we (Aussies) went with two other couples from different states of USA. The stroll there was delightful & also on the way back, with the gents... More

We had high hopes for this restaurant, given that it has the number 2 spot in Tripadvisor. We ordered the avgolemono, which actually was quite good, and the appetizer platter, which made us happy that we hadn't ordered any of those items as an entrée or larger portion. The Greek salad was mushy, the dressing tasted as if it came... More

If you've never been to Greece, you don't have to go far to get authentically delicious food prepared served by authentic and friendly Greek owners. When we first walked in, the restaurant decor was traditional white with blue trim and pictures of Greece dotted the walls. Greek music played softly in the background. Our family of four, traveling with two... More

I reserved a table based on TripAdvisor reviews and so glad I read them beforehand. Dmitri was the perfect host who made us feel really welcome and made our son have a great evening. They showed him a magic cup, got him to eat all his dinner by promising him a treat afterwards, let him smash a plate and then... More

The food is excellent. The owners are hilarious. They sang and danced for us and Mama came out of the kitchen to chat with the guests. A very entertaining evening. We ordered the appy sampler and it was HUGE. Did i mention the food is really good?
