We enjoy Greek food but would not return. Our kebabs were little meat and all veggie filler. For a better Greek experience at a better price in Halifax try Athens on Quinpool

This restaurant was excellent. The food was cooked to perfection. Our lamb was "mouthwatering"...........The appetizers were delicious.The homemade bread dipping oil (made on the premises) was the BEST I'd ever eaten. And, much to our delight, it is sold to take home......The service was excellent. We had the pleasure of being served by the owner. I will certainly be back... More

Visited this restaurant for a working dinner. The menu is routine, the food is boring, salty and covered in butter.

This was the second time I ate at this restaurant and both times I found it to be quite good. The place was busy so it took about 10-15 minutes to be seated at a table so we set at the bar. I had a caesar to drink and it was good, not the best one I have had at... More

Having been to this restaurant twice now I am confident in saying that they have hit the marks across the board. Delicious food, inventive wine list, upscale yet comfortable setting but most importantly the best customer service experiences I have had in Halifax so far. Truly an amazing experience overall and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended!
