Great food, friendly service

My wife and I ate here during our Eastern Canada trip. The Kleftiko that my wife had and the lamb souvlaki that I had were both very good.

The food is rather poorly made, overcooked and not really true to the Greek tradition. When I think good Greek food I think freshness and this restaurant doesn't really nail that one. Very expensive for what it is too. Service is fine, atmosphere is a little claustrophobic but otherwise casual.

The restaurant clams to make everything from scratch and use local ingredients, but it sure didn't taste like one. Our breakfast was very average. We ordered an omelette and eggs Benedict. The omlette was greasy and my eggs Benedict arrived to the table cold. I was offered a new serving, but did not have the time to wait. When the... More

We came here as a family for dinner on a weekend recently. It was not busy (maybe 2 or 3 tables) and we waited 10 minutes at the door before being acknowledged by the staff. Once seated, our server was good (forget his name) and the food was better than I had expected. I have had Greek at a few... More

Stopped here for breakfast and it was very good. Home cooked meals with fresh ingredients. The service was very friendly. We will be back.

Great food and friendly service. Portions are adequate for the prize and the salads are fresh. one suggestion would be for the pita served, to be grilled and brushed with olive oil. as it is served, it comes off stale

We so enjoy coming to Athens, the food never disappoints. Great flavors, presentation and the staff is very welcoming. It feels like you are at home, lots of families and great conversations and laughter going on. Our favorite is the chicken souvlakia dinner, very good and great prices. We always get three or four appetizers for the hole table to... More

This restaurant has the best lamb I have ever tasted with the exception of my wife, who is a chef. Their service is wonderful, efficient, pleasant, and courteous while their menu is huge and the prices are very reasonable. They have been the top family restaurant in Halifax for quite some time now and there is good reason for that.

I enjoyed a lunch for the first time today with some family members. I had the hot chicken sandwich with some excellent home made fries and coleslaw. The other option was chips which were home made and excellent as well. My nephew had a chicken gyro which came with fries and a greek salad. Everyone was most pleased with their... More
