Superb

It was several years since I was at this restaurant. What a change! We had the most wonderful Dining experience here. I love the small restaurant feel. It's upscale and the food is excellent. If you want a fine dining experience in a relaxed location this is a good option. I loved it. Opa!

If you like roast lamb that is delicious then this is the place. I got the roast lamb dinner to take out-enough for 2-its savoury taste melts in your mouth. Highly recommended for Greek food in town.

The food is cooked by an original Greek lady. She is a butcher herself so she knows the best pieces of meat! The souvlaki lamb melts on your tongue.

Been to many cities and restaurants. See, I can enjoy a real 5 stars venue and I don't mind the modest place with modest service and average food. I'm not being a snob or any pretentious turtle-neck-wanna-be-richy-rich-in-my-Landrover here, I am only telling you to forget about this outdated and nasty restaurant. I've eaten street food in Latin America and don't... More

We love coming here. The food is as good as the guaranteed warm welcome and how nice to have people that truly know their wines.

Previous reviewers were "on the money". Very tasty food, approachable and affordable wine selections. Maybe the best moussaka I've had in recent memory. Staff is "old school", friendly, professional, attentive... Not inexpensive but would say it is good value for the dollar spent, portions are generous..greek salad simple, traditional and very tasty. Hard to imagine not enjoying an evening at... More

George and his sister Anna do it right. Anna is the cook and George is the wine guy. The food is original the wine is great and the service is exceptional

We have visited several times over the past decade during our yearly vacation to cottage country. The food and service are consistently very good, perhaps have even gotten better over the years. Anna cooks to tender perfection and her hand is assertive with the spices. George is also fabulous in the kitchen but his true talent is with his wine... More
