Good lunch, fairly priced.

Had lunch here and really enjoyed it. The chicken souvlaki lunch plate was exactly what I expected and the prices were very reasonable.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at this fabulous restaurant last week. The food was delicious and our waiter was very pleasant and new the menu inside out. Great wine selection. We will go there often but will only order 1 appetizer with our meal as the portions are big as well as delicious.

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or any pretentious turtle-neck-wanna-be-richy-rich-in-my-Landrover here, I am only telling you to forget about this outdated and nasty restaurant.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
