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

I have been here many times with family and friends from Peterborough. I just love this place. It's so classy. However, the price is reasonable. My favourite item on the menu is the Grilled Octopus. I mean it is just so well done it is like living a dream. The atmosphere is simple elegance not overpowering. The service is individualized... More

We were quite enthusiastic about eating good Greek food, and really enjoyed the meal as we ate it, but within an hour we had headaches and unquenchable thirsts - the kind you get from too much salt and hidden additives/flavour enhancers. Shame.

Definitely a cut above the norm. The meals, Anna's special stuffed lamb chops and the Greek sausage, were both excellent in flavour and presentation. A very good greek salad both in size and taste was included. The service was attentive and relaxed and George not only took your money; but also took an interest in his guests. A return visit...

The service is personal and prompt. George is a very good & friendly host. The knowledge George has regarding the wine list is awesome. The best Greek food in Peterborough by far. I would recommend this restaurant. The staff is all very friendly. Anna does a wonderful job in the kitchen.

The service was the only thing that wasn't 5 stars. Well except the one ply toilet paper in the washrooms that is pretty sad. But the food was cooked like something off of Hell's Kitchen and was prepared as if chef Ramsey was managing. Would defiantly recommend this place to anyone who likes greek food. Best make reservations tho we... More

Really loved eating here. I am a tourist so I can't really compare to other local restaurants that much, but this place was delightful. The waiter was very classy and polite, the owner was friendly and really nice. The food was delicious too and the prices are low for such a meal, especially compared to other places which would sell... More
