Small town goodness

A typical small town restaurant run by family, who take great pride in the food they serve. Unfortunately the owners think their business is worth money, but fail to realize that " they are the business"!!

the setting is nice but small and cold and the cash register is right on top of someone's table. The food, IF the owner is cooking, is always great. Sometimes, the service is slow, again IF the owner wife is there. So conclusion is the owners are great and if you can time a visit to coincide with them being... More

This is a local staple. Been here for many years. The roast lamb is a must try and I say they got the best calamari in town possibly the area

As this place has been hyped quite a bit, I gave it a try - even though Greek food in North America is usually a disappointment, compared to the more authentic version in Europe or the real thing in Greece. I ordered the Chicken Souvlaki, accompanied by a Greek salad. Price was around 20 dollars. The Greek salad was hands... More

Very busy place right in downtown Castlegar. It is everything you'd expect at a Greek restaurant. Saganaki and chicken souvlaki were textbook. Why do smaller town Greek restaurants make greek salad with lettuce?

Probably the best pizza for miles around! The roast lamb is always great, too, and the staff are excellent! One of my favourite spots in the Kootenays.

We had a choice of restaurants and this one was one of 3 recommend by the owners of the Flamingo motel. The lamb was seasoned just right and the 8 oz steak as great as well. They gave a seniors discount and a complementary desert for our occasion.
