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.

The only fresh item was... More

We were pleased to find a Greek restaurant in Castlegar which served authentic greek dishes. I noticed the virgin oil used in the salad was high quality. Service was a little slow and owners did not seem to be customer service oriented. Overall experience was adequate and food was good. Pricing seemed to be on the average side.

Found this restaurant while driving through downtown Castlegar. Ok, I love Greek food. Ordered the Shrimp Santorini. Described as shrimp, spinach and feta baked in a marinara sauce. When it arrived, I could not figure out what it was. Some salty marinara sauce on the bottom, chopped uncooked spinach, a few frozen shrimp thrown on top and a bit of... More

Not only is this place one of my favorite restaurants in the Kootenays, it is one of the best restaurants I’ve ever had the opportunity to dine at. Although the restaurant isn’t glitzy or glamorous, it is clean and cute. The normal Greek chachki adorn the walls and is a pleasant atmosphere. The food is always fresh and so tasty.... More
