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.

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.

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.

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

The food is always good and the service is excellent. It's a bit on the small side and therefore lacks on atmosphere

One of Castlegar's top restaurants for many years. The food is exceptional, the atmosphere is quaint and cozy. I recommend the calamari lunch, very generous and filling however I am always left wanting more.
