Very good Greek food in Ghent

Tried the Greek salad, calamari, giouvetsi, mousaka, and the recommendation of the day, soutzoukakia. Calamari was average, but came with a great tasting tzatziki. All other food was excellent and it would stand well in a restaurant in Greece. The service was great, and the value was good (except... read more

Lively atmosphere from owners who obviously have a local following. Decent table wine, good octopus, but lackluster entree. Fine for a quick business meal.

Imagine that you are going with your family to a Greek restaurant after being in Greece because you definitely loved the country, food and people. The first thing you do is asking for a food recommendation and the waiter says "I cannot give you ANY recommendation. If you don't like the food it will be my fault. I am sorry"... More

Restaurant isn't too big, so we were glad to have made a reservation. We got a big plate with olives, feta cheese and some radishes with our pre-dinner drink, which always is a good first impression. Both starters and main dishes were on the large side and really tasty. The restaurant offers some menues, but I have to admit there's... More

Food was really good! Friendly and fast service. Although it was very busy there when we went there with 6 people. But it was no problem to them.

The food was really good, the service is perfect. And the price for a city like Gent is too much cheap!!

Nice environment, good music, excellent food. For the ones who enjoy Greek cuisine is a good place to go. The portions are very big. The desserts are simple but also very generous. Not recommended to vegetarians, though. The options are restricted to first course only.

We had eaten at lunch and only wanted a main course meal for the evening. Our meal here was very tasty. We ordered two meat dishes and two prawn. Each dish came with a fresh salad and rice, Greek pasta or potatoes. Between us we all tasted the rice, pasta and potatoes. We all agreed that the food was appetising.... More

Came across this restaurant by accident and were very pleasantly surprised. Good service, really tasty traditional Greek food, nice warm, friendly ambience, and well located at the lower end of the main street, not far from the Church of Gerard the Devil. Very good!
