Came here with my husbands cousins after seeing a picture of lamb chops that one of them had posted! Nice atmosphere although a little noisy. As for the food it was wonderful!! We started with grilled shrimp that was accompanied by a shredded carrot and lettuce salad. That was followed with delicious lamb chops with the same salad. The chops... 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

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 for the 7euro bottled water). Overall, with a beer and ouzo...

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.
