Here for lunch

My husband ordered cheese croquettes with salad. I order Salad Paysanne. Here at 1:30 PM for lunch with a tour bus passing through town. The menu is in Greek, French and Dutch, but our waiter helped with English explanation. We were very pleased with our choices. Friendly wait staff. Prompt... read more

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!!
