Delicious fresh food

Fresh squeezed orange juice the best I've ever had; gyro portion (pork) was great and the Greek salad had incredibly fresh tomatoes with bell pepper and cucumber and olives and feta. Watermelon was on the menu but I was too full. Very delicious tzatziki. Will be back!

I love this restaurant, the view, and the service. I eat early sometimes and have the whole place to myself overlooking the city. I love the traditional options- I did have a penne with pistachios once that didn't compete with the other options but really everything on the menu is quality.

Big portions but poor quality... I guess it's ok for someone who's just up to have an average suvlaki. Staff is kind and quick.

The price here is more reasonable than those at the Plaka and the acropolis. We tried the aubergines, pork on the spit, sea bass, spinach with rice and pasta with cheese. The pork and sea bass were nicely cooked; lean and juicey. The aubergines were good but the eggplant was a little bitter. Pasta with cheese is literally pasta with... More

Stopped in for dinner. Terrible food and even worse service! Greek salad- unripe tomato, tasteless feta. Lamb on spit tasted like over cooked beef roast. Pita bread was fried to crisp. To top it all the owner/manager? was rude and service was ridiculously slow even though they were not busy (now we know why). Took 30mins to get the check... More

I originally wanted to order meatballs but they didn't have any, strange. I settled for pork chops and my husband had moussaka. Nothing special. Both were generous portion sizes and both came with fries. Not the greatest fries but the moussaka and the pork chops were tasty. Our hotel re commended this restaurant as great local food with a cheap... More
