Cozy Greek/Turkish restaurant in Majorna

We had walked by Efessos restaurant many times and finally decided to go in for dinner one Friday night recently. We didn't have a reservation but they seated us with no wait, even though most of the restaurant was full. The candles and blue and white color scheme reminiscent of Greece made for a... read more

Often stay at Spar hotel Majorna when in Gothenburg for business. This time preferred to eat locally instead of going to the city centre. Chose Efessos and selected the moussaka. Service was quick and helpful. Food menu quite extensive, small but adequate wine list. Greek atmosphere in this pretty small restaurant. Somewhere between a three or four, and I would... More

I had dinner in this small restaurant after a show at the GEST theater. Busy place on a Saturday night, reservation are recommended. The service is delightful. The selection of Greek dishes is sizeable, with very reasonable prices. The wine list on the other hand was a bit pricey for the selection. My lamb chops were tasty and pink as... More

The postives: A nice waitress that tried to solve problems. The negatives: I ordered a mixed grill. I didn't like the following: 1. The overal taste was on the sour side. Not how I like Greek food. 2. The pork skewer (souvlaki) was dry. The amount of steam coming from the plate, suggests that the meat came out of the... More

We visited the taverna around 8 o'clock and it was 80% full - a first good sign. The service was kind and attentative and the wine and food was served fast and warm. The meat was tender lamb, the sauce powerful and the sliced potatoes crisp. The wines were good. In all an enjoyable dinner and recommended when you are... More

On a business trip this week in Sweden and stumbled upon this restaurant with two colleagues as it was very near the hotel we were staying in. We all really enjoyed it. The food was excellent, fresh and very well made. The restaurant is small but this adds to the great atmosphere. Overall a great Greek experience.

Excellent Greek food. Very good service. A small restaurant, can get a bit noisy when full. English spoken. Moderate prices.

Great authentic greek food at very fair prices! A small restaurant with only about 35 seats, but the food was fantastic and the prices was right. Will come back!
