We had walked by Efessos restaurant many times and finally decided to go in for dinner one Friday night recently.

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!
