Great seafood

Have to say Greek is not one of our preferred cuisines, so we opted for the seafood basket, which was really very nice. Might be surprising to get such good seafood in a desert, but Adelaide is not that far away really.

Our first impressions were from the overall ambience and buzz of the restaurant, the breadth of the menu and the fast movement of the waiting staff. We both ordered a mixed plate of lamb and chicken souvlaki which arrived quite rapidly and was perfect and served with a fresh salad - only problem was my wife couldn't eat all hers.... More

One of the better restaurant of the place but a bit more pricey. Having said that, the food portion is adequate. Service is faultless, she was happy and friendly. Water served promptly without asking was apreciated. I ordered an entree and main meal, I could not finish it and I am a big eater. It was delicious, not the best... More

I can understand why this restaurant has such a high rating. It has a buzz to it, and Wendy is a wonderful host. Fast, friendly and efficient service. Our group were all satisfied with their meals and the dishes featured top ingredients and fresh presentation. We ate at Umberto's and John's but this place is definitely tops and deserving of...

We had a wonderful meal at Tom and Mary's. Waited on by the wonderful Wendy. My Mousakka was perfect. No complaints there. Husbands Mexican steak apparently hit the spot too. He said he would go back for that meal again. It was a tad expensive however, happy to pay for it again and again though.

This is a real 'go to' place in the outback opal mining town of Coober Pedy. Wendy greets you warmly right from the start and you are assured of an evening of great and plentiful Greek food and friendly accommodating service.

From the minute we walked up the stairs and Wendy greeted us at the doorway, it set the evening, great food, great hosts, great service.

Lots of choice on the menu here and a friendly welcome. Not a lot of special atmosphere, but it is busy and popular. The meals are a good size and good value.

The young waitress was very friendly and proficient and the Greek Salad was superb. Just a pity the Moussaka was presented as a slab on a plate, instead of individual hotpots. I also expected more flavor for the $24.

I don't even know how to start, George from oasis motel told me about the saganki prawns ( I think I got that right ), and I was not dissappointed! I can't remember the last time I had a meal and just smiled, and I'm still smiling! Tom and Mary are really down to earth, great people who know food.... More
