Our GO TO place

WHenever we want to have a good fish and don't want to waste time looking for a good place, this is where we go. We tried several similar places in Astoria but none of them were so good or so consistent. The menu is somewhat limited but is always good.

We ate there Thursday 14th. Fantastic fresh seafood, great atmosphere. It feels like you are in a taverna on 5he coast of Greece. Everything we had was very good. The seabass for 3 done on the grill, lobster, and the various appetizers were all very good. If you look for fresh seafood at reasonable prices in the New York area,... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants to visit in New York. The fish are so fresh, they were probably swimming a few hours before. The grilled octopus is the best I have ever had. The salads are fresh and the wait staff is friendly and attentive.

No menu, no credit cards, sounds weird at this popular eatery. But, it turned out serving sort of delicious seafood and price was reasonable. However, only seafood was good, pork chops were way of over cooked.

A cup of coffee here took one half hour to come and the fish must have been brought from the dock. In others except for appetizers the service can be painfully slow but it is brought by lovely friendly neighborhood type waitresses. Food excellent . Prices low to moderate.

what's the big deal. I'm brought here frequently & frankly, I can cook better. it's only 'great' for those who can't cook! & what's with the bread instead of pita??? I don't get it.

While I write this review, I am leaving my big Manhattan ego on the side. This little place in Astoria (yes, in Queens!) truly impressed me. The place serves only fresh food - no menu is available, so you have to go with your server's recommendations. The octopus dish as a starter was fabulous, perfectly crunchy in the outside and...

We used to go there quite oftenly some years ago. Great seafood, nice place, great service. Yesterday it was, well, quite behind the other Greek restaurants in the area, judging by the empty tables at dinner, limited "catch" and fuzzy service. Hint: ask for the price of the dish when you order.

We went with the understanding that they don't take credit cards and they don't give you a menu unless you press the case (at which point they are likely to assume you not only a first-timer but annoying!). Also that this place is far from elegant ---- the outside (covered porch) is filled with plastic tables and chairs. No matter... More
