Went for dinner while on a business trip. Restaurant was within walking distance of the Tempe Mission Palms hotel. Had an excellent dinner of saganaki, braised lamb, Greek potatoes and roasted vegetables. Meat just about fell off the bone and was perfectly seasoned. Server was really sweet and very efficient. Wine could have been chilled just a bit more but... More

Yes, it really is a Greek menu, from flaming cheese to kalamata olives, spanakopita, and feta cheese salads. We tried the pizza and the calzones on our first visit, then had hamburgers on our second. All the food was exceedingly tasty and the portions large, the pricing reasonable. The waitress remembered us after two weeks! Oh yes, a glass of... More

Hubs and I went to here for lunch and ordered the meat lovers special. Holy Cow, we were warned the portion was huge but had no idea we would have enough leftovers for a couple of days. Everything on the plate was delish and the waitstaff was prompt and attentive. One of the best Greek meals we have had in... More

My wife and I have come here for years. Then it burned. Now it's back but it's not the same. Obviously cutting quality and quantity to turn a profit. We blew off Octoberfest at Tempe Town Lake since it was so lame. 3 of us ate here for the first time since it opened after the fire. We had the... More

Really good food here! Although the waitress forgot our appetizer, the food came quickly enough that it wasn't a big deal. the food itself was really good. The wood burning pizza was excellent. Worth the visit if you like greek food.
