I love this place. Their hummus is excellent. Olive oil white beans and garlic on top of a slice of warm bread. The flaming cheese. The pistachio was a bit dry but good food. Great wait staff. On top of all that they're on a canal with really big fish and they're always throwing bread out for them and the... More

We ordered the meat lovers platter for two which is more like a platter for 6. Everything on it was very good but the lamb chops were the best I have ever tasted. It was a wide variety of meat dishes with mixed vegetables, rice dish and potato dish. The platter would easily feed two couples with leftovers. The food... More

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

If you do like Greek food this chain of restaurants is what Olive Garden is for Italian food. Tastes good, You get a lot of... 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
