Fresh and delicious Greek cuisine on a relaxing patio

Enjoyed a delicious Greek dinner and wine / beer while sitting at a lovely patio in downtown Livermore. Extensive menu, fresh food, knowledgeable server. Had the grape leaves to share as an app and took advantage of a fresh fish special - both delicious.

We stopped for lunch and expected the usual food you get at a Greek diner. First, this place was a bit more upscale than most, with lovely outdoor seating. The wait staff were excellent and helped us select great food. We love gyros, but the flavors of ours was better than any I'd ever had. Another person ordered the moussaka... More

This was a great place. The hummus was sublime. The grilled bread was tasty. The trip-tip caesar was amazing. The service was impeccable. If you like mediterannean food, this is a great place. The drinks were great too! Patio or inside dining, served quickly and with a great sense of humor. Love it!

We decided to explore Livermore. We thought this would be a good spot based on reviews. Wrong. Service slow and poor. My husband had bolonese. I had seafood pasta. Yuck. They did not live up to reviews.

Food was wonderful and on the main street with lots of shops and outside seating. Best part was the waitress, she was on top of things and so friendly and nice. Great place would go again if in area for sure!

Good food in the heart of downtown Livermore. Fun atmosphere, with a nice, but noisy ambience. Many options for Mediterranean inspired foods.

Enjoyed the Greek food at Demitri's many times and have never been disappointed. My favorites are the Souvlaki and Yaya's Mousaka. If you're lucky, they'll have pastichio as a special. Very good too!

What a great afternoon lunch place where you can sit outside on the patio, enjoy some great Greek entrées and wine downtown Livermore by the fountains.
