When I am hungry for good Greek food, this is the place to come. They have delicious grape leaves. Just like home made. The staff were friendly and helpful. There is indoor seating and a lovely outdoor patio. Love their Baklava!

Service was impeccable, I was greeted by friendly servers as soon as I walked in. They have delicious food, plenty to choose from and the portions are very appropriate. I've never had a meal here I didn't like, the still salmon is my fave, also the chicken gyro.

We visited this restaurant as we were staying locally, had seen the reviews on TripAdvisor and fancied something a little different. This is very much a cafe, with some of the seats out on the street. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good and tasty. The plate was a bit overcrowded and looked like the food had...

I went there for a business reception. We met on the back patio for heavy hors d'oeuvres. They kept the hot bar stocked with food and waiters circulated to offer water and iced tea.

We had outdoor seating for dinner, it was lovely. I ordered a gyro (not the most exciting choice) but it was SO good. Service is very good. They make sure you always have what you need and make sure everything is going well. Don't pass this place up if you're in Long Beach.
