I love fusion cuisine, but I had never imagined mexican-greek fusion foods… until my boyfriend and I chose the Wild Donkey. They have the BEST freshly made pita bread I have ever eaten in my life and their eggplant dip to go along with it is to die for. Their lamb burrito confused me at first and then I couldn't... More

My wife and I were visiting family in SLO and we all decided to go out for Sunday lunch. I am a picky eater and when I was told that the restaurant was a "Mexican-Mediterranean" restaurant, I was ready to hate it. I was pleasantly surprised by their fairly extensive menu that included several ethnic specialties but also included an... More

We had a chance to savor the two specialties of this sweet little place--a Greek salad and two tacos. The atmosphere was calm and warmly lit and decorations were great. We stumbled on it by accident and were most grateful. Service was gracious and friendly.

This is a wonderful restaurant. The atmosphere is light and soothing. The soups are amazing and every entree I have tried has been great. I work in downtown SLO and this is a great place for a relaxing lunch. Also good for veggie dishes.

We do a lot of traveling, and I have ordered Moussaka whenever I can. Ever since this restaurant has opened in SLO, their Moussake has been the bar to which all others are compared......and found lacking! We also enjoy the salmon as well as their wonderful greek salad. It is a nice yet casual atmosphere, good service and always a... More

Love this place and go at least twice a month though I admit that we ALWAYS have the same thing because it is too good to give up. Darling little place with much better food than Big Sky down the street with its long lines!

Very interesting, little restaurant serving Greek and Mexican food. We had great service. We had the lamb chops which were served with authentic Greek style potatoes made with olive oil and lemon juice. Yummy!! The presentation was beautiful. The Horiatiki salad was to die for. We will definitely return .
