I went with a number of colleagues (more turned up later, and were accommodated), and we had a good selection of Mezes, salads and main courses. There was a decent (but not over-large) selection of wines, include both Californian and Greek examples (including a decent Retsina, are far as I could tell). Staff were friendly and the food was excellent.

Food was very good. Especially for this country. This was as good as any I've had in Chicago or Toronto. Service started out poor (I stood for 10 minutes waiting for service when I arrived), but once assigned a waiter it was excellent.

This excellent Greek restaurant is in the industrial/technology park section of Santa Clara. As such it has a lively lunch crowd and does serve dinner as well. We have sat both inside and on the patio to enjoy dinner here. I like in particular their lamb dishes. They also serve a good variety of appetizers and a range of main... More

We sat outside under a small plastic tent which was delightful on a nice evening. The Greek salads were top notch as was my combination Greek plates - four small entrees. We substituted fruit for French fries and were very pleased the pineapple, cantaloupe and honeydew were all very tasty.

My husband and I had lunch here today. We had to make several U-turns to find this restaurant and parking was difficult and we even came at 2PM after the main rush! It is quite pleasant inside and outside. Greek photos and paintings along with Greek flags and blue and white checked tablecloths made for a relaxed authentic feeling. There... More

I love the outdoor patio and the delicious Greek food. I've had tri-tip, Greek chicken skewers, Moussaka, and falafel, all with delicious rice, lemony hummus and fresh pita bread. It can be quite busy at lunchtime, so go a bit before noon.

I usually write reviews when I find the best places and this is definitely one of those. Best Greek in town, like in Greece. Simply delicious, casual and relaxed (like in Greece). Place is always full, which tells you how good it must be.

I go here during lunch time, no parking between 11:30 to 1 PM(need to walk for 3-5 minutes usually ). The place is clean and the owners are here and ensure things go smoothly, but a little bit expensive however not a concern. Lunch usually costs 12-15$ here but definitely worth it. They also seve your dish within 5 minutes... More
