Fresh, well-prepared Greek food at affordable price

This is a casual dining restaurant a stone's throw from The Garden Cinema, a Norwalk institution, and is a great choice before or after a movie.

Even though we live so close, it's a treat to sit by the water and enjoy such good food--it makes us feel like we're away. We went the night before my boyfriend's birthday and sat at the bar. We ate delicious small plates, enjoyed the chat and recommendations of "locals" who come from Long Island, and appreciated the attention and... More

The food is terrific, however it's really noisy. IF you dine early, you might be able to have it a bit quieter. Food is a great value and delicious!

I have eaten here a couple of times, once for dinner and once for lunch and both were pleasurable experiences. The staff is very friendly and efficient and the food is traditional and tasty.

While visiting from Houston, found Pontos on Trip Advisor. Fantastic food, brought back memories of our trip to Greece last May. Greek salad, chicken lemon soup, dolmades and beeftekia were excellent. And the tzatziki was the best we've had stateside. Yummy!

It's rare to find such a casual family run restaurant with such good food. Greek and Marouli salads are particularly good. The Tigania Chicken Classic Style is a must have. Service and ambiance are efficient and very friendly. If you are there on a Saturday evening come before 6pm otherwise expect a waiting line.

This is a family-run place offering a menu on which everything is fresh and cooked to order. The country-style greek salad is outstanding. The sampler plate of hummus, etc. is very good. My wife and I marvel at the quality of the tomatoes and the feta cheese is oh so creamy and not too salty. The souvlaki is excellent, the... More

Went with high hopes, but will not be back. Had Greek salad and tzatziki with pita (you had to pay extra for the few pieces of pita) for starters. Then ordered gyro platter which had tomatoes, more tzatziki and pita, etc. --waitress should have said platter is redundant to what you have already had and suggested different entree choices. Ambrosia's... More
