Excellent! Loved it! Was recommended by our friends here. The Romanian waiter spoke at least 4 different languages and we did have fun speaking English Italian and some little Romanian. Sam was supposedly on break to Greece. Too bad we could have done some talking on coral ridge golf course. Food.. Superb value for money

Long wait for ok food. I had the fish which I expected to be very flavorful, but to my disappointment it was not. Service was just ok since they were extremely busy. My finance had the filet which he said was tasty. If you want ambience, then this isn't your choice.

I walked in the restaurant with my family, and with high expectations, but was not impressed at all. Service was pretty good but everything else was average. We were looking very forward to eating some nice Greek food on this vacation and ordered some tzatziki, tyrokafteri, octopus and a Greek salad to start with. The tzatziki was very watery and... More

I had been told about this restaurant for a long time and the grilled shrimp were just spectacular. The food was great.

We actually pre-paid for food at the Ramada in Fort Lauderdale as part of a Caribbean cruise which was so awful that we tossed the coupons and had a great dinner here. I knew from reviews that there would be a line & that they did not take reservations. We waited about 25 minutes; someone came and seated different sized... More

The staff is warm and friendly, service prompt and the owner is usually there. (funny how that works ,huh?) We love the Greek salad, sometimes with the broiled greek chicken wings for lunch. They also have the best freshest tender Gyros pita if were in the mood. For dinner the Greek Chicken and the Lamb Chops wow! Try the Greek... More

When lines form every night, you know this place does something right! Firstly I want to commend the host staff outside on their proficiency. Wow they get that line seated in no time. It could look like a two hour line and voila you're seated and ordering in 20 minutes! Now on to the food. It's consistently good and reasonably... More

Firstly there's always a line up so be prepared and be patient. The chickpea humus and lamb chops are excellent although the lamb hops used to be five in a plate are now four. Great place for families to share food by ordering different dishes. A little noisy for our tastes but well worth the price quality ratio. The service... More

Without doubts the best Greek cuisine in Florida. Incredible lamb chops , fish and Greek salad. Long lines at times. But who wants to eat at restaurants on weekends without a wait. ,,

We drive 45 mins at least once a month for their lamb chops. Even when the line out the door is long... It's worth it! ( the line goes fast anyway.). Great Humus, Horiatiki salad, green beans, shrimp and more. The best Greek food around!
