Amazingly good food!!

The line was quite long at 7pm and we were seated about 30mns later. Served with a generous portion of bread. Then we ordered baby back ribs and chicken shish kabob. Both were awesome. Service was good. Prices was not expensive but wouldnt say theyre cheap either. I guess you pay to be in the area... read more

I found this amazingly wonderful restaurant online years ago as my husband loves lamb and wanted some on a business trip to Ft Lauderdale. At our very first visit - where we loved the smells that greeted us as well as the festive ambiance. We sat at the bar as it was quite busy - we were welcomed warmly by... More

This restaurant was right across the street from where we were staying and had very good ratings on tripadvisor. It was early for lunch and already the restaurant was filling up. Later I learned from some that worked at the hotel, that they always got take out because it was so busy. The service was great, very accommodating and the... More

Was running errands in the area with a friend and decided to go here for lunch. We ordered one octopus portion as appetizer. Grilled to perfection served marinaded with lemon juice and oregano and other spices, it was so good that we had to order a second as we both were left wanting for more of such a delicacy. For...

Been a patron for few years and never disappointed. The smelts are crisp and tasty, the signature lamb chops always great as all the other meat (love the filet kebab!). The gyro plate is plentiful but lacks of seasoning and a bit dry (I suppose it's not home-made), the baklava cheesecake and a cappuccino are the perfect ending. The testosterone... More

June in Ft Lauderdale and lines outside waiting to get in. No reservations taken but well worth it. They run a nicely managed restaurant with good service and good food. Portions are large and prepared very well. The shrimp appetizer is a must. I had grouper grilled for entree which was delicious while my wife had grilled lamb chops which... More

We eat here every time we are in town. The staff is on it. The food delish. While there are other Greek options in town this is consistently the best food. Got the gyro platter and Greek salad and it was perfect.

We came to visit the place due to recommendations, and taste was average, staff does not go the extra mile, they wanted all their customers to valet parking, and they have no Wi-Fi. If this place is one of the top restaurants in the area, I am really worried about their gastromomy.

easily the best Greek food I've eaten outside of Greece. a treat. family owned and it shows in the food. we split some meze and had a great salad, spinach pie, saganaki (fried cheese), gyros and finished with a galaktoboureko. next time we'll get the whole fish and octopus.
