This Place Can't Be Beat

The food is perfection and it is why I gave it a top rating. The beef shish-ka-bob was very tender and tasty and not a hint of MSG (always on the look-out). I have been here many times and never had a plate that was less than delicious. The service is excellent despite the fact that tables are... read more

We had never been to this restaurant before, we both want to try something new. It was an impressive dinner. What we could highly recommend were "octopus", "lamb chop".Seafood dishes were also great .Greek salad was of good quality. It was crowded, but the staff was good at managing the queue. So we had to wait for only 10 min.,... More

Lamp chops, grouper, veal chop, whatever...its all very good here. Would not go on the weekends....only during the week to avoid the long lines and congested atmosphere. The place is noisy but will travel here from a distance just to enjoy the food which makes up for the lousy atmosphere. Service is spotty. Again, you are going here for very... More

Drinks, food and service were all excellent! We started with the grilled octopus, baked shrimp and fried zucchini. Yum! A small greek salad was shared by three of us. Our main meals were comprised of steak, scallops and grouper. Everyone was very pleased! You can't leave without trying the baklava. We ordered 1 baklava and 1 cheesecake baklava... a 2nd... More

Great food! Great staff. Shout out to Peter. Wonderful evening. Two bottles of wine three appetizers and four delicious dinner's made for an exceptional evening! The whole yellow tail snapper and lamb chops were just wonderful. Grilled octopus appetizer was amazing! We never felt rushed enjoyed the evening... Would definitely recommend this for a special night!

While the octopus appetizer was well-proportioned and tasted great, the Patates Ladoregano were burnt and dry and overpriced: Just 1 potato cut into 4 quarters. We had ordered the Melitzanosalata, but what arrived was another potato appetizer (maybe the Scordalia). When we asked what happened to the Eggplant, the waiter brusquely said he had brought it already. The Moussaka was... More

It is a lovely, comfortable environment in which to have a meal. The service was efficient and quick, and the prices reasonable. The vegetable soup was excellent. The lamb chops were the best that we have ever had and if you like lamb this is the dish I recommend. I look forward to another opportunity to come back.

We were told by a friend to check this place out and are so glad we did. It was really busy, but the staff, oh so efficient. The staff seems to cooperate so well together. We started with the wings....we love wings, but these were better than any I have EVER tasted. They were meaty, and chargrilled, and coated with... More
