This is a fun place to go if you enjoy loud music, dancing on tables, great food, great drink, and a belly dancer - that sums it about up. Throughout the evening, a lovely belly dancer entertains the audience, and might even give impromptu classes should you feel inclined to launch yourself into the business yourself. What belly dancing has... More

Other than having an awesome waiter, we really did not have a great experience at all. We made reservations via Open Table and arrived a little early at 6:15pm. They didn't have a record of our reservation nor did they give us credit for it (first time that's ever happened). It was down pouring out so the place was super... More

We sat outside this restaurant because it was such a nice evening and it was a good choice as it seemed rammed inside! However sitting outside does pose a risk of sitting near a smoker, which unfortunately we did! The food was very nice, we were given some pitta bread and hummus as an appetizer which was a nice touch.... More

We really enjoyed the atmosphere at this restaurant. The belly dancing and napkin throwing started at 8:00 (even tho the website said 7:00). It wasn't crowded at 6:30 when we arrived (Tuesday night). Our waiter was very friendly and helpful with menu items. The food was awesome! My husband and I had lamb, my son had the steak and lobster... More

I don't usually visit Orlando because it is so touristy. This is a typical restaurant made to service these tourists looking for a Greek restaurant experience. The music was WAY too loud, I cringed when people stood on the tables (how does the health dept not shut them down for that??), and I constantly wondered how much of the profit... More

Went here 7/5/14. Loads of napkin throwing,belly dancers, dancing on tables, and a lot going on. Is it a bar or a restaurant?. Overall I would give the food a 4 out of 5. The food was very tasty. The desert was not good. The desert tasted like shredded wheat with bananas and cool whip. The 4 people in my... More

Great Greek cuisine! Very entertaining atmosphere and friendly people! My only (minor) complaint is this: the music is very loud. If u want to have a quiet, sit down, family meal, this is not the place. Other than that, this is a very cool place to have dinner!!!

Everything was good except that the grouper was awfully dry. A great sauce made up for this but the price/value relationship could have been better. Service was outstanding.

This is not a place for a quiet dinner. The music is loud and the atmosphere is full of energy. We had some appetizers and main courses, all of it very good. The lamb ribs and grouper were highlights.
