Great Greek food in New Tampa

Great place to enjoy some very good Greek food. So far we've tried the gyro wraps, octopus appetizer, dolmades appetizer, and baklava - and they were all delicious! We will definitely be going back to this restaurant.

Just happened across this gem! Outside dining area is very nice. The food is fabulous had the Rhodes Chicken...lemony wine sauce with artichoke, olives and feta.....then came the fun part....the Greek music got a little louder...then the waitstaff Greek danced through the resteraunts while the patrons tossed cocktail napkins into the air... Excellent Greek wine selection. LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!

Food was just OK. Service was not bad. Probably will not go back. The Greek dressing was a pinkish color and had an almost sweet taste????A real overall disappointment.

The service, food and ambience were solidly above average. We settled into a comfortable booth in the bar area and ordered Gyros. I would have liked a little more sauce but my friend pronounced his chicken gyro to be perfect. I would gladly revisit this restaurant.
