Clean and tasty

Ate here for a late lunch on Sunday. Food was good as was the service. Prices seemed fair. Place was clean. I've visited the Ybor location before. This was my first stop here.

Try the sangria. Real Gyro lamb and beef great. Can not beat the wraps. I have been here several times always great. It's the real deal.

This is a restaurant/club if you go at night on the weekend. Very popular with college students. The food is good with the exception of the Greek Salad, and just my opinion because their dressing is a raspberry dressing and I don't like it. It's just too sweet for me. But other Greek dishes are very good.

Love love this place. I was little taken back when I visited them with my family for an early mothers day dinner. Either way they definitely redeemed themselves when I decided to give them another chance. I met my girlfriends there on a Friday night and we had a great time. Our waitress was very friendly and even let us... More

Food was pretty good - probably not the best Greek food I've ever had. Prices were fair for the serving size. Service was decent and the dancing was pretty cool.

Went out to dinner here on 4th of July with 3 guests and never got service upstairs. When another table was seated next to us we asked that server to service our table and she said we had to go downstairs to see the hostess about that. We never saw anyone come to our table so we walked out and... More

Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. This post appeared on our restaurant located in Tampa on Bruce B Downs Blvd in the New Tampa area. However, you reference being upstairs. We do not have an upstairs in that location. I suspect you were dining in downtown St Petersburg or possibly Ybor City - these are the... More

Hubby & I visited here. They have great seating and very spacious. They bring out warm bread with a cheese/ yoghurt type dip. I got the gyro platter which was very good - salad, pita and gyro meat. Husband had fish sandwich which he liked. Fries were ok. Everything looked good Nd tasted good. Server was nice. They give you... More

This place is awesome! Third time here and will be back many more. Food here has been delicious every single time. The Acropolis salad is HUGE and super yummy. The eggplant app and new cheese feta dip are delicious. Lots of music, smashing plates and dancing. When you hear the music, it's "oh pah" time and the napkins start flying!... More
