Easy way to eat well

Great, relaxed atmosphere with really good food. It's great to have a place where you can drop in on the way home from shopping or just when you don't want to cook. It's so convenient on Maine Street in Brunswick.

Definitely one of Maine's best. Reserve in advance. And the night we were there they were almost out of desserts but what they did offer us was magnificent. We had baklava and an order of biscotti that was served with a delicious sweet Italian wine to dip and sip.

We ate here on Saturday night for a friend's birthday dinner, based on the reviews here. We don't exactly regret our choice, but we all decided we probably wouldn't go back. The decor is a little wanting - tacky ceramic figurines in the window, bright light over our table, etc. When we asked if the light could be dimmed a... More

The food here can be stellar, and they finally have a wait staff that isn't syrupy sweet and annoying, BUT ... on more than one occasion we've come at 7:00pm during the weekend only to find out that they are already out of a half dozen menu items, including entrees. To make matters worse, the kitchen staff can be very... More

Brunswick is a great place to spend the night when traveling for business in Maine. There are wonderful restaurants to chose from. This one in particular is my favorite so far. The menu options change, the meal can be light or heavy and the Greek wine selection is great. I often sit at the bar and find the waitresses to... More

Everything here is delicious, especially the lamb dishes -- make a reservation because it is small but charming.

On the last Saturday of September, restaurants near the shore teemed with busloads hungry for lobsters, so we headed into town and found a parking spot in front of the Trattoria...AND there was an unreserved table. The meal was superb from lamb's neck to duck's breast with figs. Red and white Greek wines were tasty and distinctly flavored. The gnocchi,... More

First a caveat, I'm not a huge Greek food fan. That being said, I was not impressed with the food here. Service was great, just didn't like the taste of the food. They do make an incredible flavored martini. One man's humble opinion.

The special prix fixe of Sunday made our day (and evening) prior to Maine State Theatre. My pan-fried skate (an exotic fish that was cooked delightfully with rich flavors, unpretentiously) and the friendly “I’m almost like your Mamma” waitress who was personable but not intrusive, made this a beautiful meal in a cozy, honest environment. Nothing flashy, and I could... More

We had been to this restaurant before and loved it it is very small so we made a reservation for 7:30 3 days before. We arrived at 7:30 and had to wait 30 minutes for a table we were told the specials I ordered one of the specials then I was informed that two of the specials were no longer... More
