We visited the restaurant with friends from Maricopa, Arizona and Chester, New York. The ambiance is cozy with distinctive elegant decor typical of Mykonos Island.

Excellent food & service. It's a bit expensive but the food is more than worth it. We went for our anniversary a few years ago & go back every year on it now...as well as other times. Great place!

What a nice restaurant to enjoy lunch on a midday. Very tasteful decor with tables and booths, including blue and white tiles and mosaics and gorgeous photos of Greek islands.

This is authentic Greek food at its best! Everything and I mean everything is flavorful and delicious. You should go planning to share that way you get to taste more of the menu. The octopus is awesome, the flatbread and dipping sauces are amazing. The lamb chops are superb!!! The place doesn't look like much driving up to the place... More

Stopped in for lunch with a co-worker. We noticed it while driving on B'way one day. So glad we checked it out. The menu had a lot of interesting choices. We were both very happy with our orders. We had the Spanakopita appetizer. I had the veggie wrap and fries (not very Greek, I know) and it was very good.... More

Excellent Greek food, always fresh. The cocktails are excellent. This place has nothing to envy to any of the NYC restaurants. The ambience is great. The desserts are very, very good.
