$45 (with tax, tip) for 2 lunch appetizers. The octopus was oily, smothered in onions, thankfully the pita bread helped me soak it all up. The pikilia was 4 appetizers together, all tasting the same, although I've never had such runny watery tzitziki. The service was quick and didn't get in the way.

The food and service were excellent which is what I expect from this restaurant. We had three different appetizers and each one was delicious.

We came to enjoy Jersey Shore with our friends. After spending a day on a beach and playing in the crazy waves, we needed to satisfy our hunger. There were 7 of us, 4 kids. We sent my hubby first to make reservations, and by the time we came to restaurant in 20 min, he was sitting down, and appetizers... More

Not to thrilled with the food or servers here. Tried a few times but still not happy. Wish it was better because the area needs it. I'd skip this place

My boyfriend and I love this place to eat and come all year round. The portions are large, the salads are so fresh, the staff is courteous. On a summer day eat outside but inside is open all year. The prices are reasonable and the food is great. The place is also very clean.

sandwiches, salads, crackle really good. best tables outside facing beach, inside in front section, not in the rear room or the side street, unless you don't want to wait for a table. we like it a lot.
