I recently ate here, and it was nothing short of GREAT. Authentic, great atmosphere right on the beach, and very moderately-priced.

Great atmosphere!

Went here because we both hadn't eaten Greek dood for a while. Nice atmosphere, and after a few minutes George, the owner, came to make us feel home, and when we said we were both almost doctors he would even call us 'Dottore' from that point on! Loved the food, the Souvlaki was very nice... read more

Having lived in Cyprus for numerous years we know almost all there is to know about Greek food. The meal we were served here was terrible. My Halloumi starter was tepid,watery & under cooked. Hubby's black mushrooms just warmed through with chopped RAW garlic on top. Our main course of grilled prawns were tasteless (they advertise them as the best... More

This is a one of a kind restaurant, where the personal assistance by the owner, George makes each and every single patron feel like a celebrity !! The amazing service to all....

A regular stop on our annual trip to JBay and as usual we were not disappointed. The greeting you get from the owner sets the tone. Service was good and professional. The food, we stick with meze, was well cooked and extremely tasty. There is enough variety to please any palate.

We had lunch and dinner at The Greek on two different occasions. The service was great and the food was fantastic. It is a great venue too. The lamb chops were to die for.

We had dinner here: a sea fruit platter for two. Everything on the plate was overcooked, it was terrible. The octopus was that tough, you couldn't eat it (the owner said that it was because of the type of octopus that lives here in the sea, but they really don't know how to prepare it). There is a sign in... More

We had lunch at The Greek on two different occations. We thoroughly enjoyed both meals! During the first visit we had pizza: A+ for their pizza! The service was friendly and efficient. The second time we had the mezze platter for four. This was good value for money. Baklava for desert is always a winner! The charming owner should maybe... More
