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

Arrived quite late by SA standards as another restaurant had already closed its kitchen but Only just managed to get a table at this restaurant & it was buzzing. Atmosphere & service was great plus the food was very good. Like the fact that you can go to the 'wine cellar' and opt for the wine that... read more

This was one of the best experiences we have had in a restaurant. The food and the service was really something to write home about and I would recommend anyone to go try it out

I was so excited to eat Greek food as there were not so many Greek restos in South Africa especially in Durban where I live. I was disappointed to see pizzas and other seafood dishes which weren't Greek at all. There were few Greek options. I had the impression it is a specialty resto based on the name. Service was...

The partner "George " is a great host. Our food was very good and close to any Greek food experienced. What will make this place memorable is our conversation with George and staff. Once inside the atmosphere feels better than it looks from the parking lot looking in. It was reasonably priced and worth a visit.

Not great. We went here really hungry. The service was a bit too in your face for our liking. And the food was not amazing, pizza was quite doughy, and fish was just ok.

We met George the owner who took a lot of time to show us how he cooked and gave us some of the secrets too. The food was really excellent and not just just your run of the mill options either, a very pleasant change from the same old! George then gave us a specialist pastry to try and treated... More

Our meal was plentiful but not very tasty. The owner is Greek Cypriot and is friendly but the food is not very Greek! Disappointing if you want to have Greek food.

We came across the restaurant the first night we arrived in JBay and it turned out really good! The owner (or manager?) is very friendly and we enjoyed our dinner both times there (and will continue to go!) Haven't been to the highest rated restaurants Kitchen Window or InFood Blue yet, but the Greek is definitely the best restaurant we've... More

A visit to The Greek in Jeffreys bay is always a pleasant experience. George brags that his prawns are the best in town. Well looking at the attached photo, these were the best prawns in town....until George and his crew dish up the next plate of prawns. We had the platter for two with a Focaccia flat bread. The meal... More

We stopped on our way on the garden route at the Greek Restaurant , we both had some fresh seefood ( I had the catch of the day) . The ambience was cosy, the atmosphere was easy-going and the food was sensational!
