This is a great place to eat. Love their appetizers and their stuffed green peppers are the greatest. The menu has a good mix of Greek and American items to choose from.

This place has closed as of this week. Cannot write a further review. Should be a way of writing less than 100 characters.

I ate at this restaurant for the first time last week and found the food to be very good, though it isn't exactly what I'd call authentic Greek cuisine. For example, there are no dishes with eggplant (which I was told doesn't bode well with locals) and one of the pasta dishes had poblano peppers in it. That said, the... More

I've eaten here several times and it's always been good. My comparison is old-school New Jersey Greek diners, so don't be hating! We had a business meeting there this week, and about 9 of us were in attendance. The server was patient and efficient. Someone ordered the hummus with pita "chips", and it was the best hummus I've ever had... More

We celebrated a wedding ann. There. The staff was wonderful, immediate seating, friendly and helpful service and knowledgable info. Shared about the dishes. The appetizer tray could have fed 2 just by itself, with a sampling of almost everything Greek. All the 5 various meals were hot, large, tasty and prepared to perfection. The surf and turf, along with the... More

We traveled trough Greek and his Islands for many years, so we can compare what we eat. The Gyros we get was old, dry and warmed up - the best this evening was our wine. Yeah - it was not expensive, but it was not worth the 12 bucks.

We don't have a Greek restaurant in our home town anymore, so when we travel I search them out. The menu was great and we shared a large salad and a plate of different choices or a sampler plate. The waiter was extremely nice and the environment was very conducive to talking. I will definitely go there again

We both enjoyed the food and ambiance, We like the things on the menu having eaten at Greek restaurants from coast to coast. There is however, one exception and that is we learned that the Mousaka has no eggplant in it which I believe to be traditional because the people of Farmington do not seem to like Eggplant. The location... More

My husband and I enjoy the atmosphere and yummy food not overcrowded and mediocre like the majority of restaurants in Farmington. I would recommend the Feta Burger or the filet. The value is awesome as well.
