My girlfriend and I go here to eat all the time, but not so much that its not special every time we go. The service is great, food is authentic and tasty and the setting and ambience is special. This place has our favorite dessert and I remember asking the management where they get it from and all he would... More

We always look forward to our dining experience at this authentic Greek restaurant. We love to sit outside and enjoy the romantic setting. The food and service is outstanding! Love to bring our friends and know we will leave happy and satisfied!

I took my husband last night for a belated Father's Day dinner. As always, the food was absolutely delicious. We ordered the Saganaki and the Pita/Hummus/Calamari platter as appetizers. Everything was hot, fresh, and delicious! Be sure to order the Red Wine Sangria. I am not a big drinker, but look forward to at least two glasses of the Sangria... More

If you love Greek food, check out this place. The service is very attentive and the dishes awesome. I love Moussaka and they prepare it very tasty. I don't usually care for squid but the appetizer I had was a 'melt in your mouth' experience.

Once again I had a really good experience at this restaurant. We had the spicy feta appetizer which was hot, but tasty. We had the grilled salmon and the moussaka. Everything was well prepared and attractively served. The Cambas red went well with the meal.

We waited for our table even though we had a reservation. It wasn't too long though, under 10 minutes. Our first impressions were great. This place has a lovely atmosphere and was a lot nicer than either of us were expecting. We didn't realize how loud it was until we were seated. The table next to us was out of... More

This was the place to be to celebrate the New Year. It was warm and exciting. The place was alive with music, belly dancer and server all in the spirit of the holiday. The 4 course pre-fix meal had several fabulous options. It was hard to chose. Best meal I have had in a long time in the City of... More

Fun evening, good food, belly dancer and a lively crowd. We've been here before and the food is always good. For New Years, they had a special menu, $55 per person....4 courses. Good value for the money, although note wine was extra. We had a great time!

My In-Laws live in Raleigh, and we make it a point to go to this restaurant any time we visit them! The food is great, the service is outstanding, and the atmosphere is comfortable. I don't normally recommend restaurants, but this one's good enough to change my mind. You won't be disappointed!

We had a lovely time - the food and service were good. Each time we go - they deliver. I have yet to have a bad experience with this restaurant. We are foodies and can be picky about how food is prepared.
