Ate here for dinner on Friday night and we were the only customers. This was our first time eating here, so I'm not sure if it's always like that or not. It definitely was not a reassuring sign. I ordered the lasagna which came with a tossed salad ($12). The salad was ordinary and they served it with homemade dressing... More

We came here about a year ago and liked it a lot. This time however, we kept wondering what Robert Irvine (Food Network's Restaurant Impossible) would do with this place. Things that will keep me from returning: 1/2 of this place is a loud bar and the other 1/2 is supposed to be a quiet Greek restaurant. There is nice... More

Very good Greek food. They have a reasonably priced menu, daily specials and awesome deserts. Never been disappointed.

The restaurant is dimly lit and tables are crowded together. You should know that it is "seat yourself", otherwise you may stand around waiting for a hostess, like we did. Our server was very attentive and friendly. My half roast lemon chicken and my friend's souvlaki was on the dry side and the potatoes were two small, oily slices. While... More

I have heard that the other dishes are very good but the Spanakopita is the best I've had anywhere and I rarely get... More

The greek potatoes had no skin on them and were very oily. The fish tasted unseasoned except for some light rosemary or light spice. The pork was ok but the rice... More

The Trivos family from Nova Scotia runs this Greek flavored restaurant. We are locals and regulars. Our favorite is the grouper (usually on the specials menu).
