Welcome to our Greek kitchen where we set the standard for Greek food in the northwest. Delicious seasoned and grilled souvlakis, gyros, fresh made mousaka, domathes and spanakopitas just to name a few. Sample light fare and a cold drink in our cozy lounge and listen to live jazz every Thursday night.Come to the healthier side of dining out and enjoy the delicious "Mediterranean Diet" the world's healthiest.

This was a great choice for a nice lunch, lived u to its positive reviews and also offers AAdvantage dining points! We had the feta and puff pastry appetizer, loved it! The gyros were hearty portions and seasoned perfectly. Would definitely return AND recommend. The wait staff was attentive and professional, overall an excellent dining choice for old town Bellingham.

I've enjoyed this restaurant for over 10 years. The souvlaki is great, the gyros are very good and I'm personally in love with the avgolemeno. They used to serve an appetizer platter for two in the bar that was a lot of fun for sharing with friends - I see its now on the dinner menu so I hope its... More

John the owner is by far the best cook they have if he is cooking. the other cook are also very good but you can tell when john is not cooking.... More

Walking distance from sister-in-laws work although free easy access parking is available, no rush dining, reasonable meal prices and ample food, fresh, finely seasoned, house salad dressing available for purchase and it was the best I've tasted on Greek salads. Hot food was hot and cold food was cold. Really, cannot say properly how much I enjoyed the dining experience.... More

The service is excellent and the food is fresh and affordable. The lemon soup is worth it and the souvlaki is tender and seasoned just right.

Perhaps a beginner's guide to basic Greek cuisine is the aesthetic they are going for. For my money, I'd rather it be intriguing than predictable. That being said, it's decent food, decently priced and I will likely go again since there are few other options.

We have been enjoying the food here for 20 years. Hubby loves the steak and potatoes. I love chicken on stick, gyros and the meatballs so much that I have trouble ordering! The kids love it too and we often bring home to go dishes.

Based on reviews, and seeking the best gyro in town, stopped by for noon solo lunch. The establishment is clean, was sparse of patrons, seated quickly and ordered a lamb gyro with Greek salad. The plate arrived quickly. The salad was crunchy with out flavor. The gyro was warm at best and regretably lacked flavor. The extra zatziki sauce requested... More
