My friend and I went here for dinner, and wow, we had a wonderful time! We ordered a spanakopita, beef kabob platter (with rice, soup and salad) and baklava for dessert. Everything was delicious! Their house wine was also decent, and for only $2.25, they gave me a full glass. Service was friendly and efficient. The place was cozy, and... More

This place was found by sheer luck while me and my family were roaming around trying to find somewhere to eat. As someone who is part Greek i do often struggle to want to go to a Greek restaurant/cafe as my standards are set far to high for obvious reasons but this place drew me in because it served a...

Try Alexi's on 5th Avenue in San Diego. The menu is inexpensive and has most of the Greek delights you would find in a Taberna in Greece.

The Greek Dinner Special included a small bowl of good split pea soup. Then came a Greek salad followed by gyros of lamb which was dry, souvlaki of chicken, spanokopita with taziki. This would have been enough however it also came with rice, chips & pita! I left these. This Cafe is like a little roadside cafe in Greece with... More

The small restaurant was excellent. The server was attentive to our needs and the food was good. We enjoyed the fish and chips, a filo/spinach/cheese dish and a chicken gyro. All meals came with lots of extras. They were used to small children and we would go back.
