The waitress was very nice and tried to help out our gluten free guest. We sampled most dishes on the menu, and found good, solid food, but very few exceptional dishes. The squid was good, octopus okay, meatballs fairly tasty, the melted cheese very salty. Fried appetizers were a little greasy, but also not bad. The artichoke moussaka was tasteless.The... More

The ambiance is nice , but not my type..You have people sitting in a close distance to you because the tables are very close to each other and you can listen to their conversations while eating and trying to enjoy the company of your lovely husband.

The service was still good, but not quite as good as before. I was a little concerned as neither the hostess or our waitress were Greek, and... More

Service was spot on, food was just as good as it was on the Greek Island we just left, which is why we sentimentally choose this place. Get a reservation, we lucked out on a slow night!

We have been a few times, and it's consistently great. Best lamb shank I've ever had! Decor is nice, service very attentive. Love it!

This was recommended to us by a friend and we are so happy we went. All our food was tasty and Antonis our waiter was very knowledgeable of the food (especially with my intolerances). Would visit again.
