Finally authentic Greek food! Cool atmosphere, think blue/white, lots of water and plants. You guys have got to go on Friday or Saturday night for the Belly Dancing. It is wild! Fresh food, just like jaja used to make! The Spanikopita/Spinach Pie is to die as are the Gyro platters. We have tried every sampler and they are all delicious... More

I'm rating a little high 'cause I can't think of another good Greek restaurant in Jacksonville. The food is good and prepared with care and delivered in large portions. The pricing is a little high.

While travelling through Jacksonville, we found this spot within easy walking distance. We enjoyed the outdoor seating just after sunset and made our choices. We ordered and shared three appetizers - $5 humus, $5 spinach rice, $7 spanakopita (spinach pie) AND an original $10 Greek salad. While we did our very best, the two of us could not finish all...

SERVICE: Fantastic! Waiter was very attentive, patient, and personable. ATMOSPHERE: For a Tuesday night at 6pm, we were one of 3 tables in the large dining area. Extremely happy that I could not smell the smoke from the hookah lounge, which is separate from the dining area. Belly dancer started working the tables around 7:30. My girlfriend and I were...

Went for a birthday. Atmosphere was fun but the food left something to be desired, the drinks were way to strong to the point you would think it's a college bar.. but the cost would make you think otherwise..not worth the cost, while the atmosphere and staff were great likely won't return

Had dinner and watched the world cup game...the food was good and the nice thing the bar wasn't full of drunks screaming. Looks like we found a new place to go for game days

Lunch is large portions and reasonable. Good food quality. Slow to terrible service. I perfer to sit outside due to the "dark & dingy" feel inside. Happy hour has half priced app's and hookahs.

"dogs get bigger bones for less" and I will tell you why in a minute, but first, first things first. Last month,I visited this place as first time and ordered a hookah with double-apple flavor. the flavor was so weak that I think it was half apple and not double. My waiter from New york who spoke Spanish told me... More
