Fresh food and everything made from scratch. Try the chef's specialties!

Delicious Greek food made by scratch. The octopus dish was great! We are coming back in a couple of weeks to bring more friends AND buy the food in the deli. This time we did not buy anything at the deli, since we had to drive to pick up our pup. The deli dishes looked great. We want to buy... read more

This restaurant has a wonderful decor with the walls decorated with scenes of Greece. Not only is the place cute, the food is great. They have all sorts of specials. We love the lamb shank, the fish specials, the spanakopita. The Hummus is wonderful. We have the flamed Saganaki almost every time we go for dinner and I swear, I... More

Well worth the ride from tucson. We dined there last night and had a delicious dinner. From the appetizer treat of smoked turkey and corned beef,delicious dolmades,seared scallops and spinach and the split entree of seafish stew it was yummy and authentically Greek. The service was congenial and efficient.

My husband and I decided to stop for lunch. He had the greek burger which was cooked to perfection. It had great flavor. I had a small greek salad and their lemon soup. It was delicious. The staff were very friendly.

Authentic Greek experience from the food to the decor.....Felt like I was in Santorini...Best meal I have had in Tucson. Jimmy and his staff doted on every table. Just like the oldstyle, family owned restaurants of past eras where the owner comes to every table and visits with each patron. Painted walls and decor just beautiful.... temporary escape from the...

Worth going out of the way! We could only stop for lunch I'm sure dinner would be fabulous. Lunch is ordered at the deli counter, then go into the dining room and it is brought to you. Today they were having a deli tasting and had a very generous spread to taste from. They smoke their own meats and they... More

It's our third winter in Tucson.....and so happy to be only 3 miles from this hidden jewel! The food is authentic and tasty. Even their gyro meat is better than we have had anywhere. Our very favorite is the Scallop Special, fresh scallops flown in from the East Coast. Plus, you will love the staff! Check out this place. You... More

Wonderful and friendly service along with delicious meals! Clean and simple atmosphere. The waiter was very helpful in suggesting items off the menu. I had the Spanikipita which was excellent and my friends had the very large and tender shrimp over pasta which was very tasty. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. They also have a deli attached which... More

It's ironic really that the best food we've had in Tucson so far is not Mexican or Southwestern but Greek. We found the restaurant on Trip Advisor and were intrigued enough to give it a whirl. We were not disappointed. We had a later dinner and the place was not busy. Both the food and the service were excellent. We... More

Saw a review on trip advisor and drove way out of the way to go there with a party of 5 for lunch. It was delicious. Just great. Brent the owner was super personable.
