“nice but not special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

dinner on a tuesday night. only one couple dining when we entered but 3 more parties showed up later. the decor is nice and very greek. tiered tables gives nice views of other patrons. hostess/server was not enthusiastic nor engaged, service was good but she did not appear to enjoy her job. appetizers were limited, mostly olives, we ordered the charbroiled octopus and the fried calimari. water was provided right away but glasses were cheap cafeteria style. garlic bread is also provided but slightly burnt. i was looking for lamb souvlaki but only chicken and pork. the only lamb was lamb chops which i ordered. the best dish was the charbroiled octopus, one large tenticle which was very tender and smoothered in onions and cucumber. the lamb chops were slightly dry and not tender, also came with rice, greek salad and potatoes. no pita bread was provided. fried calimari was oily and not recommended. portions were large. i may revisit because of the decor and octopus but would order different main course. this restaurant could be very good with a little effort on menu selection and a more enthusiastic server.

“Acceptable when you are hungry”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

The food was not cookies fresh, except the Greek salad. The pita gyro was ok,even though it had to much tzatziki. The rice and potatoes was not good at all. Did not dare to try potatoes, it looked like it was cooked a few days ago and the rice had some weird after taste.
This place works if you are hungry!

“Wonderful Greek!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Had a late dinner with family. This was a wonderful find. Authentic Greek atmosphere. Attentive waitstaff. Menu has all the usual Greek items you would hope to find. We had domaldes which were wonderful. The kids had souvlaki. The Greek potatoes and salad were fresh and the perfect accompaniment. Would highly recommend. Close to the Delta and other big hotels.

“Massive portions, weak service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Near a great place to stay (the hotel called l'Appartement), their portions are huge and all was fairly good but we had to wait a lot, wave, call ... Prices were reasonable. There were zucchinis in the moussaka which doesn't seem to be the original recipe but the result was good.
