“Presentation and taste were great.”

First time in Greek restaurant in Brussels.
Do order their shrimps with goat cheese sauce ( Scampis au chavre chaud) + eggplant with feta cheese and Greek french fries. Bon Apetit.

“Our neighborhood joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

With family living practically next door, this is a great and convenient place. Very nice owners, always accommodating. Good food, sometimes a touch too greasy but nice updated Greek classics and some fun less usual finds. Comfortable and casual.

“Nice and modern little Greek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

Small restaurant, close to Chatelain and the Rue des Pages (famous restaurant district in Brussels), it is trendy little Greek restaurant. Very decent food, for a very reasonable price. Nice place to have a meal between friends.

“Different Greek”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

(English is not my native language, sorry)

Mainly tapas (small portions), allowing for a mix of various dishes. The food is good, not excellent. Cannot discuss authenticity....

Prices are very reasonable, providing good value.

Wines (except for house wines) are fairly expensive.

Good service. Nice atmosphere, although noisy.

Better for an evening with friends than a romantic evening.

“Not so Greek”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2010

Since it's hard to find a decent greek restaurant in Brussels, I'd say that in comparison to others it's ok..Still, they didn't manage to stick to the old traditional greek recipes, rather they mixed them all up with a belgian flair. For example, the "kopanisti" which is supposed to be a cold hors d'œuvre -spicy feta cheese dip- was served hot, which had a really dry flavor. As for the decor, while many might find it "hip and trendy" , I think its rather out-dated and kitsch.
As for the prices, rather ok, you can get a main dish with 8-9 eu(a souvlaki costs around 3 eu). Last but not least, it would be a serious omission not to say that the owner of the restaurant was very polite and the service was very good.
