“Great Restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Make sure you call for a reservation because this place is small and always packed. Tried to walk in one night and basically got laughed at (but it was our mistake). Made a reservation for two nights ahead and 9:30 was all they had. Group of 10 and had a good time. Shared the 5 dip platter: (taramasalata (salted fish roe), tzatziki, hummus, melitzanosalata (eggplant), htipiti (feta and spicy peppers)...it was really good!! Spinach, Artichoke, Feta & Mozzarella Dip was tasty as was the Flaming OPA! Parmesan Reggiano. Damn delicious! I had the Osso Bucco with Spaghetti which was very good. My girlfriend had the Mahi-Mahi Kebobs which she enjoyed too. Also ordered was the Greek Salad (served with bowtie paste?) looked amazing though and my friend said it was great. Everything was great. Only complaint was some people were left waiting while others were almost done. BUT this place is small and there were 2 other 10 tops at the same time.
Would definitely go back....and would definitely make a reservation.
Located conveniently in D-Mall.

“Possibly the best in Boracay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Great food, ate here several times in a 5 day trip. Only problem can be getting a table, it's a good idea to make a reservation, it's very popular and rightly so!

“Opa! Don't burn your eyebrows.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Must try the paidakia excellent value for money ribs. Food was good and tasty and servings were large. The restaurant is very small and seating is very close to other people sitting next to you. Recommended you book before you go. Unfortunately there are no greek wines on the menu, which is disappointing for a Greek restaurant.

“Ah, this takes me back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We came from the main road entrance to D Mall. At the ferris wheel turn left and go straight ahead, enter a narrower alley and you’ve found it. It’s a hole in the wall reminiscent of our backpacking days in Greece. It was about 8.30pm on a Sunday night in January and the place was packed but they quickly squeezed us in. All of the waiting staff were cheerful. After a short wait the service was quick and efficient. We had three lamb yiros, very tasty, and they put the honey mustard on the side thankfully! Once we saw the flaming cheese we couldn’t resist ordering it – and taking a photo and joining in the noise when the flame is lit. We soaked it in lemon juice and mopped up the juices with pita bread. The Greek Salad had capers, which we couldn’t remember experiencing before, but it was delicious and the dressing with the addition of the tomato juices was tangy and we mopped that up with bread as well. We were in an out within an hour, well fed and the kids were as happy as we were. The bill was about P1850 (including two soft drinks, a beer and a gin and tonic). If you think it’s too expensive, there are other alternatives so don’t mark it down for that. And I can’t vouch for the more substantial food but what we saw coming out of the kitchen looked appetizing. When we return to Boracay next, we will be glad to eat here again.
