“An awesome greek lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Been there following a friend's advice. Not being disappointed at all. Awesome meal with tasty and well prepared dishes. Greek specialities in the center of Astoria. Very good atmosphere, reasonable prices. Definitely a place to return to. Highly recommended.

“Good food, long wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I liked food very much, although I was so hungry that I could have eaten anything. Greek salad was great and grilled octopus delicious. at the end you get very tasty desert on the house.

we had to wait for almost 2 hours to get a table. the service was fast and service was great. Highly recommended.

“Have patience..... Well Worth The Wait!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Yes, you do have to stand around and wait for a table, but once seated, you will be SO glad you did! ...And be kind to the hostess, Violeta, as she has to deal with being harassed by endless diners who are waiting impatiently and asking "how much longer???"
This place never disappoints- serving super fresh seafood cooked with a Greek flair as well as the other Greek specialties that are on the menu. The octopus is some of the best you'll have in all of NYC, the Feta is delicious and authentic as is the Horta.
Sadly, there is no coffee after your meal... But you will be served an outstanding Galatoboureko that is a fine finish to your meal.

“A must! Fresh seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Yes, there is a long waiting line - sometimes an hour, however, the wait is worth it. Fresh seafood and reasonable prices. Add your name and phone number to the wait list and go to the bar (1/2 block away) for a drink and walk around and explore Astoria a little.

“Fresh Seafood reasonably priced!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Consistently fresh seafood expertly prepared in the traditional Mediterranean kitchen. Many Greek appetizers to choose from. Reasonably priced for seafood. Very loud because of small dining area. Save room for complimentary Greek desert.
