“Fabulous Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

This restaurant has very good food and lots of it. The appetizers were delicious and I was full after sampling 3 different ones. The hummus is fresh and creamy. The salad was very fresh and tasty. The Moussaka was so yummy and it also came with potatos with a lemon butter sauce and fresh sauteed broccoli and red pepper strips. The gyro plates were huge and the others with me who got this all went home with at least half of their meal! My husband got the chicken caprese and we shared this as and the Moussaka and went home with part of each. The only drawback was that the service seemed a little slow, however, the waitress was very polite and friendly. We will definitely be back when we visit Colorado Springs again!

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Four of us decided to try this restaurant and none of us enjoyed it. The wine selection was below average. My drink tasted terrible. Our dinners were below average as well; like chewing cardboard. We were very disappointed and won't be back.

“Great place - food, service and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Their gyros were very good - especially the cucumber/sour cream or yogurt sauce on them. The service was very good and the atmosphere of the restaurant, attractive and appropriate.

“a delightful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

A Greek feast and a real treat. The portions are generous which allowed for sharing. A favorite appetizer was Tyrokefteri, it came in a platter of four assorted dips with pita that was excellent. The baklava cheesecake was a good finish to the meal and a unique dessert. Would recommend this restaurant and wish it were possible to clone it for my hometown!

“Kids Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Great atmosphere with the employees dancing and clapping as if in Greece - and the flame throwing is exciting. Food is excellent and fairly well priced.
