“Fun, good Greek food, but service is mediocre.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

One of the best Greek restaurants in Tampa. The food is delicious and fresh. They load your plate and value the is pretty good. There is always live music during dinner which is a nice touch, although sometimes it gets too loud. The staff dances and throw napkins and break plates which are Greek traditions. There is even a belly dancer on weeknights. Undortunately, the service is not the best. Usually the hostesses are the worst. The waiters and waitresses are a little better. Everyone in the staff is fit and good looking so I don't know if it's a complex that they have, but it takes away from the experience. It's a shame too. By the way, they always have 2for1 sangria for dinner.

“Lose the napkins.....please!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

I loved the food here. Had Gyro's and Greek beer and I was truly stuffed when I left. I found the Greek style dancing by the wait staff amusing until they started tossing the napkins. Old napkins dangling over my table and from the walls didn't make a positive impression.

“Excellent Greek food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We've been here 5 or 6 times in the last 5 years. We've always had excellent food. Our last visit, there was an apparent communication issue between the waitstaff. Consequently we had about a 10 minute wait before anybody waited on us. The waitress was very apologetic almost to the point of being overbearing. This was the only problem we have ever had and as usual the food was delicious.

“Tampa tries Greek”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

The food and service is great, but they're trying too hard with throwing the napkins in the air.

We came to Tampa not knowing any place to go and stumbled on this place. The thing is Greek food is so good it's hard to not like it, and we did like it- but I wouldn't try impressing anyone here unless they think Bennie Hannna's is real Japanese. The place has charm, and it's an evening of waiters dancing, but it would have been better with just live music.

After 48 hours in Tampa this place is the best food we've eaten- but Tampa doesn't set the bar real high.
