“Great food - many choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Our group had a variety of orders - Baked Shrimp, Scallops, Lamb Kabobs, Salmon, Chicken and Pasta along with some appetizers. The seafood was fabulously fresh and tasty which is always a good sign!. Appetizers were also freshly made and good starters. Everyone had ample portions and with the appetizers - there were several take home portions. The side choices are ample too. The menu choices are extensive.

The waitress was brand new - but got help from the boss immediately when she wasn't able to answer a menu questions.

We went on a recent Thursday and it was very crowded around 5- 7 pm, but thinned out by 8. There is a pretty good sized parking lot but in a pinch, you can park at the shopping center across the street.

Only con is that it does get quite noisy and it can be hard to hear conversations, depending on where you are seated.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The food here is really good. Don't miss their pasta salad. Comes with most sandwich orders. If you like feta cheese, you will love this. The service has always been top shelf. Only draw back: the acoustics are terrible. Sometimes difficult to carry on a conversation.

“Excellent food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Service is wonderful - fast and friendly. Huge selection and prices were reasonable. Our party of four had the moussaka, shrimp dish, and steak - all cooked perfectly and delicious. Drinks were good sized. Did not have dessert. Can't wait to return.

“Greek?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

This would be kind of a spot for the traveler as its not really near any hotel group or attraction but it is easy to find, busy but bigger than it looks so a wait is unusual. The sense is warm, comfortable, spread out well but can be a bit noisy at times so an intimate spot it is not. But the negatives end there. When you are seated and they drop off the "book" while offering a beverage from their rather extensive list of wines by the glass, draft beers and drink specials, which by Worcester standards are moderatly priced! The "book" is the menu, extensive everything from pizzas to seafood to pastas to greek standards and specialties, very difficult to select, even from the appetizer offerings--love the deep fried feta cubes!!! Literally there is something for everyone. Even more amazing everything is fresh, portions are huge, service is well trained, efficient and friendly and the food is terrific, everything we've tried has brought a smile, not an easy feat when you consider the number of offerings. But please get a doggy bag for the second half of your meal and save room for any of the amazing dessert offerings!!!
Split one if you must but don't pass them up. Overall a very satisfying dining experience from what appears to be just an ordinary spot.
