“Georgia the owner will treat you right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Wonderful soups - the mushroom is always a favorite - authentic greek food and great catering for the in home - wedding - funeral - dinner party. Design your own party menu or dine in at the restaurant - space for private parties - bar with wine dining room. Sit far from the door in the winter to avoid the draft - Greek food from a wonderful Greek family!

“Not easily impressed but this time I was”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

My daughter knew we liked Greek food so we decided to try this restaurant in Dinkytown on the U of Mn's campus. There are quite a few tables for outside dining but we chose inside. Our server was very prompt with orders, refills, seeing if our meal was ok and the check. I ordered the chicken breast with shittake mushrooms, real mash potatoes and spinach in a light sauce which was absolutely delicious. My husband and daughter enjoyed their gyros plate which came with fries. The complimentary bread with olive oil was quickly eaten as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

“Great service and even better food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

A nice casual cafe in "Dinky Town" with very friendly staff and good food. Nice place for a get together with friends or dining alone. Choose a private spot inside or sit outdoors along the sidewalk and do some people watching. The folks there work hard to make your visit memorable.

“Casual Greek and much more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

This is the place we'd regularly take guests too or have important-ish meetings when working at the University of Minnesota, near Dinkytown. The menu is inventive, the costs reasonable and the staff always accommodating.

“Great find!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Loved our dinner at this restaurant. My only regret is that I was not hungry enough to order more!

The greeting was very friendly, service quite good and a nice casual ambiance. For our entrees, we ordered the Pasta Bolognese, the Bouillabaisse, and the Summer Risotto -- all were excellent. The wine list was not huge, but enough to ensure everyone was happy. Prices were very fair for what was received. We definitely will return and recommend.
