“Excellent value in a small urban Greek cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

When I'm in San Diego, I like to stop at Alexi's for a great Greek meal. The food is top notch, the service friendly. All plates come with homemade soup and a tasty Greek salad. I like the chicken kabobs as well as the moussaka. Sometimes the owner's mother is there giving this place a real sense of character. All this at a bargain price. This one-man operation is a real find.

“Huge Servings.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

The Greek Dinner Special included a small bowl of good split pea soup. Then came a Greek salad followed by gyros of lamb which was dry, souvlaki of chicken, spanokopita with taziki. This would have been enough however it also came with rice, chips & pita! I left these.
This Cafe is like a little roadside cafe in Greece with the usual adornments. However it lacks the service...it is not owner operated.One experience is enough for me.

“Good Greek food in San Diego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

The small restaurant was excellent. The server was attentive to our needs and the food was good. We enjoyed the fish and chips, a filo/spinach/cheese dish and a chicken gyro. All meals came with lots of extras. They were used to small children and we would go back.
