I've driven past this place for years, and to be honest, something about the exterior never seemed that appealing. Finally went in for dinner recently and I was really surprised. Firstly, it's a real family run place. The waitress was knowledgeable about the food, and the food is really good. The lentil soup that day was amazing. My Lamb was... More

The people who own this restaurant really make you feel comfortable, and the food is worth coming back to again and again. Food can be a little slow coming out, so not a place to go if you are in a hurry. This is a place to sit down and enjoy a meal with family and friends. Sit down and... More

This was our first top at this Greek restaurant around the corner from where we were staying. The service was attentive and friendly. Our main recommendation was the food. My husband ordered lamb and I had a vegetable lasagna. We had a desert called ekmek that was wonderful. Definitely would return!

I really like this restaurant. The service is wonderful and the people are so nice. I love their food and so does everyone who comes with us. In fact, my husband requested this place for a birthday meal. Always good.

We have been to this restaurant on several occasions in the past. The food has always been good, not great or OMG but consistently good. They have an annual "Greek Night" and we went last year. It was a lot of fun with a belly dancer, a Greek duo playing traditional instruments and singing as well as traditional Greek dancing.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a Saturday evening meal at this friendly and relaxing family-run restaurant. The food choices and nightly specials were excellent - making a choice was downright difficult! We opted for a starter of saganaki and a shared platter (pita, spanikopita, meatballs, shrimp in a wonderful sauce, calamari, hummus, etc). Huge! Easily filled 2 hungry diners. The food was tasty...

We always feel welcome here and end up ordering too much. Food is so good and fresh that will be engraved forever in your taste memory. Location is good and they have some parking available always. Excellent experience or come back for celebrations or just plain lunch.

We often eat here when we want a home cooked meal. The staff is so friendly as we are becoming regulars. The salads are very fresh and the plates are plentiful.
