I know little about Greek cuisine, but 7 of us came here to celebrate a birthday and we had a ball. Chelsea served us and she was great. We were advised to share an appie and I am glad we did, we chose Greek Ribs, to die for, soft, succulent and yummy. Friends had one of the platters which looked... More

The best Greek food in the area! The Calamari is fantastic and the beef souvlaki is a must have! Will be going back very soon

When in this area, pub fare we go to Tonics. For fine dining, we come here. This has been a favourite of ours for some time and continues to still be.

This was not our first choice for dinner, but being a busy Saturday night, ended up here. They had a couples platter on special, which both of us couples ordered. The platter was very full of food. Of course there was lots of rice and potatoes. The Greek salad was just okay, needed something. There was a big pile of... More

recently attended a dinner for charitable purposes - had not been for a long time. Although it was clear the dish had been pre-prepared - due to busy volume, was still nicely done - prawn souvlaki with Greek salad and rice. Salad was nice and fresh and rice and prawns were tasty. Service was pleasant. Was also nice to re-connect... More

We enjoyed dinner out with friends this week, and as always we were pleased with the quality of the food and service here. We started with a calamari appetizer which was fantastic, and moved on to the main course with came quickly and was very satisfying. I had the beef souvlaki which was so flavourful and amazingly tender that I... More

My wife and I both enjoy this place for fine dining in Greek. Most often we bring friends and/or family. Great food and friendly service. Sometimes they have belly dancer entertainment which makes it more funeral. Highly recommend it.

I ate here with a group on a Saturday night. The restaurant was very busy; it was a good thing that we had made a reservation. There is a pay-parking lot next door and free parking on the street (but an open street parking spot can be hard to find). The server was very good. She was efficient and accurate... More

Having never eaten Greek food before it was an adventure when out good friends suggested eating here. A Monday evening in March and the place was steady with trade. A warm welcome; quick service with drinks and very helpful in telling us about the menu and specials. My husband and I shared the chicken livers cooked in olive oil and... More

Warmly greeted, helpful staff to determine which wine to order, I make it a point to visit this restaurant each time I am in Kelowna. Amazingly talented belly dancer every Saturday night! The potatoes are sinfully delicious, the ekmek and baklava are some of the best I've ever had, and the lamb chop meal literally melted in my mouth. Over... More
