Read reviews and was excited about dinner. About 12-14 tables total with one server last night. He did what he could but it was tough bc of constant stream of patrons. Husband and I got fixed menu and that was a mistake. Mixed beef entree had tough filets with same brown gravy as daughter's ground beef meal. It was a... More

I was looking for a good Greek restaurant within Gothenburg. This restaurant popped up in trip advisor as no 1. Very tiny, cozy place. I wanted to check their food. That's why took mixed grill so that I will get a quick idea about different proteins in the same plate. Overall, It was tasty but my lamb piece was a... More

Staying just down the road we found this small Greek restaurant whilst out walking our surroundings. We shared a mezze platter which was very generous in quantity for 2 people - various dips and some preserved stuffed vine leaves; accompanied by bread and a great fresh salad of cucumbers, tomatoes - then we shared a portion of moussaka - again...

I was told about this place from a friend, and needed to try this, as I love greece, and greek food. Went there alone on a tuesday night, and the place was crowded, so I had to wait 5 minutes for a table. A friendly server came quick to take my order. The place was really cosy and I didnt... More

Ate dinner here in company of two teen and a twelve year old. This small taverna have a genuine cozy atmosphere and tasty well prepared greek food. Friendly staff! The turkish touch is a bit confusing but I really recommend this place if you like greek food!

In this small restaurant we had a dinner on last Saturday. Even if the restaurant was full when we called to book a table, they found one for us exactly by the window as we like. Real Greek atmosphere with sets on the table and the music. Moussaka was very good, but I really loved both the baked goat cheese... More

The restaurant is located a little bit outside the city centre, but it's a good location and a nice restaurant. Okay service, a small and cosy room with not to many tables. A little crowded, especially in the noggrant and weekends, then you need a reservation. The food is delicious, well made and big meals, which I think is great!... More

Often stay at Spar hotel Majorna when in Gothenburg for business. This time preferred to eat locally instead of going to the city centre. Chose Efessos and selected the moussaka. Service was quick and helpful. Food menu quite extensive, small but adequate wine list. Greek atmosphere in this pretty small restaurant. Somewhere between a three or four, and I would... More
