Excellent Greek food for out group lunch on 4 August 2018. Delicious calamari and excellent moussaka were high lights. All with a view to Magnetic Island across Townsville’s wonderful Strand. Well worth a visit.

I just got home after a long-haul flight. My husband took us there for lunch. Meal choices were easy (good when brain-dead from travelling). The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was delicious and quick.
