A simple restaurant with good Greek food. I had crabmeat in a phyllo for starter and it was ok...A bit too much cheese. For the main course had their "signature " dish of duck moussaka. It was tasty but slightly over cooked and dry. Limited choices for wine by the glass and even more limited choices of beer.

I rated this restaurant average due a server loudly cussing at the bartender. After traveling all over the world and working in a restaurant as a teenager, I have never seen restaurant employees exhibiting such unprofessional behavior. The food was very good, but the atmosphere was ruined by the staff. You can't even enjoy a meal today with witnessing the... More

We went to Mourayo at the recommendation of a friend of my business partner. Our experience was outstanding in every respect. The service was prompt and very helpful. The menu included an attractive array of choices, all of which were prepared with fresh ingredients and tasted great. We had an octopus appetizer and a special fresh fish entree that was... More

Really great Greek food, upscale approach, but service is quite slow. Unusually good for Greek food.

Plenty of choice (all Greek!), friendly staff, good food, nice environment, very reasonably priced. Even the Greek wines are very good.

We had just flown in from the UK so we're not looking for anything special but this was special. Try the Pythagoras pork, delicious! The wine we had was so so though

Great find in the Dupont Circle area. The atmosphere was warm and lively (we sat in the window and the evening was lovely so the window was wide open to Connecticut Avenue). Our party of 6 decided to share a bunch of appetizers and entrees which was definitely the way to go so we could try many more options on... More

The Inn owners where we were staying recommended this restaurant and we are so glad they did. The atmosphere was lovely and romantic and the food was absolutely delicious. The service was top notch and they were great about accommodating dietary needs. The Moussaka was unlike any other I had ever had and it was so good. My husband had... More

The food was inedible. Three people, two for the salt cod and one for the monk fish. Everyone's was horrible. Maybe we ordered the wrong thing - I doubt it. I am absolutely dumbfounded by the positive reviews.
