This is a good restaurant. I'd eat here again, if I had to. I just have not tried the other restaurants in La Union.

First time to try Greek cuisine and I enjoyed it to the max aside from it's Greek ambience wherein the servers donned Greek inspired dress. The price is also reasonable. What more can I say except that, when in San Juan, Greek food is number 1.

Out of all, Gefseis is the restaurant we enjoyed (food/ambience) the most during our LU trip. We ordered the cheese appetizer with lemon (so good!), mixed souvlaki (lamb, pork, beef, 2 pita bread) that is very filling and delicious, moussaka (eggplant, beef) which tastes like vegetable lasagna, and banana (greek yogurt) shake (surprisingly refreshing). We enjoyed everything we ordered, we... More

I liked the food, but given the available restaurant choices in San Juan, I would rather not come back here. Good points: The food was tasty - my friend and I had lamb chops and the chicken wrap (their specialty, don't remember the name). Both were tasty. Think it's worth trying this restaurant for their dishes. Bad points: Expensive and... More

After all these years, still the best food in the Phils. News items added on a continual basis. Try the lemon pie dessert. I also recommend the roasted lamb with potatoes plate.

I always come here for the great view, and classy dining environment. Gefseis offers a clean and classy experience, and always offers charm for a couples or family night out my standard dish is the souvlaki plate or wrap, with appetizers of saganaki and tyrokafteri with pita.
