4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Ate lunch at the restaurant as part of a food/ wine tour. Cute little whole in the wall place. Decent saganaki (although wayyyy saltier than you will find in Greece), good gyros. I tend to crave Greek food, so will probably go again when I visit St. Augustine in the future.

Our family comes to St Augustine every year for vacation, and this is always one of our family gathering sites. We all just love the food, and its atmosphere. Decent prices too.

Do you like greek food? You'll love this. Very authentic, very good food and great service. The people who work here are wonderful. You HAVE to get the Greek Sampler plate AND Baklava for dessert!

Went there especially for the spinach pie. It's the best. The desserts are also delicious. This restaurant was a surprise treat as it was suggested by a friend.

It looks like a hole in the wall but really it is a lovely restaurant. The staff was very kind and helpful and the food was great!

We went for an early supper on a Saturday night. The place was nearly empty. Wait staff was very friendly. We ordered a plate with a mix of Greek food. Every thing was very good. My only complaint was the spinach pie wasn't crisp. Very clean and tidy place. Very good location at the base of the bridge of lions... More

While visiting the Lightner Museum we were told there was a 25 min. wait for lunch at their cafe. I was hungry so we tried the restaurant at the hotel across the street and no one was present to greet us so we moved on. We remembered eating at a nice little Greek restaurant on a former visit. We walked... More

I know my Greek food. From NY and eat it once every two weeks. This place has decent food. Retsina wine was very good. Stopped in for early lite diner. Wine, Greek platter and spinach pie. Only complaint is the platter dips being served in small plastic cups. Presentation zero! For 15.95 give me a dish that looks inviting. Plastic... More

I do not like writing poor reviews but I did not have a good experience here. The service was extremely slow for the restaurant to be as empty as it was and when my food did come around to me it looked like a poor quality microwave meal with little to no care taken into it. Just not a place... More
