One of our favorite places! Quaint and good. Quality food and atmosphere. They have a fee locations but this is our favorite. We can walk to Graeters for ice cream afterwards.

This is a must experience restaurant. If you like Greek food, give this place a try. Don’t let the small size deter you, it’s a wonderful packaged treat.

Our book group met at the N Locust Hill Dr location because it is a quiet restaurant with few distractions. The food is always fresh and flavorful and very reasonably priced. The staff is always friendly and the atmosphere spacious and congenial.
