We were disappointed to find Plaka's closed today after attending Red Wings game. Tried their neighbors The Golden Fleece. Very accommodating to our group of 6. Sat upstairs which was nice and spacious. The wait staff was very attentive. Gyros were very good and reasonably priced. Flaming cheese was ok, they serve with bread instead of pita which was different.... More

We were not able to wait for a table at the restaurant we really like. There was no wait here, and i know why. Just barly average food. Nothing more to say.

I love gyros, but as with a lot of food that I love, real gyros - sliced off of a turning spit - they've become hard to find. At Golden Fleece, you get the real deal and a lot of it, to boot! Their lemon rice soup is outstanding too. Service is friendly and attentive.

First time in Greektown and I was craving an authentic Gyro. Stopped in the Golden Fleece while wandering around the area. I ordered the Gyro and fries to go. When I opened the box the pita was separate from the filling so I could fill it as I wanted. They didnt skimp on the meat either, I had enough to... More

When you walk in be open minded. It's Detroit greektown! If there is a game in town it will be crowded but worth the wait. They will pack them in. Like a sardines can. Don't let it discourage you. The food is excellent. The music is fun. The staff is great. All in all a great place to eat.

What a treat our fairly late evening stop was, the Chicken Souvlaki was superb and was served with onion and tomato and pitta bread and fries. The room has a great / quirky look to it and its a great location right on the heart of the Greektown restaurant area. Highly recommended.

At the high recommendation of a family member, we decided to celebrate my Grandmother's birthday dinner here at Golden Fleece after spending an afternoon and, later, evening at the Greektown Casino-Resort right across the street. This place is very cozy when you walk in. It was also packed when we walked in, and the lamb cooking smelled amazing! We had... More

This small restaurant is tucked away and might be difficult to find if you weren't looking for it but they serve the best gyros in Greektown. The bathrooms are not the best and service is average for that level of dinning.

We are in town on family business and decided to take a break downtown. After a brief trip to the casino we stopped in here after the lunch rush. Phenomenal food! The Saginaki was perfect as was the lemon rice soup. Authentic and perfectly seasoned. Did I mention the Gyro? Robust with a generous portion. This is our new "go... More
