Was craving a gyro so came here in the heart of greektown. We had a regular and chicken gyro. Both were disappointing. Stale pita that crumbled. Dry chicken. Bummer

This is a very real Greek restaurant. The food was very good, and the service matched the food. Try it!

Staff is rude and food is not great. Salad is a bowl of iceberg lettuce drowned in dressing. No one cares in the place. First time for everything I guess. $15 wasted on a chicken gyro served in pieces. You may keep this one.

We stopped in Greektown to have dinner and decided on the Golden Fleece. The smell of the gyro meat was very pleasant when we walked in. The service was quick and efficient, and the food was excellent. I tried the gyro salad and it was very tasty and filling. I could not even finish it. The others in our party... More

Had a fun al fresco anniversary lunch in Greektown! Greek music piped over speakers on whole block. I had a gyro and my husband had a flaming piece of goat cheese and amazing crusty bread! It was wonderful and very moderately priced. Very large servings. Felt like we were in a foreign country, like maybe, Greece!

We were choosing between a reputed Greek restaurandt in Greektown or the Lafayette Coney and decided ti go with The Golden Fleece. It was ok, but we were expecting a little bit more. Food was pretty good- we got the Saganaki, and gyros, which were pretty good. The restaurant itself and bathrooms were a little dirty, but wasn't a huge... More

I haven't eaten at the Golden Fleece in a long long time. When I was going to school at Wayne State and later working downtown, we'd eat here a lot. The food at this long time Greektown restaurant was always budget friendly and good. I always loved their gyro's, which was why I stoppedin for lunch. The menu at this... More

This is the last restaurant in Greektown that makes it own gyro spits and you can taste it in the food. Great Saganaki and an even better gyro. Their Avgolemeno (chicken lemon rice soup) might be my personal favorite. Also has a cold octopus appetizer, which if you like octopus is a real treat. Portions are very big and the... More

We stopped here on a Friday night before a Tigers game. They had closed off the street and we ate outside. Apparently Friday nights in the summer will be the same- street entertainers (there was a fire juggler and a singer with an acoustic guitar). I enjoyed the people watching! Flaming cheese was good, a little crusty for some reason.... More

Don't look for fancy surroundings, just good service and GREAT Greek food. One plate is enough to share, especially if you get Saganaki and enjoy the bread with it. No trip to Greektown is complete without stopping by here to eat. Come before the game and and enjoy the free shuttle-the "Ouzo Cruzo"
