Had a great lunch. We choose the specials of the day, the lamb and the pork. Both were large portions and the meat was tender and flavourful. A glass of retsina made the meal complete. W were dining here a few years ago and it was equally good then as well.

I'm local to the Twin Cities so I thought I should try this restaurant a few times to confirm my initial positive experience at lunch. The first dinner visit was with traveler friends who enjoy unusual menu options and insisted that we all eat different entrees to compare. They loved the restaurant decor with interesting rock and wood sculptures. Our... More

We brought our son to dinner for his 19th. While he is not an adventurous eater he said we could choose, so we did. He didn't enjoy his meal, but he LOVED the amazing lemonade that is sweetened with honey, and I concurred. My husband and I enjoyed our meal and my husband very much liked the rice pudding!

I was hungry for really good food and this was a great choice. We had the Greek salad and the lamb shank. It was delicious. The restaurant is very clean, the food extra fresh and made with love, and the service was just right. They also serve a Greek coffee in a tiny cup -- well worth the price. The... More

I live in Minneapolis, but this was a new restaurant for us. We have traveled to Greece and sampled cuisine from many different locals on the Peloponnese mainland. The options here were extensive, whether your needs extend from carnivore to vegan with no preference seemingly biased against. We were all pleased with our choices. We choose a appetizer on the...

Great place for a snack or meal. Try The Black Eyed Peas and or beets to tantalize your taste buds. Grab a super thick Greek coffee for a treat. Awesome food! Rebecca took care of us and made the experience more enjoyable. Swing by for some authentic cuisine. Opa!

Food was good, service was inept. The waiter was late to arrive and was then inattentive. The service spoiled an otherwise pleasant experience. It's a nice concept which is poorly executed. If you like, take your chances. Food was 3.5 but service was off the chart at the bottom

Wonderful gyros, the Greek fries are fabulous. If only the walls didn't have food splashed all over them. Beautiful stained glass windows in the entry but they looked like they haven't been washed in years. Makes one wonder how clean the kitchen is.

Been here many times and often pick up food for take out. Gyros are good. Skordalia is my favorite app. Service has always been good. Street parking.

I went for lunch today and ate with a friend and my daughter. It was delicious. Enjoyed soup, gyro and sorry can't remember the other item. I'll be back to try other items. It was very busy for lunch during the week.
