Tried this place based on the good reviews and we were very pleased. Portions are large and most entrees come with soup or salad and a side of rice or lemon potatoes, which is so much food! They also give you a small appetizer and a plate of tzatziki and pita to start so we were extremely full by the... More

To be honest I have not always been a fan of this restaurant. The last few times we have visited (my wife loves the place) I will admit the service AND the food seemed much improved. Grilled chicken, salads, the potatoes....definately have the potatoes, are all very good. It's a bit small and they are located in an inside corner... More

The food here is out of this world. Best hummus, yogurt sauce and gyro we've had on the island. The owner greeted us as soon as we walked in and our waitress, Ana, was so very nice and attentive. This place does not disappoint, we have found our never favorite Greek spot for sure!

The staff is always incredibly friendly and attentive. The food is just ok. There is nothing spectacular or insanely good. I may go back once more before I completely write this place off.

My wife ordered a filet of sole. When the fish came out, it was full of bones. My wife realized this when she choked on one. When we told the waitress, she went to speak with the owner. He told us that he gets the fish already filleted and therefore it's not his fault. He never offered to remove the... More

Went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon and ordered off the lunch menu. Hubby & I both had the chicken stuffed with spinach & feta cheese topped with a lemon sauce. It was wonderful! It came with lemon roasted potatoes and a small Greek salad. Hubby also ordered Greek Mythos beer which he enjoyed. The meal portion was large and... More

We went for lunch recently. I had the grilled octopus with lemon potatoes and my wife went for the giro. The octopus was very good. If octopus isn't fresh, it is mushy and not flavorful. This wasn't the case here. The lemon potatoes were just like my mother's. The gyro was also quite good but not outstanding. The Greek salad... More

My favorite dish here is Chicken on top of the greek salad $16. tax included. Butter beans are fantastic. Also good are lemon potatoes. This is a casual restaurant not fancy and the prices are not fancy high either. Real food and delic.
