Love the lemon soup, and the gyro platter is very, very good. Souvlaki was amazing. Service was prompt and attentive. Will go back again and again.

If you would like to have tasty Greek food for dinner - this is a place. If you would like to try everything - order Eleni's Greek Tour and Pikelia. The service is very good, and the prices are moderate.

This restaurant does not offer live music and does not have a 'real' Greek feeling. But it has excellent real Greek food for a nice price.
