We often eat here. Freshly made food. AND, they have more than just Greek fare. Oh, try their Veal Chop - probably one of the top cuts of meat in the Ventura Area. Ribs? We have had their BabyBack Ribs several times. They use a rub seasoning - rather than a heavy coating. Lamb Chops - they are wonderful. Try... More

I have been visiting here regularly when visiting family for the past 4 years. The food is authentic and delicious. The lamb gyro is my favorite. The lamb is tender and flavorful. The Greek Salad has fresh crunchy lettuce and the dressing is light and not overpowering. The Chicken Slovaki is super good and the roasted chicken is fantastic.

I have been searching for great Greek food in Ventura & LA County for years and here was Stephen's right under my nose on Main Street in Ventura. I've tried every place for Greek food from San Gabriel Valley to LA to San Fernando Valley to Conejo Valley, but none compare to Stephen's Greek Market and Cafe. The lamb souvlaki... More

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant. We found out from a friend about it and not from yelp or google (not listed?). We stopped by for lunch and were really surprised by the large space, small market and separate bakery section. I ordered the pork souvlaki and my wife ordered the halibut. The pork was so tender and... More

My son said if he closed his eyes while eating and listening to the music, he'd think he was back in Greece. We were missing a real Greek pita gyro and decided to try this place. Best french fries I've ever had. Gyro costs about 6 times what it would in Greece, but it was really good. Didn't like the... More

This place is the real deal! GENUINE AUTHENTIC Greek Food. You can tell the head chef/cook is probably the owners grandfather and it comes across most in the food!! It is a (Very) small market where you can purchase Greek products. They also have a small bar, small side bakery, and small events room if you wish to host a... More

My wife and I and friends often eat at Stephen's because of it's wonderful food. Everything is fresh and tasty. My favorite is the lamb gyro, but anything else on the menu is as good, notably the salads and the tzatziki. Since it's also a market you can buy that tzatziki, olives, greek pastries etc. and enjoy them at home....... More

Gyro salad split for 2 was enough food for us. Plenty of meat and good dressing. Open market style dinning with counter ordering.

I had lunch here for the first time and it was really good. I had the burger plate and had plenty of food; burger, fries and salad. Everything was delicious.
