“nice people, good food”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

we visited this place more than once, the people that run this are friendly and helpful, the food is good and they will go out of their way to help,
i would like to mention a pizza which we stumbled upon here,its not on the menu,- yet, but in my opinion it should be, we were offered a little taste while talking to the chef who is married to the boss, its much better than all the other pizzas on offer in the italian eating houses around jolly harbour, having said that the greek food is very good inc a little butter bean dish which the chef is working on

“Wonderful Evening”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

When in Antigua get to this relatively new establishment.
Great service and great Greek food.
The management really tries hard to make you feel at home.
Not too expensive relative to other resturants in the area.

“Excellent authentic Greek food in Antigua !”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

This restaurant has just opened. It is run by a friendly Greek family with mum as chef. Very good she is too and takes great pride in her cooking. It is always a good sign when the owner is the chef. The menu is good authentic Greek cuisine We have been here a few times now and the roast lamb is amazing, so is the moussaka, lamb shanks, souvlaki and also a really nice selection starters including meze, tzaztiki and good old Greek salad. Everything is fresh and well prepared and presented. We loved everything we tried, all cooked in traditional Greek fashion. The wine list is also very good. The service is friendly and attentive. Nice table cloths inside and some tables of the balconies outside. They could do with a bit more in the way of decor in the place to give it some more atmosphere but it is a new restaurant and I'm sure that will happen.
When we have been there it has been quite busy with local residents and holiday makers alike. There are a precious few good restaurants around Jolly Harbour and it is good to see this one taking off. It is also extremely good value for money, combined with the good food has made it very poular.
Location - just walking distance outside Jolly Harbour - it is about 100 yards past the main Epicurean supermarket security gates in a strange looking building called Jolly Castle (don't let the name put you off !)
Highly recommended.
