“Old School”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

If you lick the feel of old scjhool dining, then this is the place for you - a blast from the past right on Baker street in the middle of everything

“Best diner in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you are looking for a wide array on the menu with ample space for all party sizes this is it! They have a patio outside, which is a very nice option in the summer.

Middle Eastern, burgers, souvlaki, roast lamb, fish & chips; this has been an excellent Nelson eatery for many years, and still holds up as a great place to eat!

“Our regular hangout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

We go there even if we don't know what we want to eat. It's your basic Greek diner with lots more. There's always something satisfying. Terrific service. Attentive management. Full bar. The lamb is great every day.

“A Nelson legend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

This place has been around for ages and is still a favorite of mine. Not as popular as it used to be and it could use a redecorating and perhaps some menu changes... but they still serve up the best fish and chips in town - halibut in local beer batter and fresh cut fries.
And the staff are great, too.
