I have to say that food was absolutely disappointing!
My skewers had the hardest meat I´ve ever had in my life!
It was very difficult to swallow plus afterwards I didn't feel well!
Service was good but food was awful!
I hope if you go you have another experience, otherwise don't spoil your good memories about other good Greek restaurants!
Good luck!

Had the pleasure of meeting the owner George. This guys knows and does everything from karate to cooking to you name it. He started the restaurant some 100 yrs ago and you can see from the unique style it has evolved over time. The interesting aspect of this place is the layout, it's not here or there but does offer some little alcoves where you can host a private party or function.

After looking at the place I was skeptical about the quality of the food, however I was real surprised when the chef came out to personally take my order. I had the Souvlaki and wasn't disappointed.

All in all this is a student city and naturally caters to students and alike. It's not a high-priced restaurant but it is a nice place if you're new to town as all the customers seem to be very loyal guests and will easily invite you into a conversation if open to chatting. And if they don't, then you can guarantee that George will be around to say hello and make the introductions for you!
