Decided to have lunch here on a weekend and the place was packed. We were lucky that there was a table leaving so we were seated immediately.
Once you're seated, they immediately bring you a small plate of white beans with feta cheese, and some tiny pieces of what appears to be ground beef with mustard. Not bad for a restaurant in Belgium as many don't even offer free bread.
Even though the place was packed, orders were taken fast, but the food did take a bit to arrive.
We had the yuvetsi, a platter with different things on it, and the chicken stewer. Although the food look appetizing, the Greek flavor simply wasn't there.
Unlike other reviewers I'm not going to say the food was totally bland, but definitely if you want really tastier Greek food in Brussels, I would recommend Amiros at Rue de Deux Eglises (Saint Josse) and even L'Atlantide on Rue Franklin, close to Schuman.
On the positive side, the portions are good sized so after a meal you won't be hungry, but the plates were simply lacking punch in the taste department. You can even find better tasting Greek dishes at many of the local Markets around Brussels. There is a stand in Place Jourdan on Sundays that sells way better tasting Greek food than you find at this restaurant, and obviously for one third of the price.
This is the one time that I'll say tripadvisor reviews on this restaurant aren't accurate in terms of the food tasting good. Maybe if you never ever had Greek food before you will think the food is excellent, but otherwise, I definitely wouldn't go back since as I mentioned before, better tasting Greek food is found in Brussels. Can't say is the worse Greek I've had either, but the food here is just simply not tasty enough.
We got the desserts and those were indeed pretty good. Also, people complain about the service, but given that there are 2 waiters and the place is packed, I think the waiters were doing well on servicing their tables.
Yes, if you're coming from the USA and you expect the waiter to come to you every 5 minutes asking how the food is or if you need anything else, then sure, horrible service. But if you're used to the Belgian style of serving, I say service is actually good. :)
Also, price wise, the yuvetsi was 16 euros, and the chicken skewer was 16 euros, which is definitely not a bad price for the area. However, the platters start close to 30 euros, and for that amount of money, I would expect the food to taste way better that it actually does.
I wouldn't go back as I know where to find better Greek food in Brussels.
