“Good!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Simple, cosy restaurant with friendly and efficient service. Some Greek classics as well as a few Italian pasta dishes. The souvlaki was good although served with too much sauce over it which seems to be a common occurrence in many restaurants in Sweden. The grilled haloumi was tasty but again different from what I had in Greece. Overall a pleasant experience although the food is probably not very authentic. Reasonably priced by Swedish standards.

“Fantastic food and very friendly to vegan guests”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We were there last evening. We had one vegan and one vegetarian in the group. They had 4 options on the menu for vegetarians. None for vegans but they were very willing and happy to put something together. The food and service were great!!

“Almost perfect”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Very nice restaurant with good athmosphere and food. We eat mixgrill-plate and that was 100% value of money. Very nice and friendly service. But why, when you go to the greek restaurant you find pizza menu. I can highly reccomend this restaurant.

“Excellent”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

We ate here twice and the food quality and value for money was excellent.

There is a lovely member of satff who was very helpful and translated the menu for the sad english people!! Unfortunately I didn't get her name but she had worked in Ireland for a number of years and still had a bit of a lilt.

“Good solid good, but some items are a bit overpriced”
Reviewed July 22, 2011

We ate dinner here with four people and a baby. The staff was friendly and accommodated our baby quite happily, including heating up our food and suggesting that we move to a different table that opened up and had more space... Bravo to them!

The main dishes were well prepared and at a reasonable price. Sizes were reasonable - All four of us were able to easily finish our portions.

The starters were hit and miss. The grape leaves were OK. Far from the best that we ever had, but certainly not the worst.

The garlic bread was very good, but insanely overpriced - 39 kr for two small pieces. That left a very sour taste in my mouth.

We looked at the dessert menu but decided to pass - 59 kr for ice cream with chocolate sauce just seemed a bit too expensive.

Overall, I would say that if you stick to the main courses, there is reasonable value to be had, but stay away from the starters and desserts.
