We have dined at Costas multiple times over the last few months and consistently they have provided excellent service, delicious food and a great atmosphere. We have dined with family and with out of town guests. Excellent value for money and no compromise on menu to get this.
Prompt service is always a plus. Great wine selection. Recommend as must for locals and visitors.

Great Greek food in a nice atmosphere, set in an unassuming, rather drab strip mall. Once you step through the doors it is clean and modern, white walls and blue lighting evoking a bit of Greece, topped by twinkling LED stars in a black ceiling. The souvlaki was very tasty, as was a grilled lamb dish. Service was prompt as well.

Great service and fantastic food. My wife and I met another couple for dinner . The restaurant was full . The waitress was excellent ,introduced her self , her shift did finish and she introduced her replacement.
All of the food was excellent , and great choice. They had run out of the wine we requested but the replacement wine was satisfactory.

Had a wonderful night here. The food was superb, the service excellent, and all for quite a reasonable price. There is just one reservation though. Our first time there we booked 4 people for 6pm and there was no trouble, but on a more recent occasion we tried booking 8 people for 7pm, and we told the only available sittings they could offer us were 6pm or 8:30pm. Maybe that's how the bookings happened to fall that particular night - I hope so. I'd hate to think it's a deliberate policy of manipulating booking times to cram in two sittings per table at the expense of meeting customer demand.
