Reviewed August 20, 2012

The restaurant is unassuming but the staff are friendly and the food,especially the houmos is really good.

“Nothing Fancy - So Yummy”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is by far the best Greek restaurant in Johannesburg. It gives you a true feeling of being on an island in Greece and eating at the local taverna and the food is so, so yummy - I've never been disappointed. It's especially great to go with friends so that you can order lots of mezze and have samplings of all the delicious items on the menu or else order the platter but that's not quite as fun.

“Great Greek food, good value, superb fun”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is a regular hangout for me - one of my local regular joints - and for good reason - the food is superb, the service and attention great, and the vibe is always buzzy. The food is much better than any meals I ever had in Greece - that says it all.

“Best Greek restaurant in Johannesburg”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

In my opinion, the best Greek food in Johannesburg. Traditional old style decor with fresh food and true Greek atmosphere. Fast service. Must be Johannesburg's oldest Greek restaurant.
