“Healthy food, great flavors”
Review of The Greek Authentic Cuisine - CLOSED

True to the Mediterranean tradition, with recipes learned from his mother, Vasili offers fresh and tasty items on a large menu. He is not only the owner and cook, but all the art work on the walls is his, consisting of dozens of drawings of Greek subjects, mostly portraits. Live music is offered on some nights. I eat here often. It's my favorite restaurant in Santa Cruz.

The food here is fantastic, best Greek in town. It is a family run establishment so the food and the service is great. The portions are huge, which is great because I go home with dinner for the next night every time I dine here. Try the tzatziki. It's amazing.

Wow what a find. We went in to try an authentic Greek plate. They started us off with the chicken, lemon soup....amazing. Then moved to small Greek salads, then the lamb chop dinner which was to die for. Very juicy and full of flavor. Cooked just right because lamb can get chewy or the smell can be over powering if done incorrectly.
Free parking all around, also try the prohibition speakeasy beer or the Hawaiian beer they sell there

Really tasty food, plentiful portions, boisterous friendly atmosphere, usually crowded, entertainment sometimes, come-as-you-are setting whether beach or concert, what's not to like about this informal place...unless for some reason you wouldn't like Greek/Mediterranean cooking. Good value but not inexpensive. No outside seating, no view (except of kitchen), no intimate booths, bring a family, find your parking on the street or in nearby lots. Doesn't matter. We've been twice and will happily go again....and again.
