Went to see a movie on Issac Street in downtown Norwalk and noticed this restaurant on the way there. As the movie ended right at dinner time we decided to give it a try. So happy we did as the food, service and value were outstanding.

The restaurant doesn't take reservations, and can be quite loud but neither issue is insurmountable. They have a basic wine list but it's the food you'll most enjoy.

Their avgolemono was etherial, flavorful and the perfect texture. The saganaki delicious and their terokafteri unique as the cheese, peppers and tomatoes all arrived warm in foil with the requisite pita. Their Greek salads included the most flavorful tomatoes and the dressing was light and fresh. Main courses were generous and reasonably priced.

Forget about going to the movies, we'll be going back just to eat!

Best Greek food you will ever have
Make sure to try the Lamb Chops, men's chicken of course their Greek salad and side dish of Orzo
This family owned and operated restaurant is not to be missed and people so nice
Parking a little tuff because of a apartment bldg not finished but don't let that keep you away!
For Dessert always the Almond cake
You can't go wrong with any of their dishes all home made and delicious

New to the area. a friend recommended the Pontos Taverna. We are new also to Greek cuisine but decided to give it a try. We had a great meal at a reasonable price. We asked our server for suggestions. We shared a small Greek salad - fresh and delicious. My wife had the special, stuffed peppers, and I had perfectly grilled lamb chops. Our server recommended the rice pudding for dessert and a cup of Greek coffee. Delicious ending to a delicious meal. We highly recommend the Pontos Taverna.

My first visit with my Greek Nephew on a Busy Saturday night. Avgolemono Soup ( Greek Chicken Soup) was excellent ( almost as good as Yaya's) while the Gyro and Bifteki platters were also excellent. Meat is flavorful and well seasoned accompanied by a tasty tsatsiki, pita wedges, fresh tomato salad and great orzo and vermicelli side -all on the same platter. A ridiculously good Baklava and Greek coffee was the perfect ending while the pleasant service and family owned pride is so obvious. Why go to Astoria or NYC when you have this hidden gem right here in Ct! I look forward to my next visit . Bravo !
