“wonderful valentine's night meal”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

on a busy rainy Valentine's night we went to dine at this restaurant. The wait was worth it. (they even prepared some delicious appetizers for the lengthy line of people waiting) The restaurant was packed, but the line moved reasonably quickly....there are no reservations at this establishment. Both of the salad choices are large and delicious. The appetizers were delicious, and all the main courses from mousaka to ka babs to fish were perfectly prepared as well. Service was polite and attentive. Well worth the long drive (for us) to get there.

“Excellent Food and Lively Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

They were able to accommodate our group of 12 in their covered patio which was comfortable for all of us. The food was excellent and authentic. Service was outstanding and I would be a regular if I lived in the area.

“Lives up to its reputation”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

We had passed this restaurant and observed all the cars. And then a trusted friend advised us to try, sure enough this was great food, and good value. The Greek salad had the freshest tomatoes, cucumbers and feta. Best ever. Roast chicken delicious, grouper was great , a shared baklava a perfect sweet finale.

“Great meal”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

You know how good a restaurant is by how busy it is and this Greek restaurant is busy but very organized and make you feell at home. My wife and I shared the lamb chops and garides tou sotiri (large baked shrimp). We were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful flavour of both. We highly recommend this restaurant.

“Good food but nothing special”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I expected to grab some really fresh and healthy greek food there but was not what we found. I ordered beans in tomato sauce and dill, fried zucchini and mash potatoes and my boyfriend had roasted lamb with green beans and boiled potatoes salad. The beans had too much dill, zucchini was quite mushy and greasy and mashed potatoes were with too much garlic, you will taste it for the rest of the day. I haven't tried the lamb but he said it was tasty.
Service was okay. We sat on the veranda and was reaaaally hot, but inside was uncomfortably cold, so if you are coming back from the beach better to stay in the veranda.
