We love Greek food, but have yet to find anything decent up until now. Went there on a busy Saturday night for a special occasion and was afraid of the wait on line. The wait was not too long, service was great, and best of all everything we tried (4 of us) was excellent.
Octopus was a great hit - very tender and flavorful, and I had the grilled whole yellow-tail which was perfect.

We dined there twice during our stay in Ft. Lauderdale and liked it a lot! The service was good, and their octopus salad and lamb chops were great. The place is popular and tends to get busy, which a good thing. Definitely recommend it.

I could eat here every day. The food and service can not be beat. The restaurant does not take reservations so arrive early or expect to wait in line. I love the Greek salad, the whole yellowtail snapper is out of this world and my husband always has the grilled pork on a skewer. I have also eaten the delicious shrimp with a special sauce as well as the grilled salmon. Don't miss this great restaurant.
