“Greek Goodness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

We stopped by on Saturday after a few drinks & had a great time dancing with the locals. A few days later we decided to go back because I was craving a Greek salad. Even though it was early, the server said we could order whatever we wished & we weren't restricted to their breakfast selections. The food was really delicious. The complimentary hummus was accompanied by warm pita bread. The dolmades were pretty typical, but the Athena salad was especially yummy.

The only downside was walking by the staff smoking to get inside the restaurant. Smoke if you will, but staff should have another designated place to do so.

“Only thing that is missing is a view of the ocean.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

The food here is very good. Not 5 star, but very close. The bar is open to the street side on the one side and restaurant side on the other, so you have your choice. I love Stella Beer and they serve it the best way. In the Stella Glass, ice cold and cut the head off exactly like it's supposed to be:) I've had lunch here and also dinner. Both are great. And the staff are all excellent. The owner stands outside at a podium of sorts and says hi to all that walks by and is a welcoming introduction to his establishment. They serve Greek food. I know when you hear that you think Gyro's, but it's much, much more than that. Food is nothing like you have tried. You have to stop here when you are in the area.

“Yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

We popped in for an app of pita and hummus which was fantastic on day, then dinner another day. The food was very good, they had a variety of drinks to choose from and you could sit outside in the FL sun. Its a bit pricey, but worth it..

“Live music & open air on the weekends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We came for dinner on a Saturday night and had a short wait and enjoyed the live music that was outside. The service was a little bit slow, but nice. The food was good - came with complimentary hummus and pita. The prices were standard beach prices, but the portions were on the smaller side in comparison to many of the restaurants. The flaming cheese was great in presentation and very tasty. Good greek food by the water!

“Brunch here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

My husband and I had brunch here one late morning in February. During a very crowded time, we were able to secure an outdoor table and enjoyed the people watching as we were dining. Food was good, reasonable, and service great.
Would go back again and highly recommend to others in the area.
