This restaurant is low key but the food is wonderful! The wait staff - Noel and Kristen were welcoming, friendly and loads of fun. Made for a delightful Saturday evening. The merguez sausage tasted great and was a perfect starter. Definitely will make this a regular stop when in Kailua .

It's a pretty small room, and it's not very fancy, but it was a nice change of pace after eating a lot of expensive meals on Oahu. Also it's BYOB, with only a $5 corkage fee as printed on the menu, and for us no corkage fee because we went with a couple of local-regular customers, which is also a nice change of pace. The menu is pretty standard Greek/mediterranean fare (spanakopita, hummus, gyros, souvlaki, lamb shanks, kabobs, etc). The four of us got gyros and souvlaki and had 2 bottles of wine that we brought all for under $50, which was about 1/2 of what we were averaging for dinners during our vacation. And the food was really tasty and filling as well.

The building may need some repairs, but the food was amazing. We had the gyro meal which came with a greek salad and garlic fries. I'll go back :) we went after hiking.

While the waiters were very friendly, the food was between bad and average. I would not go back. Saganaki tasted like fuel as the brandy did not burn off. A complaint about the inedible dish resulted in no response from wait or or kitchen.
