“Nice Quick Greek Place”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Conveniently located right by the water, the Midway museum, and various harbor cruises this is a great place to pick up a light Greek lunch. Friendly and fast service to eat in or take out. The Gyros and Souvlaki were surprisingly light and delicious. Do yourself a favor and order some baklava, you won't regret it.

“A nice suprise”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

We enjoyed having a stop for a meal here. It was good food at a reasonable price. We went back two or three times, to try a little of everything.

“Great dinner!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Being of Greek descent - my wife always notices a Greek restaurant.

Tonight we stumbled upon this cafe at the waterfront. Spanakopita and a Greek salad was my choice. It was a large portion of both - enough that my wife and I split a meal. Close to home-made. Would definitely order again. The kids had the gyros - beef and lamb - HUGE portion. They could not even finish. Portions were so large we had no room for dessert - too bad too as they looked incredible! Also, very reasonably priced.

If you are visiting the Seaport Village - you might want give this little restaurant a try!

“Food is good”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Food is good with a wide variety of choices, including meat and poultry dishes as well as vegetables. Service is rather quick. A good choice if you're at Seaport Village.
