Located on Bay Street in the middle of the "tourist district" this upstairs restaurant offers excellent service and high quality lunch menu with daily specials.

Service is always great here - you can tell this is a family owned business as they make sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable. The grilled hogfish is absolutely amazing, goes well with their sangria special!

Hi! My husband, son and I visited your restaurant last week and had a wonderful lunch up on the balcony. We really enjoyed all the yummy food as we chatted with the owners daughter (our waitress) who was delightful! I wanted to let her know that I finally spoke to my relative about the "special food" we enjoyed in their home. So please pass along to her that it was Kolyva Wheat Berry Memorial Food. So delicious!

Not only you can find the traditional greek favorites here but also Bahamian delicacies such as conch, snapper, grouper and lobster!
