We were disappointed with El Greco. Although the service was excellent and the staff extremely friendly, the food was mediocre. The roast chicken didn't have the typical Greek spices and the calamari weren't seasoned at all.

Delicious, saganaki was excellent but should have come with some peta. Sea food trio was really good, "kalamari" was done perfectly. less expensive than some of the near by places.

A beach restaurant with average food. A pleasant ambiance and cordial servers. Enjoyable but not exceptional.

I wasn't sure what to expect when we walked in to the heavily themed Greek restaurant (even playing Greek radio). We are happy we gave it a chance because the food was fresh and delicious, the wine was great, and we were very satisfied by the end of our meal.
