Good Greek food. Lovely staff. Quick service. Greeks favourite, which is usually a sign that it's great. Also like the music on Saturday night. Even a vegetarian can eat Greek!

We recently moved to Williamstown after 15 years in the USA, and were eager to find a "Mexican local". The server was polite if a bit shy. We arrived at opening time, 5.30pm and were told the Margaritas were not frozen yet? We were charged...More
