Nice, clean, and welcoming atmosphere. Food is very good especially the lentil soup. Staff is very friendly. The only drawback is the fact that they do not serve beer or wine.

You can’t be sorry you came to this restaurant! Have been going here for years and it is always great. I like the gyro and salad along with fresh pita. Easy to find in the village and parking is easy depending on time of day.
