The ambience of this restaurant is great. They have great food and wine selection. This place is good for couples as well as business get togethers. They open the roof during summer months which makes it even better. Highly recommend this place for greek food.

Lovely outdoor courtyard patio and the most delicious salad with perfectly grilled salmon. Love the bread. Close to downtown known as Greektown and also West-town. You'll feel like you're in Greece! Can't wait to go again!

Terrible service! They couldn't be less interested in taking care of their customers. It was difficult to even get another glass of wine or a piece of bread. It was like we were invisible!
