Wife and I had delicious plates. They have all Greek beer and wines. The kebab plate was good but ask for crispy meat, if you like it that way. Will visit again.

The food is Greek influenced and is not bad at all. I've had some good meals here. Service tends to be on the slow side but it is acceptable.

This is not a Greek-American restaurant. It is not a Greek-Southwestern restaurant. It is not even a Greek-Middle-Eastern restaurant. It is all Greek, with the rich and complex flavors of that country, made the traditional way with no shortcuts. That’s not easy, because it is...More
