My husband and I loved it. The food was fantastic, way too much on the platter. The staff, especially the manager were all lovely. Highly recommended

Full disclosure - we love Greek food, and this place did not disappoint. The chicken souvlaki was spectacular, and you can’t beat the baclava ice cream. The beer from Santorini was also really good. The only negative was that the wait staff was overwhelmed by the weekday crowd, and we had long waits between ordering drinks and food, and waiting for the check. Otherwise, this was a great restaurant.

If you are looking for authentic Greek cuisine this is the place.
They will also do take away which is a big bonus.
Friendly and helpful staff.

We had had some disappointing meals in Cairns so we were excited to find this excellent place on the Esplanade. The souvlaki was very flavorful (both lamb and chicken) and our vegetarian enjoyed several small dishes. Friendly owner and good staff too.
