We ate here on three occasions; twice for dinner and once for lunch. The restaurant is very clean; we had a choice of dining indoors our outside. The service is excellent and the food is sensational. Our server, Kevin , was most gracious.

We came here when in port from a cruise. The reason for the stop...conch fritters. They were delicious. We also tried 2 bottles of Kalik beer. Beer was served with ice cold frosty mugs. Good, quick service. We will come back on the next cruise!

Classic Greek style restaurant in heart of Nassau, steps from the cruise ship dock. Upstairs balcony seating affords an excellent view of the bustling Bay Street. All the Greek classics, and super friendly wait staff (Rashard 👍)
