Sorry to hear, but as I reviewed the tables there is no order that matches this description. Every table over $200 has alcohol on the bill.

For a serious Greek food fix try Yianni's out. Friendly staff and located on Whyte Ave. in the fun part of town. Tasty food with overly generous portions, but it is not inexpensive so be aware.

Description
Yiannis serves Greek food that is inspired by traditional recipes and healthy living. Our chef, James Anast, tries to encompass every aspect of Greek cookery, from its inherent healthfulness, to its history and customs in our menu. We are located in our own building on trendy and historic Whyte Ave and have a warm and ambient room that evokes thoughts of the Mediterranean. To further enhance your dining experience there is belly-dancing on weekends and a beautiful Moroccan lounge in our lower floor for you to sip some tasty libations before or after your dinner.
