This is one of my favorite places to eat. The food is always great and the atmosphere is the same. The owner is usually there and makes sure you are happy.

I should have written this years ago... We've always a wonderful meal there. Ambience, service & food are top drawer. Love the family style menu options. Doggy bags are cheerfully provided & I swear it tastes even better as leftovers! The roast lamb is sublime.

Unique setting in Old Downtown. Bright Mediterranean colours inside felt warm and cozy on a bleak rainy day. Family of six adults went for lunch on a Tuesday in early January. The lamb was slow cooked and melt in the mouth tender. My sister had the Taste of Greece lunch special-a platter of small servings of about ten different menu... More

Each time I go to Asteras, the service is excellent and food exceptional. The owner often greets customers personally and is very welcoming. I spilled a glass of wine one nite and within minutes both the tablecloth and the wine were replaced. Highly recommend for both lunch and dinner.

Thank Peggy M
