The chicken souvlaki is delicious as are the Greek potatoes! Portions are generous. Staff was gracious and helpful with menu. We will be back.

The setting seem very nice at first. But then we were seated by a waitress who was very abrupt, she might have just been having a bad day but seemed more irritated by every exchange as the meal progressed. When I asked for the bill she was quite passive-aggressive . As for the food, souvlaki and salad, the salad had... More

This restaurant offers inviting decor as well as large servings of flavourful food. The only noticeable room for improvement was the server. She could really do with some training on cheerfulness & helpful interactions with clients.

Met friends for lunch and am looking forward to going again. Veg moussaka was a big hit at the table. Excellent portion sizes. Try their special coffee.

Food was pretty good (too many carbs with rice and potatoes on the plate). Waitress' skills left a lot to be desired - no smile, no asking if meal was ok, if we needed anything else like more coffee etc. Highlight was when one of us (4 females) asked for the baklava to be heated and she said "if I...

I was visiting from British Columbia and I stopped in to try the food. I was amazed at how delicious and flavourful the dishes were. The owner and head chef, Andreas, has a gift for cooking the best medditeranean food I've tried in North America. The portions were big, the food was cooked perfectly and the prices were very reasonable.... More

We looked for a restaurant that was not far away and had plenty of parking. The food was very good and we received outstanding service. We certainly will go back to this restaurant again.

We had the Saganaki as an appetizer. It was delicious, the pita was nice and hot. We than had the Mediterraneo platter, which had pork and chicken souvlaki skewers, 2 lamb chops, potatoes, veggies and rice. It also came with a moussaka. The moussaka was very heavy, too much butter. The meat was dry. The food was tasty but buttery... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Waterloo. It is very Greek, and the food is always outstanding. Been here many times and have never, ever had a sub-par meal. The food is made freash and delicious, tzatziki is made fresh in house, and it is an incredible value for how much food you get. Every time I order a single... More
