No idea what's happening here. Nice outdoor area, just off lake Merritt. Messy bathroom... one server, wouldn't eat there after having one drink outside.

They served up huge portions (brought food home) of traditional Greek dishes in a very cute atmosphere. Server was as charming as he could be, and we spoke a little Greek with him. Very popular spot with the diverse Oakland crowd. Very cool. Emphasis on the traditional. Very good buy.

A "go to" place for a wide variety of Greek dishes. Everything very authentic and well prepared. Staff is friendly and accommodating. It can be crowded, but is definitely worth the wait.

It was our first outing on a visit with my daughter. We expect her to take us out for a great experience. The food was very good and a nice atmosphere but a pretty small place. Suggest getting there before the dinner hour. We had Kopanisti, Kalamari, Lamb Souvlakia, Gyro and Tzatziki. All very good.

I am used to really good Greek food from my home town, so I am very picky. I have had their Gyros & Moussaka - both were great. But the Gyros was tops. Many places that offer Mediterranean food are not realy Greek. This is the real deal.

We were going to the Grand Lake, and were just looking for some place close to grab a bite. Saw the menu outside and decided to risk it. (Fortune favors the bold you know) What a delightful surprise! First off the waiter (wait staff? server? attendee?) The young male who greeted us and took our orders, was so charming....and this... More

Everything here is typically Greek even the beer. All the dishes we tried were a notch above everything else we tasted in other Greek restaurant. there is pride in what they offer

I've been here a few times with my father when I've been in town for a visit. I like the grape leaves and the desserts are pretty good, too.
