We had a very relaxing lunch on the terrace on the second floor. We had a chardonnay and a chianti by the glass with our seafood salads. Service was good.

We went there for family dinner. Everyone loves what they ordered. Stuffed butternut squash $17 dish is awesome. roasted garlic, rice, mixed veggie and fresh herbs. Their mezze are very filling, but drinks are a little expensive. It is really nice to sit outside in spring and summer. In winter, they have cover and heaters. We love going back so... More

Went here for an early weekend dinner as we had missed lunch. Very nice ambiance. We sat on the upstairs patio. Waiters very attentive. I had stuffed acorn squash. Very good, lots of flavor but not spicy ( I'm not a big fan of spicy hot food). My husband had lamb and said it was excellent. Nice marinated chunks, not... More

This is a one restaurant we often visited whenever we are in Pasadena, I highly suggest you to try their Santorini Meze, stuffed kubbe, Dee fried smelt, it's like savoring those dishes at Santorini, Greece. I highly recommend

Hit the sweet spot we were looking for...comfortable but still a sense of occasion; food was quite nicely done, mostly familiar dishes but each done with a touch of originality; per another review has a few greek items but really a composite mediterranean menu, some greek, some italian, some turkish...good wine list.

The location here is as good as the food. This restaurant is upstairs with an outside, rooftop dining, that overlooks a historic center square in Old Pasadena. The Mediterranean food is very good too. Interesting menu choices and great wine list.

Had dinner here with 4 colleagues. We had a ranges of cocktails, all of which were very good. The appetizer of the meze plates were also very good. The mains, however, were universally disappointing. Between us we had the wild mushroom risotto, the Tuscan chicken sausage risotto, the moussaka, the seafood linguine and a vegetarian pizza. All of the serves... More

The staff was very accommodating and seated a large party. The portions were large and reasonably priced. We expected more Greek food. More or it was Mediterranean. The food was tasty and well prepared but we were hoping for a larger variety of authentic Greek cuisine.

Went here prior to an event at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. It is close but perhaps not quite waking distance. Food was uniformly good. Standouts were the borek and spanakopita, grilled halloumi cheese with tomatoes delicious little olives, the bread, and the pizza. Moussaka was good but not to die for, being a little heavy on cinnamon and perhaps cardamom,... More
