Ate here twice, octopus was so good, had it again second time. Service friendly, reasonable value. The whole fish was excellent.

We weren't going to go in as it wasn't crowded and all the neighboring restaurants were. A local we spoke to talked it up and we went in and were not impressed.

We had octopus as an appetizer: really good. My daughter had a spinach dish, my wife had a salad and I had a grilled chicken pita. Everything was great and the outdoor-seating added to the experience.

Great Greek place! mostly Greek food but offers other options for people who may not want lamb chops, gyro's, cheese and such. Food was very good, service was a little slow, but they were busy.

Located on the corner of A1A & Commercial in the middle of the Town Center. Food is very well prepared and not as pricey as Greek Restaurants further South on A1A. Lamb Chops excellent and done to perfection.

Sorry, we had dinner there was not at the restaurant for Happy Hour, did not have alcohol because I was driving. But I thought the appetizer were reasonable.
Is there a happy hour? How is the cost of drinks?
