Dined here on a Friday night with 10 friends to celebrate a birthday. We never felt rushed and they accommodated us with friendly smiles and were happy to help us. Unfortunately I can't dietary restrictions and the owner (?) was so incredibly helpful and made a shrimp dish for me that was fantastic. The rest of the party had not... More

Party of 5. You go to the counter and order and pay. They deliver to the table.The giros were good. Pastisio was ok but not great. I had a lamb souvlaki which I ordered med rare. It was very well done. The tsaziki lacked flavor. The person who ordered chicken had to wait a very long time, we had to... More

I had the chicken souvlaki - chicken kabobs with potatoes (choice of fries, rice, or potatoes, I chose the potatoes). The chicken was cooked perfectly - a taste of the flame-broiled, moist, just perfect. The two kabobs were generous sized, and the potato portion was also generous. If my wife and I weren't quite as hungry, we would have done... More

Cafe Nostimo is a little out of the way off Route 1. It's also very casual, counter service, and no tablecloths. But the Greek cuisine is authentic and quite reasonably priced. You can buy a beer, eat to excess, and go home guilt free. It has a family atmosphere and a relaxing, low-light ambience. Nice find.

Always excellent quality portions and prices. Family run. Off the beaten tourist track. Discovered 4years ago and a favorite go to place. Great casual dining and kid friendly. Everything from lite bites to full dinners. If seafood lover Calamari dinner with Greek potatoes and Greek salad is huge,fresh, delicious.

This is the real deal! The food is authentic Greek, we have been looking for a good place since we moved here, this is it, the best Greek food I have eaten in many years. Don't miss this opportunity.

Six of us enjoyed a wonderful dinner for very reasonable price. The lamb shank is well prepared in a tomato base sauce. Souvlaki was well liked by all. Spanakopita was also delicious. Counter order. Delivered to your table. Wine is available. Music on Weekend nights.

My wife and I go there often. Last week we had the meatloaf special. I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed this meal. The bacon mashed potatoes and gravy was to die for,not to mention the whopping helping of mixed meatloaf.I guarantee this meal is a blockbuster and I just hope they have it again soon! Love this place... More
