It may my imagination, but I think this place has gone downhill. I had the spanikopita, which was OK, but nothing special. The potatoes were roasted to the point of almost begin the texture of french fries, and were served with ketchup(!?). My husband had the shrimp kabobs with rice, and he was also unimpressed.

We enjoyed stopping here for lunch. Service was prompt and the food was above average. We had our dog with us and there was no problem with him being at our table. This is on The Strand. I didn't think it was overpriced for the amount of food that was served. The Gyro was stuffed and very tasty, and the... More

I had the special which was chicken, vegetables with Tzatziki Sauce and my husband had the Gyro. Awesome! We eat gluten free and they substituted the pita with veggies!

Was sitting outside and was told not to sit at tables without being asked if we wanted anything. Went next door to Brews Brothers and had an EXCELLENT craft beer

Found this place on Trip Advisor as we were looking for Greek food or salads. Yum! Though we were the only ones there at first, others came in so it didn't feel as empty. I got a salad with tabbouleh on top and baba ghanoush on side (it came with hummus but they were accommodating with a substitution request). The... More

This is a casual and wonderful place for Mediterranean classics! The platter filled with appetizers makes for a perfect dinner. Moussaka was delicious and the service was perfect! Highly recommend!

The most incredible meal I have had that was out of the norm. My husband and I talked about how good it was all day

We came to Galveston for a day trip just to get out of the house thinking it would be a slow day. To our surprise the Yaga Chili and Beer fest was going on at the Strand. We walked up and down the Strand twice looking for a place to eat besides burgers and had a family/kid friendly menu for... More

My friend and I came here for dinner one evening. He had been there before; this was my first time. We ordered a platter with samples of a few different things. It was awesome! I would eat there again! The restaurant was empty, but likely because the weather was not very pleasant that weekday evening (cold and windy). Friendly restaurant... More
