The owner/chef cooks his food with love and adds his special touches to create a delicious surprise. The portions are very generous and the food is outstanding. His homemade soups are wonderful as well as his fresh fish specials. My husband loves the lamb burgers. The french fries served in a wire basket are fresh and delicious. The salads are huge, I would suggest a small. Everyone is served fresh from the oven toasted pita with a hummus or eggplant dip. There are great vegetarian options and you have to try the custard pie.

This place is a real find! The staff is top notch and we loved this cozy nicely decorated place. The egg plant appetizer is so unique and delicious. The chicken egg soup is supreme. I recommend their moussaka because theirs is very fresh. Even the Greek salad is the best. We had no room for dessert so will have to return again to sample.

I will not put in a review to a restaurant unless I have been there at least 3 times. When we first started eating at this restaurant it was excellent. After, it seems either the owner changed hands, or not being there is affecting the quality. It is obvious the amount of food they use in there products have lessened (the chicken in the gyros is very noticeable). The place is very small, but quant. The prices increased as well. You can bring young children, but again it is very small. The parking as well, as it shared a lot with a few other establishments. Make sure to order your french fries plain if you don't like the greek seasoning, as well as the lettuce on the gyro, very over seasoned. A big plus, they give you pita with hummus to start your meal, and its free. Always ask for ice in your water, or you won't get any. The service is ok, not that friendly. The cashier girl even less friendly, she answers the phone, so be prepared, if taking out an order. The steak meal is excellent, love the taste and tenderness of the meat. Hope this helps if you plan to go there..oh yea, bring your wine or alcohol, they will help put it on ice.

I really don't want to write a review because I've been coming here for over 6 years and I want to keep it to myself!!! BUT.. This restaurant is AMAZING.. Either lunch or dinner, you won't be disappointed.. everything is the freshest and best quality right down to the cherry tomatoes in the greek salad. And the grilled octopus is outstanding. Fish is cooked perfectly everytime you go. Can't say enough abou the food and the service is always on point. BYOB makes it a sure hit !!!
