The grouper gyro was fantastic! Perfectly seasoned, light crisp fry batter. Also, the lemon potatoes are just as good as the ones I had in Greece.

Very delicious, they really have the authentic Tzatziki Taste .... Lamb is very fresh. But be prepared for a Huge Bill from 15 to 35 USD just for the Mail plus Tax & Service

I have been visiting this restaurant for years which is owned by a Greek-Bahamian family. They also serve yummy Bahamian food in addition to Greek and I always depart wanting to return for more. Be sure to visit them when you tour downtown Nassau.

I can't find a menu online. Do you have vegan (no meat, dairy, eggs) options?

Hi! My husband, son and I visited your restaurant last week and had a wonderful lunch up on the balcony. We really enjoyed all the yummy food as we chatted with the owners daughter (our waitress) who was delightful! I wanted to let her know that I finally spoke to my relative about the "special food" we enjoyed in their home. So please pass along to her that it was Kolyva Wheat Berry Memorial Food. So delicious!
