We were looking for an interesting restaurant, we saw their menu, we said why not. We split their double sampler plate, and we loved it.

I am a HUGE Greek food fan and this is my absolute favourite in Halifax. I love their vegetarian Moussaka (or their vegetarian platter to share). I'm obsessed with their tyrokafteri dip as a starter which is similar to the kopanisti dip at most other...More
