We ate here because of the good reviews . They must have been written by the owner. We ordered the moussaka. After a long wait it arrived. On the plate was a lonely rectangle of moussaka , no vegetables or rice like other Greek restaurants....More

Lamb souvlaki and gyros were our favorite. Nicely filled pita. Nice environment. People were friendly and service was quick. On a nicer day the outdoor tables would be a definite plus.

The atmosphere was tastefully Greek. It was light and airy, sunny almost. The food was authentic and tasty. Portions were sufficient even for a man of 6'5" such as myself. Service was good as well. Wonderful spot! I look forward to eating there again!
