They got us a table even though we didn't have a booking. The food was great. Service was good. Definitely check this place out.

Great proper Greek food. Fulfilling and extreemly good. Serious Mediterranean portions. Fairly priced and excellent service. Great place too. Greek lager beer is awful but this is potentially the best restaurant we've been too in 2 weeks in new Zealand. Great. Keep it up. Finding my name on the bill was also surprising.

Start with the Meze Platter it's great for sharing. The lamb souvlaki is my favorite and very generous. Top it off with a jug of granita, I never get to dessert but I hear it's delicious.
