The food is basic but cooked well. The fried whiting is a must. It was delicious and moist. The only let down was the poor service. A smile and chat to your customers would go a long way.

The food is extraordinary! The portions are worth the price. If you're are a light eater, you can split a meal with no problem. The nice touch and great idea of management is a nice FREE pour of wine when your waiting on lines.

Best grilled octopus ever! My suggestion is to go during the summer when there’s more seating bc they open the outside tables. Also lunch is typically not as crowded as dinner

This is one of the iconic Greek restaurants of Astoria and as such is very popular. The problem is they don't take reservations. So my friend and I showed up at 7:30 on a Friday and they took my text number and we went to...More
