I can't believe it took us over 15 years to find this wonderful restaurant! Tucked away in a shopping center across from Michael's, you would never know from the outside what a treasure awaits within! All the food is homemade each day (oh, the spanakopita!)...More

We enjoyed last night's dinner. This was my first time. The restaurant is a little hard to find. It's in a small shopping center but it's worth the effort. We had the Arni Youvetsi (lamb shank), Psari Skaras (tilapia) and Moussaka. All were very good...More

We felt like we were welcomed to their home. We love Greek food but don't know a lot about it. Our waitress walked us through the menu. It was delicious. Topped off the meal with Greek coffee and Baklava. Amazing stuff.

From the warm welcome at the door, to the excellent service and menu, this family owned cafe is the perfect spot for authentic Greek cuisine. The decor and hospitality are genuine. The food is delicious and the portions are generous. My guilty pleasure is Moussaka......More

The Greek food, charming decor and service make this our favorite place. It's festive and each time we go we feel like we've had a nice night out. If we bring the family, we order the special cheese appetizer that's served on fire and the...More

We went for dinner with two other couples (based on one couples' recommendation-they're "regulars" there) and they were spot on! This is a wonderful, family run restaurant with exceptional Greek food. My wife was looking forward to the Dolmadakia Plate but was disappointed that it...More
