A typical Greek/Mediterranean menu in a very casual environment. The food quality was not consistent. The moussaka was quite tasty and well prepared, but the beef kabobs were dry and overcooked, and the gyros plate was just average. The tzatziki and baba ghannouj appetizers were...More

This is a very good Greek bistro with good atmospherics and very good food. We liked the falafel plate, the spanokopita, mousaka, and other standards. The service is attentive, and in decent weather, pretty common in San Diego, there is patio seating. We came the...More

A contender for the best Greek restaurant in Southern California, For 28 years, Apollonia (formerly Aesop's Tables) has been the destination of choice for La Jollans with an appetite for Greek delicacies. The restaurant has a handsome outdoor patio where shaded alfresco dining is delightful. Venture inside and you will find a charming ambiance in every dining room and in the beautiful lounge. The menu includes age-old favorites such as Dolmades and Moussaka, alongside some absolute surprises guaranteed to tantalize your adventurous curiosity. The menu offers many heart-healthy items prevalent in Greek cuisine and are suitable to those who follow a restricted diet yet like the joys of eating and the finer things of life. Apollonia's service is very friendly and as pleasant as the food.
