This beautiful restaurant located in Lauderdale by the sea is amazing. The owner and manager are so friendly and the place is beautiful. The flaming cheese (saganaki) was my favorite and I loved their stuffed shrimp. I will definitely be returning!

We had octopus as an appetizer: really good. My daughter had a spinach dish, my wife had a salad and I had a grilled chicken pita. Everything was great and the outdoor-seating added to the experience.

Great Greek place! mostly Greek food but offers other options for people who may not want lamb chops, gyro's, cheese and such. Food was very good, service was a little slow, but they were busy.
