We love greek food but unfortunately this is not very authentic and has clearly been adapted for the US. The service was disappointing which is something you don't expect from a greek restaurant. Ambience was good when we went on a Wednesday night but that...More

The ambience of this restaurant is great. They have great food and wine selection. This place is good for couples as well as business get togethers. They open the roof during summer months which makes it even better. Highly recommend this place for greek food.

Lovely outdoor courtyard patio and the most delicious salad with perfectly grilled salmon. Love the bread. Close to downtown known as Greektown and also West-town. You'll feel like you're in Greece! Can't wait to go again!
