Only three nights in our New York stay and ate there twice. That says it all. First night: Melintzanosalata and calamarakia tiganita to start, a large horiatiki salata, and biftekia, washed down with a carafe of Retsina, then a coffee and baklava to finish. Second...More

It's hard to get really great Greek food in Manhattan for a reasonable price. This is a great option especially at lunch when they have $10 specials. Friendly staff here and a great, casual atmosphere. I get the gyro platter every time. YUM.

Two of us had the grilled swordfish platter. Interesting side dish of stewed vegetables and potatoes. The swordfish was tender and delicious.

Haven't been here since I was a kid with my family - probably 30+ years. As a Greek I was a little put off that there were virtually no Greeks present running the restaurant - rather they were mostly Hispanic. To my pleasant surprise all...More

We enjoyed a good meal made up of several small plates. Fun atmosphere. Many filled tables of friendly people eating and drinking wine.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
