We were looking for a good Greek restaurant and we're delighted to find this gem recommended by TripAdvisor as well as by our hotel. We were not disappointed.
My grandson(4 yrs. old) loves muscles, calimari, octopus, and other fish dishes. So we asked for a few recommendations from our owner waiter. We started with an appetizer plate that included muscles, a shrimp spread, an eggplant spread, lamb, pita, and a few other taste treats. Then for our shared entrees we ordered the octopus special which was perfectly and tenderly cooked with tomatoes and julienned vegetables, a lamb dish with sautéed vegetables, and a seafood risotto that included the most tender, melt in your mouth calimari. A side salad was included, and we had one beer, and the ladies had a great Tempranillo. Grandson had a cherry drink. We loved every morsel of food.
The restaurant has an out door seating area, but we chose to sit down stairs in a warm wine. feller atmosphere, where we could keep an eye on the espresso machine. There is lovely photography on the walls of stars of the forties, and a number of modern touches.
When we asked for the check, the owner brought us a complimentary glass of mango liqueur. What a perfect ending for a perfect dinner.

My evening @ YGREC a Greek island in the middle of Ludwigsburg. Read and make up your mind...I had a wonderful evening.

The WELCOME...
Entering the restaurant downstairs in in the old cellar with wonderful and modern decoration. The first impression is a warm atmosphere which is as well the welcome of the staff.
Wednesday evening and the restaurant is quite busy but the separation in different areas of the cellar gives you everywhere a comfortable and quiet atmosphere.

My COURSES...
Starting with a small surprise from the kitchen and a friendly welcome of an authentic Greek host...feels like Greece...
The starter is a salad with grilled anchovies. I order it without the goats cheese - not a problem at all.
The main is a slow cooked lamb with sesame and sides. Immediately suggested to get it with a slightly different sauce without cheese if I'm allergic. Thanks :-) and it came perfectly cooked and really aromatic.
All goes down with an excellent red house wine. Full body and well served in a proper glass and the right temperature.
To finish a Greek Mokka. You got to like it but if you are a fan you could fall in love with it.
And - to digest or just enjoy - a Grappa or Ouzo on the house.

The RATING...
Atmosphere is great, comfortable, warm and friendly.
The staff well trained, open eyes and really authentic :-)
The food just great. Greek food in excellence.
And everything well decorated, portioned and priced.

And eating alone doesn't feel like if you are eating @ YGREC.

Lovely little restaurant.
Has a great atmosphere, good menu and really nice staff - almost a 'family' feel to it.
Recommend the sardine starter with some greek black olives and grilled bread. Follow it all up with any of the steak dishes.
Just fab !
