On a heat wave day, we went inside for the a.c. The staff was friendly. The place was cute, small, cozy, nice. It was lunch time & the prices were reasonable. Cold mixed appetizers plate was very good, and the eggplant within was super. "Grilled" octopus was disappointing - small slices in a juice. We prefer charred whole tentacles ( Tarpon Springs style ). Mussels in red sauce were tasty, but sort of average - nothing special. Roasted lamb lunch platter was very good, and best of all was the mixed vegetables. They were so tasty, I could have eaten a plateful. BYO with no corkage is a plus.

I have driven by this place so many times and never paid any attention to the restaurant. We went last night for a Birthday part celebration. What a pleasant surprise. I had the mix grill and it was delicious!!!! I'm not a fan of lamb chops but these were delicious and I can't wait to go back. It's a very comfortable restaurant, low key and great good. If your visiting Philadelphia this summer this is a great place to experience Greek Cuisine. The restaurant is just blocks away from the art museum in a nice neighborhood

This was really delicious and wasn't meant to be a big deal. We shared the octopus hors d'oeuvre: it was spectacular. We should have gotten two. I had the lamb, which was excellent, and my daughter had the shrimp, which she found excellent. This is a find, a place to go back to. It was $72 for two, not counting wine, which you bring yourself.

Some of the best Greek food in the city! I had the lamb lunch plata no my wife had the chicken platter. Both great, but the chicken was better. Also we both had the avgolemono soup to start. Everything was delicious! Thanks
