The best place in Victoria to enjoy real Greek food. The moussaka is great, so is the lamb, the saganaki, and most of the food we tried there. The people are friendly, the service excellent, the atmosphere jovial and upbeat. You won’t be disappointed.

Food is good - what you would expect from an average quality Greek restaurant. Servers are friendly and accommodating. Atmosphere is casual and comfortable but nothing special. Average experience for an average price.

Dear trag51, I am pleased that you found the food was excellent as always, and staff were so much fun. Although you did inform me of your 50th anniversary over the phone when you booked your reservation, your server forgot to acknowledge it. I had...More
