The restaurant has lots of parking, and the decor is inviting. The seats are comfortable, too. The food is excellent. They go easy on the garlic, because the food already has a lot of flavour. The service was first rate, too. All in all, a...very nice experience.More

Visited as part of a group of 6 family members. We did not have a good meal. Orders included tzatziki, moussaka, shrimp dinner, battered haddock and the chicken special. The tzatziki was good. The moussaka was not good, the shrimp was terrible: severely overcooked with...the shells so fused to the shrimp that they would not come off, the battered haddock was not good: dry and looked like cheap frozen fish, the chicken special was good but the chicken was rubbery like it had been reheated. Our server was friendly and, although she seemed to be new to her job, did well. We will not return or recommend to others.More

Mediocre. Beer selection was minimal. The Moussaka was quite bitter and insipid. The salmon not seasoned at all. Lemon soup not lemony. The grilled calamari were very thick pieces of meat.

Very busy and somewhat slow but we were there on a holiday. Waitress was very nice and the food was really good. Will go back for sure.

Great casual style restaurant. Server made us feel welcome and at home. Has a nice atmospher, especially sitting by the window. It was a late lunch or early supper. The restaurant was not busy and we weren't in a hurry. The food is excellent and...there are a number of tempting choices.More

Stopped here for lunch on the way thru Kingston. For starters we ordered the hummus with pita. The waitress was kind enough to offer grilled bread as well, in case we run out of pita. Very thoughtful of her. Hummus was delicious. Husband got the...gyro with rice. I had the mediterranean chicken with rice. Both meals came out quickly and were hot and tasty. Good portion size. They have lot of mixed drinks, although, we did not have any at this visit. Food was reasonably priced.More

We had the garlic shrimp meal and the dolmadakia. Both were excellent and we added a couple of beers to the meal. Service was good. This is a good place for dinner.

When this restaurant first opened years ago, we tried it. Unfortunately, we did not enjoy our meals so did not go back. We recently heard rave reviews from friends so we decided to return We are so glad we did! The food was delicious. My...husband had the Pastitio and I had a seafood salad. Both were absolutely delicious We certainly will be back! The menu is varied with numerous authentic Greek dishes so we will return soon and try some other items on the menu. We also loved the decor that made us feel as if we made a quick trip to Greece.More

Burnt food. Salad was the only palatable part of the meal. What seemed to be boxed instant rice. Soggy roast potatoes. Vastly overpriced. Staff was attentive and sympathetic. Avoid at all costs.

It has been many years since we visited this restaurant. We were here when it first opened and were not happy with the food. Four friends asked us to go. We're glad we went. There was a party crowd at the back and this made...for a boisterous atmosphere, but not overwhelming. It did slow the kitchen down and the parking lot was full. Each of our group had different dishes, Seaside salads to pasta's to traditional Greek. Most enjoyed their meal. The waitperson had a great sense of humour and we were well served.More

My husband and I were passing through the area while driving, and as it was approaching lunchtime he started looking on the Internet for places in the area. He has a knack for finding great restaurants, and it couldn't be more true with this place....It turned out to be the best Greek restaurant we have dine at anywhere. We started with the Keftedakia appetizer, which was delicious. However, I would like to point out that as good as this dish was, we were glad that we got it as the appetizer rather than the main course because it is more like an appetizer item. I got the Greek salad which was very good, especially the smaller salad. My husband got the soup of the day which was potato bacon. He thought it was fantastic. For the main course, we both chose the Cypriot Pasta, which was spaghetti. It was outstanding also, and came with wonderful toasted garlic bread. I ordered a Baklava for dessert. Very good, and unique flavor. We would definitely return when in the area. The waitress was excellent, and she kept checking back. Their two murals were beautiful.More

My family and I were driving from Ottawa to Toronto and were in the mood for a good Greek dinner and we chose this restaurant due to the good reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant exceeded our expectations. The food is authentic and delicious. The decor...is absolutely Greek and I admire the efforts the owners have made to design the restaurant in such beautiful and authentic way. The service was wonderful. Tara was an excellent waitress who should be commended for her professionalism and kindness. And did I mention that the good is AMAZING! : ) I can't wait to go back! I need any excuse to go back to Kingston! After our dinner, my children said how happy they were that they now had a "Kingston restaurant."More

Get take out all the time and am always happy but ate in the other night. As in the mood for lasagna & it was good. A little to much tomato sauce for my taste but have had worse. The salads are great, wraps terrific...& the desserts, what can I say, to die for. Highly recommend this place.More
