The meal is average prepared, served in a big portion. But the service is underneath the lousy. The was a woman with no respect; she seemed to hate what she was doing and was not caring about her job. It is something that simply can damage your night. Unfortunately I don't know/remember her name. Never more I will be there... More

I hadn't been there in several years and upon our visit, I was surprised to see how much the prices went up. It was probably more obvious because the new prices are written in pen over the old one. Some increases are very steep. The service could have been much better. We were never asked if we wanted to start... More

We ordered tzatziki and requested pita bread. We received a basket of garlic bread with some slices of pita bread. It was good and tasty. The tzatziki was delicious, very garlicky. For dinner, I had the chicken brochette. It came with a salad, rice and potatoes. My Partner has Chicken Souvlaki. It came with a tomato salad, rice and potatoes... More

Service was slow, it took time to seat us and food was slow coming out. As usual, the food was delicious. I had the chicken filet, my husband the fish and our friends the chicken souvlaki. Everyone was happy with their choices though I found the rice somewhat dry and bland. We probably will go again hoping service picks up.

Our family or four ordered the calamari, two sole dinners and a wrap. The sole was moist and fell apart with the fork, topped with a mild tomato sauce, heaps of rice, excellent roasted potatoes that were crispy on outside and soft on the inside. And a green salad with cucmbers and romaine dressed in an oil and vinegar vinagrette... More

I used to go to this restaurant quite often twenty odd years ago as I lived in the area so I was excited when my spouse suggested a greek-style restaurant for our date night! We were seated right away on a fairly busy Saturday night. We ordered the Pikilia for two, an assortment of Greek appetizers, a half litre of... More

I had the chicken souvlaki with pita(no onions) and my hubby had the chicken souvalki platter. My husband did not want the rice or potatoes so they were able to give him all Greek salad. N problem at all with both of our requests. Not sure if I was expecting more but there were no cucumbers in the salad, I... More

I had chicken souvlaki and the chicken was a little dry. The potatoes lacked flavor and the tomatoes were only good because they were with 2 tiny pieces of feta cheese. This place needs a face lift - especially the bathrooms. I always judge a restaurant by the cleanliness of the bathroom and this one failed. It may be that... More
