I've been to this restaurant a few times. Great food and good portions. Right in the heart of the Mill Ave. shops. It's worth stopping by for a bite to eat.

One of our 12 is Greek and just HAD to show us a great restaurant! We all appreciated it greatly! This is a very easy place to like, with a nice central position in Tempe. The Lemon soup started the meal, with salads following and grape leaves. I apologize for not using the proper names for each. The lamb chops... More

Heard about this place from a friend whose parents live in Tempe. Had lunch on 12/26, so was quiet and good service. Food was just okay. Pita Gyro, a little dry. The Aegean Club is HUGE. Real chicken breast, a bit thick and dry. Fettuccini alfredo was also just run of the mill. Flaming cheese was great. But with just... More

Something seems to have changed at this place. The place was usually packed, and the food good. We went there for dinner and the place was empty. The flaming saganaki was really bad: there was almost nothing on the plate, and what was there could not be scraped off the plate. The mousaka was also bad -- it was undercooked... More
