Inside and outside dining. Late lunch sharing plates. We shared the Carpuzzi (Watermelon) Salad with tomatoes, feta, mint and honey dressing. This salad is a must, especially on a warm day, the honey is amazing. We also shared the Octopus and Fried Calamari, both tender and delicious.They brought bread and some Skordialia dip. Save some bread to dip into other... More

To be fair I must say the waitresses were all super nice, friendly. The restaurant itself is very nice! BUT the food is well below average, not at all what you expect from a Greek restaurant. Mezes are tasteless, the flatbread gyros is a joke. And by the way 13 Dollars for 3cl of Ouzo...no comment.

Amazing location, delicious food. They even offered a vegan option, that was actually really good. Service was also very good. A lot of different menu options. Greek yogurt for dessert is to die for.

Ate here this evening with family and friends. I had their signature dish, the rack of lamb, which was very good. My wife tried the Moussaka which she reports as OK, just OK. It had a lot of mince and cheese but not much else. Not recommended! The others are the meat balls which were delicious . The price was... More

I was mortified when friends suggested Greek...but this was actually Greek with a little bit of californian influence I think, so , as well as traditional greek dishes, there were a few more 'plain' options, and the staff were more than happy to make any changes if asked. The staff were actually so friendly and so smiley i was dazzled... More

Wonderful, locally sourced food, expertly prepared and presented, with all the nuanced flavors and aromas you expect from a seaside taverna in the Cyclades.....

Four of us tried a variety of dishes, from appetizers to entrees to desserts. The food was not fresh, and definitely not Greek. I've lived in Athens and Thessaloniki, and visited many other regions in Greece. I've never seen, or tasted, food like this. The mousaka didn't appear to have any layers of eggplant or potato and was just a... More

This was my first time here but it is a friend's favorite in Manhattan Beach. The service was absolutely first rate but it was not a busy night. We sat outside which was really nice and I recommend it. They have an extensive menu with something for everyone. The food was fresh, flavorful and well presented. The portions are on... More

Nothing against Greeks, I love Greeks; but most Greek restaurants I've been to are very ordinary. Not this one. The dishes are high quality and carefully prepared to give you the taste and flavors of fine Greek food. Petros is very popular, so reservations are a good idea. You are close to the beach, but this is not a beach-type... More

On a Saturday evening the restaurant was packed with beautiful people. The wait staff was friendly but not very available. I've eaten in quiet a lot of Greek restaurants and I found the food to be average. The prices, on the other hand were not average.
