This used to be one of the "go to"restaurants in Lauderdale by the Sea. I dont know what's happened. The crowds seem to have disappeared. Food is still good, love the Greek salad. The live music and dancing on the sidewalk in front still happens on weekends. Love that btw.. Hope they all come back

We were looking forward to dining here because we have tried every other restaurant in the area, it seemed like our waitress ignored us from the moment we arrived.(we were surprised because this is a greek restaurant & our waitress was greek so we figured she was family or someone who would take a little more pride in their culture)...

We found this to be a nice change of pace from the other Happy Hour places nearby for a quiet meal. I ordered lamb chops, which were done to perfection, and my husband ordered a seafood platter. This is not an inexpensive place, but the food was very good.

Eating outside in February makes anywhere feel special when you are on holiday from colder climates. We were helped by a friendly and supportive waitress. There was choice for The Vegetarian who enjoyed the hummus. Moussaka was good and helped down by a draft ale of which there were a few choices There is a good atmosphere and it benefits... More

It's located in the touristy area of Lauderdale by the sea. It has a very open air feel to it as the walls fold away to the outside and there is sufficient outdoor dining. I enjoyed a couple drinks sitting at the bar with back to the outside. The food was very good. Everything from the hummus and Pita which... More

We ate here just last week, and a year ago in January. Both times we sat outside (because dining outside in January just isn't done in Ohio!) and the seating was comfortable. This visit I got the roasted chicken and there was SO much food! Last year I had the fish and chips, and the portion was also very large.... More

The service was very good but we found the food a bit lacking in flavour. We would try it again some other time though.
