The food is excellent. The restaurant is set back in a shopping center so there is no view. We were looking for a place to eat healthy. We had an appetizer, salad, the gumbo, and a child's plate. Very friendly wait staff.

If you like greek, you gotta go here. This place is awesome. Very authentic and the food is amazing. Highly recommend. My only complaint is those extra tiny wine glasses. Spend the money and upgrade to a bigger glass. It truly makes a difference instead of a tiny glass filled to the top.

The food is OK, not even good or great. Unfortunately, like so many places on the Seawall in Galveston it is extremely overpriced for what you get. The grilled octopus was not worth getting: it was very fishy smelling. The hummus is very good with heavy garlic flavor, but they give you what seems like 1/2 a pita to eat... More

Very good food at reasonable prices. Very close to the Holiday Inn Resort on Seawall so an easy walk if staying there. I had the beef tenderloin pita dish and it was excellent.

I chose this restaurant because of all the positive reviews that it had on this site and I was not disappointed. The food was very enique and dilecious. We ate outside and had a wonderful view. The staff was very informative and the belly dancer was an added treat. I would recommend anything with crabmeat. It tasted very fresh and... More

Stop in just before closing (did not realize it was so late), but you could not tell from the level of service we received. The waiter was spot on, and the food was very good. The Zeus Appetizer was very large, and it was a great start to the meal. We will be returning when we go back down to... More

We walked there from the Holiday Inn Express next door. The happy hour was good and inexpensive. we had gyro tacos (awesome), chicken kabob (good) and fried pickles (average). Service was not good and the server tried to get away with charging full price on the drinks. Food was decent, happy hour deals are good, location for us was great... More

Food is great every time we visit... Good variety... Friendly service. Great location. All of the Greek food we have tried has been great and reminds me of the food my Greek Grandma use to make. My husband loves the pizzas.. They are topped with fresh delicious meats, veggies and cheese.
