Awesome food, great service, and the prices are not bad. Many choices for picky eaters. Keeps the cobblestone feel of river street, while giving you a taste of Greek food! Highly recommend.

We've dined here several times and never had a bad meal. The food is prepared fresh each time. The perfect spot for a great meal with the Savannah River flowing in front of it.

I think this was the best meal we had in Savannah. I love Greek food and they did not disappoint. We had the Falafel, Saganaki and Gyros. All excellent. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

The owner and staff always treat me like family. I have been coming to this place since 1999. The food is always fresh and the gelato awesome.

We've never had a disappointing meal and have entertained friends here on several occasions. The calamari dinner is our favorite dish - we have yet to taste better. The owner, Nick, is often seen circulating in the dining area and interacting with guests. His staff...More

I am so sorry just saw this message, I really don't know as I had lunch I would think they have website. Food was very good , and that says a lot for such a touristy place.
I didn't see any prices on the website menu. What kind of average prices are the meals here?

The Greek dishes are usually very simple and inexpensive, the prices are usually low and there are no surprises. Often when I travel I look for Greek restaurants, dishes simple and natural, to avoid the pasta dishes.
