We love Greek and will try establishments when we travel. We ordered the Sampler, a bit pricey @ $19.00, but worth it. The Sampler was wonderful, hot fresh and tasted homemade. The Tziki is bland which is a nice compliment to the flavor explosion of the other items. The meatballs were wonderful. On to the main course. We ordered Gyros with extra meat. The menu clearly states it is a beef-lamb mix. I have read reviews complaining this is not authentic. When you purchase a combo, it has to be processed meat. It was good. It offered a consistent flavor and they gave us about 10 slices. We enjoyed it. If you want something more homemade I would suggest the kabobs.

In new quarters, the restaurant has a clean and spacious dining room. The staff seems new, young, eager and enthusiastic if not experienced. We started with saganaki, which was absolutely delicious with the Greek merlot. My husband enjoyed the meat lovers platter, a huge entree with tasty meatballs, highly seasoned sausage, standard gyros-joint meat, and fairly tender chicken and beef kebabs, served with pita and not enough tzatziki sauce. I had the combination plate with pastitsio, moussaka and spanakopita. Neither of the three tasted exactly how I was used to the dishes tasting in Chicago's Greek town, but the spinach cheese pie was really flavorful, as was the moussaka. The bechamel sauce is rather fluffy. Only the pastitsio disappointed, the noodles being chewy and tough.
The tab for one appetiser, one bottle of wine, and these two combo plates came to over $100.
It's the closest to authentic Greek I've had in Hampton Roads, so we'll be returning.

The food was good, atmosphere was good and the waitress was very nice. Problem is the restaurant is hidden in the back of a building and street advertising in almost non-existent. Add to that the road work being done and you kinda have to know its there or you'll miss it

We very nice interior, great service, and the food was really good. Highly recommend getting a bunch of different plates for the table. It was a nice respite from the dirty, grungy places at the beach.

Arrived early for brunch! First people there, so we received extra attention from the staff. However as others arrived, they seems to get an equal amount.

I had a gyro which was excellent! The meat was moist and tender, not dried out like I have had many times. Excellent sauce and fresh greens and vegetables. My husband had moussaka which he said was delicious. Our server Alfiya was knowledgeable and helpful. Following our meal the owner's daughter came over to ask about our meal. She was friendly and informative. Excellent Bloody Mary's , reasonable prices and attentive wait staff makes this location a definite return spot for Sunday brunch!!
