Excellent Greek cuisine, top quality products and innovative preparations with here and there reference to the great classical dishes. Top wine list. Do not hesitate to ask some advice if you do not read Greek nor know their cuisine and wines: the service is excellent.

The best Greek restaurant in Brussels, for my taste. All plates were tasteful and well presented. You should try the Bifteki, Gamopilafo, Kritharoto and the all deserts. Personnel was very polite and professional. The decoration and environment were great. Fair prices.
