Very nice funky family business, and some nights the family (Greek ?of course)perform.. I have never bothered to reserve, but my family likes to go out around 5:00 and it always gets busy. Great food is the key and also for lunch.

We have eaten here several time, really good food and staff. The only negative are the acoustics. It is always busy and very noisy, hard to have a conversation.

The food was really quite good. The staff were excellent. We just thought it was a little pricey for what you get.

With our a doubt one of the top restaurants serving mainly Greek dishes, with a few Italian meals, and even chicken fingers for those not inclined to either of these to foods. The restaurant is family owned and many of the servers have been there...More

Excellent evening - it's the lamb !! But mainly it's Maria's careful hand on the cooking pot - no mass production here - the real deal. Lively and cheerful atmosphere - watch out for breaking plates - slam!!!
