To my surprise it was not busy however, the food was amazing . The owner Pam made us feel very comfortable and all the food is prepared on the day. The restaurant is a fair distance from anywhere but it is worth the drive.

We come here every week for dinner and it is always awesome. The food is very good, always with that home cooked taste. We love the relaxed and friendly atmosphere that Pam and Ash create. Do yourself a favour and stop in. You won't regret it.

Just a bit out of town this restaurant has excellent service and fresh plentiful meals. While it is a Greek restaurant you will find the menu is more aligned with Australian cuisine. I would have welcomed more traditional Greek items on the menu. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly without being "in your face".

A group of 20 booked this restaurant for a Sunday lunch and arranged for a Greek menu. It was a fantastic day and the cost just $25 a head. We were served Greek salad, crusty bread, mixed vegetables, chicken on rice, lamb and a choice of 3 desserts. The food was tasty, the service great and the staff super friendly..... More

This place is awesome. The food is tasty and authentic, if you are really hungry make sure you have the chefs special. They just keep bringing food out until you can't eat anymore. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Well worth the visit.

Enjoyed a lovely brekky of Haloumi, tomato, bacon, eggs and toast. Both our plates were overflowing. The food was beautifully cooked. As well as abundant. Make sure you bring your appetite. The price was very reasonable. Pam was lovely and makes a good coffee.

We went again on Saturday night....everything about this place is still brilliant. Food and service great and excellent value for money. Hubbie said his pepper steak was the best he had ever had. We'll be going again soon.

We booked for dinner and they allowed me to bring my own wine. If you want moussaka then you need to request when you make a booking. My husband had flounder (delicious) and I had the rissoles. Pre dinner we had the bread and tsatiski dip. They also give you a salad and then vegetables with your main plus a... More
