This one of the best places to eat on river street. The food and service are wonderful and there is never a wait to get in. Their octopus starter is amazing! I've never had a bad meal here.

The sandwich board outside the front door caught our attention- "Greek food and fresh fish". We learned from our friendly and helpful waitress that their fish is always fresh, never frozen. The red snapper was super good as was their hummus and falafel.
