A must. You have to try a lamb chop and the very fresh fish cooked to perfection. The owner remains very involved w/the business and is a pleasure. Lots of pride in what they do here.

I felt like I was in Athens again....Such a nice place. You can tell that everything cooked there is handmade...We tried the octopus...out of this world and the fish (red snapper) another wonderful dish to try.

You can do the walking by the river and around 7:30 come over for diner. Open until 10. Wonderful staff and the owner a really, really nice guy.

Absolutely wonderful food, from lamb shank to Greek pizza and everything in between. The dolmades will almost make you weep. The spanakopita is both light and creamy. Mr. Nick, the owner, is a great host. With an ice cream shop attached, but a serious Greek restaurant.

Everything we had was really great there. The snapper for two is truly more than two can eat and was cooker perfectly, The veggies were fantastic and the coffee was good and strong. The owner was passionate about what was going on. At first I was concerned that he was arguing with the employees and it was putting me off until the waitress told me it was common and that some of the guests looked forward to it.

Finally a gyro very close to the decisions ones we had in Athens, Greece. Bread was terrific, meat was flavorful, take out service was quick.
