Foursquare Tips

  • Eat in the garden out back. It's a wonderful little oasis!
  • The garden is the best place to sit. The food is sublime. During lunch hours they have the buffet and you can have a very good lunch for the price of 2 sandwiches in Midtown Manhattan
  • The garden outside is a hidden gem. Opa!
  • Authentic Greek- the lamb dishes are great
  • Come on Thursdays for the full on Greek experience! Live music and dancing. Opa!
  • Eat out in the garden area, beautiful meal.
  • This is a cool little place, the garden in the back is a must. Everything our party had was really good on the menu, so dont think you can go wrong.
  • Best Sunday brunch buffet! This restaurant is beautiful and delicious.
  • We have been eating here a long time. The food is great and the people are nice. You won't feel rushed. The lunch buffet is lovely.
  • First thing's first: the food is excellent. With menu items from various parts of Greece, it's a culinary tour. Owned by a Cypriot couple it has an authentic family feel to it. Highly recommended.
  • Delicious tzatziki and pita! The staff are so friendly! I would definitely go again.
  • Es deliciosa la comida y el servicio de diez probamos el bufet y exquisito todo
  • The Buffet for $12.95 is great. Food is excellent and their bread and fresh olive oil is tasty together. The garden seating is great and since I'm on vacation I will make my way back here one day.
  • Awesome food and atmosphere, get a table in the garden on Thursday night and dance
  • Shrimp simmered in tomatoes
  • Absolutely lovely, shaded back garden. Feels just like our trips to Greece.
  • Service is great! Food is okay, but desserts are a pass. Baklava has no layers. Our party ordered one of each and all were unimpressed.
  • Check out Taverna Cretekou as seen on Food Paradise
  • The grilled octopus is amazing!
  • Delicious Greek food and great atmosphere! Definitely eat in the garden when it's available!
