  • 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.
  • Seafood and lamb dishes.
  • Amazing restaurant if you want to feel like you are teleporting to Greece. Great seafood and wine. The ambiance makes you feel like you have travelled to another world. Thanks Denise!
  • Spanakopita is best Ive had at a restaurant. Yia yia soup is good. Shrimp with fried feta is great.
  • 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.
