Located on Merchant Street, this Greek restaurant is refreshing and delicious. I had tzaziki, horiatiki salad one day and returned a few days later to try other items on the menu. Very satisfying and owned by a kind Greek family.

I was amazed because the resturant doesn't look like much. The food was great and my friend and I really enjoyed the evening. We ordered several dishes and shared it. I recommend lots of feta cheese and tzatziki.
