Its not worth the money. Their food all tastes the same, just seems nothing we tried was very good. You didn't get a very big portion either.

The best Greek style breakfast. The restaurant was clean and staff very friendly. The food was great. We went for breakfast, but the restaurant opens for dinner as well and has a very stacked bar. Again, the food was amazing.

Sorry, we had dinner there was not at the restaurant for Happy Hour, did not have alcohol because I was driving. But I thought the appetizer were reasonable.
Is there a happy hour? How is the cost of drinks?
