This is a very good Greek restaurant, our dishes were all tasty, good value and service. There were local guitar players playing authentic Greek music which was really nice. Recommended for an authentic Greek evening.

We went here twice during the week we were here. We just loved the owner Speros (not sure on spelling) he was so passionate about the restaurant and making sure his patrons had a pleasant experience. Setting, live music, and food were absolutely amazing.
