Authentic Greek food with lots of flavor. Very reasonable prices and outstanding service. Their Greek Village Salad has the most succulent dressing which is available for sale. We visit everytime we are in Bellingham and are never disappointed.

And it was yummy! Meat fell of the bone as promised. Tastily spiced, served with Greek roast potatoes (or you could have rice). Also came with a large Greek salad and garlic bread, which I would have preferred warm. Dessert was a decadent Tiramisu.
