We went there after busy day sightseeing in central Brussels because was close to our hotel. Restaurant is located near Brussels Midi Station. Great greek family business, authentic, delicious food. No one speak english but it wasn't a problem to choose something from menu. They are famous by ribs. Great value for money (€35 with starter to share, two mains and vino).

This is a laid back gem in a untouristed neighborhood. Five of us and an infant were brought immediately to a table. No reservations, no problem. There is home cooked goodness, pleasant warm interior and super efficient service. We had a Cold Meze platter offering a mixture of Greek chesse, olives, dolmalthes, taramasalata, tatziki and sausages. We had well prepared calamares, tasty short ribs, lamb chops, scampi and an order of moussaka washed down by acceptable red and white house wine. Frites, of course, on the side (it's Belgium so it's expected). French or Greek only, but we had absolutely no trouble communicating. All for €95! Well worth it.

Our family of five was fed quickly and we enjoyed every dish. The kids liked visiting the parrot that was in the corner, and we were comfortable where we were seated. We had the cold entree plate, spare ribs, moussaka, calamari, and french fries. All were fresh and delicious. The moussaka even tricked my kids into eating eggplant. The value was probably the best we found on our short visit to Brussels and I would return if we were ever in the area.

Chose calamari and veal, was extremely quick to get out of the kitchen. Friendly Greek staff so you know it's genuine. Would recommend if in the area as its very close to the Gare du Midi.

When we lived in Brussels we loved this little restaurant, thus going almost weekly there. Therefore it was clear to us going back when being back. And we where not at all disappointed.

Their Petit-Os (Spare Ribs) are really a class of its own, juicy and well seasoned. Their french fries are fresh and tasty and their salad is Greek at its best. Excellent value-for-money without any doubt.

Unfortunately we ordered Kormo (Greek sweet) for finishing the evening. It was good but had a bit stale taste (like having been to long in the fridge). This was the only dish not to be recommended.

Nevertheless, the dining experience was excellent.
