We ate here on our fifth night on the island. We learned very early in the trip to never go to a restaurant in Antigua when you are hungry, for buy the time you actually get the food, you will be ready to eat the table! This place was no different, but well worth the wait. We ordered the sampler for 4 as recommended by our waiter. Stuffed grape leaves were amazing, spanakopita hot and flaky, goat-meatballs were light and spicy and the hummus and pita were fantastic! For dinner we had lamb shank! The meat fell off the bone and was delicious! They only have one dessert, baklava. Best we have ever had!! Dinner for four was around $240 with three bottles of wine included.

This has to be one of my favorite restaurants on island. The food is very very fresh and really tasty. i have never had a bad meal here. They do fantastic starters and often its hard to choose which one to have as they all make the mouth water, usually we end up going for a variety to share! Then the main courses are so delicious and tasty that once again its wise to share a couple of things just to get the best of both worlds and then you dont get food envy! My favourite is the meat loaf which is delicious followed by the chicken souvlaki, again delicious and you dont feel like you have eaten anything unhealthy! The waiter (who is the chef's son is very up on his wines so do ask him for a recommendation to go with the dishes you are ordering. I just can't wait to go back again!!

New restaurant recently relocated into Jolly Harbour. Lovely harbour side location in newly built outside area. We felt the place lacked atmosphere and the staff were rather unwelcoming. My wife asked if she could have a platter with a taster portion of the various Greek starters like humus etc.. This was not on the menu but the waitress said she could do it but when it came it was rather tasteless and all they had done was give her a full portion of each starter which meant the starter was far too big. When the bill arrived we had been billed for each one separately so the starter came to 65 EC$ plus ABST and service! Her fish main course was dry and flavourless. I had soup and moussaka which were quite good but not startling. Would not bother to go back.

A lovely restaurant, great ambience, service and food.
Linen tablecloths and serviettes make it place to go for a special meal.. Pleasant harbourside setting in tastefully constructed open air restaurant. The food and service are excellent. It is a family run business where you are made to feel welcome and special.
