“Delicious Greek food and a pleasant setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

I was surprised to find a Greek restaurant close to my mom's home town of Bretzenheim (a suburb of Mainz). We went there with our relatives back in May 2010, and I've been back twice since. The most recent visit was in January 2013 with my mom's cousins to celebrate a birthday. This time we each ordered our own meals (instead of one of the fantastic group meals) for a change of pace, and I was pleased again. Delicious meats and vegies (their salad is fantastic), a nice wine list to choose from, and a pleasant indoor seating area in the cold of winter. Knowledge of a few key German menu items will help you when choosing your meal. If your German is rusty (or non-existent?) simply look up a few key words for foods you enjoy, and you're sure to find it on their extensive menu. (If there are foods you really don't like - be sure you know how to recognize those too). Enjoy!

“A Charming Greek Restaurant Near the University”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2012

Excellent food, very good selection. Different, pleasant seating areas--we were able to sit outside on a balmy summer evening, but there is also a covered open seating area for a thundery day. And there is plenty of room inside, nicely decorated.
