This is about as authentic Greek as you're gonna get in Southern California. Its a nice, rustic, European, Greek spot that has delicious food. Its fun to walk around the shopping area after dinner or lunch and soak in the Malibu Beach vibe.

Food was delicious, we had the sampler and absolutely everything was perfect. Service was also pretty good and ambiance was relaxed. Would definitely go back there when in California.

I started coming here when they first opened in '94 I think and still love it.

I've had a great time every visit. It's not cheap but it has good food and great atmosphere. I always feel like I'm on vacation in the Mediterranean. There is just something about this place that makes me happy.

Two of my favorite things:

- Flaming Saganaki
- Shrimp Pasilmani (def spelled wrong)

I saw a reviewer complain about the octopus. I love octopus and order it almost every time I see it on a menu. Until I read that I forgot about having to send it back once because it was overcooked. It is not baby octopus. I don't think it says that it is in the menu. It's usually nice. It's not the best I've had but definitely good enough that I order it fairly regularly. I'm pretty picky though.

FYI This is not a fancy place. It is more home-style Greek cooking.

Taking a tip from other readers about portion sizes the four of us shared two entrees and a big salad along with destroying the free appetiser with yummy fresh bread. Worked out fine for a light dinner. Loved the moussaka & the roasted lamb.

Ate on the patio, which is much quieter than the noisy interior. Brought our own bottle of Pinot noir & gladly ate the $20 corkage fee to avoid the rather ordinary & over priced wine list.
