“I love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

Location - poor, interior - poor, atmosphere - better make your own.... but the ambiance of lovely servers and to die for food makes it worthy to drive many miles ( which I fortunately don't have to!)
Don't miss the romaine salad and my absolute favorite - chicken souvlaki - marinated grilled morsels served with delicious tatziki and pita bread.

“Great Greek food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

I am Greek and this is the best Greek food I've had since visiting Greece. Service is super friendly. Very accommodating to vegetarians. Decor is nothing fancy--you're going for the food. Highly recommend.

“Gem of a family restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Best Greek food in Norwalk - and thats saying a lot!
Absolutely try the beefteki sandwich or platter. Also the patriarch makes a rice pudding. Its amazing - and I dont usually like rice pudding.
We've gone here with 9-10 for a family dinner, and with another couple for a delicious and romantic double date.
This place is so tucked away, you'd never know its here. But there are ALWAYS patrons there.
It's our favorite weeknight place to order food.

“You don't have to go to NY for great Greek food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Pontos Taverna has some of the best home style Greek cooking around! My husband and I would always travel to Astoria in New York but since Pontos opened there is no reason to travel when this little gem is in our back yard! The food is always fresh and tasty. The Kiriakidis family who own the restaurant always makes you feel welcome and all of the waitresses are very attentive and friendly, even if the place is crazy busy! We always had a wonderful experience every time we go there. Make sure you put this place on your list!

“Best Greek food around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

Overall, Pontos Taverna is the best place to get Greek food without going to Greece. Everyone is so nice, which makes the whole experience more enjoyable. I could eat there every weekend!
