Lourdas is right next to the Bryn Mawr train station. It's a tiny hole in the wall. It's simple, a square room with some cheap art of Greece hung on the walls. Nothing applying in it's decor.
The wait staff is very slow. They also can be a little rude at times. My favorite Lourdas story is once coming off the train I popped in to get an evening reservation. The man who let me in. (The were closed, but staff was inside) was so rude. He was amazed that anyone would come in when they were closed to ask for a reservation. He told me they do NOT take reservations from walk ins and I had to call. So I stepped outside and called from my cell phone 20 feet away and the same guy took my reservation over the phone! Other times when I have called they can be rude over the phone about taking a reservation.
The place is always busy. The food is slow to arrive and trying to flag down a waiter for a refill or to even order can be a task. They seem to like walk by and not look in your direction if your hand is raised or you try to catch their eye.
The food is okay and can be hit or miss. The last time I had lamb and it was very greasy as were my potatoes. I am convinced that if this was in Center City the place would be empty (too many other, better choices). But this is Bryn Mawr and their are not a lot of choices out here for good dining!
Be warned - they do NOT take credit cards (cash only) and it's BYOB (bring your own wine). Also it's very pricey for what you get.
