Really excellent place. Visited by group of people and the had best food ever.
Restaurant is located in nice silent place. Only Greeks inside. Owner welcomed us, put a wine on the table. Starters - aubergines, octopus and sardines - just very good. Main dishes - beef, lamb, octopus and veal - top level of any cousine, really one of best food we ever had. For the dessert we received "fava" - grapes in sugar syrop with sour cream - the best sweet I ever had.
Must eat there!!!!!!!!

Our tour guide brought us here because we wanted a non-touristy food experience. We couldn't have asked for a better place! From the moment we came in, the owner greeted us like family and showed us what was on the menu. He made some recommendations and everything we ate was fresh and delicious. We felt like locals and I wish we had a wonderful little neighborhood place like this in Dallas.

Walked over from the Intercontinental. We ordered garlic foccacia, a margherita pizza, and a "pepperoni" calzone (the pepperoni got lost in translation with the waitress). Food was all delicious nevertheless. Fun fact to discover that the owners' family also operates a location in Syracuse, NY (have family ties there).

Excellent restaurant. The sea bream carpaccio was great. The salad with shrimps had my favorite mango fruit and from vegetables the red peppers and the carrots were enjoyable. The spearmint emphasized the taste of the salad. The ocean roll with tuna and shrimps tasteful because of the seafood that was fresh and there was also some salmon.
