Classic Greek style restaurant in heart of Nassau, steps from the cruise ship dock. Upstairs balcony seating affords an excellent view of the bustling Bay Street. All the Greek classics, and super friendly wait staff (Rashard 👍)

Great circular bar area for cocktails and light fare. Greek salad---fabulous. But best ever--The CONCH CHOWDER!---Scrumptious! Service was very hospitable and entertaining. Bar service and tropical drinks were excellent. Recommended.

this family restaurant is well worth the climb up the stairs to reach it. The food is so good, the wines are perfect, and the ambience couldn't be better. Definitely worth a visit when you are in Nassau
