The view from this restaurant is one of the best in New Westminster. Cliffside it overlooks the new waterside park and the Fraser River. I would pass on the fasolada soup but their grilled calamari was really good. I also really liked the moussaka. The night I was there they had ekmek, this incredibly addictive dessert. If they have it... More

It's just one of those things, like going to the home restaurant and getting the meatloaf. I can't even talk myself into getting anything else. It's just really good and i can't resist. Try it and you'll see...

Lovely atmosphere; nice Mediterranean decoration; we were comfortably seated in a side room with a group of 15+. Food tasted excellent, serving was timely and friendly. This is a place to go back and enjoy another tasty Greek food next time.

We had a great evening here on March 5th with very special friends. We have always liked this place but are even more impressed with how it looks now that they have done a major reno. As always the food was great and the service was fine. Our server was new to this restaurant and was a little unsure of... More

Always a welcome site, with the Fraser River - and river business as backdrop. Great menu, loaded plates, the best pita bread and tantalizing calamari appetizers. Even at dinner - on the return from the airport - portions that beg for a doggy-bag. Good service from long-time staff. a coming-and-going of patrons, even on a weekday.

However, the other day we dined with friends for lunch but we were really disappointed with the quality and presentation of our meals. Two people ordered lamb souvlaki, one person ordered roast lamb and I ordered... More
