We went Saturday night - around 530pm and the place was already half full with the rush peaking around 730pm according to the waiter. The Lamb Souvlaki dinner was excellent. The Lamb in particular was cooked perfectly at medium. Portion size is quite generous, especially...More

We enjoyed a wonderful birthday lunch honouring my wife and one of our daughters in law. Service was attentive but not intrusive and the menu offered plenty of variety. The space had been renovated since our last visit giving it a light and airy atmosphere....More

Never disappointed when we come here for dinner. The place is small and full of customers always. The wait staff manage to serve you well and be sufficiently attentive. The food is fabulous! Very tasty and flavourful. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

Went for lunch once. Enjoyed the apps we got, baba ghanouj and grilled octopus. Got the sea bass as a main. The main was pretty average tasting. Not that the restaurant was bad but it was definitely over priced because it is located downtown Oakville....More
