A family favourite. Great Greek food looking out over towards Magnetic Island. The meze platter is huge and easily feeds 2, which is great value. Service is great, real family atmosphere. Highly recommended for a lazy lunch anytime.

Excellent Greek food for out group lunch on 4 August 2018. Delicious calamari and excellent moussaka were high lights. All with a view to Magnetic Island across Townsville’s wonderful Strand. Well worth a visit.

I just got home after a long-haul flight. My husband took us there for lunch. Meal choices were easy (good when brain-dead from travelling). The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was delicious and quick.
