This gem of an eatery has great food and service. It is a relaxed, intimate bistro with an eclectic, partially Greek, menu and friendly, knowledgeable wait staff. The food is excellent. They have specials on bottles of wine at least once per week. It is...More

About 8 of us went for dinner on a weeknight. We ordered a lot of different food to share and it was ALL good! The server wasn't exactly friendly/welcoming though, which was a little off-putting. I love Greek food though so I'd love to go...More

Went here Saturday night. This is good comfort food. Not too fancy. Not high end. Casual place with good food and wine. I had Greek salad which was great and the Gyros platter. Great combo. Come here for a moderately priced very good tasting meal.

My husband and I came here right before closing. I expect the food to be mediocre at best, but was pleasantly surprised by the freshness and heaping portions. Service was great!

I enjoyed a masterfully prepared grilled salmon on an unusual but very tasty bed of grain and veggies while my son had a burger. There is a good craft brew selection, and people watching opportunity while sitting outside. Definitely recommended!

My wife and I were promptly greeted and welcomed by staff. Both of us has the gyros, which were very favorful and easy to handle as they were wrapped like a large ice cream cone. Strong recommendation here should you find yourself in Dinkeytown.
