We sometimes forget our local restaurants and this is one of them. Tonight we had one of the best meals and will definitely be back. The menu is extremely varied and should suit even the pickiest eaters. I am not a fan of "marinara" sauce,...More

The food was great, with very attentive wait staff. My waitress recommended the baklava cheesecake. Oh my goodness, it was amazing!!! Just take it home, if you eat too much!

We were given some free gift cards for this restaurant so we tried it twice. I am not a fan of greek food so it wasn't very good for us. The service was good and the food is ok for the right person.

We were traveling through Lincoln and found this gem on trip advisor. We started with saganaki. It was fried to melty perfection, the flames doused with fresh lemon. The pita bread is made in house and is flatter then I'm used to, but tastier as...More
