Great spot for take-out or dine-in. Authentic Greek food and lots of choices. Salad with Greek dressing, grape leaves, Greek rice, spanakopita and so on. On main street and easy to find, Easy parking.

This is my favorite Greek place in WS. The full menu, great wines and super service. Vegetarians and vegans can eat here. Excellent spanakopita, soups and vegetarian moussaka.

The grilled chicken here is awesome! The sides are full of flavor, I recommend the lemon potatoes and vegetables.

I've been here twice, it's ok. Had the moussaka, very greasy. 2 flies wouldn't leave us alone (not really their fault). The calamare was rubbery. The Greek salad was decent, but should come with puta bread.

We have talked about stopping here for years. Today we decided to give it a try. The only reason I'm upset is that we haven't tried it before. We love good Greek food and they have it perfected. Service was exceptional. Food was very fresh...More
