The reviews would lead you to expect something more. We went here for lunch with friends, and the food was average. The atmosphere is that of a diner. So, again, average. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was served promptly. Prices were reasonable. It would be a good place for families. Unfortunately, I have nothing to rave... More

In Fairfax for a college visit and wanted to try a local restaurant. Checked out Trip Advisor and found Havabite Eatery. It seemed to have something for everyone. A bit of Italian and a bit of Greek. From the outside it looks like a small little place, yet inviting. Was afraid it would be chilly inside since the door opens... More

This little restaurant is a jewel. Owned and run by a local family, they prepare wonderful dishes: Italian and Mediterranean, The waitress, and owner, I found out, recommended the Salmon, and I was not disappointed, delicious!

Always love coming here. Have been doing so for more than 15 years. As I now live out of the area I visit every chance I get.

Visited the small, neighborhood restaurant prior to an event at George Mason Performing Arts Center. The service was prompt, friendly, and professional. Each of us had a cold, crisp, delicious entree-sized Greek salad with awesome dressing. A complimentary basket of delicious bread was also served. Can't wait to return for Greek delicacies. The only challenge is parking but Fairfax has... More

Excellent hole in the wall cafe serving very tasty Greek food! I had the Greek salad as a starter and the pork chops for the entre and both were delicious. The salad came with a stuffed grape leaf as a garnish which is like getting biscuits with your beer! The pork chops were roasted just a touch more than I... More

We've been going there for years for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Never disappointed. Good solid food at affordable prices and excellent service. It's cozy, warm and friendly. On our last recent visit for dinner we had the lamb shank special, which was melt in your mouth tender and delicious. I managed to make a mess by spilling our water, but... More

Greek food at its best! Wonderful salads; wonderfully done gyro meat & pita bread; served with wonderfully prepared tzatziki sauce. This is the place you put on your "go to" list when you want a real treat or to show off to visitors. Tip: Order the $11.95 Gyro Plate with Greek Salad and you won't go away hungry. Oh! And... More
