    Maybe the best Greek food in Florida. At 8PM on a Tues nite there was a 1 hr wait. The lamb is super. Great food and service. NOTE: They do not accept reservations. 1st come 1st serve.

    Lamb chops, shrimp, and saganaki heaven! Go often in the summer because it's IMPOSSIBLE to get in during the winter season! Easily, one of the best in FLL! Not liking their new valet fee.

    Hardly any wait if you ask to sit outside. The pastitsio and moussaka are superb: not swimming in grease and weighing a ton. Tyrokafteri (spicy feta meze) is a must!

    Really not bad for Greek food outside of Greece. Too bad they "americanize" it a bit too much. Recommendable nevertheless, especially the tzatziki and the fried zuchini!

    Для мезе все составляющие выбираешь сам, хумус с хлебом приносят сразу. Рекомендую осьминога, креветки и цукини. Отдельно возьмите питу. Еще очень рекомендую ребрышки ягненка. Суп невнятный, как везде
