    Zucchini cakes with tzatziki were delicious as was the octopus. My lamb shank was luke warm and even when heated up the orzo was way too salty. For such a high price and high rating I expect better

    We started with the baked feta and the grilled, stuffed calamari (both delicious). We had 3 people, so we chose 2 entrees - the chicken and ribeye, & they sliced it for us to share!
  • Wilson F.
    Elegant space and delicious Greek fare though sitting squarely on the high end of the scale. For those who know and love Greece and its simplicity it feels a bit chichi.

    I love this place. I never leave here without the lamb meatballs & zucchini cakes. The portions are small enough that you can order them like tapas.

    Try the Goat Stew - Wasn't on the menu but it had goat, soft cheese, artichoke hearts and a killer sauce. I love goat stew at Kokkari, and not just because I'm a Capricorn!

    After a cathartic Greek meal, enjoy a Greek coffee cooked over hot sand, but leave that last sip for the gods. Oh, and you could probably stand up in that fireplace, but don’t try it. - Inspector
