    The Buffet for $12.95 is great. Food is excellent and their bread and fresh olive oil is tasty together. The garden seating is great and since I'm on vacation I will make my way back here one day.

    The garden is the best place to sit. The food is sublime. During lunch hours they have the buffet and you can have a very good lunch for the price of 2 sandwiches in Midtown Manhattan

    First thing's first: the food is excellent. With menu items from various parts of Greece, it's a culinary tour. Owned by a Cypriot couple it has an authentic family feel to it. Highly recommended.

    This is a cool little place, the garden in the back is a must. Everything our party had was really good on the menu, so dont think you can go wrong.

    The sautéed shrimp and feta cheese appetizer for two is to diiiie for! Expensive! But way so worth it. I could it for every meal. Or just constantly without stopping.

    Service is great! Food is okay, but desserts are a pass. Baklava has no layers. Our party ordered one of each and all were unimpressed.

    A total rip off!! The $12.95 lunch buffet turned into $50+ They kept bringing us items that we didn't order and charged us for them. Food was poor and dolmades were canned. Stay away!!!!!
