    Everything we tried was so very delicious: grilled octopus, fried eggplant and zucchini, snapper, potatoes and Greek salad. Left insanely stuffed and happy.

    Grilled Octopus & Calamari

  • Russell H.

    Very much a greek seafood spot. No mousakka or other greek dishes. Grilled octopus, fried cheese, salad, and grilled shrimp recommended. Keep it simple here, they do simple the best.

    Where you go to impress your uncultured friends. Grilled calamari, lemon potato, and house wine are excellent! To be honest, can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

  • Tom W.

    The food is excellent. But the inside is super noisy with kitchen noises and not fun. Sit outside.

    The most famous Greek restaurant in Astoria still got it. Come here to try the seafood, you will realize that's the specialty in the menu, ask for any whole fish grilled.

  • Michelle

    As a Greek, it's as close to home cooking as you'll get. Any seafood dish you order is amazing. I would recommend the octopus, grilled calamari, barbounia (μπαρμπούνι) along with pikilia (ποικιλία)

    Michelle · April 21
  • Milena L.

    Grilled octopus, craba and calmari, everything is delicious, but the ambience....

    The grilled octopus is the best seafood in NYC, making our list of "The Tastes That Make the City: NYC Edition." Read more

  • dawn.in.newyork

    Always long waiting lines. Servers often offer free small glasses of wine for people in the line. Must get the grilled octopus leg to start! The best greek place in Astoria.

  • Julia L.

    Their complimentary loaf of bread is the best thing I've ever put in my mouth (almost). The octopus was alright -- came out a little cold. Their portions are HUGE. Take some home and save it for later

  • Ranu R.

    Get there early to avoid a wait or grab a drink at nearby MP. Order: octopus, tzatziki, fried sardines, peasant salad and crab stuffed sole, and leave so happy.

    everybody is crazy about this place but I don't get it. Yes is fresh but is greasy and the salad chunks are humongous. I also did not liked the ambiance. the wait is not worthy. not for me.

    The lunch deals are great. I always recommend the sardines or lamb, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

    Sublime Greek dishes, a real Astoria legend! Be prepared to wait in line any time, any day... but it's totally worth it.
