we were transported to a Greek island.

From the moment we stepped through the door, we were transported to a Greek island. Amazing, authentic Greek food and great service. I am very thankful to have stumbled across this restaurant. I will be recommending it to friends and family and plan to be back soon, hopefully to catch some live music on a Friday or Saturday night!

Όλα πολύ ωραία η μουσική μόνο πολύ δυνατή.


Beautiful home cooked Greek meals. One of the best in Sydney if not the Best.


Really authentic and exceptional quality Greek food and menu - best Ive had for some time. The atmosphere was inviting and felt like we were transported back to Greece. The owner and staff were friendly and accommodating - great place for families.

El Mo 20/02/2022

The food served here is very traditional. Being from a Greek family and having sampled meals from tavernas all over Greece this food was on par. Grilled Octopus cooked to perfection. The Prawn Saganaki was excellent with bread supplied to mop up the delicious tomato...based sauce. Home made fries with oregano. Great Tzatziki and Tirokafteri. This was our first time and we didn't try meat but we will when we go back. Highly recommended. More

Pavlos M 12/07/2020

Came here for a family dinner and really enjoyed the food. I have travelled to Greece twice and experienced lots of home cooking from Greek friends so I had high expectations for the food. I was not disappointed! My favourites were the dips, dolmades and...the meatball soup. The loukomades and bougatsa were also delicious for dessert. The restaurant is family run and all staff are super friendly. The restaurant had a good Greek vibe with Greek music too More
