The Zagat Review
The “excellently prepared” fish and seafood ( “especially the octopus” ) are “the name of the game” at these “no-frills” tavernas where “traditional” Greek specialties are “delicious” too; “huge” portions add “value” , and while no reservations can make for “painful” waits, they’re “packed” for a reason.

This place is always super busy, and for good reason. Definitely worth the wait. The service was incredible considering the number of people they were handling. You can eat quickly or linger if you want. The food was top quality. We had the sole and shrimp and they were both amazing. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu.

We came here for an early dinner on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was packed! Thank goodness it was only a 15 minute wait because we were starving. The restaurant does not take reservations, so try to get here early. Big parties will require a longer wait. The fresh olive bread in olive oil was simply divine. The fried cheese was so flavorful, delicious, and had a great texture (was not over fried or mushy). We ordered the sea bass and Mediterranean sea bass. They asked if we wanted them filleted and we said absolutely...but please be cautious as there are some remaining fish bones that they didn't catch. The side of rice was cooked to perfection and the lemon potatoes were so flavorful and infused with lemon flavor. The free dessert was very tasty. Everything we ordered paired well with the wine, which was a retsina (white wine infused with pine resin). I highly recommend trying this place out if you are in the neighborhood!

This restaurant is so Astoria! Prepare to wait, but it's so worth it! Always order large Greek salad. I love grilled swordfish, but other food is also good. Lemon potatoes are on point. And remember that there is always a small dessert at the end.
