The restaurant is renowned for it's fresh-from-the-sea fish entrees. The fish here is sold by the pound and displayed on a huge bed of ice for the customers choosing which includes

 Sea Bass, Royal Dorado, Red Snapper, Loup de Mar, Pompano, Mediterranean Porgy, Dover Sole, St. Pierre or John Dory, Sargos, Arctic Char and Rouget. If you're a fish lover, your mouth should be watering just about . . . . . . now!

The setting inside is one of coziness. Upon entering you are hit with the natural smokiness of their charcoal grills burning in the back and greeted with dark wooden beams and french doors, low lights and stone floors, all of which add to that warm homey feel.

Although we've sampled many of the dishes here during our many visits, we'd be here for a long time pointing out all the entrees you must try. So instead, the cut to the chase for must try's . . . Kolokithi (crispy zucchini and eggplant chips served with tzatziki sauce), Sardeles (charcoal grilled imported sardines with fresh lemon and herbs), Plaki (oven baked Chilean sea bass with Vidalia onions, tomato and herbs) Lavraki (Loup de Mar) paired with Greek Fries and Horta (steamed wild greens).
