I haven't found too many restaurants in downtown Long Beach that I like better than this spot. Good authentic Greek food with a lot of personality. The environment is family oriented and they can serve dinner to a large group with family style portions. Belly dancers and musicians on weekends at night sometimes to set the mood. Fun place to hang and the food is legit. Will continue to come back here.

I loved this place! I came here after looking at wedding venues. Since I visited a Greek venue, I thought ok... let's eat Greek food.
So we came and were seated at the outside patio with double heat lamps - sweet.
Great service. Our girl was really attentive and always came to check up on us - which is a PLUS in my book. She also refilled my mimosa when she saw it empty. Sweet.The hostess was also really sweet.
We got the appetizer meal and each got a sandwich.
COMBO APPETIZER - $13.95
A hearty selection of Dolmathes, Keftethes, Spanakopites, Tiropites, and Kalamari,
Served with Tzantziki Sauce
For the price - and comparing with other Greek restaurants I've been to - this plate was small. My fiance and I finished it off quickly and we weren't that hungry. :P The Kalamari was delicious but very little.
CHICKEN GYRO - $8.50
Shaved Chicken Cooked on a Spit, topped with Tzantziki, Fresh Tomatoes, Red Onion, and Cucumbers, wrapped in a Pita
I liked this one a lot. The Pita was good and the shaved chicken was really good. I think better than the kabob one too.
$5 SUNDAY MIMOSAS:
Parking in the back - metered - you can pay $1 for 2 hours! PRETTY SWEET!
It's in the heart of Belmont. Really nice area to walk around - which we did.
The double heat lamps eventually became too much for the top of my head. I wish they had heat lamps that came from the bottom up, but eh. I dealt with it.
Great place. I am def coming back for the Gyro

I've been a few times. This place is one of the better options to eat at in downtown LB. They have a great variety of authentic Greek food and can also accommodate large groups quite easily with family style serving. They also provide some light entertainment with belly dancers.

**BEST MEDIOCRE FOOD IN LONG BEACH**
The moment we were seated, our waiter said that their restaurant was considered "the best" in Long Beach.
We'll see about that, buddy.
No wait, easy table at the front, and the ambiance reminded me of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding".
**DOUBLE DIP ($10.50 for two dips)**
The tzantziki and humus dips tasted fresh, but nothing I couldn't make at home or get from Trader Joe's. I wasn't that WOWed. It was borderline bland. Needed more garlic and oil in the humus.
**LAMB CHOP (4 pieces) $15.95**
New Zealand Lamb cutlets marinated in lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, and other spices were, at best, "all right". I've had better and I didn't think the meat quality was premium.
The lamb chop was served with pita, rice and vegetables. Again, somewhat bland rice and vegetables.
I thought it was rather a boring Greek dinner experience overall.
I wasn't convinced that this was the best restaurant in Long Beach.
But I would agree that it was the best MEDIOCRE food in Long Beach.
