About the Restaurant

Astoria has no shortage of Greek restaurants, but few are as attractively situated as this homey taverna across from Astoria Park. Inside, film stills from Greek movies and exposed brick accent yellow and terra-cotta colored walls; in winter, a fireplace keeps things toasty. The close but comfortable tables host neighborhood families and couples who appreciate traditional cooking at sensible prices. Meze meant for sharing include tzantziki (yogurt dip flavored with cucumber, garlic, and dill), shrimp kataifi (wrapped in crispy pastry and served with mustard sauce), saganaki (baked cheese) and pastroumali (phyllo stuffed with sliced dried beef and cheese.) Main courses like swordfish kebabs, grilled sardines and lamb chops are complemented by a Hellenic wine list and finished with a rotating roster of desserts offered on the house. While reservations are relatively easy to get, they are worth making — particularly if you'd like an outdoor table with a view of the East River and the Triborough bridges on a summer evening.
