Greek Restaurant
“This restaurant is relatively new to Princeton and has become a very popular place to dine. The food is absolutely delicious and the wait staff treats you like an old friend. The ambiance is pleasing and inviting with some outdoor seating. This restaurant is off the beat and path, but short walk from the University. One comment, the noise level can gets high on a Saturday night and for those hard of hearing, pick a different time to visit. The acoustics in the restaurant magnifies the noise.”
