Congratulations Grads!
Graduations and Promotions are coming up, and there’s no better way to throw a party than with some good Greek food!  “Greek fries” are always a hit with the kids, as they are arguably the best “French” fries on the Island.  Throw in some nutritious Greek salad and “finger food” specialties such as souvlakia (kabobs), and your Athenas and Apollos (Greek Gods of wisdom) will be the hit of their class!  
Check out for our full menu and visit our restaurant at the Coronado Ferry Landing today 435-1225.
