Greek | Astoria, Queens

We came to Rafina for a little Greek Easter dinner with some friends. It was a quiet Sunday, as most Greek Easter celebration happens after midnight the previous night, but we enjoyed our dinner. We ordered the traditional Greek Easter soup, which was on special, and it was delicious. We shared several small appetizer sized plates instead of ordering entrees, and everything was delicious. Service was friendly and attentive and not overly formal. More

Outside is quieter than inside; servers really want to serve; mushroom croquettes and skewers are highlights; if possible, get the dressing on the side of any salad, otherwise it will be swimming in it. More
