We loved Pier House so decided to try Mythos. The food & service are excellent! We have taken all of our visiting friends for dinner & all can’t wait to come back. My Avalon friend was so impressed that she brought her foodie & most particular Greek side of the family for dinner & everyone was thrilled with their appetizer & dinner choices! Please stay at this location as it’s right around the corner from our beach house:). Not to say it would again be worth the bike ride to the other side of town!

Great new restaurant located on Bank St in the old Frescos location. Great seafood items including whole fish and lamb items for the true Mediterranean menu. Calamari was delicate & fresh, everyone enjoyed their dinners. The Baklava was flakey & delicious.

The place seemed empty when we got there, which made us a bit nervous, but filled up as the night went on. Both salads and entree's were delicious and gluten free. Our server was equally good. Knowledgeable, friendly, attentive. Greek influence was there, but not overpowering. Would highly recommend.

Second time at cape may ...first time at mythoe.
Loved the Mediterranean menu as we strolled earlier in the day looking for a dinner spot later prior to attending a play at the theater . Made reservations through OpenTable after we got back to the hotel. Dinner was delicious...LOVED it so much, my wife and I had dinner there the next day. (Delighted to learn that it was operated by the same owner who ran the restaurant at the hotel we were staying...The Pier House -which was closed for renovations. Can't wait to eat at both places next summer).

The food was alright; not bad but not good... just average. I would not race back to Mythoes. There are too many good restaurants in Cape May to settle for an "alright" dining experience.

Food brought back memories of the Pier House which was our favorite restaurant bar none. The problem at the restaurant's current location is the lack of ambiance. We were seated at a small 2-top on the porch with the other diners practically at our elbows. Very tight and does not lend itself to private conversation. The food is still excellent and hopefully we'll be able to enjoy it at the new Pier House when construction is completed.

The menu is such that its almost impossible to choose. Everything looked great and the Pork Chop I had was the best I've ever had anywhere. The watermelon salad, a staple from the pier house, was also delicious.

Our family all thoroughly enjoyed the Greek restaurant that replaced Frescos in Cape May. Every bit as good and tasty. Table was ready for us when we arrived on a busy Friday night and our waiter was able to answer all of our questions knowledgeably. It is a bit noisy but it is in an old Victorian home converted to a restaurant so you should expect that.

All the meals and appys at our table were prepared well and were tasty. My steak was the highest priced item on the menu and and had too much grizzle. I wouldn't expect that quality of a cut of meat in a place like this.

Best octopus app in CM period! So tender and delicious. Bronzino is moist and flavorful. My wife said the salmon was the best she had all summer. We love this place and hope that when they open the peer house they will also keep this location as well.

All the previous good reviews were spot on. The porch is a quiet retreat from the louder main restaurant and is basically set up as tables for 2. Fortunately, that is where we were seated. The food and service were both excellent. It is byob but you can also purchase bottles of local wine. I suggest doing that.

This is a bit of a weird place. They say that the entire crew is from another restaurant that is under total reconstruction. They said this was an Italian restaurant for many years and now Greek. Do not have shrimp and lobster saganaki. This dish is a mess, with rice and a frozen lobster tail. Little, if any taste, and nothing like the wonderful Greek seafood I expected. Even the properly cooked lamb chops were served on a pile of mushy mashed potatoes. Jammed in on the porch w waiters struggling to serve. There are far better Cape May choices. Very disappointing.

We have gone to Pier House every year for at least 5 years, so were glad to hear that we could follow them to Mythos. The menu was basically the same, and we all enjoyed our meals. Our server was very helpful and attentive. My husband isn't a Mediterranean food fan, but he is always happy with his meals here. My very picky mother-in-law was happy as well. We loved the new digs, the atmosphere was warmer and more comfortable. A great experience overall.

Third visit in two weeks--and only gets better. Disclosure: we loved Frescos (the prior Italian restaurant that occupied this beautifully restored Victorian home) so we were anxious about trying this newcomer---but have been blown away by the creative Greek- Mediterranean cuisine turned out by the new brother chefs. On my first visit I had the "makaronia" a Greek version of a pasta bolognese--and it was hard to move on to anything else--but: for apps: the meatballs, the stuffed peppers, the excuisite watermelon and feta salad, grilled octopus (best ever) and then we have tried and loved the braised lamb shank, short ribs, grilled halibut --
all fabulous- creatively presented but still true to the source and brimming with natural flavor.
Lisa and Alycia are fabulous servers- attentive and naturally friendly; and hostess Amanda is helpful and accomodating. FIVE STARS PLUS
