Delicious Greek food and customer service! This tiny place tucked away on a corner Laguna Niguel is outstanding. I ordered the roasted chicken dinner to go as well.

Food was very tasty and we had 2 good meals, stuffed peppers and a shrimp dish. It was just about 20% more expensive than I expected.

The ambiance is quaint for a strip center restaurant. The service was spot-on. The food consisted of my wife's Lamb Pot Roast which was very tasty. I had the Leg of Lamb which must have been a baby lamb. The 4 legs were very small compared to other places I had them. Where the seasoning was they were good but unfortunately half of the legs were bland. They were out of the"chef's choice" red wine, however the substitute recommended was very good. The prices were higher than expected (for what you get) but post pandemic seems to have added about 20% to each item.
I would recommend them as the many other choices on the menu looked really good! Looking forward to giving 😀 them another try.

We are from Europe, my wife is Greek so we can confirm that they serve authentic Greek food. It tasted fantastic and we like also the large selection of Greek wines - all at reasonable prices in great atmosphere with very kind staff.

Overall, the food was delicious. The cheesy olive dip with pita which was placed on our table upon sit down was yummy. The zucchini chips were delicious. The gyro plate and rack of lamb were delicious along with the fries. The moussaka was very good and the lemon potatoes were excellent. I did not like the bechamel on top as much as on other moussakas. I will try something else when we return.

3/27/21 Seating inside & out under a canopy is available appropriately distanced. The staff (Mary and the 2 guys) are all masked and very quick and efficient. Take out was busy too. The greek red is from Mount Athos, a UNESCO site. ($45/bottle) Entrees vary up to $24. Flavor is excellent.

Service was extremely slow. They never served the fifth entree for one of our party members. We got tired of waiting and gave up on them. Food was not good and service was extremely slow.

Authentic Greek food (from one who is Greek).

Dolmathes (ντολμαδάκια με κιμά) were meaty with the lemon/egg sauce - spot on!

Also the stuffed cabbage and the taramosalata, and authentic sheep milk feta.

This is Greek food at its best!

My family and I had a fantastic time at Tastes of Greece! We've traveled to Mykonos, Athens and Santorini a few years ago and we still talk about how much we miss the food and the people. Well, now we know about Tastes of Greece and now when we miss the food, we will definitely go to Tastes of Greece! The food, the service and the vibe was on point. They even their wine selection was all about Greece! Loved it!

We wanted to like this restaurant more than we did. The food wasn’t very fresh and the kitchen noise was loud with only 3 tables of a couple people seated.
The prices are very high for what they serve.
