Mediterranean Rib Steak

For the entire month of September we have taken this popular dish from our dinner menu and are offering it a special price and including a small Greek salad!


Your meal will begin with a Greek salad with all the trimmings (romaine lettuce topped with Feta cheese, olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, green peppers, red onions and Greek vinaigrette dressing) and our house garlic bread.


The main entree is a 12 oz Rib Steak charbroiled to your specifications, topped with our homemade Greek sauce (lemon, olive oil and garlic) and then sprinkled with feta cheese. This is truly a one of a kind steak dinner! Served with your choice of rice pilaf or potatoes.




Enjoy with a glass of our suggested wine: Cabernet Red Wine

Dionysus - God of Wine & Fertility

Dionysus receives credit for the invention of wine, spreading the art of cultivating grapes and for re-birth. Being the son of Zeus and Semele, he is the only god to have a mortal parent. He was a follower of the arts and theater but the "other" side of his personality was filled with madness, drunkenness and rage. Greek theater developed out of worship for Dionysus in Athens, and the theater of Dionysus, located at the Acropolis, would hold 17,000 people.

Average September Weather in Athens

Let's take a look at what kind of weather our friends in Greece can expect this time of year.

Average temperature: 74 degrees F, with lows around 66 degrees and highs up to 82 degrees. The water temperature is a perfect 75 degrees making September a great month to visit Greece. Plus, the crowds of the really busy summer tourist season have died down just a bit, making things more relaxed and accessible.
