We just celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary by renewing our vows with family and a couple of our neighbors. As a gift, we were given a gift certificate to Asteras. We had never been before and were anxious to go and try it out.
We made reservations (thank goodness) and arrived really hungary. We ordered our usual beverage, and they brought out a dip called Melitzanosalada (creamy eggplant dip) with a plate of their own pitas (hot and buttery slices). We ate that all up and I asked to be able to buy a container of the dip to take home. You won’t believe how good this is. A short while later, we ordered another plate of the pitas and gave that a good scare.
Our dinner order was Paidakia (rack of lamb chops on the grill) for Don and I ordered the Garlic Prawns, sauteed with butter and lemon. These, of course, arrive with the usual rice, potatoes, vegetable and Greek salad.
WHEW! It was delicious.
What was awesome to watch are the servers who have to run up and down a very long staircase to the tables outside and that means carrying glasses, water jugs, drinks, food and bring it all back up again to the kitchen The movement is constant with no breaks or gasping for air.. There isn’t a drop of fat on any of these kids and they are constantly on the move. I might add, we were blessed with being able to walk up the ramp to enter and eat inside.
Our main server, Kaelyn, was awesome. These servers help each other out, the owners also pitch in bringing food, removing plates, etc. and expediting the orders as they are BUSY.
At the end of our meal we were given a complimentary shot glass each of ouzo/lemonade. Good as it was it almost did me in. Don doesn’t drink and I just could not drink his shot. What a shame!
Loved this place. Will definitely be back. Make your reservations and go. WOW!
