Description: THE GREEK is a local gem in Jeffreys Bay, situated near the beach it is the perfect spot for great food and wine. With world travelers, locals, foodies and families visiting THE GREEK daily. Once you have been to THE GREEK you will forever be part of THE GREEK's family. The success of THE GREEK is down to 3 beliefs. 1. We do everything the GREEK way: We only use the best fresh local produce cooked the authentic greek way in clay ovens and open grills. 2. The second belief is, a restaurant is more than just food, it is about good company, good music, good atmosphere, good conversation and becoming food friends. 3. Uncle George's philosophy on life, food, love and everything in between,

The restaurant was not extremely busy but since we arrive the service was shocking or rather non exsisting and food well the calamarie was absulutely drenched in very salty sauce and really tough. " because its local" and prawns drenched in so much sauce u can't taste prawns and some was raw I was really dissapointed as this restaurant was recommended by some friends but sadly the Greek will never see us again

Usual Greek Shenanigans...wonderful meze platters Greek finger dishes and charm that only the Greeks can have. The problem with a Greek restaurant is you either take the Meze platters and /or numerous finger foods or you take a main course...both would be too much in my opinion.
Similar to other Greek establishments save for the view.
A bit noisy for my liking but a pleasant experience non the less. The Greek palette is an acquired taste but if I tell you my meze dishes conjured up images and tastes from the motherland you will immediately understand that it was good and well worth mentioning.

When deciding where to host your birthday-dinner, is always an easy one if The Greek is on the cards. With an electric atmosphere where celebration is a way of life, breaking plates and shouting "HOPA" is at the order of the day, going to The Greek to celebrate is always a good choice.
The food just adds to the good experience, the friendly and efficient staff just add to a very happy birthday.
The "daily specials" make the dinner most affordable and are worth every penny. The meat is always prepared exactly to your request. The wine and other beverages are always cold and fresh.
The Greek is a must when in Jeffreys Bay . You wont regret it.
