Food was good. Flaming cheese appetiser was delicious. My husband got the shrimp fettuccini Greek style which was delicious. I got the salmon which was ok. It tasted like it was previously frozen and a little mushy at bottom. Top was browned and crusted just right. I got it with veggies which were steamed and nothing special. Custard dessert was delicious.
Gas fireplace was warm and cozy.

We visited early this evening..a cold winter Wednesday evening in Dec. and, not surprisingly, had the restaurant to ourselves; though a couple of other parties arrived near the end of our meal. It being off season and the middle of the week we weren’t surprised to be solo for much of our dinner. It made the evening that much more special. The ambiance is very homey and the gas fireplace was perfect for a cold night outside. There is also a nice sit down bar out front. The owner’s/chef’s wife (a native Albanian who has however been in the U.S. for more than 20 years was our hostess and waitress. She was personable and quite attentive. I started with a bowl of traditional Greek lemon a favorite dish of ours at Greek restaurants. It too was quite delicious. A very substantial portion for the price, well grilled, not chewy at all (unlike some places we have ordered it from) and with substantial in number and size capers. My wife also loved the sauce it was made in. We thought we were going simpler by ordering a falafel wrap (her) and a feta burger but they too were both substantial in size. My burger came with a generous slice of feta and was delicious. My wife found her wrap to be a bit dry but a bit of tziki from the kitchen helped to provide more moistness. We were full beyond words when we were done. We certainly recommend the Aegean.

Four of us had an excellent meal of grilled octopus and lamb ragu. Dessert was an excellent array of orange sorbet and two other delicious Greek desserts. We were first ushered to a table that was a bit out in the open and right away they moved us to something more quiet and private at the back. The service was excellent, if even a bit too fast as we weren't quite finished with the appetizer before the main arrived. But everyone was very helpful and pleasant. We live in the neighborhood and will definitely return.

We went on a Tuesday night with a party of 4. We ordered the saganaki (flaming cheese)as an appetizer. It tasted good, but it definitely wasn’t worthy of the $16 price. My father had the lamb stew. I had read online the mixed reviews on this dish, but I didn’t mention it it to him. Not surprisingly, it was quite bland. It could’ve been beef, it didn’t have much seasoning either. My husband had the spanikopita, which he said was a little dry but tasty. However, my sister and I had the Greek shrimp scampi, which was really fantastic! Super dim lighting, so bring your phone to help read the menu. Overall, I wouldn’t go out of the way to try this restaurant, but if I’m in the neighborhood I’d go back for the scampi.

This place was recommended by the hotel we were staying at even though it was late and the staff was visible exhausted, They could not have been more professional and courteous. The place was very busy and it was in the middle of the week. Food was tasty and arrived promptly the menu was extensive and a lovely wine list. Plenty of parking so if you are visiting the Berkshires this is a nice respite from all the sightseeing.

Love the food, of course, but the setting was also wonderful. We ate outside in the garden area. Although right next to Route 7, the plants and terracotta and pots gave it charm and shielded from the noise of the road. The greek wined were excellent. The hummus and eggplant and tzatziki mezze were of high quality. My wife's moussaka was first class. My octopus not so much. A bit burned. Tasted reheated. I would not have it again. But we will be back. We now know where the value is. And I am dying to try their fried sardines.

Very pleasant afternoon lunch for 4 people. Grilled octopus was excellent as were lamb (done just right at medium rare) shish-kabob. Friendly and efficient service and not too intrusive as some servers can be. Also as one of the few restaurants in Gt. Barrington Mass that is on Open Table, we appreciated being able to make a reservation ahead. We make this a local favorite.

My wife and I enjoyed eating outside on their covered patio. We both had fish that was grilled perfectly. The salmon in my mixed seafood grill was moist and juicy. My wife ordered her salmon well done, and she got it well done. Both dishes were served at the same time. It’s clear to me the chef really knows how to grill fresh fish exactly as ordered.

The paklavah dessert was clearly homemade and delicious.

Our server was particularly friendly. I asked if they might have a seat cushion and 2 were brought to our table within a few minutes.

We will be back the next time we are in or near Great Barrington.

Servers were very sweet and very helpful when we asked about the town as we were simply visiting. The food is outstanding and authentic - that comes from Greek food lovers! It was a slow lunch, but the peace and quiet and the open ambiance outdoors was wonderful. The inside was cool, spacious with beautiful dark wood. I will be back!
