we had a really good evening, but the experience was a little different than expected. one arrived in a city that felt staged for the show. you came directly to the food, which was a buffet with various Greek dishes. the buffet was nice, but nothing special - you could take as much as you wanted and the same with the wine. the show was very fun and different and there was both live music and dancers. you could once in a while get up and dance along, but without learning anything traditional, as there were many people up and dancing along. there were many families, but mostly a mixture. the description is not intended to be negative, as we had a wildly fun evening and would have given the experience more stars, but it was, as I said, just a slightly different experience than expected :)
