This is one of the few restaurants where you could just walk up and order one of everything on the menu, because EVERYTHING is good here. Although they list it as a special, spanakopita (spinach and feta in phyllo pastry) is available all the time (and it is indeed quite special). The hummous and babaghanoush are very good and just heavy enough with garlic to make it good date food. I would also recommend the avgolemono soup, which is tangy and slightly salty and whets the appetite for more delights to come. Meats for the gyros include roasted lamb, chicken, and a fish of the day.
Bring your billfold, folks -- they don't take credit cards, but it's worth the trouble (hell, I'd pay in Kruggerands if it was necessary - the food is that good). They also don't have a liquor license, but you can bring a good bottle of wine with you and drink it there.
The Olive Tree Cafe is a little out of the way for many tourists and slightly inconvenient for not accepting plastic, but worth the trouble. It has some of the best Greek food this side of Athens and definitely the best in Hawaii!
