We know seafood.
We opened our doors to the Columbia community in 2002. But our family’s deep love of seafood is actually anchored in Xios, Greece. With our home and our heritage connected to the sea, seafood is a staple in our family’s mediterranean diet. And we’re passionate about sharing it with all the seafood lovers in South Carolina!
Greek Born. Carolina Raised.
Our family patriarch, “Christos,” fell in love with America the first time he came to visit the States back in 1978.
When he relocated our entire family to the U.S.A. from Greece, he brought along time-honored recipes and cooking techniques that have been passed on from generation to generation.
Christos opened his first seafood restaurant more than 30 years ago. Today, Christos is better known as “Papou.”
He doesn’t really run the restaurant anymore. He mostly runs after his 9 grandkids.
From our family to yours, we hope to sea you soon.
