We had on dinner and one breakfast here. All good. They have Kleftiko (lamb/cheese stew in a bag) which was wondefful, and I didn't see it on anyone else's menu!

The food was very good! Prices were reasonable, especially considering it's on the sea front. Service was very good! The moussaka was very good and the beef stifado was cooked to perfection! We ate at this restaurant three times whilst we were there!

On a walking holiday the evening dinners were at this taverna - during the week no dish was repeated, and the quality of the food and service was excellent. Stelios is an excellent host, with very good friendly staff.

We had the whole bay to ourselves in April! Three course breakfast changes daily...the best local food with fab sheep yoghurt.

We stayed at Rebecca and they do have an arrangement with this restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The breakfast is more than abundant, and very nice. On request we got chocolate pasta and milk for free for our son (10 years old), coffee, orange juice, croissants, toasted bread, honey etcetera. Price Quality excellent. I do recommend the restaurant/Taverne.

Wow. Amazing place to have a breakfast lunch or dinner. Ordered the some fish dishes which were cooked beautifully. Recommended to anyone. Staff then gave a home made complimentary desert which was absolutely delish. They also gave a home brew alcohol shot which I refused as I don't drink. Very thoughtful and excellent customer service. Would visit again.. thanks

Thank soulman786
