We found this by chance as it’s just off the Main Street. The family who run it could not be more helpful. Authentic home cooked food. We ate their on 4 occasions. Highly recommended

This family run restaurant provides the best service around. They work very hard to give you a wonderful experience and food was very tasty. We returned here many nights.

Family run restaurant with the best lamb chops ever. The two brothers at front of house are very welcoming and cleverly remembered everything about all Their customers, making you feel extremely welcome. We passed this place on the way to the beach from our apartment,...it did not look anything special, but thought we would give it a try, so glad we did, we went back 3 more times in our 10 day stay, the lamb chops are to die for and cooked on the bbq by the brothers father. Food and Drinks were reasonable unlike some bars and restaurants in Agia Marina. Definitely worth a visit. My husband ordered pork cutlets,he requested a pepper sauce which was lovely too. Only issue we had was the smoking, being non smokers, there is nothing worse than trying to enjoy a your food whilst inhaling second hand smoke - we are spoilt in England with this.More

We have eaten in traditional greek restaurants for years and therefore this seemed like an obvious choice. We booked a table but were rather surprised when as a group of 4 (2 couples) we were seated at the same size table used for couples therefore...the table became rather cluttered. When the waiter came to take our order he ruled out quite a number of items saying it is too hot to eat Stifado, etc, etc and therefore we felt limited in our choice and unable to order the items he mentioned. We had starters but were very bemused when half way through eating them they brought out our main meals! The waiter said "i will just put these here" and left them perched on the only bit of space on the table. We have always been told in traditional greek restaurants "slowly, slowly, no rush enjoy your food" and encouraged to stay for as long as we want, however here we had ordered and eaten within 40 minutes. The food was nice but nothing special, but the service was really not great and we therefore did not visit again, despite walking past daily to and from our studios.More

Most mornings we would eat our breakfast here and each day it was wonderful. We ate dinner there one night and my partner had the steak on the grill and he enjoyed it very much. The family are wonderful people and very welcoming.
