We arrived by taxi from Nidri (6 euros). The place had just opened for the evening and we sat at the front with its stunning view of Nidri and the islands. We placed our order, but misunderstood that the mixed grill was for two. Dimitri immediately appeared to clarify our order. How many places would have simply served the extra... More

Visited this wonderful restaurant as a group of 10. We all had something different and everybody enjoyed their food and it was brought out to us in a timely manner and piping hot. The service is good and the prices even better. We got a taxi up from Nidri which only cost 8 euros each way. Well worth a visit... More

We took a taxi from the Main Street in Nidri (6 euros) and booked him for a return later. Comfy car and good driver. There is a lovely view of Nidri from the balcony, which has tables. The food was good, though the menu was a little sparse. The cats were rather irritating. As soon as I was served with... More

Totally buzzing but you will have a long meal .. The location is fantastic and the staff are very helpful but all orders and bills are through Dimitri. The food was super and after we had got drinks and starters we were happy to watch the views of the bay and the business inside. Dimitri recommended a local Levkadas red... More

The location is nice-up in the mountain with a beautiful view, but we had to wait more than 30min to order and more than hour for our meals. There is no sea food. We ordered suvlakis and the meat smells really bad-I assume it was old. In the end of the dinner we had wait again 30min for the bill...

We went based on the good review it had but .... unfortunately we cannot review the food as we were unable to order. There are two waiters for 20 tables. 30minutes passed while we requested several times to order. Orders were taken for tables that came after us. Total haos in there organisation. Finally we got upset and left.

Wow! What a find! Incredible views, delicious food and friendly staff. As a group of 6, we shared nearly all the wonderful starters...nothing less than perfect. The meat eaters shared a wonderful meaty feast and the vegetarian had the Briam. You can jump in a taxi from Nydri for €6. This was the best evening and meal from our week... More

Great spot to go on arrival in town. From the hill you get a good overview of the bay. A light breeze also keeps you cool as you sit on this nice and typical taverna veranda. We came for lunch and even though they were closed the owner gave us special attention. We were then surprised by some if best... More

A taxi up to the taverna was 7 euros but the excellent, authentic Greek food is less expensive than in the town which balanced the cost of getting there. Food was really excellent, and service was friendl. The views over the bay and town as the sun set were really rather special.. Definately worth a visit and somewhere we would... More

This restaurant is definitely not in Nidri but in Geni, a 15-20 minute drive. A really great location with stunning views and could be such a great place, but the food was very average and to get service is a real effort. It took a long time to take the order, cook the food and the plates were left on... More
