Dropped in for a drink only as it was a scorcher of a day. What I liked was that they didn't try and push a menu on you when they knew we just wanted a drink. Service was good and we both went away happy.

This was a very nice restaurant by the first look, and the staff seemed nice. At first the service went on like it usually does with shared plesantries, and the food that came in, mousaka, lamb in wine sauce and chicken souvlaki was very good!...More

We only ate there once during our stay. Tasty and delicious fish, and the staff was very pleasant. Nice atmosphere, and the view of Kolymbari and the ocean is magnificent. Will be back.

Andreas welcomed us always with a smile and warmth. He made us and our children feel so at home and served fantastic food and of course lots of Raki. We went back several times....can highly recommend it.
