Family run taverna with simple yet truly amazing food, fresh fish, best vegetables, all cooked as a proper Greek grandma would. The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed, you feel welcomed the moment you step into the restaurant.

Went twice for dinner and had moussaka, souvlaki and fava. The food was very tasty and came rather fast. There's a lot of local people coming for late dinner - which means they appreciate the food. Nice family-like atmosphere and meals at reasonable cost.
