Where the locals eat during winter, that's the place where you can taste the most authentic traditional dishes. Lunch at the old tavern try not to miss. Every dish tastes heavenly. This year we moved to Crete for ever and that's already my most favourite...More

A real Greek looking Taverna. Called in for Lunch. The food was ok, but not outstanding. I had Stuffed Mushrooms and my friend had a Bean Dish, looked a bit like Bean Stew. I must admit I have had better Stuffed Mushrooms, but my friend...More

Used to be my favourite in Vamos, with just 'being on the roadside' the only disadvantage, but they have now installed a tv which I hate in a restaurant and I think the atmosphere has changed. I will eat elsewhere unless it changes back again.

If we had not been to another restaurant two miles away currently rated higher on this site we might have thought this good. It is a nice place and all the food we received was good. However the service paled in comparison with haphazard delivery...More

You can usually tell if a place is any good by the amount of locals eating there. Happily this place seems to have its fair share of them. We decided to do as our hotel advised and have a selection of starters rather than a...More
