We stopped in with our young baby after a long road trip. The whole experience was just great. Really friendly lady serving and food was incredible - huge portions too. We only have a day in the locality or we’d be back! Thanks!

Better than many restaurants in Greece. Outstanding food, good service, generous helpings. Located in a lovely old house. Very busy, reservations are helpful.

As visitors from the UK, we were walking past and decided to try this restaurant, which initially looks like a private house. Very welcoming, excellent starter, followed by very tasty souvlaki main course, and beautifully light ek-mek to finish. Tasteful decor and ambience.

Even though the restaurant seemed packed and busy when we got there, they quickly accommodated is to a table. Food was delicious - we had the prawn special. The souvlaki meat is amazing just like back home.
