Lovely gem of a restaurant. Not too expensive. Food was delicious and the staff friendly and polite. Setting was a multi-level experience with tables set between two buildings in the old town. Lovely!

This place is well worth a visit not only for the unusual surroundings (just go see for yourself) but also the tasty food served by very friendly staff (Nikos in particular). Sit upstairs if you can to get a true sense of theatre.

We were tempted by the location and extremely pleased to have given it a try. We were seated upstairs, great views, delicious food and very reasonable. The saganaki shrimp was absolutely delicious as were the country sausages and the service was excellent
