Lovely little spot to soak up the atmosphere. Excellent food and the pie of the day was yummy when we visited - leek and courgette. It gets busy so worth booking in advance.

Proper "local" taverna in hillside town. Very popular which creates a good atmosphere. Traditional Greek fare but with a good selection of daily specials; recommend ordering one of these. Good value with friendly service

Have been coming here for years. Easy to say good mountain taverna basic but well cooked food. But it is much more. Always interesting specials and goes beyond the local standards. Very friendly. Good prices. Great food. Basic (but enjoyable) surroundings.
