Lovely set menu including drinks at €10 per person. Lots of different simple Greek dishes in a traditional setting. Waiter was friendly and spoke great English. Would recommend and visit again.

We stopped in this restaurant for lunch by chance and enjoyed the best home made food in Greece. We took whatever the lady of the house had prepared (mousaka, dolmadakia and greek salad). It was simply heavenly and cost only 10 Euros per person. If...More

I have to agree with a reviewer above, the owner is a real character and the setting is amazing - but the pork was unforgettable. If/when I go back to the Greek Islands, this place is definitely on the return list!
