This has been around for ages. Family owned and managed. Average +. Depending on the weather, you have a choice between poolside (open air) and under the large thatched "hut" The staff are on the elderly side and have been with the restaurant for ages....More

La Piscine is an ideal place to eat Greek food specialties as well as local and international food. Should give a try every two weeks

Brought 9 clients here to eat yesterday evening. The Atmosphere is very nice. We dined by the poolside. Service was excellent especially considering we were a large group. The food was also excellent.
